  Welcome to Lower Foundation Nursery

Meet the team: our Nursery teacher is Mrs Jenkins, who this year is supported by nursery nurse Miss Jowsey (who is covering Mrs. Hill's maternity leave).

Things that may be of interest to Parents/ Carers:

There has been a few changes over the summer, Mrs Hill welcomed her new baby, Leo Dennis Hill, into this strange world in August. Mum and baby are doing fine. Miss Jowsey is covering Mrs Hill's maternity leave for this school year and she has fitted in very well. 


We are now all ready for christmas in our Nursery. We have a Winter Wonderland, a christmas cracker counting table, polar express station, nativity dress up area and many other exciting activities for the children.


Here is a little update of baby Leo. Mrs hill and Leo are doing very well. 



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.



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.


Autumn term: Superheroes/Diwali/Christmas           Spring term: Wild things                 Summer term: Traditional tales


Autumn term.

We have had an amazing half term regardless of the pandemic going on. We have had safety measures in place but still had lots of fun.

We thought it would be a good idea to show you our inside environment due to parents not being allowed in. 


We have been very busy and here is what we have been doing


Winter Wonderland- Here we have numbers all around for the children to count, a card writing station and a wrapping station 

Polar express- We have a polar express station which helps the children re tell stories and understand the world with weather, trains and animals

Funky fingers- We have christmas trees for the children to decorate, improving their fine motor skills

Matching numerals- Here the children can match the right amount of crackers to the correct number

Nativity scene- Here we have the nativity scene, the children are able to show the characters of the christmas story

Nativity dress up- Here the children are able to dress up as the characters from the christmas story



Welcome, new starters. We have uploaded a video for you to see inside our nursery during these strange times. Looking forward to seeing you all in January. We will shortly be adding some photos of nursery at Christmas.

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.
