The Nurture Room

Creative Learning:

Our topic this term is The Three Billy Goats Gruff. We will be retelling this traditional fairy tale, in a creative way, using our very own school goats, Del and Rodney.

We will be using Fry’s Farm to bring our topic to life, combining Learning Outside the Classroom with our creative classroom projects.

 

Learning Outside the Classroom – Fry’s Farm:

The focus in LOTC is to develop confidence, resilience, emotional literacy and social skills.  Through a practical approach, on Fry’s Farm, the children develop many important life skills. Caring for our animals is an important part of our day and the children work hard to ensure all the animals’ needs are met. Jobs on the farm include:

  • Cleaning out animal cages.
  • Feeding the animals.
  • Taking the small animals to their runs for daily exercise.
  • Walking the giant rabbits on harnesses
  • Walking the ferrets in our wonderful wildlife area.
  • Feeding all animals and removal of old food.
  • Writing care plans.
  • Fundraising.

 

Morning Jobs:

Each morning, the children are given a task to complete. The purpose of this is to develop responsibility; life skills; problem solving skills and confidence. The jobs are completed on a rota basis (Boxall profile linked).

Morning tasks include:

  • Making porridge
  • Class administrator
  • Breakfast monitor
  • Jobs on Fry’s farm

 

Numeracy:

Numeracy lessons are targeted on an individual basis according to each child’s age and stage of development.

We also participate in many mathematical games and problem solving challenges. This not only helps us develop as mathematicians but also helps us to develop patience, to cope with disappointments and our listening skills.

 

Social Time:

This is a vital part of our morning, where children are encouraged to interact, problem solve and play together. This ‘play’ can be structured and carefully assessed by staff to enable the development of specific skills or unstructured, which allow the children to choose for themselves what they want to play and with who.

The children learn to take turns; share; problem solve and to manage their emotions. This learning time is carefully monitored by the Nurture Staff who also join in and model good social behaviours.

Social time is followed by story time where the children listen to a story to develop imagination and the enjoyment of reading.

 

Afternoon Specialised Interventions:

Fry’s Farm is our exceptional outdoor learning resource where children learn important life skills. Farm interventions run each afternoon where the Nurture staff focus on the development of teamwork; resilience; confidence building and effective participation. The children enjoy caring for our animals and developing their empathy and understanding of other living creatures.

 

Homework:

Homework is set in the Nurture Room. It is given out every Friday and is handed in each Thursday. Homework consists of a spelling exercise; sentence work or a Numeracy activity.
