Nursery Graduation

On the last Wednesday morning of term our Nursery pupils had their graduation. It is a way of recognising how far they have come in such a short time. In the last three terms they have been developing key skills which will enable them to have a successful start to school when they begin Reception in September.

  1. To be able to sit still and listen for a period of 20mins (normally to hear a story)
  2. To be aware of other children
  3. To know the meaning of the word 'no' and the boundaries it sets for behaviour
  4. To understand the meaning of the word 'stop' and the link it has to safety
  5. To be potty trained and able to use the toilet
  6. To recognise their own name
  7. To speak to an adult to ask for help
  8. To be able to dress and undress themselves
  9. To talk in sentences
  10. To open and enjoy a book (not necessarily to read it - but to appreciate the layout, pictures and text)
Please continue to work on these key skills with your children at home.
