Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Our Class Rules
In Nursery, we are learning new rules and routines so that the nursery is a happy and safe space to learn in. We are becoming familiar with the environment both indoors and outdoors and are beginning to know how to take care of the resources. We are building skills to become an effective learner and know that when we do…
Good sitting on the mat
Good looking at the person who is talking
Good listening to the person who is talking
We become Good thinkers
And Good at remembering
In Nursery we have been learning the routines of the day. At the beginning of each session we use the visual timetable so that the children are aware of what activities are going on throughout the session. The children are becoming familiar with these routines and they can refer to the timetable displayed in nursery to help them understand what is happening next. The children are learning to take responsibility for their belongings, and they know where to put their coats, drink bottles and lunch bags when they come into nursery.
Our Classroom Environment
The children are becoming more familiar with their surroundings and the resources available to them. They take care of the resources by handling them with care and tidying them away safely at the end of each session. The nursery is set up so that the children have access to all areas of learning within the EYFS curriculum. The children know the different activities on offer each day and can talk about what to do in each area.
