Welcome to Nursery
The Nursery team are:
The Nursery page will regularly be updated with useful information and photographs. If there is anything that you would like to be included on our web page, please let us know.
Session times - 8.45 am - 11.45 am
Please ensure your child arrives on time and you are at the gate in good time to pick them up.
When your child comes into Nursery we have our daily finger gym - this helps improve fine motor control and helps strengthen the muscles to help them become good writers.
After registration and a small group activity, the children will be able to explore our indoor/outdoor continuous provision. The children will be supported and challenged as they play. The continuous provision reflects the children's interests and is constantly changing to in line with their changing needs.
We then have snack together. This is a time for adults and children to talk together and learn about each other. We love this time as it really helps us get to know the children.
After snack time, we gather in small groups for fun activities, songs and stories. It is then time for the children to go home and tell their adults what that they have done.
The children will spend time getting to know their new class friends and exploring the Nursery. The children will spend time exploring what makes them special. It is important that we provide a curriculum based on the children's interests so we will be spending lots of time getting to know the children and what they enjoy.

Before Christmas, the children introduced us to the world of the PJ Masks. We watched a few episodes together and the children were hugely animated and told us about the characters and their super powers. Other children told us about their favourite superheroes.
In the early years we are responsive to children's interests so naturally we wanted to explore this topic.
The children will be exploring the world of superheroes though role play, stories, small world play etc.
We also want to help the children find their inner superhero - what makes them special?
Watch out for the latest photographs...
Growing and Easter
The children loved going on a spring walk and seeing the wonders of the new life around them. They wanted to plant their own seeds so we have been exploring growing and new life.
The children loved the story of 'Jack and the Beanstalk'. the children have enjoyed telling the story using the story props. We also had a visit from Jack and the Giant and they left us some presents!
The children all have their own interests and have decided on the themes for their role play areas. In the EYFS, we embrace the children's interests and find that the children learn better when they lead the way.
Café Role Play
The children turned the home corner into a café. They were making food for their friends and writing menus.
The children wanted to be police men and women. We are in the process of developing their interests and enhancing their play.
Some of the children spent an afternoon fixing the bikes and cars. We are in the process of developing their interests and enhancing their play.
Before the holidays, the children were busy finding creatures in our outdoor area. There had been a lot of rain and they were lurking under rocks and logs. Over their 2 week break, the children have been set a task to see what creatures they can find at the bottom of their garden. When they come back we will go on minibeast hunts and learn more about the creatures we find. We will also be having some very special visitors...
Internet Safety Day
The children told us what they enjoy doing on their tablets - watching programmes, playing games, taking photographs and looking at videos on YouTube.
Through the story of Smartie the Penguin, we learnt how to be safe online. We learnt a song to help us remember the important message - 'If you are worried about anything you see online - tell somebody!'
Before you click, click, click...
You need to think, think, think...
And tell somebody!
Here is some information to help you talk to your child about internet safety.
Fundamental British Values
The fundamental British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs are already implicitly embedded in the 2014 Early Years Foundation Stage.
In the Nursery we strive to set the foundations of fundamental British values in a way that is relevant to their age and stage of development.
