Welcome to Nursery
We aim to provide a safe and happy environment for all children, offering opportunities to meet the needs of each individual child.
Your child will be learning skills, acquiring new knowledge and understanding through the seven areas of Learning and Development as outlined in the EYFS framework.
Children should mostly develop the three prime areas first.
- Personal, Social and Emotional Developmen
- Physical Development
- Communication and Language.
These prime areas are those most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in four specific areas.
- Understanding the world
- Expressive arts and design

Reminders If your child is absent could parents please write in their child’s white books as well as ringing the school. All children need to have coats, hats, bags and clothes labelled clearly. Could all children please have a named hat and water bottle every day.
Voluntary fund We kindly ask parents to donate £2 a week to our voluntary fund. This allows us to buy extra resources to help our curriculum.
The PTA has paid for the Nursery playground to have new markings. This will hopefully be completed during the half term holidays.
Your child will have a Key Worker who will follow your child’s unique needs and interests.
Long Term Plan
10/11/2017: Welcome back and hope everyone had a lovely half term. This week we talked about what we did over the half term holiday and looked and talked about fireworks, the children then had fun making firework pictures on black paper by flicking paint on to the paper. We talked about Diwali and the children made Diva lamps out of clay.
20/10/2017: This week the children learnt about Islam. They listened to a parent visitor talking about what being a Muslim is and how they celebrate Eid. The children also enjoyed making leaf collages and leaf rubbings. We counted and sorted acorns, conkers and pine cones. We enjoyed the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’ and talked about the story. We practised our balancing on the trim trail. Our topic for next term is ‘Why do leaves go crispy?’.
06/10/2017: This week the children have been looking at the story of ‘Elmer’. Every group has read the story. We have decorated a large Elmer using different colours, and materials. The children painted, coloured and glued things onto the picture.
29/09/2017: This week all our new children have started and have now settled well and following the nursery routine. We have also started doing small group. The children have been going to the different areas and learning what we can do and learn in each area and learning the routine. Next week we will be looking at ‘Elmer’ and investigating colour. We will be reading the story of ‘Elmer’. Thank you again for your continued cooperation and support during our reconstruction.
15/09/2017: Welcome back, we hope everyone had a lovely summer and good luck to all our children that moved up to Reception. During the summer we have had building work done and have had new toilets built. We have redone our environment with an exciting new area for the children to explore. Since returning we have welcomed and settled in around 28 new children and welcomed our old children back, and have started our 30 hours. As a Nursery we would like to thank our parents and children for their cooperation and continued support as we go through our reconstruction. We are looking forward to our new year ahead.
