Welcome To Nursery

In Nursery we have Mrs Brotherhood, Miss Tideswell and 26 delightful children. We work in family groups- Bumble Bees with Mrs Brotherhood and Ladybirds with Miss Tideswell. We also share Mrs Shingler with Reception Class.

We would like to give a very warm welcome to all our new nursery children and their grown ups.

 Theme Summer 1

Our theme is growing. We planted radish, cress, sunflower and many more seeds. We learnt all about what the seeds needed to grow and how to care for them. We  then watched them grow and then ate them!!  The children have monitored the strawberries everyday and got really excited when they turned red ready to eat. 

We work hard all day long doing our jobs and completing our tasks.

We participate in small group time, large group time, Phonics and RE sessions.

We drink milk in the morning, eat dinner in the dinner hall, share bread and salad in the afternoon and fruit to end the day.

Theme Summer 2

We continue our theme on growing, now learning about babies and their characteristics. It was lovely to welcome baby visitors and their mummies. Next we looked at animals and their babies, learning how they grow and what their names are eg cow and calf.

Home Learning

Please read daily with your child for approx 10 mins. Your child has been given a library book, a reading book and a reading diary for you and us to comment in.

We are teaching Phase two letters and sounds.  Your child will be given letter cards to practise letter sounds everyday. Please say the sound each letter makes and then build words up blending and segmenting to read eg c-a-t or h-u-ff

Practical Homework will be set weekly.

Physical Development

We go outside everyday so please make sure your child has a coat and suitable footwear in school.


We will change for PE as soon as we feel the children are able. Your child should have a labelled PE kit on their coat peg at school. Our PE day is Thursday.

Celebration Assembly

Every Friday we have a celebration assembly, where children's work and achievement is celebrated. We have awards for Worker Of The Week, Star Of The Week and the Lunchtime Supervisor award.


Please fill in a wow form - (they are located in the cloakroom area) every time your child achieves some significant learning at home. The children love to stand up and hear us all say "WOW....." and give a big clap.
