Pre-school

Our Pre-school room is exclusively for children to start in the September before they are due to leave for school this helps us to ensure that we give them the best possible start and preparation for school life in our room which is mirrored to a school early years environment. They have one large room which is set up with a variety of different ‘learning’ areas and a separate language and literacy room where practitioners carry out learning lessons with their key group twice a day. They cover a range of topics throughout the year and are given homework and reading books to help prepare both parents and children for school life. We work extremely closely with schools and invite teachers in to meet the children in order for a smooth transition to their next journey. Pre-school have two pet rabbits, Tom and Jerri. This allows the children to start understanding how to care for living things and they enjoy the responsibility of helping to care for them.  A cuddly bear called 'Rainbow bear' is sent home each weekend with a child.  Rainbow bear spends the weekend at home with the children and we ask the parents to complete a diary with photos.  This helps promote parent partnership and communication skills for the children when they are showing and telling what they have been up to.

Homework

Homework is important in the Pre-school year as it encourages parents to have an active role in their child’s learning and development.  Practitioners will work in partnership with parents to ensure children are receiving homework which will be stage appropriate according to each child’s individual interests, and development.

Homework prepares preschool children for the next stage in their life….. going to school.  Homework relates to what is learned in pre-school and teaches children to become independent learners.

The types of homework we provide are:

  • Letter of the week

  • Practice writing our names

  • Number problems and shape work

  • Nature walks

  • All about me and my family

  • Pencil control

  • Feelings and emotions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                

We also send reading books home with children to encourage imagination and improve language skills.

Zumba

The Pre-school children have a term time weekly dance session with our dance teacher Sally.  Dancing is known to increase children’s range of motions, endurance and strength and helps to improve coordination.  Dance is intended to be a social experience, and when children exercise together, they learn to work with a group.  It boosts confidence and provides an outlet for children to express emotions.

Football session

The pre-school children have a term time weekly football session with Kixx Rochdale.  Football classes help to encourage a healthy lifestyle.  Other benefits include developing friendships and working as a team, stimulation of social skills and development of fundamental movement and ball skills.

Eliza Says - Singing and Signing

The pre-school children have a term time weekly singing and signing session in nursery.  Lorenza from Eliza says comes into nursery for the children to participate in a fun and relaxed singing and signing session.  The children learn some sign language through rhyme, play and song.
