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 growing up and thinking about the skills we learn as we get older. We will be welcoming new friends this term too. We will continue our focus on Personal, Social and Emotional Development and Communication and Language skills but also improve our Understanding of the World by learning what happens to plants and animals as they grow and change in spring time. We will be using maths skills to measure ourselves and the plants that grow. We have also got a new role-play area : a Florist Shop where we can use our maths skills to buy flowers.
