Welcome to our Nursery class page!
We are looking forward to another fantastic half term with you all!
Let's go 'out and about' - looking at all the places near to our school and how we recognise them.
Thinking about signs, pictures, maps, places of interest.
I wander if Jigsaw Jenie will know which way to go to get to the park?
Can you explain where your house is on your road and what number you live at?
Do you know what it is like to go to Nursery in other countries? We will find out together!
We can't wait to create an airport in Nursery and find out what it is like to fly an aeroplane.
So let's get busy learning together.
It's good to talk, it's good to dance, sing, draw, paint......it is important that children learn to express themselves and feel happy to do so.
The link is below if you would like to listen to 'The Feelings' song with your child at home.
We listened to the song, we shared our experiences about different feelings.
We drew faces to show different feelings and emotions.
Remember.....It's good to keep talking -
Set aside that 5 minutes a day to share a rhyme or a story book or just
simply have a chat... because it's important to talk and life has changed
a lot recently for everyone.
Put technology to one side for a while and encourage a 2 way conversation
with your child about anything they are interested in or
might want to talk about. Young children need to constantly hear conversations and engage in them to be able to learn how to speak to others confidently
and extend their vocabulary.

Early Adopter School
We have started this school year with an exciting change for our 'Early Years Foundation Stage'. The government released two new documents of 'Curriculum Guidance' for the 'Early Years Foundation Stage' and 'Development matters' in September 2021.
Our school has opted in to be an ‘Early adopter’ of this new guidance and will be piloting the 'New Early Learning Goals'. Those schools who are not early adopters will follow this guidance from September 2021.
Please visit https://www.oak-cottage.solihull.sch.uk/curriculum/ to see the guidance.
