Welcome to the Nursery
Hello! Olá! Namaste! Czesc! Namaskaram! Ciao!
We have not one but three classroom areas which (in the words of Ofsted) are "well resourced, bright and stimulating": our indoor classroom, our outdoor classroom and our garden area. In addition we have access to the school's field and hall where we have lots of fun playing games, doing dance, drama or gymnastics. Once a week, Mr Bromley teaches PE for us.
Mrs Armstrong is the nursery teacher and Mrs Ayley is the Senior Early Years Educator. We work hard, in partnership with parents, to make sure that every child feels happy and safe in nursery; then they are ready to learn!
All nursery learning takes place through play-based activities, sometimes adult led and sometimes child-initiated. The activities are based on the needs and interests of each child and planned using the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Each week we have a special theme or story- you can find out more in our weekly newsletter ( see documents below). Recent photos can also be viewed in the documents below.
Summer term How the year has flown; hopefully the sun will shine and we will have lots of learning linked to the better weather with a topic on mini-beasts. We will be reading stories such as “The very hungry caterpillar”, “What the ladybird heard” and “Snail trail”, finding and observing mini-beasts, counting legs, wings and spots, making spiral and symmetrical patterns and much, much more. In RE we will be learning about Pentecost and then different celebrations, in particular weddings. As part of this topic we will be visiting St Peter’s Church and asking parents to send in wedding photos (of their wedding or a wedding they have attended) and perhaps come into Nursery to talk about wedding traditions!
