Festivities in Nursery

We have been so busy and have done lots of hard work and learnt lots of new skills in the last few months. We have been looking at different fairytale stories. We hope you enjoy looking through our photographs of what we have been up to.

Thanks again,

Our P.E. days are Tuesday a.m. and Wednesday p.m. Please could you make sure your child is wearing shoes that they can manage themselves as we encourage them to take off socks and shoes and put them back on their selves. This is to give them a start for when they have to undress for P.E. in reception class.


Our library days are: Monday a.m. and Thursday p.m. Please share these books with your children and encourage them to talk about the illustrations.



On Tuesday morning and Wednesday afternoon we bake. Baking is 50p a week in order for us to purchase ingredients.

Forest school


On Wednesday nursery children enjoy going to their forest school session and learning outdoors. This starts again in the Summer term.


We try to go out in all weathers and so we would ask you to send a pair of wellingtons, named, for your child to keep at nursery.

Spring term

We are, as always very busy and this half term we are focusing on the topic.... Tell me a story. In nursery we love a good story and have been reading lots of Fairytales, I bet the children will be able to retell them to you too.

We will be focusing on one story each week and having lots of exciting activities linked to each story.

On the last day before the May holidays we will be celebrating the Queens Platinum Jubilee with a picnic with the rest of the school and parents. We have even made up a dance to perform at the picnic to Dancing Queen. We can’t wait to see you there.

We have spent the final week before the May holidays learning lots about the 1970’s era, this is the time that Dancing Queen came out! We have created some old TVs, looked at to shows on in the 1970s, played music on a record player and looked at some old

Dates for your 

27th May Jubilee Pic Nic


We have updated our displays in nursery, due to covid parents haven’t been able to come into nursery to see these displays so we thought we would show your our fantastic work on here.

Our Spring display is flower printing pictures, paper plate collage chicks and symmetrical butterflies. 

Our Maths display is castles in the sky made by using different 2d shapes, we are looking at identifying 2D shapes.

Our Gingerbread Man display is an observational painting of the characters in the Gingerbread Man story. We have been practising how to hold our paintbrush and use colour with a purpose.

Our Literacy display is all about labelling and designing a house. We have looked at the shapes we can see on houses around us.

Outdoor Learning

In nursery we LOVE playing outdoors and we are very fortunate to have a large outdoor area! The outdoors environment offers the opportunity to make sense of the outdoor world around them. The outdoor environment can also help with fine and gross motor skills, all round physical development and improved knowledge and understanding of the world.
