Rosen Class Nursery (2 y/o)
Welcome to Rosen Class!
Rosen room is home to the youngest children in St Marys. We pride ourselves on using their interests to provide engaging and exciting experiences in a stimulating environment. This creates a space for the children to learn through play.

Our room is set out to engage children and allow them to experience different activities. As well as the classroom the children enjoy their time in the garden, this helps to extend their knowledge and learning.
As much as we help and support children in their daily routine we also promote and allow independence. We set out our environment to give children opportunities to select their own resource they would like to play with.

Children need many opportunities to develop their gross motor skills and fine motor skills.
Gross motor skill involves the large muscles in our bodies that help us to sit, walk, run, climb and jump. In nursery we encourage the children to take part in our physical activities, these include music and movement, climbing and sliding down the climbing frame, crawling through the tunnels and catching and throwing a large ball.
Fine motor skills involves muscles that help control our hands, fingers, lips, tongue and eyes. In nursery the children have opportunities to build their muscles by playing with playdough, pincher grasps (tweezers), threading and lacing, pealing sticker and puzzles. These activities help children to develop the muscles in their finger, which help develop their pre-writing skills.
