We have been busy this week! We had a lovely visit from Rev Helen Duckett who shared the Easter story with us. The children enjoyed sharing their ideas of signs of Spring too.
We have kept a close eye on our ever growing ‘Very Hungry Caterpillars’. They have almost doubled in size!
We invited Nigel Dutton in to share his skills in drumming. The children absolutely loved having the chance to bang and crash on his drum kit. He showed us how to keep a steady beat with drum sticks and use the different drums in his kit. Thank you to Nigel for giving us his time, we had a fabulous day!
Next week, your children will be Spreading the Easter Happiness and going egg crazy! Your children will be weighing and measuring ingredients to make a chocolaty treat!
We will be using our super singing voices to practice songs for our Easter show. We can’t wait for you to hear our Easter song selection!
A curriculum is not just about what is provided for children to learn, it encompasses all their own experiences too. All that children hear, see and experience, intended, planned or otherwise, form part of their curriculum as a whole.
“Every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential. Children develop quickly in the early years and a child’s experiences between birth and age five have a major impact on their future life chances. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right. Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.”(Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage) The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) applies to children from birth to the end of the reception year.
At Lane Head Nursery School we are committed to underpinning our provision with the four themes of the Early Years Foundation Stage:
A Unique Child
Learning and Development
