Sunflower Room

Literacy

Literacy is embedded across the whole curriculum in Camelon Nursery.

All children are provided with experiences that encourage them to recognise their own name, such as selecting their name at snack time or putting their name on their art work.

Various resources are provided to encourage children's emergent writing skills such as pencils, crayons, chalk, pens, paints, etc., as well as sand, foam and mud. These can all be used to encourage the children to mark make and write.

We have daily experiences with stories and songs - the children are encouraged to choose what we read and sing. We also have daily 'together time' sessions where the children participate in smaller group learning experiences, often focusing on Literacy activities.

Numeracy

Numeracy is also embedded across the whole curriculum in Camelon Nursery.

All children have regular access to math resources in the Sunflower Room such as table top games, puzzles books and computer games.

The children have a good awareness of numbers and enjoy counting ryhmes and songs that support their understanding of numeracy.

Outdoors

The children love exploring the 'adventure land' at the back of the Sunflower Room garden. We are currently running a competition to name this part of the garden. Speak to any member of staff for more details.

The children have daily opportunities to explore the outdoors during their time at nursery. The wind and rain doesn't put them off! They simply wrap up warmly in waterproof suits and wellies and face the elements!
