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; Communication and Language; Physical Development; Literacy; Maths; Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

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.​  Please support us in this matter. 
  • Please send your child into school with a water bottle filled only with plain water please. 


Hopefully, you are now signed up to tapestry. If you are then you will be able to see what your child gets up to in nursery. You can upload comments and you can also upload your own pictures of things that you have done as a family. If you are not signed up then just ask and we can get you a letter. 


Welcome back to nursery. Hope you had a lovely half term break and were able to celebrate halloween safely with your family.  Hopefully by now the children have had lots of time to make new friends and they are settled into nursery routines well. During the second half term the children will continue to establish their friendships and they will continue to follow the rules and routines.  We will start the second half term off by learning about Diwali, the Hindu festival of light. We will read and discuss some information on this as well as doing some art work. We will also learn about firework safety, make some chocolate apples and create some glittery firework pictures. As the half term progresses we will be reading 'We're going on a Bear Hunt' and doing some related activities. Towards the end of the half term, we will of course be doing some Christmas activities and discussing what we do as families to celebrate Christmas at home. 



Monday 1st November - return to school

Friday 19th November - Children in Need (Pyjama day)

During the second half of the Autumn term we will continue to do PE in the hall. We will continue to do a mixture of sticky kids, games and small apparatus. If we get any nice weather, then we will go outside on the trim trail or the tyres. We ask that the children have a pair of black PE pumps that can be kept in school. Please send these into school if you haven't done so already. Please make sure your child's pumps are clearly labelled with their name.  

We will also get to play outdoors where the children can climb on the climbing frames, use the slide, explore the musical instruments, push prams, ride on bikes and much more. 

Please make sure you send a pair of wellies into school as we will need these if the weather is very wet. Please make sure they are clearly labelled with your child's name.
