Welcome to our Nursery Unit
Rosetta Nursery is an integral part of our school and is located within the main school building. The Nursery class has an experienced, fully qualified teacher and nursery assistant; and offers full time places for 26 children, from 8.45 a.m. to 1.15 p.m. The Nursery provides a happy, secure environment where children can develop at their own rate through challenging and progressive play. ETI praised the nursery unit for, ‘Providing rich learning opportunities for children in all areas of the pre-school curriculum.’ Children and their families are welcomed into the life of Rosetta Primary School.
The Nursery class also provides opportunities for the children to grow in self-confidence, develop social skills and to communicate effectively. The children enjoy a wide variety of indoor and outdoor play based activities through which they have the opportunity to develop a range of skills and capabilities. The Nursery Unit has an extensive outdoor area, the Woodland and Adventure World enhance the children’s learning.
We love using the Interactive Whiteboard in Nursery!
Below the Nursery class are showing how to draw on the whiteboard in our class. We have to use the 'magic pen' to tap and select the colours we need for our picture; we can change the colours we use, as many times as we want! We are learning colour names and also are developing our pre-writing skills, such as pencil control and grip and hand-eye co-ordination. Check back soon for an update on our latest whiteboard creations!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1.....blast off into Space with us!
In November, Nursery have been learning about space. We have been travelling to the moon in our rocket ship and have taken on the role of astronauts. As a treat, we had rocket lollies for snack and we also got a new foam rocket launcher for outdoor play. We have learnt how to set the rocket launcher up and can now use it independently; we have also been practicing our countdown from 10....just like real astronauts do when there is a space launch! We have also learnt about forces and gravity- we realised that once something goes into the air, it must come back down again.
