Welcome to Nursery

In Nursery there are two members of staff. Mrs C Gibson is the class teacher and Mrs Tracey Last is the teaching assistant. We have split the children into key worker groups but the teacher has the overall responsibilty for assessments and reporting to parents. In Nursery we follow the Foundation Stage curriculum, which is made up of seven areas of learning. These are Personal, Social and Emotional Development (Making Relationships, Self-confidence and Self-awareness and Managing Feelings and Behaviour); Communication and Language (Listening and Attention, Understanding and Speaking); Physical Development (Moving and Handling and Health and Self-care); Literacy (Reading and Writing); Maths (Number and Shape, Space and Measure); Understanding the World (People and Communities, The World and Thechnology) and Expressive Arts and Design (Being Imaginative and Exploring using media and materials). 

All aspects of teaching and learning cover the seven areas of the Early Years curriculum. We teach through stories, topics and other subject areas such as speech and language groups, listeningand attention groups and phase 1 phonics. Phase 1 phonics concentrates on environmental sounds, musical instruments and their different sounds, syllables in words and robot talk. Activities to support this include listening walks, sound lotto games, investigatimg musical instruments, clapping syllables in words and talking like a robot. 




  • Our nursery sessions are Monday to Friday from 08:55 to 11:55. 
  • Snack is 25p per day or £1.25 for the full week. Please send exact money in an envelope with your child's name on.
  • PE sessions are on a Wednesday. The children only need black pumps, which can be left in school.
  • The children will be given a library book and a nursery rhyme to share with you at home. Please find the time to read the book and practice the nursery rhyme with your child. Encourage your child to talk about what is happening in the pictures in their book. Books will be changed in nursery on  Monday. If your child does not have a school book bag, they can be purchased from the school office.  
  • Please make sure all of your child's clothes and belongings are named.
  • Please, please, please do not allow your child to bring toys into nursery. They can get very upset when they get broken or lost.​ Toys are still making their way into class and the children are getting upset when told they are not allowed them. Please support us in this matter. 
  • Please send your child into school with a water bottle filled only with plain water please. 

letters and curriculum overview


Welcome back to nursery after the half term break. Hope you had a nice time and were able to get out and do some nice things with family and friends. I can't believe we are in the last half term of the year!!

The gates/doors will be open at 08:45 and the children will enter nursery through the building room (the door that they used before Easter). The gates/doors will be open at 11:45 am for home time. We are still asking that you wear masks when on school premises and that only one adult drops off/picks up. 

During this half term we will be reading a new story called 'Clem and Crab' This story will form the basis of our work in class as well as other related stories, such as 'The train journey' and 'Clean it up' 

We will be talking about the beach and other holiday destinations as well as discussing how we can look after our planet. 

We will continue with our Phase 1 phonics. We will do some more work on rhyme, alliteration and syllables. These ganes are still available on phonics play. The username is 'Jan21' and the password is 'home'. We will 

During continuous provision we will be doing activities based around the beach, holidys and keeping our planet clean.  We will also continue to play with the playdough, consolidate numbers 1-5, investigate numbers 6-10 in more detail, sort different objects, play on the class computers and take part in sharing and turn taking games.  

We might also get to do some group work with Mrs Oakes, our speech and language therapist, ready for moving into reception class in September.

During the Summer Term we will contoinue to use some of  the small apparatus as well as moving onto the dance and gymnastic activities. 

Please make sure your child has a named pair of black PE pumps in school.  We will let you know when these are too small for your child. 

Playing outdoors is great fun, especially climbing, playing with the musical instruments, pushing prams and riding bikes.
