Mrs Hartshorne

A huge welcome to Nursery’s Class page!

The class teacher is Mrs Hartshorne supported by Mrs Batley and Mrs Devlin alongside our SEN Teaching Assistant Miss Taylor.

It is our aim to provide a safe environment for the children to learn and this is achieved through play and exploration within a variety of topics. We also love to have fun, and music plays a big part in Nursery life whether it be singing songs and Nursery Rhymes, or listening to music while we are dancing. Exposing music to children at such a young age ignites a learning of sounds and meanings of words. This enhances our Phase 1 phonics which is based on distinguishing sounds.

School life begins in Nursery and we forge strong links with parents before the children even start, through organised play sessions where the children can get to know the adults and familiarise themselves with the setting. It is also an opportunity for parents to talk to staff about any questions they may have.

Our overall aim is to capture the children’s imagination which we hope will help to foster a love of learning to last a lifetime.
