People in school:
Mrs Obank: I am the head teacher of the school. You will see me everyday on the school gates and I will say 'hello' to you. I really like it when children say 'hello' back. I will often pop into your classroom to see all of your amazing work and I like giving out special awards for brilliant things. You will see me in assembly and at other times in the school day.
I am very excited to welcome you all to school soon.
Mrs Cannon: I am your class teacher. I can't wait to see you all on your first day. We are going to have so much fun together. I will help you in the classroom and teach you lots of new things. I will show you where all the toys are and make sure you are safe at school.
I can't wait to meet you all soon.
Mrs Silvey: I will be the LSA in your classroom. That means I will help you with your learning and look after you. We may play inside or outside, but we will have lots of fun together. I am excited to see you all soon.
Mrs Murray: I will be teaching you on a Wednesday and Thursday. I am very excited about everything we will learn together. I can't wait to see you all soon!
Charlotte: I cook the school lunches. I make yummy meals each day for you to eat at lunchtime. You will see me in the dinner hall and you can tell me what you would like to eat. I will help you to try new foods and I give out lots of stickers for children who eat up all their dinner!
Early Years Foundation Stage
Within the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum there are 7 areas of learning.
Communication and Language, Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Physical Development.
Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive Arts and Design and Understanding the world.
At Mountnessing C of E Primary School we have developed a curriculum which supports and develops the whole child and provides a rich, broad and balanced set of learning opportunities. We place equal importance on supporting children's social and emotional development as we do on their learning.
We base our practice on four principles, these are:
- That every child is unique.
- Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
- Children need enabling environments with appropriate support from adults to build their learning.
- Children learn and develop at different rates.
We want to provide the very best start to education for every child. We believe that every child deserves to have an equal chance of success and we ensure our provision is high quality and inclusive. we ensure children's special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are identified quickly and children receive extra help they need promptly to ensure they can progress well in their learning.
We follow Little Wandle Letters and Sounds as our phonics and reading scheme. Please find attached links to video's which support parents.
