We are the very youngest children in school at only two years old! We are in a ‘pod’ with Caterpillar and Butterfly class. We are taught by Mrs Wheatley and she is supported by our higher level teaching assistant, Mrs McCabe, and our teaching assistant, Miss Cox. We have a range of provision on offer for our two-year-olds including the government’s free Play and Learn sessions and this is a fantastic way to support your child’s transition into nursery. Additional sessions can be purchased and we also offer a Lunch Club to children wishing to stay for longer sessions or even full days. Children can join us from the term after their second birthday; applications for places can be made via our school office.
What’s involved in Play and Learn sessions?
Our sessions aim to support children’s social skills and help to prepare them for later life education. We provide opportunities and resources for children to develop their speech, behaviour and creativity. Our 2 year olds can experiment with different mark making tools to prepare them for writing. Provide a range of stories and rhymes which supports learning to read. Explore a variety of sensory materials and textures. As well as accessing the outdoor space which includes a water play area and a large sand pit. Parents will also be able to join in with the fun on our Stay and Play sessions that we hold termly.
We are sure there are lots of achievements which happen at home that your teachers would love to know about too! These do not have to be academic, it can be about confidence, becoming more independent or being kind to family or friends! Send these into school with your child, and we will put them into their books and learning journeys. You can download them from here Praise notes from home pdf or pick up one from school (they are always available in the main entrance or when you collect your child at the end of the day!)
