Welcome to Nursery!
"Play is the highest form of research". Albert Einstein
My name is Miss Moors and I am your Nursery teacher.
This is my first year at English Martyrs and I am looking forward to the year very much!
In my spare time I love to go for walks with my dog, read books and bake cakes.
I'm so looking forward to getting to know the children and parents in Nursery this year and we are going to have so much fun together!
In Nursery, children are supported and encouraged to follow their natural desire to explore, investigate and learn through play both inside the classroom and in our outdoor provision area.
Staff are led by the children's curiosity and imagination's as well as having set topics planned throughout the year to act as a stimulus for the children. Alongside our planned activities we look for opportunities to enhance the children's learning. We do this by planning 'in the moment'. We allow the children to take a lead on their own learning following their interests and own curiosity. Our response is uniquely suited to the unique child in that unique moment. The children will also learn through guided activities and adult led focus groups.
There is no such thing as a ‘Typical Day’ in Early Years as every day is new and exciting. However, during the day your children will follow a similar daily routine and receive separate input for specific areas of learning such as Mathematics, Literacy and Religious Education.
Parental input is very important at this age and we actively encourage parents to share information about their child's development and achievements through the Seesaw app. This is also where we will share photographs and comments on the things children have been learning each week.
Here's to a fantastic year in Nursery!
