Welcome to Nursery Class!
Our dedicated Nursery Team are very excited to be a part of your child’s Early Years Journey:
Mrs Sharma (Nursery Teacher)
Miss Reid (Early Years Practitioner)
Mrs Hyland (Early Years Practitioner)
Mrs Haines (HLTA)
We are looking forward to taking care of your children and have lots of exciting and stimulating projects planned to develop and enhance the children’s understanding and knowledge!
We will be reading a wide range of texts such as Dear Zoo, Here Are my Hands and The Very Hungry Caterpillar to name but a few!
The children will have many captivating opportunities such as experiencing
‘Living Eggs’. The children are extremely fortunate to see the lifecycle of a chicken - from the start of it’s life in an egg to hatching into a chick. This programme is very beneficial for the children’s well-being, self-esteem and knowledge of taking care of animals.
This year we have a big focus on phonics and early reading skills. The children will have ample experiences to develop and enhance their Maths and Phonics skills through lots of fun activities, both indoors and outdoors.
At Western House Academy we strongly believe in establishing a secure and friendly home - school partnership and we believe this begins in Nursery. To capture and enhance the children’s understanding, we use a programme called Tapestry. Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child's experiences during their time with us at Western House Nursery. By using Tapestry you can be involved in your child’s learning at school and you also celebrate their home learning with us. We are looking forward to a very busy, but very exciting year ahead!
