Nursery

Welcome to Nursery

 

Welcome to our class page.

Our Nursery consists of full time and part time children.

 

 Mrs Smithson is the Nursery teacher and Miss Bowley is the teaching assistant.

 

In Nursery we provide lots of 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.

If you have any concerns, questions or need support, contact Mrs Brown (phase leader for EYFS) at earlyyears@riverview.staffs.sch.uk and she will be happy to help.

Tapestry

 

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. 

Superheroes

Autumn Term

 

Our first topic in Nursery is 'Superheroes', we will be finding out about superheroes and their super powers, this will then link into our imaginative play and creative work.

 Our role-play area has been transformed into a Superhero Headquarters, we'll be pretending to take calls from people who need our help and then we'll work out how to save them.

We will be reading the books 'Supertato', 'Super Daisy' and 'Ten Little Superheroes'.

 

In maths we will be learning to recite some number names in sequence (0-5), we will be beginning to make comparisons between quantities and beginning to learn and use language relating to quantities, such as ‘more’ and ‘a lot’.

 

In literacy we will enjoy sharing lots of stories, rhymes and songs. We will also be focusing on making lots of different marks using a range of materials. We will also be beginning to describe and talk about the marks we draw and paint.

 

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.

 RICHER RAINBOW

 

At Nursery we follow the whole school ethos of the Richer Rainbow.

 

We always use our RICHER values:

Respectful

Independent

Caring

Helpful

Equal

Resilient

 

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.
