Welcome to our Nursery!
This term we will be learning all about growing things. We learn through experimenting, exploring and being imaginative. A lot of our learning will take place outside in our fabulous garden where we can take risks safely, learn to persevere and problem solve. The most important part of our day is growing our friendships and relationships with our peers and the grown ups. We will spend a lot of time talking and growing our language skills so we are confident communicators with an extensive vocabulary, ready to learn to read and write.
Please have a look at our Nursery page to see how and what we have been learning about. Our focus as always is building our skills in speaking and listening, building relationships and our physical health. A lot of our activities are aimed at growing our physical strength so we will be ready to write well in the future.
All the children are now settled and happy, the Nursery is buzzing inside and out with lots of enthusiastic learning happening. Our listening skills are growing daily and we love listening to stories and talking about them.
The nursery staff are:
Mrs Jones (Teacher),
Mrs Kneckles (Nursery Nurse)
Ms Hep (Nursery Nurse)
During this challenging time, we wanted to provide you with details of websites that can be accessed at home to support children’s learning and development specifically for the early years. Please find a list of suggested websites below. We hope you find this information useful and enjoy using these sites to enhance your child’s learning experiences at home!
Please do remember to review the sites ahead of time so that you are able to help your children find the best resources available within the sites. Some offer a great number of games, songs, stories, videos etc. so it is important to know the site well in order to support and develop your child’s learning.

PE days are on Monday for our afternoon children and Wednesday for the morning session. Please make sure the children are wearing socks and not tights. Thank you.
These should be brought into school on Mondays and Fridays so we can change the books. Please read to your child every day, the more story language they hear the better their speech will be, and this impacts on all their learning. If you struggle with reading the stories in English, please take a look at the Nursery page where you will find a lot of stories read by Mrs Jones. However the best part of story sharing is being together and having time together so please make sure you give your child those special moments.,
