Meet our Early Years

Our Nursery Teacher

Mrs Sharpe, Nursery Teacher

My name is Mrs Sharp and I am the Nursery Teacher at Knutsford Primary Academy. I have worked at Knutsford for just over a year, however I have worked with children in many different settings for 40 years. I really enjoy seeing the children grow and develop their learning and do this by knowing them as individuals and finding out about their love of learning.

A typical morning in Nursery

8.50amChildren arrive, self register and then go to their busy fingers activity
9.00amChildren join together on the carpet for a welcome session/circle time
9.15amChildren take part in small group activities and then play and learn in both the indoor and outdoor environments. Snack is available
9.30amThe children split into small groups for phonics based activities
11.15amThe children gather together for a story or sing songs and rhymes
11.50amDoors open for home time

“I really like playing with all my friends”

“I like all the toys we play with”

Our EYFS Curriculum

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the name we give to the two years a child is in the nursery and reception classes. These classes follow a statutory curriculum called the EYFS Framework. Teachers have created a curriculum based upon the principles of this framework and also follow the children’s interests and next steps in development when planning the  curriculum and learning opportunities for the children. Practitioners carefully plan stimulating, exciting and practical play based learning experiences for the children. These may be as a whole class, in a small group or as part of child initiated play when the children can freely explore and engage in their indoor and outdoor environments, selecting their own resources to facilitate their own play and learning experiences. 

These take place in the classroom or outside. The framework covers the areas of learning and development which shapes the activities and experiences that children have in our early years setting. The seven areas of learning are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • maths
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design.
