Welcome to Beam's Nursery

At Beam County Primary School, the EYFS Framework is implemented through planned, purposeful play. Our aim is to ensure we provide a happy atmosphere where children are valued, have fun, and thrive in all areas. We have a ‘child-centred’ approach, recognising each child as a unique individual, and we encourage meaningful play because this is how children learn in their early years.

Through these seven areas of learning and development, your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge, and demonstrating understanding. These are divided into prime areas and Specific areas.

Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:

  1. Personal, Social and Emotional Development:
  2. Communication and Language:
  3. Physical Development:

These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning.

The 4 specific areas include essential skills and knowledge for children. They develop from the prime areas and provide important contexts for learning. These are:

  1. Literacy
  2. Mathematics
  3. Understanding the World
  4. Expressive Arts and Design

These learning opportunities contribute to the development of the ‘whole child’ as our aim is to enable all our children to have fun and foster a lifelong love of learning.

We hope the pictures show you exactly how much is happening at our wonderful Nursery.

Our love of reading!

The children in the nursery have a passion for stories and rhymes. You will often find them snuggled with a book with their friend or sharing a story with an adult. We encourage reading to children daily as this helps children to develop an extensive range of vocabulary and will support them in becoming independent readers and writers.
We have started our home to school library sessions now where children choose a book of their choice with their key-worker to take home and share with their adult. Please encourage children to look after these books and bring them to nursery on their library day. It is good practice for a child to know a book well, so reading the same book over and over again does have its benefits!
