Nursery 2019 - 20
Welcome to Nursery!
We are really excited to meet our new children as we know the year ahead holds lots of fun, laughter and learning! Below is some important information about life in Nursery.
If you have any questions or would like to make an appointment to see a member of staff, please ask at the Nursery door. We have an open-door policy to promote effective partnerships with parents.
EYFS Lead/Teacher: Mrs L McPhillips
Teaching Assistant: Mrs L Crighton
Teaching Assistant: Mrs N Vella
For this half term, PE will take place on Monday afternoons. PE will be taught both indoor and outdoor weather permitting. It is important that your child has their PE kit in school. This kit should be brought in at the start of every half term and will be sent home at the end of that half term to be washed.
At Kirkby C of E, we value the importance of reading widely and as frequently as possible. For this reason, we ask that children read five times per week; this can be from a school reading book, a home book or even a library book from Mrs Crightons ‘Bedtime Story Collection’!
We are very fortunate to have a wonderfully atmospheric and well stocked school library here at Kirkby C of E. Every Tuesday morning/Thursday afternoon the children in nursery will visit the library to select a reading book that they can read and enjoy.
The EYFS states that children need to have a daily outdoor experience. This means that in a childcare setting or school reception class your child will be outside at some stage every day. This could be in the specific outdoor play area or perhaps by taking part in nature walks on site.
