Warwick Class is the home of our Foundation Stage. We welcome up to 10 children in our Nursery (from the term after their third birthday) and 20 children in our Reception. The children spend some time learning with their age group, and some time learning with the whole class, meaning that our nursery children have a very smooth transition when they begin their Reception Year.

We adapt our long term planning based on the children’s interests, ensuring a strong focus on the prime areas of learning: Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development, alongside the four specific areas of learning: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Our curriculum plans can be found by following the links below. We teach systematic synthetic phonics using Read Write Inc., more information can also be found below.

Parent information for this term:

In the Starry Night project, your child will explore the differences between the world at night time compared with daytime, through a range of exciting and creative activities. They will find out about nocturnal animals and how they find food when it is dark. They will find out about people who work at night and the different jobs that people do when we are asleep. They will discuss bedtime routines and the importance of a good night’s sleep. They will explore the night sky and find out about the Moon and stars.

Supporting your child at home

  • Look at the night sky and see how many stars you can see each night.
  • See how the Moon changes shape each night.
  • Go on a short walk after dark or go into the garden. Take a torch to light the way. Discuss how things look different in the dark.
  • Share and discuss the Did you know? resource.

A Burford Primary School, we ensure that our early years setting is driven by the four guiding principles:

  • every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured
  • children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships
  • children learn and develop well in enabling environments with teaching and support from adults, who respond to their individual interests and needs and help them to build their learning over time. Children benefit from a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers.
  • importance of learning and development. Children develop and learn at different rates.
