Our topic this half term will be Water. Our roleplay area will be an Ice Cream Palour.


A lot of our learning is outdoors so please ensure your children have appropriate footwear and always bring a rain coat.You also need to apply sun cream at home and bring a sun hat to nursery.
We now have our trim trail and willow nature area. We will observe how this grows and changes over time and encourage the children to water and look after the willow. 


Wednesday is the day when we hold our P.E. session, so our focus on that day is about physical development. The children go to the hall in main school and are encouraged to take off their own shoes, socks and jumpers. It is helpful for your child to practise doing this independently at home. We follow the 'Action Kids' scheme of work. We always start the session with the Action Kids warm up and end the session with the action kids cool down. The children pick up the words and the actions to this very quickly and enjoy joining in!

Baking at Nursery

We bake tasty treats every friday. Please don't forget to pay your baking money every half term. The children will take it in turns to help. They will bring home what they have made at library time.

Special events

We celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with a red, white and blue themed day.

We had various activities decorating buns, making the Union flag, decorating crowns and face painting. 

We gathered together and waved our flags for a very special visitor, 'The Queen'!
Then we had yummy party food and fun games at our street party.


Friday is library day. It is held at 11.15am for the morning children and 3pm for the afternoon children. It gives you the opportunity to come in to nursery and choose a book from the school library sevice with your child to take home and read over the weekend. All books should be returned on the following Monday. This also provides time to speak to the nursery staff if you have any concerns or question about your child or the nursery routine.
