Langland Community School

Be Our Best to Achieve Our Best!

Nursery

Welcome to Aspiring Acorns! 

Langland Community School Nursery is an important part of our school and aims to provide a high-quality learning environment that is accessible for all children so that they can learn to explore and become independent learners whilst feeling safe and secure. Our children are constantly learning through exploration and play, supported by sensitive, and knowledgeable adults all of which is underpinned by an uncompromising dedication to children’s well-being and safety.

Our skilled team welcome all children and works in partnership with parents and professionals to ensure all children reach their potential. Our children are respected for who they are and supported to grow into independent and resilient individuals.

We have an Early Years Lead who works across both our Nursery and Reception to support with transition and ensure that our children receive the highest standard of education and experiences from the onset.

Communication and Language

We believe communication and language is the foundation for Literacy. Through our gentle approach, we give children plenty of opportunity to use communication and language. We allow children time to express their feelings and needs through communication, along with giving them plenty of opportunities to develop confidence when communicating with others.

Physical Development

We use large- and small-scale climbing apparatus including plenty of outdoor exercise. The children will gain from musical movement, games, and PE to promote their gross motor control, co-ordination, and spatial awareness.  Throughout the day the children have plenty of opportunity to use their fine motor skills too, this helps build the muscles in their hands getting ready to learn how to hold a pen properly.

Personal, Social, and Emotional Development

We encourage children to manage their feelings and behaviours through clear routines, discussions and support when expressing themselves. We work together as a team of positive role models to develop independent and resilient individuals.

Literacy

We aim to provide the children with opportunities to communicate competently. Our welcoming reading corner will provide an area where they can immerse themselves in books. We have a wide range of writing materials available across all areas both inside and out.  This will encourage them to acknowledge our classroom filled with words, pictures, and labels, helping them to recognise words and begin to read.

Mathematics

Mathematics is embedded throughout the nursery from counting the children at circle time, sharing out snack, baking regularly to digging in the mud kitchen. Children will often be heard using mathematical language in play or discussions with everyone.

Understanding the World

We have created an open-ended environment where children can ask questions, explore, and begin to understand the world around them. We give the children the chance to embrace many cultural beliefs along with the opportunity for natural curiosity and interest of the outdoors.

Expressive Arts and Design

We provide the children with a range of free choice opportunities to express themselves, whether it is during dancing, singing or creating their own masterpieces. Role play is a huge part of nursery and the children learning about themselves through acting out real life experiences or imaginary play.

 

Children can start attending our Nursery in the term after their third birthday. All children are entitled to 15 hours free childcare, and some will be entitled to 30 hours. Please visit https://www.gov.uk/30-hours-free-childcare for more information.

Home Visits

At Langland, we believe that home visits help to develop trust, good communication and a strong relationship between families and school.  

If your child is new to our setting, before their start date we will arrange to come and visit you at home. This is applicable for both our nursery and reception classes. 

If your child has attended our nursery and will be starting school in September, we will not arrange a home visit unless it is something that you wish to happen. If this is the case, please contact the team to request this.
