'Change starts with us!'


To launch our anti-bullying week in school, Tuesday 12th November is 'Odd socks day'! Please come to nursery wearing odd socks.


To put this week into context for our youngest children we have been talking to them about how we are all wonderfully different and how we all like different things, but reminding them we all need to work together to keep everyone happy. We have been talking about how we work together as a team in nursery to tidy up and look after our toys. We will continue to explore these ideas through our play this week.


Play games at home which involve turn taking to help your children learn about the importance of sharing.

We remember...


Today we talked to the children about Remembrance Day. We talked about how the poppy flower helps us to remember brave heroes and helps us remember that it is better for us to get on with each other and be kind and helpful. The children enjoyed exploring some activities to make representations of the poppy.



As it was bonfire night earlier this week, we asked our Forest Schools leader, Mrs Steinman, to take the children into the secret garden for a bonfire experience. She talked to the children about fire and firework safety, helping them to understand how they can stay safe. Afterwards the children toasted vegetarian marshmallows and were able to eat their toasted treat! What fun! 

Happy Birthday Cyril

Cyril enjoyed going home with H for the weekend. H and his family had a birthday party for Cyril! What a lucky squirrel. After his party he spent some time with H's family doing his favourite thing... reading books! Thank you H's family for looking after Cyril so well and making sure he enjoyed lots of lovely picture books!


Some fantastic mark making from F. He was so proud to tell me he had drawn his family and a tent for them to go camping in. What a super effort!

What a great first week we have had in Nursery. The children have been busy learning routines and getting to know each other. We have enjoyed exploring a range of activities together and developing our understanding of colour and shape.

September 2019 - Hello and welcome!


Welcome back to our existing Nursery children and a warm welcome to all our new starters! We are starting the new term with the topic "How many colours are in a rainbow?"


Home activities:

  • Try and spot a rainbow when out and about and talk about the colours. Encourage your child to notice colours, patterns and shapes in their environment.
  • Have a look around your home and see how many different shapes you can find.
  • If you are near a DIY shop, select some of the paint sample cards to take home. Using one of the cards, see if you can find objects in and around the home that match the colour swatches.
  • When sharing books, talk about the pictures and explore what colours and shapes you can see.
