Evans (Nursery)

Welcome to Evans Class!


Our Nursery teacher is Mrs Farrow, she is assisted by Mrs West.

We believe that the early years are vital in setting the foundations for life.


The Early Years Foundation Stage at Aston and Cote Primary School promotes excellence in early education, enabling all children to achieve success in their early years. We aim to develop creative, imaginative and independent lifelong learners through a play-based approach. We pride ourselves on catering for the individual needs of all our children and carefully plan play based learning opportunities through observing the children’s interests. Our early years practitioners are skilled in facilitating a variety of learning opportunities through accurate intervention, effective questioning and supportive scaffolding to ensure learning opportunities are continuously purposeful.


Phonics teaching is designed to develop children’s listening, vocabulary and speaking skills. Throughout early phonics children will have the opportunity to have fun with sounds, listen carefully, and learn new songs and rhymes. They will begin to explore aspects such as rhythm and rhyme, alliteration and oral blending and segmenting. This approach lays the foundation for

Read Write Inc. Phonics, which the children start in their last term of Nursery. 

It supports their literacy progress, including developing their language through story times and teaching phonics. Every day, children learn new sounds, and review previous sounds and words. 

The speed at which children read the sounds makes the biggest difference to their reading of words. Once they can blend, they read words containing the sounds they know in matched sound-blending books.

further phonics work and will help to prepare children as they begin to learn to read and write.

We believe in the importance of reading daily in class and encourage parents or family members to read regularly at home. Children in Evans Class love stories and it is a great way to spend some time together.
