Thank you for taking a look at our nursery pages. We hope you enjoy seeing what the children have been learning.

These pages contain important information about nursery life, such as termly topic information and photos of nursery staff so you can put a face to our names. We have also included some photos of the children’s learning.

We are keen for parents and carers to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help you do this, we produce a termly information sheet, outlining our main topics and giving suggestion for how you might follow up at home.

We also hold half-termly events when parents and carers are invited into the nursery to share activities with their children. These events will be advertised on the website.

We look forward to getting to know your child and your family. Please do come and talk to us if you have any queries.

New Term

Nursery has welcomed new children this term. We are very pleased that they are all settling so well and have already started to make new friends.

In addition to settling in, the children have enjoyed learning inspired by our theme of Rainbows and have been busy singing the Rainbow song, dancing with scarves, painting rainbows on large paper and the whiteboard, playing rainbow games and making a rainbow fruit salad!



Autumn Term B

Children in nursery have enjoyed learning about a range of themes this half term. We have been learning the story of the Little Red Hen and enjoyed performing a Christmas themed Little Red Hen story that the children had written for their families at our Celebration. The children explored flour and enjoyed making their own play dough and role play bread. We have learnt about Diwali and Bonfire night and enjoyed a visit from a parent who talked to us about Hanukah celebrations. We have enjoyed our Nature Garden and have enjoyed planting bulbs and raking and sweeping the autumn leaves. Children enjoyed making and decorating cakes and sharing them with families at our Christmas celebration.



Autumn Term A

Children in nursery have been settling in well and enjoying both our indoor and outdoor areas. They have enjoyed exploring our garden and nature garden and recently went on a walk on the school field to look for signs of autumn. They have been painting, printing, riding bikes and scooters and enjoying a wide range of cooking in our mud kitchen. We marked the end of half term with our Books and Biscuits session for parents. Children enjoyed sharing books and eating the biscuits they had baked for the occasion.
