North Bridge House Nursery School
North Bridge House Nursery School houses three year groups: Nursery; Pre-Reception and Reception, and prepares children for the years ahead with a wonderful introduction to school life.
Children in Nursery, Pre-Reception and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which covers seven key areas:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development;
Literacy; Communication and Language;
Understanding the World;
Physical Development (Gym and Dance);
Expressive Arts and Design (including Music).
Children in our Nursery Year cover a wide range of curricular topics from shape and colour to weather and the seasons. Daily story time and outdoor play, as well as weekly gym and music sessions are also factored into the curriculum, providing children with a fully rounded education and helping to develop their social skills at this important young age.
Pre-Reception and Reception
In Pre-Reception and Reception, we continue to explore the key EYFS areas using a variety of enjoyable teaching approaches, which not only accelerate our pupils’ development but take them beyond the curriculum and into a wider learning experience.
Once pupils move up to the Pre-Preparatory School for Years 1 and 2, they delve into subject specific areas including Science and RE to further develop their understanding of the world. Mathematics is taught from a practical perspective, enhancing pupils’ basic numeracy skills and teaching them how to apply their knowledge. Children have increased use of iPads and computers, using technology as a learning aid within the classroom as well as during ICT lessons.
