Albury & Puller Nursery & Primary Schools

 

Welcome to Albury Early Years

Albury Early Years consists of Pre-School, Nursery and Reception age children. Your child can join us in the Pre-School the term after they turn 2.

Albury Primary and Nursery school offers every child small class sizes and big opportunities. We have access to the use of wooden play equipment, a field and playground. The Pre-School, Nursery and Reception children also benefit from a recently refurbished secure garden area with spaces for play, digging, construction, story-telling and gardening.  We also offer the Pre-School, Nursery and Reception children regular wellie walks in the local area.

Children in Pre-School, Nursery and Reception are given a variety of learning opportunities every day which range from daily phonics sessions, maths, literacy, RE and topic learning. We also have our own 'Toddler group' which runs every Tuesday morning from 9am- 10:15am where we welcome parents and children for activities including messy play, craft, singing and story-time. For more information on Albury Toddler group please visit Albury Toddler Group (Parents menu tab)

Pre-School and Nursery hours can be flexible dependent on parents needs and work situations. We offer 15 or 30 hours free childcare for 3 and 4 year olds and this can be taken as needed. We can also offer paid for extra sessions if your child doesn’t qualify for the 30 hours free childcare.

NELI

We are delighted to be able to offer the NELI programme at Albury Primary School.

As part of this DfE funded programme schools have been provided access to a tablet-based assessment called LanguageScreen. 

LanguageScreen is a short (approx. 10 minutes) fun activity for children which gives useful information about children’s language skills. This assessment is used at the beginning to help schools decide who may benefit most from receiving the NELI intervention and again at the end of the school year to see how children’s language skills have benefited from the programme.

 

 

What we are learning this half term - May 2022

 As part of our new topic 'Go Wild' we are looking at nature and animals, with a particular focus on safari and jungle animals. This topic gives children an opportunity to explore which animals are found in different countries, share animal themed songs and poems and learn interesting facts about animals.

 

 

Home learning expectations

Homework

Reception: Home learning will be sent home on a Friday to be returned on the following Wednesday. Please support your child to complete the home-learning tasks, and most importantly enjoy them! We would love feedback as to how your child is finding their homework.
Nursery: Home learning will be sent home once a half term - the first Tuesday of each half term.  

Reading 

Reception children will be sent home with a library book of their choice at the beginning of the week. We ask that this is returned on a Friday, and they will have a new book the following week. They will also be sent with a reading book from the Read Write Inc scheme. This book will focus on the sounds learnt during phonics lessons and will give children an opportunity to consolidate their learning at home. This book will be changed weekly. As well as reading this book daily with your child we also ask that they are sharing a wide range of other stories to help develop their love of reading. 

Please sign up to the Oxford Owl website which offers free books and activities https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/

 

Maths

Please try some of the daily challenges on the monthly Maths calendar. This will be uploaded onto the 'Maths' page of the website.

Please also support your child to try some of the School Jam activities on the app. These are linked to our current learning and follow the same scheme of work. 

Children also have access to Mini Mash which contains games and activities. Please use your school login (contact us if you have issues accessing this) https://www.purplemash.com/sch/albury
