Welcome to Nursery!

These are our timetables for morning and afternoon nursery sessions:

Spend a day with us in Nursery and see how much we learn!


Look at the progress we have made in our ‘Draw a Person’ drawings since September!



The children love our provision and have a lot of fun learning through play!


We have a rich learning environment and enhance the areas with books, vocabulary and challenges.

Each term we aim to enhance the children’s learning with trips, visits and activities from the ’50 Things to do Before You’re 5′ guidance. Have a look what we have planned for the year!


Click the link below for additional information regarding the National Curriculum for Nursery or have a chat with Mrs Barker, Mrs Scholes or Miss Allison. Please see the Early Learning Goal progression maps below and on the EYFS subject page for a breakdown of skills the children will be learning.



Things to Remember

PE Kit

Please wear your PE kit to school on Tuesday and Thursday.


Reading at Fairburn View Primary School

Phonics: Your child will learn to read following the ‘Sounds Write’ Programme. This programme is designed to support the rigorous and systematic approach to teaching synthetic phonics.  Our caring teaching staff plan exciting lessons to meet the needs of all individual children.


There is a focus on reading across school and there is huge benefits to children reading at home. As part of school policy, we ask for children to read at least 3x at home and this is signed by a parent. You can help your children by hearing them read, but also checking their comprehension. Ask the questions about what they have just read, what they think will happen next and explain what they think of the books they are reading. It is important for children to read a range of texts as this makes them well rounded excellent readers.

Inside school, children have a daily guided reading session in which they have opportunity to have adult based and independent reading activities.

We appreciate your help and support in the matter.


Parent Partnerships

We welcome any opportunities for parents to share their skills and knowledge.
Please listen to your child read at home every day and record this in your child’s planner.

Thank you for your support.
