In Cygnets we work hard to support our children to become independent, confident and enthusiastic learners. Miss New is the nursery teacher and is supported by Miss Douglas, Miss Bennett and Mrs Bilham. Throughout the year we will focus on a variety of different topics linked to the children’s interests. We plan a range of different activities to help the children reach the next steps on their learning journeys. The children have access to a range of different learning experiences, both inside and outside.
We have two classes within our Reception unit. Newts are led by Mrs Kerr and Tadpoles are led by Mrs Brennan. Mrs Sharpe, Miss Whitlock and Mrs Hill support throughout the unit. The two classes work very closely together, to ensure that the children are all given fantastic learning opportunities. There are times for working exclusively within a single area, such as the classroom and times when the learning is taken into shared areas or outside.
The work that is completed tends to be based around a well known children's book, with all areas of learning being linked to this.
