Welcome to the Early Years section of our school website. Here you will find information about how we organise the classrooms and teaching and learning in Early Years at London Fields.
We have one Nursery Class and two Reception classes.
Our Nursery is made up of (approximately) 26 full time places and 8 part time places (mornings or afternoons). Our spacious Nursery area has its own toilets, kitchen and gated outdoor garden. The garden comprises a mud kitchen, water area and climbing wall, as well as many other resources that are timetabled throughout the year. The Nursery children also have access to the bigger playground (used by Reception). In this larger space, children enjoy using the bikes and scooters and having their own ‘running lane’. Later in the year, Nursery children also enjoy timetabled slots on the climbing frame in a separate playground.
Our two Reception classes are made up of 30 children each. The classrooms are next to each other with direct access to the playground. Children access both classrooms and the outdoor area throughout the day. The large outdoor area comprises a mud kitchen, water area, building equipment, bikes and scooters. Large gazebos offer shelter from the sunshine and help provide specific areas for the children to access including a reading area and a role play area. Children use the Nursery toilets and also the toilets in the main building. Reception also access the climbing wall located in the Nursery garden and the large climbing frame in the separate playground.
For both Nursery and Reception, lunch is served in the classroom where there is a family service (choice of school or packed lunch).
Children (and parents/carers) are greeted at the classroom door and are dismissed similarly at the end of the day.
