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 Gilkes (Nursery Lead), Mrs Abraham (Early Years Practitioner), Miss Essen (Early Years Practitioner), Mrs Tortora (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs Smith Manze (Teaching Assistant).
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.

The Very Busy Spider

What an incredibly busy week it has been, the children have had a lovely time exploring Autumn and doing activities around our story of the week. ‘The Very Busy Spider’ by Eric Carle is the story we have been focusing on. The children have been using their fine motor skills to make a spider's web. The first step was to use the hand held hole punch to create several holes around the edge of a paper plate. After this, the children had to thread some string back and forth through the holes to create their very own spider’s web. As the children got to know the story, together we created a story map so the children could retell the story independently. This also gave them an opportunity to create their own story maps as well.
Alongside this, we have been discussing Autumn and how things are changing. Later on in the week, we went on an Autumn walk and tried to find different coloured leaves, sticks, pinecones and conkers. In the middle of the walk, the children listened for environmental sounds and identified that they could hear the leaves blowing in the wind. We couldn’t go on a walk without taking the opportunity to do some rolly pollies down the hill, as you can imagine the children had lots of fun doing this!
