Our Nursery reflects the nurturing and supportive learning environment of our current Early Years provision where your child will grow and thrive.
Our Busy Blog
The nursery team consists of Mrs Hollingsworth (Nursery Teacher), Mrs Bray (Nursery Teacher), Mrs Abraham (Early Years Practitioner), Mrs Colby (Early Years Teaching Assistant) and Miss Essen (Early Years Practitioner Apprentice). All members of the team work hard to offer a nurturing and supportive learning environment for the children to thrive and grow. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with an emphasis on promoting the characteristics of effective learning. This approach fosters a love of learning and provides challenge linked closely to developmentally age appropriate experience. We strive to create an environment where the children feel confident to explore and discover new things. As a Nursery, we understand that all children are unique and understand the importance of following their individual interests.

For the last couple of weeks we have been looking at the book ‘Snowball’ by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. We have enjoyed exploring the book and lots of things to do with winter. We got the chance to feel snow powder in a tuft spot and we talked about what it felt like. In P.E we have been using what we know about snow to move our bodies like snowflakes,going faster, slower, higher and lower. In phonics we went on a ‘listening walk’ to see if we could identify any wither sounds. Lastly, the children have been getting creative and made their own houses like the ones from the Snowball story. The children had to identify the shapes they were using and then count how many sides each shape had as a challenge.
