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.”

What a busy Spring term so far! The children have loved listening to, and re-enacting all the traditional stories. Many of the children bought in their favourite books to talk about. We came to school in pyjamas on World Book Day and listened to favourite stories. Mrs Ward read 2 lovely books to us. Teddy Bears came to nursery for our Teddy Bears picnic and we had jam sandwiches, bear crisps and biscuits!
We have been reading food related stories and doing some cooking. We have made gingerbread men, bread rolls, sausage rolls with crispy cakes and pizzas still to come. The role play cafe has been very busy.
We are practising counting and recognising numbers, trying to write our names and learning phonics through our sound of the week.
