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 (COVID allowing) where we welcome parents and children for activities including messy play, craft, singing and story-time.

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.

Medium Term Plan- Summer 1 

Long Term Planning 

What we are learning this week! 

Our focus story this week is the traditional tale of 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. We have had lots of opportunities to explore the story, as well as plant our own beans, create drawings and painting to represent the story and even discuss what we would like to find at the top of a beanstalk! 

Home learning expectations

Reading 

Reception children will be sent home 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. 

 

Half Termly Challenges 

Reception and Nursery children will be sent home with 'challenges' at the start of each half term. These are linked to our topic of learning and will consist of 3 different challenges. Children are welcome to complete just 1 challenge, or all 3. These challenges are designed to be 'child led' so please support and encourage your child to complete the challenge to the best of their ability, but with their own ideas and input. There is no expectation for Nursery children to complete the 'home learning' but if they would like to attempt the challenges we would love to see the finished results. 

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
