We are keen for parents to support the children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help with this we produce Topic Overviews for each term outlining our main topics.

Nursery Summer1 2021
The children in nursery have settled back very well. They are enjoying being with their friends and our new children have adapted very quickly to being at nursery.
Over the last few weeks, they have been enjoying time in our garden – climbing and balancing, digging in the bark, playing in the mud kitchen, exploring ice and planting seeds in our nature garden.
Children have enjoyed exploring paints to mix colours, snipping with scissors, making models and mark making on our writing wall.
They have been interested in building and have used shapes to make their own designs in the garden.
Autumn Term 2020
Children in nursery have been settling in well and are starting to make new friends and become familiar with their new setting.
They have been enjoying being outside in the nursery garden and we have seen plenty of Responsible Rhinos as the children take part in our autumn activities.
