Nursery is taught by My Harrington

EYFS comprises of two year groups - Nursery and Reception.

EYFS stands for Early Years Foundation Stage and it is this curriculum that we follow.

The Early Years Foundation Stage starts from birth and continues to 5 years old.

The EYFS is divided into three prime areas (PSED - Personal, Social and Emotional, PD - Physical Development, C&L - Communication and Language) and four specific areas (L - Literacy, M - Maths, UW - Understanding the World, EAD - Expressive Arts and Design).

Nursery are the youngest children in the school and it is in these vital years that the children start their school career.

We support children to make the transition from home to school and then into Reception.

Tapestry is an online tool that Nursery use to communicate with parents, and which parents can communicate with us. Both staff and parents can post pictures, and comments on the children’s individual journals, documenting learning at school and at home.

The children in Nursery learn through topics and have a new Book of the Week each week linked to the topic. We love books, and are lucky to have links with Bungay Library who provide us with a topic box of books each half term. We have a well used reading area and end each morning and afternoon with a story chosen by staff or children, as well as favourite stories brought in from home to share with friends.

Each day the children have time to explore and learn both inside and out, as well as being gradually introduced to more formal lessons on the carpet and in groups.
