Welcome to Nursery...

We would like to offer a warm welcome to all  of our new children and the children who are already part of our Highfield family. The staff are Miss Griffiths, Mrs Jones, Miss Robinson and Mrs Wall. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to us.

Each term, we have a focus on personal, social and emotional development and well-being to ensure the children have the best chance to settle well into school routines and establish good relationships with their teachers and the other children.

Our narrative immersion for this half of the spring term is 'Dear Fairy Godmother'. Each week a different fairy story character will write a letter asking for the Fairy Godmother's help in finding a solution to their problem. The children will be the happy helpers, working together to find solutions to the characters' problems. The main themes we are exploring this term are 'problem solving', 'working together and helping others' and 'rules and behaviour'. This is all delivered through our creative curriculum using the Story Box.

The planning for this narrative is included in the list of 'Files to Download' which can be found below.

For children who are learning remotely, we can provide the planning, any online links and some of the resources for the week.

In addition to this, all of the children have a Purple Mash account which can be found by following this link:

In the Early Years at Highfield, we use Tapestry to keep parents up to date with what the children are learning. You may also use this to comunicate with us and we will always try to answer your queries as soon as we can.
