Library Visit

In Nursery we love books and want our children to develop a love of books and stories. Every Wednesday we visit our school library where the children can choose a book to take home and share with their family. Nursery Library is every Wednesday, please send your child's book bag on this day.

Stay and Play.jpg

In Nursery we love to build relationships and work with our parents as much as we can. 'Walk-in Wednesdays' are a walk-in session every Wednesday where parents can stay and play alongside their child for the first 45 minutes of the session. It's great for our parents to be able to work alongside their children in our fantastic learning environment.

Barnaby Bear's Bedtime Stories

Our class bear is called Barnaby and one lucky child each week gets to take Barnaby Bear home to enjoy a weekend of fun, topped off with a story time with some of our favourite books. Maybe you could even enjoy them with a glass of milk or hot chocolate at bedtime!

We are a read-a-lot, talk-a-lot and sing-a-lot nursery. Our children are immersed in singing, nursery rhymes and quality texts / stories right from their starting point at school!


Curriculum Design

EYFS Curricular Goals:

EYFS Curricular Goals 2021.jpg

Our curricular goals provide a stimulus to enhance our children's imagination, creativity and curiosity. We follow our children's interests and plan various enhancements to the continuous provision that ensure broad and balanced coverage of the EYFS framework and enable our children to develop the skills required to achieve the EYFS milestones. All our curricular goals are underpinned by the importance of developing children's speech and language.

Please refer to the 'Files to Download' tabs at the bottom of the page for tips to help your child at home and our EYFS Curriculum Design Documents.

Our learning journey in Nursery...



December 2023

Today when the children came into nursery they found a letter and a huge surprise! We found and followed the snowy footprints and listened outside for any noises that could have been Father Christmas, his sleigh or his reindeer! The footprints led us to a letter and a sack of presents! We are are all in the festive spirit now and can't wait to explore our christmas activities!

November 2023

Today is Children in Need 2023! We have been talking about why we raise money and how we can help other people. We have enjoyed lots of Pudsey Bear themed activities that have also helped us to develop our fine motor and creative skills.

October 2023

In Nursery we love being expressive and imaginative. We had so much fun dressing up and dancing during our Spooky Party this month. We have also enjoyed exploring and using pumpkins as part of our play. We have discussed their different shapes and sizes, explored and investigated what is inside a pumpkin and used the seeds to develop our fine motor skills.
