Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to our Nursery.

This term our story is The Three Little Pigs, which links with our learning about our topic 'People Who Help Us'. We will be exploring different people in our communities that help us and how. We will be learning about Vets, Firefighters, Police Officers, Teachers, Dentists and Construction Workers.

During this term we begin to prepare ourselves for the transition into Reception. This means we encourage the children to be more independent at this stage. You can help by letting children put on their own coats, carry their own bags and by letting them come into nursery independently in the morning. Children should also be walking to nursery, with minimal (if any) use of pushchairs. 

This term we will also begin group work. These inputs will target children's next steps so every child will attend different groups according to what they are learning at this point in time. 

We are really looking forward to another exciting half term!

REMINDER: Please send in a water bottle and a bag with a spare change of clothes each day - make sure everything has a NAME on it please!

 

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 (EYFS) framework (see below).  This guidance carefully takes into account children's natural steps in their growth (or ‘milestones’ as they’re sometimes known),  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 when scaffolded effectively by the adults around them.
