Welcome to the Nursery



Good Morning,

If you are at home I hope you managed to take part in the live SASP fun exercise stream at 10.00 this morning we did in the Nursery and it was great fun exercising whilst looking for superheroes! Next week they will live stream again at 10.00am on Tuesday and we will be exercising at a pretend park.


Have fun!


Happy New Year!

If have chosen to stay at home please find a group of resources below that you can work through. The Nursery is fully open and has at least three quarters attendance so remember you are welcome to come.


If you are not in Nursery we will try to let you know what we are doing each week on this page or via Tapestry. We are currently working on a topic about dinosaurs. We are designing and inventing our own dinosaurs as well as reading dinosaur stories, colouring dinosaur pictures and singing dinosaur songs.


Our welly walk this week has involved matching  an object to a colour. For example the children chose a blue or red teddy then they had to find their colour outside.


I have had some information from the SASP team who help to support with easy exercise and fun active games. Every Tuesday morning they are going live on You Tube we will have a try at doing it in the Nursery next week if you would like to have a go I have copied the information below.

Below is a photograph of the things you will need your child to have at Nursery. Please can you make sure they are clearly labelled on the outside as shown in the photo. They will need:

A lunch box if not having hot meals.

A drinks bottle

A small bag with spare clothes,

A coat as we go out everyday whatever the weather (hats, scarves and gloves in the Winter),

A pair of welly boots.

Over the last few weeks we have had lots of fun with different Christmas activities. We have enjoyed learning Christmas songs, making Christmas crafts, having a party, Christmas dinner and finally today Santa left us some treats on a Welly Walk!!



As part of our Winter topic we have been monitoring how long it takes different amounts of ice to melt in different areas outside. We also had great fun on a frosty welly walk.


This week we have started a topic about Winter. We have moved in PE like ice skaters and skiers.

We have watched the classic film, 'The Snowman' and started to make our own individual Snow People Christmas cards! Today we have been brainstorming what we know about Winter and recording our ideas.


The children have been finding out about why we have Remembrance Day. They have all made a Poppy which is decorated with collage materials and displayed in the classroom.

The children also observed the minutes silence.


This week we have been on several welly walks looking for shapes around our school environment.



This week we have been looking at numbers. We have been counting and seeing if we can recognise numbers 1-5 out of sequence. On our Welly Walk we collected leaves then matched the correct quantity to numbers on a Peppa Pig picture card.

Below are a wide range of different resources to use and refer to if the Nursery has to close again.

Nursery Children, here is a little video - we hope you like it!

British Values




This week we have finalised a set of class rules. After talking about how we think we should behave towards each other and how we should look after our classroom environment inside and outside we have set out our rules and have displayed them in the classroom to remind us.


This week we voted for our favourite cbeebies show to watch. Topsy and Tim came out favourite.
