Welcome to our Nursery page.

Nursery start date: Thursday 7th September 2017.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Our class Teacher is Miss Smart.  Supporting nursery class we have Teaching Assistant Mrs Balshaw and our Children’s Centre practitioners; Mrs Jones and Mrs Smith.

We currently run morning nursery sessions Monday to Friday 8:45 am-11.45 pm. Children can access breakfast and evening wrap around care which takes the school day from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm – for further details please see staff or alternatively directly contact the Children’s Centre: 0151 928 4544.

Litherland Moss Nursery is a warm and welcoming place where children are happy to play and learn. The children join us at 3 years of age and quickly settle into their new surroundings. We plan enriching learning experiences which aim to inspire the child inside and outside of the classroom.

We use a highly effective key-person system where children are able to develop strong relationships. This has an extremely positive impact on their sense of self-esteem and feelings of emotional security. Staff provide children with clear and consistent boundaries to promote positive behaviour and praise them using our class ‘rainbow.’ We teach children to listen, be kind, gentle and play safely. To find out more, do phone, email or even better, call in and see for yourself.  We look forward to meeting you!

Reminders:

Nursery children bring their book bag into school on Fridays to take a library book home each week.

Snack is £1 each week – healthy food options daily for children to access in our Little Moss Tea Shop.

PE takes place on Thursday mornings, please make sure your child has suitable pumps or trainers.  Please remove earrings or cover them prior to nursery.

What we are learning this term:

This term we will be learning ‘All About Me’:

We will look at ourselves, how we are all different, our bodies and families. As children settle in to their new routines they will be developing their social and emotional skills, learning how to be effective communicators and becoming confident individuals.

Our overview for the year: curriculum-map-2016-2017 

How you can support at home:

Share your child’s reading book with them and sing lots of nursery rhymes. Encourage your child to make up heir own versions or endings to stories. Can they say a rhyming string (frog, log, dog)?

To support their mathematics, count how many trees, dogs, flowers they can spot on your way to and from school?  Involve your child with house chores like counting out the correct number of dinner plates, knives and forks for tea. Do they notice numbers in the environment on signs, packages and doors?

Let your child help out with any writing: birthday cards; letters; notes; shopping lists.   Can they give meaning to the marks they make? Have fun supporting them to write their names in shaving foam, bath crayons, glitter, chalk or rice.

If you need any advice on how to extend your child’s learning at home, Miss Smart is always happy to help.
