We currently have 5 Nursery children who join Reception and Year 1 in Dolphin Class. They have the opportunity to engage in Maths, Phonics and Literacy input with the class teacher- Miss Jackson. They then take part in learning activities with an adult including focused tasks, mark making, craft activities, continuous provision, outdoor learning and child-initiated play.
We use an observation and assessment tool called Tapestry. Parents can connect to their child's account and look through their fantastic achievements with a description and picture to help explain what they have been doing.
Here's a picture of our transition day which was attended by the Nursery children who are joining Dolphin Class in Summer Term. They had the opportunity to go on a 'listening walk', explore their new classroom, make new friends and join us for milk time. As you can see, they were very excited and ready to start their journey at ISP!
Take a look at what we have been up to this Summer Term...
Our Nursery girls have been impressing Miss Jackson with how quickly they can order numbers. They have even started to work on counting backwards from 20.
At Ireleth St Peter's, our children have the opportunity to join their class for 10 swimming sessions in the Summer Term. These are a fantastic way to introduce the children to the water and to start building vital swimming skills from an early point in their school life. They learn skills such as floating, kicking, water buoyancy and how to stay safe in the water. It was a very sunny day when we had our very first session as you can tell from this picture!
Everyone in Dolphin Class loves baking! Nursery children, along with Reception and Year 1, made chocolate cornflake cakes following a recipe and really enjoyed eating them during milk time.
