  Welcome to Lower Foundation Nursery

Meet the team: Our EYFS teams is Mrs. Jenkins (reception teacher), who is supported by Mrs Cording and Nursery Nurse Mrs. Hill (Nursery lead) who is supported by Mrs Leeming.


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. 


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

We are, as always very busy and this half term we are focusing on the topic.... Wonderful me. We are focusing on what makes us special how we are all unique. We will also be looking at people in the community who help us. Finally we are investigating different celebrations, such as our birthdays, harvest festival, bonfire night, Diwali and the lead up to Christmas  

December will see our amazing nursery nativity play -our first nativity. Information about dates will be available closer to the show. So get ready to hear your little one singing all the songs at home. You may even recognise some of the tunes.

We have spent the first few weeks at nursery learning all about ourselves, painting paper plate self portraits and and portraits of our families. We measured or hands and feet to see who had the biggest. We have also been investigating the signs of Autumn time.


The authors we will be exploring this term is:

Allan Ahlberg and Janet Ahlberg & Julia Donaldson

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 for children 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.
