Nursery

Welcome to Nursery!

 

Our Nursery Teacher is Miss Kendall and our Nursery TA Mr Hryniszak and Kirsty, Danielle and Mrs Carlyon also help us in Nursery. Please feel free to catch us at drop off or collection if you have any worries or concerns, we're always here to listen!

 

Nursery sessions run from 8:45-11:45 AM and 12:15-3:15 PM

 

Article 28

Nursery is lots of fun, we spend time exploring both indoors and outdoors (regardless of the weather) to help us develop our learning. We spend time practicing skills that we learn in carpet time and are given opportunities to practice these skills while we play. Nursery can often be very messy, so we always wear our uniform of a red jumper, black or grey trousers, white polo top and black shoes- no laces please because we try and dress ourselves and laces are too tricky. We also wear a PE kit as we are lucky enough to have PE in the hall once a week. PE kits can be purchased from the school office, or children can wear; black or navy PE shorts, red t-shirt and black plimsolls. (Please label all of your children's clothes to prevent them going missing)
