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 super, colourful 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 supported by:

Mrs Tunks (Mon-Wed) Nursery Nurse

Mrs Nesbitt (Mon-Wed) Teaching Assistant

Mrs Baum (Thurs-Fri) Nursery Nurse

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

Amongst our choice of things to discover are:


  • Indoor small world toys; malleable area; home corner; arts and crafts; water play; role-play; books; writing; construction and maths areas.
  • Opportunities to use our imagination through singing, dancing and listening to music in our lovely carpeted area.
  • Outdoor mud kitchen, sand pit, water play, climbing frame, stage and ball pit.
  • Trikes, scooters and bikes to ride on our track.
  • Outdoor activities such as gardening, mark-making on easels or clipboards, reading or playing musical instruments.

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 discuss the weather! 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 Forest School on Tuesdays and PE on Mondays in the hall. Nursery is full of amazing children who are learning to live and living to learn.


Our Topic This Term Is:


Nursery Rhyme Time


We are going to be learning lots of nursery rhymes and discovering how fun they can be by reading, singing and acting them out together. We will continue our focus on personal, social and emotional development and communication and language skills as we welcome new children this term. We have also got a new role-play area : Nursery Rhyme Bakery.
