The New Early Years Reforms

The Department for Education has published a new guide for parents, produced by Sheringham Nursery School and Children’s Centre – ‘What to Expect in the Early Years Foundation Stage’ (formally called ‘What to Expect When’) which guides parents and carers through what to expect in their child’s development. It aligns with guidance given to schools to help practitioners and parents. Please click on the link below to view the document.

Mark making and Literacy

Mark making and Literacy

Literacy elements can be found across of areas of our curriculum and in many of the activities and areas in our Nursery environment, both indoors and out. At the beginning of the academic year, a focus is placed on early marking, listening skills and developing communication skills. As the year moves on we begin exploring phonics through games and activities that include elements of ‘Read, Write, Inc’ (the phonics programme used in the main school).

Caterpillars and Tadpoles

The Nursery children have enjoyed exploring life cycles of some familiar creatures. We have been lucky enough to see these first hand in our Nursery.

We explored this topic through a variety of cross-curricular links.

Being Creative

Painting 6 Designing dresses 5  Collage 2  Junk modelling 1

In Nursery we love to explore the mark making table, the craft area and use the painting easels.

Children are encouraged to plan out ideas, select resources and adapt their work to achieve their desired outcomes, all independently. We love to see how children take the skills we teach and come up with their own creative ideas.

Easter 4It was great to see all the Nursery children on parade around the school in their home-made Easter bonnets! Well done to all of them - they certainly brightened up the school as they visited each classroom! The older children all loved seeing them.

The children in Nursery celebrated the Jubilee with their very own street party. Over two weeks the children learnt all about London and compared it to Cheshunt. We learnt about why we were celebrating this historic day and made many decorations to help us celebrate and remind us of the day.

We even had a visit from the Queen!

Nursery Picnic - July 2022

Picnic 2 Picnic Mind the birds Bears picnic 1

The children in Nursery had a great day in the sunshine at our end of year Teddy Bears Picnic.

We were joined by the brilliant story teller, Vickie Holden-Swinton. We heard all about Bob - a bear who was supposed to be enjoying a picnic that did not go according to plan. We followed this with our own delicious picnic with our teddy bears.
