Nursery

Welcome to Nursery

 

Please find below the school expectations for particular ages when your child starts with us here at St Michael's. We have created age typical learning maps for 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds. As you will see, we like to be ambitious and want only the best for our children. 

Summer, term 1, 2022- Around the World

Welcome to St Michael's Nursery, during this summer 1 term, our focus topic is 'around the world'.

This around the world topic offers the children a vast array of opportunities to explore diverse aspects of life experiences and various cultures from around the world.

We have linked some relevant stories to this topic that will inspire us to have good discussions and help build our knowledge of people and places we don't always get to experience frequently, these include:

 

  •  A Wonderful World
  • We are all different
  • The Tiger who came for Tea
  • Dear zoo
  • Shark in the park

 

During this topic, our children will be learning what is the world? We will learn about where we live. What type of dwelling do we live in, a house, on a farm, in a caravan etc. Do you like to travel? How do you travel, is it by car, boat or plane etc. Where have you travelled too, is this in the Uk or abroad. Where have you visited in the world, did they speak the same language as you? We will also be learning about animals around the world and where they originate from.

 

Within Nursery, the majority of our learning comes from our continuous provision, this is constantly changing to meet the needs of the children and is enhanced to develop the children's learning.

We aim to continually support all 7 areas of learning within the EYFS, with the 3 specific areas being the main focus of everything for the nursery children.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development:

Here we will focus on building children's awareness of the world around them, the other people in that world and the way they feel about it and themselves.

What are our likes and dislikes? Do you like to be on the beach building sand castles or do you like walking in forests?

Which is your favourite animals? What is it you like about them?

Communication and language:

We will aim to learn some simple language from other countries, such as a simple hello at registration time and a goodbye at the end of the day. Each week we will use a different language. We want to have lots of different discussions about where we have been in the world and the people we met. Our role play area is to be a travel agents this term to encourage lots of new vocabulary from our learning. 

Physical Development:

Children will learn about their bodies and how their bodies can move to a rhythm.  We will try to learn some new dances from various other countries of the world and listen to the music played in these countries.

Each Friday is our P.E day, please make sure the children come in comfy clothes suitable for lots of physical activity.

Mrs Renton and Miss Richardson are looking forward to helping all our nursery children to shine brightly, achieve greatly and cherish the community we live .

Autumn, term 1, 2021 - All About Me

 

Welcome to St-Michaels nursery, during this autumn 1 half term, our focus topic is 'all about me'.

 

This topic children invariably find absorbing! It offers opportunities to explore diverse aspects of life experiences.

We have linked into this topic with some relevant stories that will help us to have some good discussions about ourselves and our families to support our all about me topic, these include:

What makes me a me?

Owl Babies

Monkey Puzzle 

You Choose.

 

During this topic, our children will be learning about themselves and that each and every one of them is different. We will be getting to know everyone, we will learn that we have different looks and personalities. We will also learn about our families, who lives in our house? Who are our extended family? This will introduce the children to various different dynamics within families.

 

Within nursery the majority of our learning comes from our continuous provision, this is constantly changing to meet the needs of the children and enhanced to develop the children's learning.

 

We aim to continually support all 7 areas of learning within the EYFS, with the 3 specific areas being the main focus of everything for the nursery children.

 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development:

Children come to develop confidence in who they are and what they can do and in expressing their own ideas. We know that although many children have several people who care deeply about them. This helps the child feel valued and special and gives them a sense of self-worth. This in turn leads to them being confident with others and knowing when they need support from other people.

 

Commumication and language:

With our topic being all about me, we have had lots of discussions about ourselves and our families. We have been using mirrors to look into and we have been describing our facial expressions, encouraging lots of new vocabulary for the children to learn.

 

Physical Development:

Children will learn about their bodies, body parts, what our body needs to thrive, why food, exercise and rest is important.

 

Each Friday is our P.E day, please make sure the children come in comfy clothes suitable for lots of physical activity.

 

Mrs Renton and Miss Richardson are looking forward to helping all our nursery children shine brightly.
