Meet The Team
The Nursery is lucky to have two qualifies teachers: Mrs. Arif and Ms. Steed. We also have and Mrs. Wicks and Ms. Hall who are assist the Nursery full time. Your children will see both Mrs. Arif and Ms. Steed across the school week. Mrs. Arif works Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Ms. Steed works Wednesdays and Thursdays.
The children follow a structured timetable (see below) and are given the opportunity to access enrichening activities that follow the new EYFS curriculum. The learning environment is planned according to half termly topics which seek to develop children's core skills of:
- communication and language.
- physical development
- personal, social and emotional development.
In addition to this, the children access maths, literacy, art and science through structured carpet input and ongoing provisions in their learning environment.
Below, you will find information on our termly topics and WOW days. We choose a story every two weeks (except from All About Authors topic where we look at a different biography each week) that links to the topic, activities and teaching is planned around the topic-related stories.
