Communication and Language
Communication and Language is one of the three prime areas of learning within the EYFS the other two being Personal, Social and Emotional and Physical development.
In Nursery we provide the children with lots of opportunities to talk with their peers and adults within the setting to develop their speaking, listening and understanding skills.The children particularly enjoy the seasonal interest table where they have lots of exciting things to explore using all of their senses developing their understanding and vocabulary.
Personal, Social and Emotional development:
Personal, Social and Emotional development encompasses self-confidence, managing feelings and behaviour and making relationships. Our main focus for the beginning of the academic year was to ensure that all of the children were happy and settled within the Nursery environment and excited to come and play and learn.
All families are offered a home visit and a settling in session for their child before they start at Nursery. This has helped the children to feel confident within the setting enabling the settling in process to be far quicker and smoother.
The children have already begun to form good relationships with both peers and adults and will often seek out others to share experiences.
Physical developmentPhysical development includes both fine and gross motor skills from riding the trikes to threading, digging in the sand to exploring clay. All activities are introduced to encourage muscle development in the children’s arms, wrists and fingers in preparation for writing.
In addition the Nursery children have a weekly PE session either outside or in the school hall where they practice new skills such as throwing, catching, running, jumping and team games.
During the Autumn Term Nursery went on an autumn walk along the bridle way near to the school. We enjoyed looking for autumnal treasures such as leaves, sticks and acorns; we even found some dinosaur footprints! On our way back to Nursery we visited the local park.
Celebrations and Festivals:
This term the children have enjoyed finding out about different celebrations and festivals such as Diwali, Children in Need, Remembrance Day, Bonfire Night, Hanukkah and Christmas. We have also enjoyed celebrating each other’s birthdays and special achievements.
