Nursery – Caterpillars

Welcome to Caterpillar class! 
I am Miss Clarke, the teacher in Nursery. I am lucky to work with our Nursery Nurse Mrs Jackson and our Teaching assistant Miss Burdett who both work full time in Caterpillar class.

In Nursery we encourage children to be independent and uncover a real love of learning and school through play based learning and short adult-led sessions. We have high expectations for our youngest children and try our best every day to ensure they have the best start to their education.

We plan for Nursery following the children’s needs, we observe and assess where the children are in their development and plan our provision and lessons around their next steps. We use exciting themes and books of the week to inspire the children to be excited about and involved in their own learning.

Our daily routine starts with name writing practice on the carpet, followed by a short phonics and maths session. We then learn through our play in the provision until the end of the day when we focus on our topic before home time.
