Welcome to Nursery Rosen Class. On this page you will find information about how we organise teaching and learning in the nursery at Shoreditch Park and see highlights, through photos and videos, of the things we have done.
Class organisation at Shoreditch Park Nursery
Shoreditch Park Nursery has space for 14 children to attend full time. In addition, we have 11 part time morning places and 11 part time afternoon places. We currently have a few places available in our nursery so if you would like a place or would like to visit the school and see our outstanding Foundation Stage provision we hold open mornings every Wednesday at 9am. Please contact the school office to arrange your visit.
Links with Parents and Carers
All parents and carers are welcome to join us at our weekly drop-in sessions. We hold 'Share a Story' sessions every Wednesday and 'Pencil Skills' sessions every Thursday. Both these session are held from 8.45am - 9.10am.
Nursery Staff Team
At Shoreditch Park Nursery we are very fortunate to have two members of staff working full time with the nursery children:
Miss Stevenson - Class Teacher
Miss Twiner - Nursery Education Officer
All members of staff work closely with all children and we encourage parents and carers to talk to them on a daily basis about the learning they are doing. Your child's class teacher has overall responsibility for developing a trusting and caring relationship with you and your child, ensuring they are settled and happy and that they develop a range of new skills. Your child’s class teacher will share information with you about your child’s progress and achievements on a regular basis.
Weekly Timetable and Teaching in the Nursery
In the Early Years Foundation Stage children learn best when they experience learning first hand, through meaningful interactions with others, through physical activity and through play. The Early Years curriculum emphasises three prime areas of learning:
- Personal, social and emotional
- Communication and Language
The curriculum breaks down into four further areas of learning:
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design
Teaching in the nursery is organised through a range of approaches and provides a balance of child initiated and adult-led activities:
- Planned focused activities where adults work with a small group of children at a time. Teachers will differentiate the activity to meet the needs of every child participating.
- Whole class teaching for short periods of time such as shared storytime, direct teaching (for example of maths), songs and rhymes, discussions and sharing work.
- Opportunities for teachers to work alongside children as they develop their own interests in particular areas of the curriculum.
