At Thorpe Primary school, we are proud to offer a stimulating, engaging and caring nursery environment for the children to begin their education. Through thoughtful planning, we offer the children opportunities to explore, discover and learn through indoor and outdoor provision. Our ultimate goal is for children to thrive and develop a lifelong love of learning so they are prepared for the next stage of their education. We aim to create an environment that feels safe and to build trusting relationships; this is done through parent partnerships and planning based on the children's needs and interests, as well as putting the child's voice at the heart of what we do. We want the children to feel confident to develop their own skills, build independence and resilience and understand how to respect the world around us. As passionate professionals, we support children by providing rich learning experiences, extending their learning and capturing magical moments.
A PE specialist attends on a Tuesday and Thursday to provide 'Kidnetics' for the children. We do not require children to attend school in a PE kit as we only take our shoes and socks off! Please practise this skill at home to help your child be as independent as possible!
Please remember to bring raincoats, wellies and other suitable items of clothing for the different weathers, thank you.
Please remember sign up to your child's tapestry and Dojo account! Thank you!
Early Years Curriculum
At Thorpe Primary school, we are passionate about creating lifelong learners who are resilient, engaged and motivated about finding out new information and challenging themselves. We also teach them to follow the whole school 'T.R.Y' ethos. We are keen for children to develop their understanding of the world around them through play. Play is an incredibly important part of child development as children can consolidate, discover and learn through it in an enjoyable and fascinating way. In Nursery and Reception, we follow a curriculum that considers the 'whole child' in their learning and development. This includes the following areas of learning:
