We have 2 "altogether" times in a day. This allows all children who come to nursery that day to sit together in a group at least once in the day. Our altogether time consists of singing, a story, playing a group game or doing a physical exercise together. Before we sit down to have our altogether time, we sing a special song to get everyone's attention. The link for this song is below.

Key Groups

 

Within the 2s Room we have four Key Groups. Each Group has a Keyworker who is responsible for documenting the learning of the children within their group.

 

The Keyworkers in the 2s room are:

  • Julia Marshall
