Welcome to Nursery!
Your learning journey at EFPS starts here, year Nursery where the children have fun learning through play! The term begins with transitional links from home working together in partnership with parents/carers. We will be observing how your child learns and develops with their journey throughout each term. Your child will be learning in a safe and stimulating environment indoors and out.
Before children start in the nursery parents and carers are sent a 'All about me booklet' to complete and return this includes details about the child's family and important celebrations and events in family life. Information about your child's physical development,meals, speech and language, favourite animals, books, foods and family members. All of this information is used by the nursery practitioners as the basis for planning to support your child's development and learning.Stay and share sessions are offered with the sharing of your child's learning diary.
Nursery staff work effectively through leading sessions directly and through high-quality interactions with children during planned and child initiated play activities. Adult led sessions develop children's communication skills modelling language,showing,explaining,demonstrating,questioning,encouraging,facilitating and stimulating children throughout the day.

We will be reading the books 'Dear Zoo,' ' That's not my puppy' and 'Rover' and this will be the focus for much of our learning.
In maths we are learning to count to 5 and 10, recognise and form numbers and count a set of objects.
Our role play is set up as a vets surgery, and we will be learning about different types of animals, how to look after them and what they might need. We will also be learning how animals grow and develop i.e. from a puppy to a dog.
All of our remote learning is posted on Class Dojo.
