Welcome to Early Years
Welcome to Marsh Green Early Years website, which we hope will give you a flavour of the day to day life of our happy, successful early years setting. At Marsh Green, our ethos is based upon British Values, which promotes strong self -esteem, enjoyment, high expectations of achievement, respect and equality for all. We do this within a caring, vibrant and supportive environment.
Our dedicated early years team are passionate about making each day of your child’s learning journey engaging, supportive and productive, and nurturing every pupil with the skills, knowledge, confidence and resilience to feel they are capable of achieving great things, everyday!
We provide a carefully planned, broad, balanced curriculum, which seeks to develop their academic, physical and emotional development, through play based experiences. There are also many ways to support your child’s learning journey at home, for example by reading with them at least three times a week, counting various items in your house, to develop number skills, supporting your child to write by mark making and encouraging them to write their name in full. Listed below are some useful websites which you can use at home to help your children learn and grow.
Hello Everybody! 31.03.20
Miss Hill here! Although we are not in school at the moment, I hope we are all still having fun and learning at home. I'm sure you are all missing school as much as me.
This week, I have been in school with some children because their mummy and daddy still have to go to work.
We have been having lots of fun doing Joe Wick's workout at 9am! Have you been doing it at home too?
Scarlett WOW'ed me with her reading yesterday, I hope you're all still trying hard to learn your tricky words and read some fantastic books to your family.
Have we been trying any new skills or hobbies? I bought myself a new colouring book and some pencils. What do you think of my colouring? I think you children can colour better than me? Let's see you having a go!
See you soon and miss you all,
Miss Hill x

Smoothie Time! 31.01.20
This week we have been talking about healthy and unhealthy foods. We know that superheroes have to stay fit and healthy with all of their training and what they eat...
