Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome to Warfield Nursery and our website.

The whole team including Mrs Draper, Miss Knight, Mrs Mokhliss and Mrs Nibloe, are so excited to get to know all our new children and families. The children joining us this term will be making lots of new friends and learning our routines this term. 

In nursery we provide a stimulating, child-centred curriculum, which ignites children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive. Our curriculum encompasses the seven areas of learning of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. The three prime areas are Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development and these are strengthened and applied through play and active learning, in four further specific areas; Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

The children are encouraged by the structure of the nursery environment and by staff to build secure relationships with adults and their peers so they can be confident, independent, capable, resilient and reflective learners. Children learn in different ways and develop at different rates and with different interests. Nursery staff support children’s learning through a balance of planned focus activities and child-led play, extending their spontaneous play opportunities in a stimulating learning environment.

The Nursery outdoor learning space is a large, natural area incorporating a gardening area and a mud-kitchen, as well as dedicated areas for music, construction, sand play and water investigation. Children can access the outside area throughout the day and much of our learning takes place outside.

Our Topic this Summer  half term is Growing. Please read the Topic Map and Home Learning documents below for further information and how to support your child with their learning. The new children will also be learning how to play with new friends, share equipment and use resources together and learning lots of new and exciting things. We enjoy sharing many stories in Nursery and this half-term our focus stories will include different books about growing plants and we will be reading the stories of The Tiny Seed, Jack and the Beanstalk, Handa's Surprise and other stories about vegetables and fruit. Children will be learning the following nursery rhymes, to support pre-reading skills; Five Little Peas in a Pea Pod Press, 12 Buckle my Shoe, Five Little Apples.  We shall also talk about Spring and new life as the seasons change and things start to grow in the garden and baby animals are born.

What does your child need to bring to nursery?

Children need to wear a warm, waterproof coat and waterproof shoes and a sun hat as outdoor learning is an important part of our curriculum. Please bring a bag of labelled spare clothes for your child, including socks, which they can leave on their own peg for the week. Please write your child’s name on the labels on all children’s clothing especially coats and jumpers. Please provide a full change of clothes in your child's bag.

All children should have a named water-bottle and a named lunch box, if attending lunch-time. We politely ask that no nuts or eggs are included in their lunch boxes due to allergies. A lunchbox can include a sandwich (or pasta or rice with vegetables/meat in a plastic box), yoghurt, a piece of fruit or chopped fruit in a plastic box, a biscuit and a drink of water or a small fruit juice. Please remember to chop grapes, cherries, tomatoes or strawberries in small pieces and include a spoon or fork if needed. We encourage children to drink only water in their water bottle at school to support children’s dental health. We also encourage healthy sandwiches and advise parents to avoid chocolate spread as will also support dental health.  All children will be given fruit and milk, allergies permitting during their session too.

As we are a school Nursery we start the children learning phonics, Phase 1 and then progressing to Phase 2. We also introduce Early Number, shape and counting to the children. Please see our Topic Map for further information and do ask if you have any questions about our curriculum and how you can support at home.

All children have a Learning Journey folder which will hold a record of their learning. If you would like to complete a Proud Cloud for your child’s Learning Journey, please do hand them to one of the staff. We love to hear what your child gets up to at home and of course their wonderful achievements.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask one of the team or email the nursery and we will answer them for you.
