Using our maths knowledge in the natural world

The children in foundation for learning have been developing their maths knowledge, exploring length, measure, weight and estimation within our adult guided learning. This new knowledge was then applied to our welly Wednesday sessions. The children found a variety of natural objects in the forest to measure, weigh and compare. We used measuring rules to find out the length of the objects, identifying the numerals on the rule to determine which item was the longest and which item was the shortest. Using our estimation skills, we made suggestions as to which object we thought would weigh the heaviest and which item would be the lightest. We used weighing scales to check if our estimations were correct. Lastly, we used the seesaw to explore cause and effect, looking at how we could make the seesaw tip up and down.

Foundation for Learning is our Nursery class for 3 and 4 year olds. During their time in Nursery your little one will be provided with a broad range of experiences that are planned around your child's interests and needs. They will be helped by our knowledgeable staff team to become ready for school, they are encouraged to write their name, share their experiences with each other and become independent in their self care skills.

Sessions and attendance...

Although Nursery Education is non statutory, there is a proven link between attendance, punctuality and children’s attainment and it is important that children have good attendance so that they are able to take full advantage of the education offered. Therefore we ask that children attend every session that they are entitled to and arrive at Nursery on time.

If your child will not be attending Nursery or will be late please call to let us know.

All sessions are Monday to Friday

  • Breakfast club: 8am-8:45am
  • Funded 30 hours: 8:45am-2:45pm/ 9:30am/3:330pm
  • Funded 15 hours: 8:45am-11:45am/ 12:30pm-3:30pm
