Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to our Nursery.

Autumn Term is well under way and there is plenty more still to come, which is very exciting for us and the children!  The Medium Terms Plans for Autumn 1 and 2 have now been uploaded below for you to see.  These have and are being adapted week by week and sometimes day by day to meet the needs of the year group as we slowly come out of the current pandemic.  We want to say a big thank you for your understanding and patience during this time of adjustment for both children and staff.

We hope to reintroduce/ start for some children, forming Key Person Groups as soon as is possible.  As well as these care groups, we are gradually adding back in typical autumn term routines to the daily timetable, such as self-registration, ‘Write Dance’, Hello song and a more focussed short Story Time and Key Text.

Together we can be the biggest supporters of your child’s learning.

The Early Years Matter!

At Sparrow Farm Nursery we believe in facilitating and supporting the development of the whole-child, and follow the Government’s statutory Early Years Foundation Stage framework (see below).  This guidance carefully takes into account childrens’ natural steps, or ‘milestones’ as they’re sometimes known, in their growth and how we as professionals can observe, assess and plan to meet each individual’s needs.  These early years are crucial to laying the foundation in your child’s education and their future achievements and wellbeing.  Children are like sponges and soak up every experience provided to them. 

The EYFS is split between Prime Areas and Specific Areas of learning. Each is sequential to the next and by the end of Reception between 40-60 months in age your child reaches 17 Early Learning Goals.  The school’s values – Ambitious, Bold, Curious – are embedded in our teaching. Through the Early Years Framework we strive to inspire and nurture in your child these strongly held values. The children’s experiences are enriched because of this. The children confidently grow to meet and succeed in rapidly changing times, and ensure the preservation of our planet and good health.

Learning through Play

The EYFS framework endorses play-based learning because this is the child’s natural development within the world around them.  Play is a child’s context for learning, for example in role-playing a Cafe.  Play provides rich learning opportunities and leads to children’s success and self-esteem.  Learning goes hand in hand with playing. Play is healthy.
