Head of Year Welcome

Welcome to Nursery

I am Mrs Abbas, Assistant Headteacher - Miss Kosar and Mrs Begum are the Nursery teachers. We have had a fantastic start to the term this year! The children have been learning about  ‘All about me’. We have had many exciting experiences. We bought in our baby photographs into school and discussed with our friends. We were discovering the different areas in nursery and playing with props and getting creative. 

This term we have been working on settling the children by giving children ample opportunity to explore the different stations and ask lots of questions. The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring the outdoor space. They enjoyed playing with the muddy kitchen and inventing different recipes. The children have shown competence in exploring their new environment and making new friends. 

Much of our focus at the start of this academic year will be on mark making , early Maths skills and building children’s spoken language. In Maths children will begin to learn about numbers. They will build confidence in counting to 10 in sequence.  This will build the foundations for recall of counting sequence and understanding number operations. 

We have amazing experiences planned throughout the year. Children will have the opportunity to observe chick eggs hatch and grow, meet the animal man, meet a policeman and work closely with their parents during workshops. The Nursery team are looking forward to working with you and your children this year and we are very excited for all the amazing things ahead!
