Change of clothes:
We encourage all the children to ' get stuck in' and involved with whatever activities they choose- this can sometimes be very messy. Our day also includes outdoor play so children may get wet. Therefore, we ask that all children bring in a change of clothes- this also helps in case of any toilet accidents.
Phonics and Reading:
In the nursery, we teach phonics through Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised programme.
Phase 1 phonics letters and sounds focus on developing children's concentration, speaking, and listening skills which also includes oral blending.
This is done by sharing stories, poems, and a wide range of nursery rhymes so that children become familiar with sounds in their environment.

Reading with your child is a great way to bond with them and this will have a huge impact on their learning and development. At Cavendish Nursery, we pride ourselves on providing children with the opportunity to have a wide range of books in both indoor and outdoor environments.
Additional resources and further reading:
In Cavendish Nursery, early maths concepts are a part of everyday learning and routines.
Some objectives include:
• Reciting numbers.
• Subitising to 3.
• Recognise 1-5.
• Begin mathematical mark-making.
• Notice things that are the same and those that are different.
• Use positional language in everyday activities.
• Coin recognition.
• Notice number patterns in stories and songs.
• Notice numerals that are the same- as their age or house number.
• Talk about and explore 2D and 3D shapes.
Ways you can support your child's learning at home:
• Look for numbers and shapes in the environment as you are out and about.
• Count regularly with your child- as they are tidying up and encourage them to use mathematical vocabulary.
• Find the same amount of different items to help your child understand what numbers mean. for example, find 3 spoons, 3 hats, or 3 socks.
• Putting items in order. You could do this by weight, height, or size.
