We hope to be a child’s first step on an incredible educational journey through the Wichelstowe Trinity Learning Campus. This journey starts with our nursery, as we help children gain the skills and confidence they need to progress to the brand-new Kingfisher Academy for their primary years. And it will continue when they eventually step up to The Deanery Academy, taking them all the way through their secondary education.
As a Church of England nursery we imitate Jesus through our words, actions, gifts and skills. Our lives are an opportunity to shine brightly and we have a responsibility to guide and support others so that they can shine themselves, through the development of their gifts and through service to others.
To support the transition from nursery to reception we have also created a shared learning area which can bring together nursery and reception children for joint educational experiences. These carefully planned shared resources and spaces support the development and progression of your child, and make sure they are always ready for their next step.
Our children will learn how to listen and communicate through small group activities, expressing themselves through role-play, singing, and storytelling. Through supported play they will learn how to take turns and respond to others, as well as develop their motor movements. Our structured physical education sessions alongside our daily play and exploration will make sure your child masters the physical skills they need to progress to Reception.
We will nurture your child’s literacy through storytelling, songs and rhymes, both 1 to 1 and in group settings. We will develop early writing skills and creative skills through a sensory approach, introducing your child to the materials and tools they can use to make meaningful marks!
Your child will begin to explore mathematics through physical activities such as construction and by exploring shapes and measurements. We will learn to count through songs and actions, and develop problem solving skills through recognising patterns, asking questions and making comparisons.
