Welcome to Nursery! At Horndale we aim to provide a welcoming and caring environment for your child’s first step into school life. We provide an atmosphere where every child is valued and supported, to enable them to become happy, confident learners and to help them reach their full potential.
Nursery is split into two session, a morning and an afternoon session with Mrs Copeland our Nursery Teacher and Mrs Anderson, our Classroom Assistant.
In Nursery we have lots of fun creating play based learning around our own experiences. We access both the indoor and outdoor environments which both offer educational and exciting opportunities to develop and extend our learning.
Our topic this half term is ‘All About Me’ and we are enjoying getting to know each other and making friends.
We enjoy exploring phase 1 phonic activities where we use our ‘listening ears’ to listen carefully to the sounds around us as well as learning how we can make different sounds with musical instruments or our bodies and voices.
We love learning new songs and rhymes and use these to help develop our speaking and listening skills in Nursery.
We aim to provide high quality teaching and learning experiences which will enable every child to develop at their own pace, physically, individually, socially and emotionally.
