Here at Roseberry staff follow The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Staff plan activities for groups and individuals to support their learning. The nursery follows a topic of the term but adapt to child’s interests as and when. We use an online learning journey which parents can access to record observations of your child. These are personal records to your child which only you can access.

This is an example of the daily routine we follow in nursery. We also enjoy Geography once a week were we explore different countries in the world. During the day we participate in disco dough which supports the development of our fine motor skills.
This is just a snapshot of what activities we participate in during the hours of nursery.
Homework is given each week. The activities are related to what the children have been learning about. Children are also given a story book to share at home with their family. At Roseberry Primary we have a strong passion for reading and encourage parents to support children adopting this passion. Children are encouraged to read at home every day. Children are able to take home a book from our library that they can share with their parents and siblings.
Children have free flow snack on a morning and an afternoon where they can independently help themselves to fruit, milk and water.
All children are expected to wear a full school uniform in Nursery. We ask that parents also send in a change of clothes and a pair of wellies that can be left at school. Parents are also asked to send their child into school in appropriate clothing as we will be accessing the outdoor area no matter the weather. All items of clothing should be clearly labelled with your child’s name to ensure they are returned to the correct child.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate in contacting the school where we will be pleased to answer any queries.
