Welcome to Nursery! Mrs Smedley is the class teacher supported by Miss Stafford.

In Nursery we have a happy, stimulating environment where children feel valued, safe and motivated to learn. Each individual child is at the centre of everything we do.

We are an accredited Communication Friendly School, providing tailored interventions to enable our children to develop their communication skills across all areas of our provision. Alongside this, upon entry children are language assessed using the WellComm framework and planned for accordingly, enabling them to fast-track their communication skills in small structured groups.

Children are supported and challenged in their learning.  Our experienced practitioners engage in individual play, enhance the learning ensuring that the children make good progress.

Our specialist music teacher from Oldham Council Music Service delivers Tune-In To Talking sessions which develops and enhances many transferable skills including concentration, listening and attention, turn-taking and overall confidence to engage in new situations.

Our bespoke curriculum is linked to specific interests, enabling our children to thrive, reach their full potential and gain a true love of learning.

This term we will be learning about ‘Real Life Superheros. We will learn about the special people who help us in our community such as Doctors, Nurses, Firefighters, vets, refuge collectors, postal workers and the Police. We will learn about how these people can help us and how important they are.

In Nursery reading is at the very centre of all we do. We love reading lots of different books each day and using puppets, teddies and other resources to act them out. We encourage the children to read daily with an adult at home, enjoying a special story time together. You ca vivist the local library for free books and enjoy the different activities on offer there.

My Happy Mind:

This term our topics will be ‘Relate; and ‘Engage’. In our ‘Relate’ module we will be working on our listening skills. In the ‘Engage’ module we will be setting goals and thinking about how we can achieve them.  We will be continuing to work on our Happy Breathing throughout each module.

We love to know what the children have been doing at home. If you have any photographs of your child enjoying a particular family event, special day out or toy/ book at home, please send them in for us to celebrate with their friends.
