Offmore Primary School



It is led by Miss Platt with the support of Mrs Miles, Mrs Palmer,  Mrs Brown and Mrs Jones. 

Offmore Nursery provides an exciting and vibrant learning environment for children from 3 years to 4 years. The Nursery comprises a vibrant indoor learning space, with a playground and a garden area that allows the children to learn and investigate as much outdoors as they do indoors. We go to the Forest twice a week. At the moment it is on Wednesday afternoon and a Thursday morning. 

We also go to PE in the hall to play games and learn new skills such as running, climbing, jumping on a Thursday afternoon. 

Fundamental to our Nursery learning philosophy is the engagement of children with their learning. This system keeps the children central to their topics and activities and enables the staff to continually respond to the thoughts and ideas of our children as they collectively build and develop the very best foundations for learning. 

Personal, social and emotional development is critical to all that we do, so that our children grow into confident children eager to embrace the future learning challenges they will meet.

Learning Powers

The children can earn points for using their learning powers. These include:

Busy Bee power- given for active learning, such as being focused.

Unicorn powers are given for playing and exploring, using a 'can do' approach.

Magnifying powers are given for creating and thinking critically, such as using learning walls independently to further own learning.

Early Reading

In Nursery we also have daily Phonics sessions. We love it when Flump joins us and challenges us to a game. We have to practise our good sitting, good listening and good looking when learning with Flump.  Our activities are based on Phase 1 phonics.

We also have group reading sessions where the children get to share a book with an adult in Nursery. Not only is it a great time for them to enjoy a a book, but we also teach some of the early skills needed to read a book. 

Your child will start Nursery with a reading diary. Every week they get to choose a book to take home and share with you. When at home we would like you to share a story at least 3 times a week and sign in their diary, we would also love a little comment on what you did, maybe their favourite part or what they said.  Those children that read 3 times a week get to move up the solar system in the rocket  and be in the chance to win a prize!
