Primary and Nursery School

‘A pathway to grow, be curious and discover’


Welcome to Nursery



The children have settled really well back into nursery and are enjoying playing, exploring and learning. The nursery team are Mrs Spillman, Mrs Wright and Mrs Derisa and we are looking forward to having lots of fun with the children this Summer term.


Learning is planned through exciting topics. This half term we are thinking and learning about 'growing'. Activities will include learning about the different things which grow, growing our own flowers, fruits and vegetables and reading texts linked to the topic. We also plan from the children’s interests and what they want to learn and find out about. Learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom and we are very lucky to have a lovely outdoor area where we love to explore, climb and build.
