Little Stars

Welcome to Little Stars, we have a mixture of Nursery and Reception children within our classroom.  The children are aged from 3 to 5 years old. 

In our classroom the children have access to a range of activities both inside and outside.  The Nursery children are expected to join in with an adult led activity before doing their own independent learning where they have a choice of adult or child initiated activities.

The reception children are required to do a literacy/topic based activity first thing in the morning with the teacher.  They are then allowed to do their own independent learning with the nursery children.  They are then expected to do a mathematical activity within a small group which is a practical based activity.  Before lunch the reception children do a phonics activity in small focused groups with an adult.

During the day the children have the opportunity to have a piece of fruit. They also have the opportunity to have milk or water at snack time and water is available all day.


This is our class prayer:

Thank you for all the toys

Thank you for all our friends

Thank you for our food.

Thank you for helping us to learn.

Thank you for everything.
