Hello and welcome to our Nursery class page.

My name is Mrs Dwyer and I’m your class teacher, I have been teaching here at Northcote for 12 years. I have spent time teaching in Year 2, Year 1, Reception and now Nursery.  I will be working alongside the wonderful Mrs Kelshaw our nursery nurse who has over 20 years experience. 

 

Soon the children will be having lots of fun, learning new things and making friends. A lot of the learning that takes place and celebrations of children’s achievements will be shared via photographs, links and information on the learning platform SeeSaw.

Phonics

In Nursery we teach phase 1 phonics. What is Phase 1 phonics? Phase 1 phonics is the first stage of the phonics teaching programme. At this stage, the focus is primarily on developing speaking and listening skills. Speaking and listening are an important set of literacy skills that will create the foundation to a lot of your children’s further learning. At Northcote we use Little Wandle Phonics Scheme. You can find more information about this here:https://www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/resources/for-parents/

 

Have a look to see what we will be learning about in each subject, each half-term, during our time in Nursery!

 

The Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years. Please find the attached booklet to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing.
