How will my child learn?

Is there a balance between direct teaching and learning through play?

We ensure that there is a balance between adult-led and child-initiated activities across the day. We believe that even during child-initiated activities, adults’ interaction with the children is essential as this helps to support the children’s understanding and so guides new learning. The role of the adult is to continually model, demonstrate and question what the children are doing, either through participation in the children’s games or encouraging the children to participate or complete a task with the adult.

What direct teaching will my child receive in Nursery?

Children have phonics or maths lessons every day.We teach maths through practical activities on the carpet and in small groups. Children begin to learn phonics through guided activities which aim to develop listening and attention skills and the ability to play with rhymes and alliterations. We teach Read Write Inc, a systematic phonics programme, in Summer.

What kind of activities will be on offer for my child at Nursery?
Children are offered a variety of different activities throughout the day, both indoor and outdoor. These may include imaginative play, activities to help with numeracy and literacy, construction and problem-solving, story time, dance and movement and rest and relaxation.  There is plenty of opportunity for free play to allow children to be inventive and use their imaginations. We also provide Forest School sessions.

What is the academy’s behaviour management policy?
