Our Nursery is situated in a self contained bungalow next to the playground. This allows us access to school but also allows us to have an environment that is a link between home and school. We have our own entrance and outdoor area and easy access to Forest School. We also have our own toilet and changing facilities and a kitchen as well as plenty of space for indoor activities.
In Nursery, we follow the Early Years foundation Stage Curriculum. This covers 7 main areas:
We aim to cover these areas as practically as possible and with as much fun as we can!
Nursery is open 5 mornings a week and sessions run from 8.30am to 11.45 am. We accept children in the term following their third birthday or when they are 2 years 9 months if they qualify for funding.
We have a maximum number of 26 children at any one time.
If you would like to apply for a place at our Nursery or would like any further information about admissions please contact the office.
In the Spring Term, we were learning about stories written by Julia Donaldson. This included The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom. We acted out the stories, made scrambled snake, roasted fox and owl ice cream.We also had a visit from our school snake and owls from a local falconry centre.
World Book Day was part of our time with Room on the Broom so staff dressed up as characters from the story and children dressed as their favourite character from other stories.
We celebrated Easter with the rest of the school by wearing Easter bonnets. (made by parents) We also had an Easter egg hunt in our garden and a visit from one of our parents who showed us some exciting science.
This term, we are looking at growing and plan to grow lots of flowers and vegetables. We are developing our outside area and as most of our children love to be outside, we are hoping for some good weather.
We will also be thinking about animals and plan to visit a farm. We may also have a few visitors.
In May, we have our Sports Morning where Foundation Stage ( Nursery and Reception) meet and show off our physical skills to all our parents and then of course, we will be preparing some of our children for school in September; making sure they know the Reception Staff and building their confidence in moving around school.
We are looking forward to meeting our new children towards the end of the Summer Term so if you have a child who will be three years old before September and would like to apply for a place, please let us know.
