Welcome to Nursery's class page

In Nursery we follow the Early Years curriculum which is split into the seven areas of learning:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive art and design

The children learn through adult led and child initiated activities, which develop key learning skills and provide new experiences in a stimulating environment.


We encourage children to take part in the Early Years challenge of the week which is displayed in the Early Years foyer. 


Later in the year children will come home with a name writing book to practise writing their full name.   


Nursery's PE day is a Wednesday.

What we have been up to

Next term our topic is called 'Can I have a dog?' Our memorable experience will entail a friendly dog coming to visit us in class. We will be exploring pets, wild animals, extinct creatures and various other animals throughout the term.

Have a lovely break and we look forward to seeing you in November.smiley
