Welcome To Duckling

Welcome to Duckling Class!

Duckling is Corpus’ Nursery Class in the Foundation Stage – our youngest pupils.

In Nursery the children learn through play. Our classroom and outdoor area are designed so that the children can access their own resources and take their learning in their own direction. Throughout the year we will change and adapt the children’s environment to suit their individual needs.

Class Teacher: Mrs Broadgate

HLTA: Mrs Mundy and Miss Rogers

Teaching Assistants: Miss Browne and Miss Chauhan

Floppy's Phonics 

We follow Floppy's Phonics scheme in school. At the moment we are working on phase 1 picture books.
The lessons look at comprehension skills whilst weaving through sounds we can hear around us, such as voice sounds and environmental sounds.
This helps the children to tune into sounds as a whole and prepares them for letter sounds. 


Thank you to all the parents who have paid their £1 EYFS fund.
This weekly donation enables us to source valuable resources for your children to use at nursery. 

Supporting language at home 

Before your child can learn to read and write they need to be able to speak clearly and confidently. Please encourage them to use full sentences at all times, to enhance their understanding and speaking skills. 
Great ways you can help at home: 
  • Singing nursery rhymes 
  • Reading books together
  • Let your child make up their own story using pictures 
  • Talk to your child about what they can see/ hear/ smell/ touch when you are out and about 
  • Paint, draw and create- using their imagination is a great way to bring out their language skills 
  • Play! Children learn best during play, give them memorable experiences such as baking, trips out to the park or local library
