Welcome to Greenfields Nursery. Miss Cheel is the teacher in Nursery.
Muddy Bairns is the name of the Early Years provision at Greenfields Community Primary School. You can read more about it here.
In Nursery we use a variety of techniques to ensure your child receives a curriculum tailored to their own needs and abilities. Children are robustly assessed on entry, through observations and activities, which are non-threatening to the child. This gives the teacher and teaching assistants a clear picture of where the children are in their stage of development and gives a firm baseline from which to plan each child’s next steps in learning.
The children use ‘Plan, Do and Review’ in their learning. This is where the children select a sequence of up to three activities to be completed throughout the session and they record them on their own planning board. The adult discusses what the child would like to achieve in these activities. At the end of the session the child is given the opportunity to discuss what they did whilst the adult displays the photographs on the large board. This method of working allows the children to become more autonomous in their decision making and also covers many of the Characteristics of Effective Learning.
Please contact the school office for more information about either the 15 hours universal offer or the 30 hours offer for working parents/carers.
