Learning Through Play
Lullaby Lane’s aim is to create a happy and welcoming environment where all children feel safe, secure and valued. Our caring and approachable team of staff encourage all children to play and explore, think creatively and critically and most of all enjoy learning. During their time at nursery, children are offered a wide range of exciting and open-ended activities to investigate. We support them in becoming capable and confident learners whilst striving to give them the best start in life.
We begin each half term with a new topic; how these topics develop depends on the interests of the children and their curiosity.
On the first day back we discovered something had happened at the river! We went to explore and found some clues as to what could have happened. Lullaby lane children had lots of interesting ideas, we thought an animal did it. Then we thought about what type of animal and where animals come from?
Our first topic is, 'What is in the egg?' So far we have found out not all animals are born in side eggs.
I wonder what else we will discover about this topic?
In September we will learn how to write our names and focus on learning numbers to help us count.
- The role of parents and carers is very important to use. We have started a 'Parent and Carers Committee' and will soon be holding our first meeting. We want to provide a bigger voice to the parents and hope this will allow them to become more involved in the learning which takes place in nursery.
- We are starting 'Points make prizes'. This scheme aims to provide fun projects for children to do with parents and carers at home. The more projects completed means more points, more points means more prizes. Please get involved!
- We have provided all children with a book bag and school reading book. We are hoping to promote reading for pleasure and quality time between children and adults at home. Please read 3 times a week with your child.
