Nursery & Reception
On this page you will get an inside view of some of the educational methods and activities used by our pre-school educators to give your children the best start in life
The focus in language in these two years is on how to help children develop the refined skills necessary for communication as they learn how to become more expressive, vocal, work and play together with others.
Oral, listening, writing, and reading skills are developed through naming exercises (e.g. identifying the nouns in a classroom); One on one writing, writing activities that include motor skills (e.g. practice colours by picking the right pompom colour with a tweezer and placing it onto the right coloured sheet). Connect the dots and tracing of sandpaper letters allows the children to see then feel the shape and learn how it is formed, and then hear the teacher pronounce the sound.
Different letter sound games (e.g. can you find things in the classroom that start with the “mmm” sound?); help children become more aware of their surroundings and encourages them to willingly participate in the group activity. Your children will further use educational toys available to their disposal to further develop their communication skills. Additionally our teachers use phonetic approach to develop and prime reading and writing skills.
