Welcome to Nursery!  We have two classes – Red Apples come in the morning and their friends in Green Apples come in the afternoon.  Our Nursery Teacher is Mr Brown who is supported by two Nursery Nurses, Mrs O’Connor and Mrs Patel. In addition, Mrs Parkington-Camden and Mrs Ilyas work in Nursery and both of the Reception classes during the week.

In Nursery we have lots of fun learning new skills through a range of different play-based activities and experiences which aim to develop children’s learning in all the areas of the Foundation Stage Curriculum. Children have access to indoor and outdoor continuous provision which includes sand, water, ICT, music, phonics, books, mathematics, mark-making, small world, creative, construction and role play. We try to ensure that all areas of continuous provision are focused on each child’s individual needs, interests and abilities.

We may also enhance these learning experiences by inviting visitors to nursery to talk about the topic we are learning about or by visiting new places like the farm. There is an opportunity during each session to learn independently, in key worker groups and as a whole class. 

Whilst our nursery environment encourages children to make their own choices regarding the activities on offer, members of staff are on hand to provide help, guidance and educational support where appropriate.

Thank you for visiting our page.

Regards

Mr Brown, Mrs O’Connor and Mrs Patel.

 

Autumn Term

Here are some photos of our Nursery children enjoying their outdoor continuous provision.

Autumn 2

One of our favourite stories in Nursery is Owl Babies. In November we were very excited when we had the opportunity to see some real owls when they visited our school. Not only did we learn some useful information about owls, but we also held them on one of our hands. We had to stand very still and quietly when we were holding the owl so that we didn’t frighten it.

Spring term

In February this year the Nursery children re-located to the hall for two weeks while building work was taking place in Nursery. The refurbishment work involved putting in new flooring, carpet, toilets and sinks. We also bought brand new furniture and resources, and the classroom was given a new coat of paint. As a result our ‘new’ Nursery looks wonderful. Staff, and especially children, are going to work hard to keep it looking smart and tidy!  

Summer - Farm Visit

This May all of the children in Nursery visited St Leonard’s Farm in Esholt. We had an action packed day that involved seeing lots of different farm animals, playing in the Fun barn, stroking some of the smaller animals, and having a special picnic lunch outside. It really was a day to remember. Here are some photos that were taken during our visit.

Reading every Wednesday -  Come and join us!

Every Wednesday parents and carers are welcome to come into Nursery at the start of the session to share a book with their child. Reading every day with your child is a simple but highly effective way to develop their early literacy skills, as well as a love of books and stories. Mums or dads are equally welcome. We’d love you to join us – the more, the merrier!

One Britain One Nation

On June 23rd Nursery joined the rest of the school in celebrating One Britain One Nation day. The children learned about British Values and dressed in clothes that were red, white or blue. They made Union Jack wrist bands and bunting, and had a special party at the end of the session where they put some of their British Values to the test by being kind, polite and respectful to each other.
