We are keen to provide suggestions that will help support yourselves at home and this will be done via this web page, Dojo, the schools twitter and also through Primary Essence.
On the web page expect suggestions and useful links.
Dojo provides a link between learning in nursery and home. It is also useful where you may have messages you wish to share with the nursery staff.
Then on twitter you can share things of great value to the school community,
Finally on Primary Essence you can share achievements from home which school will put on your childs home learning journal. We have had some fabulous entries on Primary Essence where children are baking, making playdough and other suggestions from the home learning activities. Staff are viewing these and saving them in your childs home journal.
Every week examples of home learning are posted on Primary Essence that are enjoyed by nursery staff and recorded in your childs home learning journal. (If you are struggling with your Primary Essence log in please let us know through the home learning contact below and we can help.)
Every week we hope to post one of the pieces on our nursery page.
Below are extracts from
'What to expect, when?' Written by actionforchildren.org,uk who worked with the DFE to provide an excellent guide for Foundation Stage Parents.
Please read through and see for yourself.
If I wasnt helping them what could my child do?
When I listen carefully what can may child say? If another relative listened to them speak could they understand them. Do they understand what im saying?
Then look to the suggestions provided that will help my child learn. Remember we learn by revisiting experiences frequently and generally not by something shared once or twice. Also revisit the next day, the next week, the next month and the next year.
This is for children who recently had their 3rd birthday and will be staying in nursery for another academic year. Otherwise known as
N1s. While we recognise every child is unique and will be working below the threshold 16-26 months or above the threshold 30-50 months its an opportunity to see how in line they are with 22-36 age expectation for a N1 child. If your child can be secure or beyond 22-36 before August 31st it helps them thrive.
The Early Years Foundation Stage is the framework followed by the nursery setting. The cycle of observation, then timed intervention, then evaluation from a further observation supports learning in nursery.
We cross reference our observations with the stages of development within the seven areas outlined in the guidance and also listed on Early to Primary Essence. We look for a 'best fit' and determine whether a child is emerging, developing or secure.
Children all have different starting points with children starting at 22-36 months or 30-50 months. We also support children who are younger or have special education needs who may match younger stages of development.
The missing areas are mapped during the evaluation of the assessments. Staff then use this information in their teaching.
