In Nursery we are all SUPER STARS who learn through our play! School is a fun place to be and our teachers like to find out about what we are interested in. We learn about pirates, dinosaurs, superheroes, princesses and space and there is always something exciting to see or do!
We love to explore and investigate in the water, sand and outdoor area. Lots of us like to build brilliant structures and models in the construction area or workshop. Our creative area is always a busy place to be with paintings and play dough creations being made. Some of us like to spend time in the home corner making imaginative food and drinks for each other and our teachers! The reading area is the quiet place in our classroom where we can choose to read a book or relax.
Our ‘Listening Song’ helps us to learn to become good listeners at carpet time. We especially look forward to taking part in all the ‘Funky Fingers’ and ‘Squiggle’ sessions using shaving foam, dough and hair gel to build up our writing muscles and develop our fine motor grip and control.
The Nursery Team
We are delighted invite all of our Nursery parents/guardians to use the new Easy Peasy smartphone app trial . This app is designed to improve early child development. Over the next 20 weeks you will be sent fun, simple game ideas to your mobile phone that you can play at home with your child. These games are designed to build your child’s language and communication skills, self-control, resilience and concentration. After playing each game with your child you can leave a comment and read the comments of other parents/guardians in our Nursery ‘pod’.

Amazing Ice Investigations
After learning about Winter the children worked together to create their own ice. They added various objects, glitter and sequins into their pot and then filled it with water. The children predicted what they thought would happen when the pots were put into the freezer. Great fun was had by everyone on discovering the changes that had taken place!
I am proud of all of the fabulous Nursery children who took part in our Early Years performance of ‘First Nativity’. The children were dressed as angels and sang their song ‘One bright halo’ brilliantly in front of an audience of family and friends.
Our Art Week focus was on the artist Wassily Kandinsky. All the children painted their own circle art for our class masterpiece.
Our Autumn Walk was a fun way to begin to find out about the changing seasons. We collected lots of leaves and twigs and Mrs Rogerson brought lots of conkers into school to count.
All of our Nursery children got to celebrate our class puppet’s birthday by bringing in their own favourite toy.
