Luston Primary retained our GOOD status!
"From the start, there is a well-resourced approach to teaching reading. Beginning in the Nursery, adults provide a language-rich environment. Staff share songs and rhymes that get children excited about the rhythm and patterns of language. Staff also teach children about the importance of careful speaking and listening. This helps prepare them well for when they start formal phonics in Reception. ".

Our Busy Day
Read Write Inc
At Luston nursery, we use a phonics and reading programme called Read Write Inc (RWI). The Read Write Inc. programme, developed by Ruth Miskin, provides a whole-school approach to teaching literacy that creates fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. We want to develop the skills children need to learn to read, as well as promoting a love for books and a love for reading.

Safari park visit
All of the pre-school children and nursery staff really enjoyed our trip to the safari park. We loved looking at all the different animals but especially enjoyed visiting the dinosaurs and digging for fossils.
It was a great way to finish our journey together before they all move on to reception. What great memories we have made together.

Here at Luston Nursery we believe parental involvement to be extremely important. It helps us extend our teaching to outside of the setting, it creates a positive experience for children and helps children perform better when they are in the setting. Parental involvement improves the children's achievements, self-esteem, and behaviour. It also helps us to build strong, positive relationships between parents and staff within the setting.
