All the staff in Nursery would like to say what a pleasure it has been to get to know the children. They have been AMAZING in the way that they have settled into our Nursery. Just a couple of reminders:

Please please name everything.... snack pots, drinks bottles, lunch bags - sometimes names wear off over time so keep checking.

All clothing and footwear including coats and waterproof trousers.

Thank you. Enjoy half term holiday and see you back on Tuesday 3rd November!

Colours and Patterns with Elmer

We had fun learning all about colours and patterns with Elmer last week.

We got messy making a 3D model of him using empty milk bottles, tissue paper and runny glue. We think they look great. We triend to remember all the names of the colours on our Elmer.


We enjoyed exploring, naming and then drawing patterns on our own elephant mask for an elephant parade.


We enjoyed lots of colur games too and a colour hunt around the classroom..


We enjoyed using lots of colours in our mark making activities. Our rainbow names have made a lovely display in the classroom.


Our Favourite Stories

User Rating:  / 1

Hi All,

We had a wonderful week last week sharing our favourite stories from home and trying to read through them all. We did lots of talking about the characters and our favourite parts in the story. We also enjoyed Nursery's favourite story The Gruffalo! We made lots of Gruffalo crafts, counted forest treasures and helped Mrs Hampson cook Gruffalo crumble. We used peaches for orange eyes, apples for terrible tusks and blueberries for prickles all down his back. Mrs Cowdry took us on a Gruffalo hunt we found him hiding in our play ground.

Reminders ~label everything! Including forest school clothes.

NB ~Parent consultation letter being sent home shortly please return promptly for a phonecall slot.

Welcome All to our Nursery Blog page.

We will post a new blog page about every two weeks. Please enjoy the photos with your child as it provides a great opportunity to talk about Nursery developing communication and language skills. We might not be able to put a photo of every child every post.

Our first post shows our first week in Nursery settling in and learning our new routines; putting our bags and bottles away, snack and lunch times, practising our fire drill and learning independent bathroom routines. They have been brillant, we are so proud of them.!


We have aslo had lots of fun enjoying the Nursery room and play grounds and getting to know our new friends and teachers.

Dear All,

Our fimal blog post for Nursery 2020! We have had a wonderful week clebrating the fun things we do in Nursery. We were superfit on sporty day we enjoyed, dancing, yoga, cross country running and we loved Sports day races. Mr Horne joined in with the hat and sunglasses race..he lost. We loved standing on the podium receiving our GOLD medals. Pirate day was a real hit. We got so excited on our treasure hunt looking for clues and digging for our treasures. We had a cool ice lollie to calm us down. Fancy dress day was lots of fun too. We did lots of role play as our characters and we enjoyed a cinema afternoon with popcorn and treats from our friend Phoebe.

Thank you from all the staff for your amazing support and kind messages. Your children are so lovely and they make us proud every day.,We really are going to miss them. XXX

We all knew this story very well and were great at talking about the life cycle and loved using the proper science words chrysalis and metamorphosis. We compared it to our own life cycle too. We enjoyed all sorts of caterpillar and butterfly crafts. We were very good at countiong fruits and and we loved pretending to be the caterpillar punching holes in paper fruits. We enjoyed making and drawing shapes we know too We visited Abigail's garden to look for butterflies and we loved our fun parachute games.
