On May 2023 Nursery were delighted to gain communication friendly status. The Nursery staff have all been trained to level 3 in this via ELKLAN. The staff have gained further knowledge on how to promote vocabulary development, speaking and reading within the Early Years Setting.
The Knowledge Organisers that have been shared with your children have been created to support with memory skills, in order to retain key facts. These will be shared on both the school website and Class Dojo at the start of the term and referred to regularly throughout the term.
How do they help parents?
These can provide further opportunities for challenge activities for parents to engage with at home. Why not challenge your child further? Investigate and research the topic independently, play games to remind your child what all the vocabulary words mean and how to spell them.
If you would like any further support with using knowledge organisers at home then please contact your child's class teacher.
Nursery value the importance of promoting dental hygiene. Dental hygiene is covered in PSHE sessions in the Autumn term. A dentist also visits nursery twice a year in order to highlight this further. During the visits each child receives a toothbrush, toothpaste and a tooth brushing chart.
