Early Years

Welcome to Yanwath Primary School Nursery and Early Years unit!

Here at Yanwath Nursery, we follow a child-led approach and the children are very much in charge of their learning. As a staff, we have particular objectives to cover each week but we do this through fun and engaging activities that the children may lead. For example, one of our children came in one morning and began making a pirate boat. This led on to the children creating pirate hats, hooks and eye patches, reading different pirate themed books and linking their literacy and maths with this.

Before you go, we want you to tell you about one of our favourite parts of the Early Years unit…OUR GARDEN! The staff worked hard over the summer of 2021 to create a vibrant and engaging outdoor area for the children to enjoy. As a school, we value the importance of the outdoors and its effect on our mental health. Therefore, we give the children access to the outdoor space as much as possible and they love getting to experiment in the mud kitchen or be creative in the role play areas.
