Welcome to Seedlings where you will find enthusiastic young explorers who enjoy learning through play inside and outside in our calm and purposeful environment. We are learning to be independent and developing a "have a go" attitude at the beginning of our school journey.
We are supported daily by our Nursery Teacher Mrs Vaughan and our Early Years Practitioner Mrs Butler who is assisted by Mrs Jolley on a Friday.
We also go to Forest School on Tuesday mornings
Term 2 -Lights, Lanterns and Celebrations
This term starts with a bang as we find out about Bonfire Night and fireworks, using them as a starting point for lots of colourful creative play.
We will be creating a "dark space' to explore; experimenting with different sources of light, as we think about Night and Day, discover nocturnal animals and all the things that happen whilst we are fast asleep!
Over the course of the term we will be finding out all about the different ways people celebrate special times as we discuss some traditions of Diwali, Hanukkah, birthdays and of course Christmas, finishing with a little performance of festive singing and dancing.
Term 1 - This is Me!
A Morning in Nursery
We come in at 8:45am wash our hands, and self-register using our name cards. We choose inside until carpet time at 9:05am when we have a 'Good Morning' song with lots of movement to wake us up - then we have an adult led carpet time.
At 9:25am we choose from activities inside and outside (whatever the weather!), playing and exploring and sometimes we will work with an adult in a small group.
We sit down for a healthy snack in a group with an adult at about 10:10 and at 11:10am.
we all tidy up before sitting down for a story, some rhymes and songs or some maths input before singing our 'Goodbye Song' at 11:45am.
We all go to Forest School on Tuesday mornings.
