CROESO I FEITHRINFA / WELCOME TO NURSERY
We are a big Nursery with forty children both morning and afternoon. We have a teacher and three classroom assistants to support and nurture each child’s development. We have a large light and airy main room with lots of toys and games, a Numeracy area, mark making table, iPads, interactive whiteboard, and book corner. We have a super Block Play area in which we build and construct amazing structures and have a sensory room where we can watch the changing lights, the bubble tubes and explore different sounds and smells. We have lots of opportunities to dress up and use musical instruments in our imaginative areas, splash in the water tray, and build sandcastles in the sand tray.
Outside, we have a large garden area where you can ride our bikes and scooters. We have an outdoor undercover area and lots of sets of waterproofs and a wellie store so that we can be outside every day. We have a little shop which can become a grocers, cafe or florists and a large play house that we can change into a garden centre, farmers market or even Santa’s Grotto. You may like to help us to plant some flowers and vegetables and watch them grow.
We spend lots of time exploring our beautiful school grounds and the forest school area. We enjoy treasure hunts, practical topic based activities, stories at the log circle, and we even bring our teddies to school for a teddy bear picnic!
We have six exciting topics across the year. Our first topic, Getting to Know You, is all about you - exploring your new Nursery environment both indoors and out getting to know your new teachers and friends, getting very messy with the paint, playdough and foam, learning routines and rules, and telling us all about wonderful, fabulous, unique YOU!
Every day we have a short group time when we develop our key skills and talk about an aspect of our topic. We all get together at the end of the session to listen to a story and sing our favourite songs in Welsh and English. We have such fun and learn many new exciting things through exploration and play. Why don’t you join us? We would love to welcome you to Rhiwbeina Nursery Class.
When you join our school you will be provided with your own login to HWB and then you can access our Nursery Google Classroom (with adult help of course).
Here you will find the topic related interactive 'Helping at Home' information which contains lots of links for you to explore which will help you with your learning.
