We also have Miss Flook who is an apprentice teaching assistant working in Nursery, she joined us in September 2021.
opportunities for the children to build their confidence and self-awareness, and also to manage their feelings and behaviour. Communication is a key area of your child's learning in nursery. They will spend lots of time sharing rhymes, songs, stories and playing games to develop their speaking and listening skills.

In Nursery we have made our own rules that we need to follow. We have all signed to say that we will try hard to follow these rules, we have signed using our finger print.
At Nursery we follow the whole school ethos of the Richer Rainbow.
We always use our RICHER values:
Children who demonstrate good RICHER values are rewarded with dojos, special RICHER value stickers, and can even be chosen to be a RICHER value champion!
The children have been learning about the characters who are based on the RICHER values.
This year EYFS are using tapestry. It is wonderful to see parents starting to get involved and adding observations and pictures already.
We regularly add memos onto the tapestry site (these can be accessed through the web browser not the app), it is important you check these memos to find out important information.
At Riverview we follow Good to be Green. Each week we try to stay on Green by following the school rules, our class charter and the RICHER values. If we are unable to do this we are given time to 'Stop n Think'. If we do not change our behaviour we are given a Yellow card. We are given time to think and make the changes we need to and the Yellow card is taken away. However, if we are unable to change our behaviour again, we are given a Red card. We are then given time to think about our behaviour with an adult in the classroom.
We have our RICHER Rainbow Time on a Friday in Nursery.
Here at River View we follow the phonics scheme 'Read Write Inc', this begins for Nursery children in the Summer term. In the Autumn and Spring term we focus on delivering a range of Phase 1 Letters and Sounds listening games and activities to help develop the children’s listening skills.
