Welcome to Nursery

Welcome to the Hucklow Nursery

Located offsite at:

441 Firth Park Road
Firth Park
SHEFFIELD

So far our Nursery children have made an excellent start settling in at Hucklow, every child has had a change be that a new classroom, new session times, new key worker or being totally new to the setting. Changes can be challenging and scary, however they have all been amazing and we are very proud if the start they have made. 

Our topic this first Autumn half-term will be ‘Magical me’ finding out about ourselves and all the things that make us special. After the half-term holidays we will be exploring and experiencing the different types of weather on a daily basis. We will be spending a lot of time learning all about Nursery and the routines of the sessions. We will be meeting new friends and learning to play together. We will be practicing taking turns and sharing and learning where all our toys belong in our classrooms so we can be super at tidying up. We will be learning to put our own coats on and even trying to fasten them. We will be working on our big and small scale movements (climbing, jumping, balancing, threading, cutting, using small tools) because this will help our brains develop and help us learn as well as we can when we start big school.

 

The curriculum in Foundation Stage has seven areas:-

 

Three prime areas:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development

 

Four Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

 

Our Nursery children do most of their learning through play, supported by our wonderful Nursery staff team and the areas of learning are rarely taught in isolation. There is plenty of time for children to explore their own interests as well as try new things. We encourage them to talk about their thoughts and ideas and begin to ask and try to answer questions. Once they are ready, children will have small group adult lead sessions with a learning focus related to the topic.

Our weekly story sessions will be starting once our children have settled into their new classes, so please keep your eyes peeled for the letter home (after half-term) and come and join your child’s class to explore some exciting and wonderful books.  Please see your child’s key worker if you would like more information about this.
