Welcome to our Nursery page! We are really excited for you all to join us on our learning journey. Keep a look out for regular updates on here, as well as photos below.
What is our book as a hook!
Our new book as a hook for this half term is ‘Sharing a shell’ written by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks. We will be exploring all things related to under the sea, the children have loved this book so far and have been discussing different species of crabs and finding out what a sea anemone is! So exciting! Over the next half term we will be learning this story and also creating story maps to help us learn and remember the order of the story. This would be a great opportunity to ask your child about the story and discuss what happens at the beginning, the middle and the end of the story.
We will be sending emails containing reports with pictures of your child’s learning to registered emails. In order to receive these you have to click confirm on the initial email sent. These are a great way of you being able to share and look at your child’s learning journey. Did you know you can also send observations of your own in to us, just email email@example.com and attach a photo or video and a short description of your child’s home learning, don’t forget to add the name of your child in the subject box so we know who it is. We would love to see these experiences. 😊
Lets get talking!
Parents often ask us what they can do to help their child at home. One of the most valuable things you can do is to talk to your child about the learning that they have done during their time at school.
You could ask questions using our Seymour Park ‘language for learning’, such as…
*What did you learn today?
*What learning areas did you use today?
*Who helped you with your learning?
*What did you do to try your butterfly best?
*What made you wobble in your learning today?
*Were you challenged today?

2Build a Profile
2Build a profile is a fantastic observation and assessment tool that enables practitioners to log children's achievements against the EYFS profile. Every child has an individual portfolio which is shared with parents/carers occasionally throughout the year. This is an essential feature that allows you to keep up to date with your child’s progress.
“Teachers and parents tend to be so busy that often you had to wait until parents evening to really find out what your child had been doing in school. But with 2Engage Parents I get regular updates, complete with photos and comments from the teacher straight into my inbox. I think it’s wonderful and it has really helped me support my child’s learning at home. My husband and I love reading through the reports together in the evenings. I would really recommend it to other parents.” Julie Greenwood, Parent, Camden
