All the EYFS staff welcome you to Bakers Class! We teach, play with and generally have many fun times with the Nursery children. As well as working with the children in playing and learning time, Mrs Wreford also teaches the Nursery in focus times. Mr Brown and Mrs Dugmore have many years experience working at Wolborough and they have both taught nearly all year groups from Nursery up to year 6. They plan and over see the activites and what is being taught in the Early Years. They are lucky to be working alongside highly experienced staff, who are knowledgeable and passionate about giving all the EYFS children the best possible learning experiences.
In Bakers Class, whenever possible, we believe in child-led learning. This means that we will interact with the children and guide them in the activities that they have chosen to do. This means that our day is mainly playing games and generally having fun!! It is not all fun rough; when working with the children; we will develop their literacy and mathematical skills and knowledge, we will help them build relationships and confidence, we will help them to express themselves in different ways (role play, painting, music) and we will help them to understand the world.
Our day usually consists of 4 small focuses through the day, where we sit, learn, sing and play together. The other times of the day are known as Playing and Learning. This means that the children are free to access any of the 3 areas of the Early Years. The children could play and learn outside, in Bakers class or in Forde class. There many activities the children can play and interact with, such as; role play, climb, build, write, read, paint, play music, junk model, problem solve and we encourage the children to come up with their own games.
The children build great relationships with both the adults and the other children and they love coming to Nursery - but they also love seeing their adults at the end of the day too!
