‘A pathway to grow, be curious and discover’


Welcome to Nursery



We are looking forward to an exciting new term in Nursery. Learning is through play and we will continue to provide a wide range of activities to develop the children's skills and knowledge and to encourage their curiosity and independence. 


Learning is planned through exciting topics. This half term we are thinking and learning about 'Minibeasts'. We will be reading lots of stories and singing songs linked to the topic plus learning about how living things grow, animal life cycles and minibeast hunts. 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.


Keep checking the web page to see our exciting news, photos and amazing learning.


The nursery team are Mrs Spillman, Miss Lumley and Mrs Harrison
