About our Nursery:

The Nursery class is led by a Teacher and two Early Years Assistants. Children are encouraged to participate in a range of stimulating, fun learning activities to prepare them for school including phonics, sounds time, pencil control, group activities and much much more. Our Nursery Class ensures that every child gains the most from their nursery experience and helps make their journey into reception an easy and happy one.

Our nursery class is a teacher-led environment in a bright open-plan space aimed at children aged 3-4. The nursery class room is set up for learning through play, with a role play, small world toys, story corner, block play, mark making, number area, investigation station, creative area and a mud kitchen amongst others.

Autumn Term

We would like to welcome all our new friends and families to our first term in Nursery. We will be spending lots of time this term getting to know each other, making friends and exploring our wonderful nursery environment. 

In our Autumn term we will be reading lots of new books including 'The Colour Monster', which helps us to identify and understand the different emotions we may feel, and our No Outsiders stories, 'Blue Chameleon' and 'The Smeds and the Smoos'.

We will also begin to look at the changes that are occurring in the natural environment around us as the season changes to Autumn. We will be looking at how the weather changes and how this effects different plants and animals. We will be reading the stories 'Leaf Man', 'It was a cold dark night' and 'We're going on a leaf hunt'. 


Leaf Man (Ala Notable Children's Books) : Ehlert, Lois, Ehlert, Lois: Books      It Was a Cold Dark Night: Band 03/Yellow (Collins Big Cat) : Hopgood, Tim,  Collins Big Cat: Books           We're Going on a Leaf Hunt : Metzger, Steve, Sakamoto, Miki:  Books


Remember to look on Tapestry frequently to see some of the amazing things we are getting up to! We will continue to keep updating Tapestry with any important information as well as any observations we make on your children. Alternatively we would love you to upload anything that your child is doing at home as we love to learn about your child's learning journey at home.

Phonics Parent Video

Historically in the Autumn term we would welcome you into school to talk about your child’s reading and phonics journey. Sadly, with the current pandemic this is not something that we are able to do .We tried a zoom session last year but understand how difficult this can be with work and childcare commitments as well as the dreaded technical issues that frequently arise! This year we have tried something a bit different. The staff from Nursery, Reception and Year One have come together to make a video for you. Please don’t expect any wonderful acting or photography but we are hoping that this makes your child’s phonic journey a little bit clearer to you. Please find the link below so that you can watch it in your leisure.
