Fledglings and Chicks
We explore and learn through play
A very warm welcome to Stowford Nursery.
The Nursery team consists of: Mrs Yasmin Rogers (Nursery Manager), Mrs Hayley Stewart, Mrs Michelle Wark and Mrs Sue Fry.
During the spring term, the children will continue to learn and develop their routines and boundaries within the nursery, and we will be supporting our new children with this too. We will also be focusing on the continued development of self-care and independence.
We will be exploring and finding out about how things grow, and we will be planting various seeds and bulbs, encouraging the children to help with this process in the hope of developing our nursery garden.
Children will be involved in weekly food preparation/cooking activities and, when possible, we will use the newly furnished kitchen in the Qube, which we are all excited about!
We will continue to have weekly Wild Tribe sessions that support the children to develop their understanding of the environment they live in, and we will be focusing on how things change during the different seasons throughout the year.
During our PE sessions, we will be focusing on listening to and following instructions, how to use the apparatus safely and different ways our bodies can move to get from one place to another.
We will be starting our journey of phonics learning by introducing the ‘Foundations Little Wandle: Letters and Sounds Revised phonics programme’. This will help develop children’s phonological awareness, their love of stories and rhymes, increase their vocabulary and confidence to talk and improve their listening and ability to take part in back-and-forth conversations. More information is available here: https://www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/resources/for-parents/
During this term we will also be introducing children to various spring festivals and religious celebrations to enhance their social and emotional development and adopt a sense of community and belonging.
We are always available at the door before and after nursery sessions and can be messaged via Class dojo messenger if there is anything you need help with.
If you have any concerns or worries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
