Welcome to Cygnets Class.
My name is Mrs Reader and I am the N1 Co-ordinator for Cygnets class.
Cygnets is the new nursery class at Caldecott for children ages 2 – 3 years, offering funded and childcare spaces for 15 or 30 hours each week. Cygnets class offers the younger children an opportunity to experience nursery in a smaller environment before moving across to Swans class in the main school building.
We have recently acquired and refurbished a new classroom on the school site with secure play and learning areas.
In Cygnets we will focus on play based learning in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.
We value parental input to aid our planning, assessment and teaching in Foundation Stage. When you notice your child doing something for the first time, having a special interest or being really involved with an activity at home, please fill in a 'parent observation' slip available in the classroom.
When your child makes you very proud, for example, catches a ball or eats all their vegetables! - Please fill in a 'wow' slip. We will put the slips on to our ‘Wow wall’ and later they will be added to your child's profile which contributes to our understanding of their development and interests.
We are looking forward to welcoming our new intake of children for 2018 for lots of fun playing indoors and outdoors. From making playdough, arts and crafts activities, stories and songs to bikes, climbing equipment and mini beast investigation to name a few!
