Welcome to Nursery!  We have two classes – Red Apples come in the morning and the children in Green Apples come in the afternoon.  Our Nursery Teacher is Mr Brown who is supported by an Early Years Practitioner, Mrs O’Connor. 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.

World Book Day

In Nursery we celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as our favourite story characters. We did lots of colouring activities based around the story of The Day The Crayons Quit, and we even made a face for Duncan in the story using crayons for his hair!

Summer 1 – Planting and Growing

This half term we have been learning about the things that a seed needs to grow. We read some stories about growing (The Little Red Hen and The Enormous Turnip), and then we had a go at planting some seeds of our own.

We waited patiently and we were very excited when they started to grow into plants! 

Autumn 1 - Outdoor Learning

Here are some photos of the Nursery children enjoying their outdoor provision. A big part of their learning outside involves their physical development (climbing, balancing, kicking or catching a ball, running without bumping into anything, and so on). However, there are always opportunities to access other areas of learning such as writing and mark making, counting, turn taking, problem solving, investigating, constructing and role playing. 

Autumn 2 - Owl Visit

One of our favourite stories in Nursery is Owl Babies. In December 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 1 - PE

Spring 1 – Our PE lessons

This half term we have been lucky to have a sports coach to help us develop our skills in PE. It isn’t just our physical development that benefits from PE. We also need to use our listening, understanding and co-operative skills in each lesson. One of the main skills we have been learning is how to dribble a large ball, and then kick it into the net to try and score a goal!

Spring 1 - An enterprising start to the New Year

As part of their school Enterprise project, all of the children in Nursery made a personalised calendar. In the first week of January we invited parents to come and buy their child’s calendar from the Nursery Calendar Shop. We raised lots of money for the school, and our parents are now the proud owners of an attractive calendar that can take pride of place on their kitchen wall! 

Spring 2

Mum’s The Word

A lot of hard work went into making our Mother’s Day cards this year. Not only did we use our creative skills to design the flower on our card, we also wrote our name inside it, and did lots of speaking about all the things our mums do for us. And don’t worry dads – we promise you’ll have your turn when it’s Father’s Day!


Finger Gym

We have a Finger Gym in Nursery where we do different activities that help to develop our fine motor co-ordination, and to strengthen our fingers so that we can use a pen or pencil effectively. Here are some photos of the Nursery children giving their fingers a work out at the Finger Gym.
