We're the Little Sparkles!
We have a lot to learn in Nursery and love to create our own learning opportunities through exploration and play!
Miss Chapman has been the Nursery teacher at Barwic for the last 5 years. She trained to be a teacher in London but the pull of Yorkshire was far too strong and she bounced straight back. Miss Chapman loves all things creative, active and natural and spends her free time making pots, decorating her home and going for walks. Miss Chapman has recently come across the children's show Kiri and Lou, she loves the way it explores feelings that children come across and shows them how to cope with these in a wonderfully hilarious way. One of Miss Chapman's favourite children's books is 'Walking through the Jungle' by Julie Lacome. She loves this because it gives everyone opportunity to move in different ways and explore making animal sounds.
Miss Birdsall has been a teaching assistant at Barwic Parade for four years, in Reception and now in Nursery. She is currently studying for a degree in Children's Learning and Development in York as well. Her favourite things to do include going to the beach and cooking. She's recently started running but can't run very far yet! She loves going for walks and bike rides with her family too. Miss Birdsall's favourite book is 'The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe' and she loves all of the Narnia stories. She read them when she was younger and as an adult too!
We have lots of fun in Nursery, learning in our beautiful environment, filled with awe, wonder and opportunities to explore. The children have over an hour of protected child-led learning time, with access to both indoors and out, when our children can be curious and become wholly engrossed in their learning experiences. Adults are always on hand to support and elevate the learning within the children's play.
We carefully design our curriculum so that it offers exciting and inspiring opportunities for all children to learn and develop. Although we have overarching themes, these are not rigid and we will follow children's interests when they arise. Our curriculum overview for this year can be found below.
