Welcome to Sea View Nursery.
This is the gate we arrive at.
In Foundation stage we plan and support the seven areas of learning outlined in the EYFS Framework. The three prime areas cover Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. The four specific areas cover Literacy and Mathematical Development, Understanding of The World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Children are supported and encouraged to become independent learners; selecting resources, developing ideas and collaborating with peers to challenge their thinking.
Children participate in small group activities daily to introduce new concepts and develop skills in phonics (early reading and writing), mathematics, thinking skills, problem solving skills and collaboration.
In nursery we can play in lots of different areas.
We like to explore and play outside
We like to make marks
We have great fun playing in the sand and water.
We create different role play areas to link to stories and interests.

Springtime in nursery!
We made observational drawings of the flowers in nursery
We planted broad bean seeds and took them home to see how tall they will grow. We learned that plants need soil, water and sunlight to grow.
We recalled the process of planting a seed and sequenced the pictures.
Haris used construction pieces to make his own Spring flowers and compared them to the real thing

We learned the Easter story.
We also learned that the chocolate Easter eggs that we receive symbolise 'new life'. We made chocolate Easter nests to hold our Easter treats.
Happy Easter! 🐣
Inspired by the Eco packs, we continued the owl theme within our learning. Here is a display of some of our lovely work 🦉
Using the eco craft packs, we made bird feeders by threading popcorn, raisins and cheerios onto yarn, ready to hang out for the birds.
We enjoyed listening to the 'Owl Babies' story and used white paint and textured material to print our own owl babies.
We did a target drawing of an owl
