Learning to live and living to learn


Welcome to Nursery



Welcome to Nursery where you will find fantastic young explorers who enjoy learning through play inside and outside in our calm and purposeful environment. We are learning independence and developing a "have a go" attitude at the beginning of our school journey.


We are supported daily by our nursery teacher Mrs Parkinson who is assisted by:

Mrs Tunks (Mon-Wed) Nursery Nurse

Mrs Nesbitt (Mon-Wed) Teaching Assistant

Mrs Francis (Wed-Fri) 1:1 support

Mrs Baum (Thurs-Fri) Nursery Nurse

We also go to Forest School with Mrs Potts and Mrs Harrison.


A Day in Nursery


Our day starts at 8.45 when we self-register using our name labels and post these in our colourful box. We have carpet time to welcome everyone, sing songs, count and talk about the weather and our morning so far! We are then free to explore until tidy-up time at 10.50. This is followed by story time on the carpet then a drink and a healthy snack. To end our busy morning, we settle down on the carpet for a short session before saying goodbye. We will start the first stages of phonics and will also learn a new number each week. Our session finishes at 11.45 so that we can have a rest after a busy morning. We also enjoy PE on Mondays in the hall and Forest School on Tuesdays. Nursery is full of amazing children who are learning to live and living to learn.


Our Topic This Term Is:




We are going to be learning about different types of celebrations such as babies being born, birthdays and weddings. We have got a new role-play area : a Fancy Dress Shop where we can use our imagination. We will also be preparing for transitions this term as children get ready for Reception whilst others meet new friends.
