Welcome to Nursery's website page!

Welcome to Nursery’s website page. .


Our teachers in Nursery are Miss Ebdon, supported by Mrs Laidler and Mrs Robson.


Please find below our term by term curriculum plan for the year. This will tell you what we are learning about in all of our subjects and many of the exciting things we are doing in our learning.


You can also read our current class text which prompt our reading and writing for the term. Please try to work with your child to read and know this text really well.


Please ensure that PE kits are left in school and they will be sent home at the end of each half term. During the Autumn term, we will initially only change into plimsolls for PE.


For Christmas in Nursery, we have taken part in lots of exciting activities! We have taken part in activities during our independent learning, such as making reindeer food, making and decorating playdough Christmas trees and writing our letters to Santa. We have also enjoyed our Christmas Party, where we took part in lots of dancing and party games. For Christmas Jumper Day, we wore our Christmas Jumpers to school and then designed our own jumpers. We also worked really hard to perform and record our Nativity. Finally, we also had our very own Polar Express Day where we visited the North Pole on the Polar Express and took part in lots of different activities.


This month, we have been really busy in Nursery. We’ve celebrated Diwali by designing our own Rangoli patterns. We learned about how to stay safe during Bonfire Night and made our own sparkler biscuits using sprinkles and chocolate fingers – they were delicious! We have also finished our Autumn topic by making our own vegetable soup and learning about the jobs that farmers do to help us. We started learning about ‘Alaska’ during our Around the World sessions too.

Autumn in Nursery

This half term, we have been learning all about Autumn, including seasonal change, signs of Autumn and celebrations that take place in Autumn. We have learned about suitable clothing for Autumn and have listened to lots of Autumn stories.

Settling into Nursery – September 2021

We have spent the past couple of weeks exploring our new environment and making new friends. During our carpet times, we have been singing lots of songs and number rhymes and have shared some stories with our friends, beginning to talk about the different parts of a book. We have also been learning our school rules and how we can be good learners on the carpet.

During our independent learning, we have had lots of fun making playdough cakes, sharing stories and looking after the babies in our role play area. We have also explored our outdoor environment, using the climbing equipment, bikes and the yard to play games with our friends.

Macmillan Coffee Morning – Friday 24th September 2021

Today we have celebrated Macmillan Coffee Morning with our friends. We came to school dressed in something green and we have made and baked cakes to take home so we can have our own tea party. We learned about the charity and how it helps other people. During the day, we took part in lots of Macmillan themed activities, such as designing and decorating bunting, decorating a gingerbread man and colouring in our own tasty cakes.

For snack time, we shared some cakes and a drink with our friends.
