Curriculum News

You  should have received information about what the children will be learning this term. Some  children are more willing to share their day with parents than others so we will do our best to keep you informed about what’s going on. Nursery is always a busy place. This half term our starting point is Traditional Tales and we will begin with 'The Big Pancake'

We enjoy daily story time in nursery some of our favourite stories are

  • Owl Babies
  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar
  • Shark in the Park
  • The Tiger Who came for Tea
  • We're Going on a Bear Hunt
  • It's the Bear

YouTube is a great place to find these stories and many more.




Thank you to every one who has already donated £2 donation towards  our cooking and messy activities, the money will help to buy our cooking and play dough ingredients as well as all of our messy play ingredients, spaghetti, corn flour and shaving foam to name but a few!      


A Quick Reminder .

Water bottles are for water, no juice in Nursery.


Learning Journeys

Please remember to look at your child's individual 'Learning Journey' as well as the class 'Learning Journey' on the porch wall, both will have lots of photographs of the exciting activities on offer. It would be great if you could send us any photographs of days out, special family events or anything your child is proud of so we can share your child's learning journey. Please send to


Don't forget to send photographs of the Half Term Homework- 100 Things To Do Before you are 6. 


Reminders : Tuesday is library day, please can all children bring a named bag in which they can take their library book home in.
