Here at Rendlesham Primary School, we have a 26 place Nursery class, which is open every morning during term-time and provides 15 hours of free early learning for 3 to 4 year olds. We open at 8.45 a.m. and finish at 11.45 a.m. and provide a whole range of exciting learning opportunities within each session: cookery, sculpture, finger painting, role play and PE, to name but a few.
We opened in September 2006 along with the rest of our lovely School and were able to create a purpose-built Nursery environment, both indoors and outside. Our spacious classroom with it's beautiful and age-appropriate Community Playthings furniture creates a calm background against which children engage excitedly with each other and with the carefully-planned learning activities. Outdoors, there is plenty of space to run, to hide, to make music, to dig and to grow flowers and vegetables. Our children enjoy being able to free-flow between the outside and indoor spaces according to their needs and interests, no matter what the weather brings - we splash in the puddles when it rains and make snow-castles when it snows.
We plan regular Nursery trips throughout the year, such as to Rendlesham forest, Baylham Rare Breeds or Ipswich Museum and have recently travelled to Lowestoft by train for a day at the seaside. We take part in the Whole School Activities - Sports' Day, Nativity plays, Class Assemblies and other special curriculum events throughout the year. We make good use of our wonderful School Library, taking books home each week to share with families and help develop a love of reading. Parents are invited to participate in a range of social gatherings - Nursery Rhyme-time, Popcorn parties, Easter parades and so forth but are also aways welcome to come into Nursery at any time to find out what their children have been learning.
The Nursery is staffed by Mrs Jo Reed, a specialist Early Years Teacher and Mrs Trudy Villa, an experienced Teaching Assistant. Parents and carers are encouraged to share their skills and talents with us and many become regular and much - appreciated class helpers. The recent School Ofsted reports that "In the Nursery children make good, often outstanding progress" and that "Teaching....in the Nursery is outstanding. Home visits, good links with the local children's centre and effective communication with families make sure that children's needs and interests are clearly understood on entry. Tasks set for the children are adapted accordingly".
Our aims are to provide an environment where young children can learn through
..............and have lots of fun and laughter along their learning journeys!
