Welcome to Nursery!

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)




Welcome to Autumn in Nursery.... 

Autumn 2


This half term we are going to be learning all about rhyming. We are going to read; Each Peach Pear Plum and play a game of I spy, just like the characters in the story. We are hoping to have a visit from our local Police team, who will tell us how to stay safe, as well as a special visit to see Santa in December.
