Our nursery is a unique setting as it is led and run by teachers. Our nursery is always a vibrant and exciting place in which children can learn. This gives the children a fantastic start and introduction to school life. Our nursery is open from 9am till 3pm. The children are part of the school; they use the hall and the outside areas around the school in their learning.
Outdoor play and continous provision are instrumental to nursery children’s development. Both aspects of which are used and planned for fully each week. Don’t just take our word for it; this is what current parents have to say:

“I am so happy with how my son is doing at Nursery; he has come on so much particularly with phonics, writing and maths.”
“He absolutely loves Nursery. He is so excited to come every day and asks me if he can go for longer!”
“She looks forward to Nursery every day and cannot wait to come in.”
“She is very settled at Nursery and enjoys talking about her experiences at home.”
“Since starting at Nursery he has come on in leaps and bounds and we couldn’t be more pleased with his progress.”

We have been very busy in Nursery! We have been enjoying the sunshine outside as part of our Outdoor Learning. We found things to touch up high and down low, as well as looking for colours in natural objects. We then took part in a Maths activity to find grass, flowers and leaves to stick onto our twigs.

We were lucky enough to have Legion the firefighter come to visit us! We listened carefully as he told us all about his job and then we asked questions such as ‘How would you get a cat out of a tree?’ and ‘Have you ever saved anyone from under the water’.  He let us try on his uniform and even Mrs Dunnell and Mrs Stanley had a go at trying on the outfit...Mrs Dunnell said the boots were very heavy to wear.

Our cubbyhole activity this week has been sticking pom-poms onto a sticky ceiling. We know that this helps to build up our shoulder strength, which is good for our Kinetic Letters writing.
