Welcome to Nursery!

In our Nursery we aim to foster happy and independent children who thrive in an environment which is fun, caring and full of new and exciting challenges and experiences.  The children are given opportunities for both indoor and outdoor learning on a daily basis, with activities being selected to stimulate their senses and learning styles.
Topics and themes are carefully planned to capture the children’s interest and imaginations and whilst learning is play based and child led, sessions are structured in a way that allows us to combine formal learning in phonics and maths with more free-flowing play sessions.   Learning can take place in small groups or whole class sessions and is always supported and extended by adults in the classroom, as part of the children's play. 
We work hard to ensure the children are safe, happy and make excellent progress during their time with us, developing a range of skills including physical development and personal, social and emotional development so they are ready to continue their learning and development in Reception Class.

We had a lot of fun this week making a really tall tower with the octagons.  It got so tall that it started to bend!  We needed a lot of hands to help it stay straight and steady.

We have enjoyed making delicious cakes for our new cakes stands and cake cases, the cakes look so yummy!  Thank you, Mrs Mackenzie, for your super fun donation.

For Children in Need we dressed up as people we find 'inspiring'. Some of our inspirational people in Nursery are doctors, nurses and of course our Mummies!

We have been very busy doing all of the things we love to do at Nursery.

Our clay Diya lamps are dry so we have spent the week carefully painting them.  We have added a bit of glittery sparkle too!  We will be taking them home very soon.

We have been very busy learning about Diwali this week.  We have been making our own Diya lamps out of clay.  We are going to paint and decorate them next week.

Thank you to Jeeya and her family for the amazing Diwali decorations and Diya lamps, we have enjoyed exploring and talking about them. 

We had great fun dressing up for international attire day! 

We have been busy sweeping up our autumn leaves this week although the wind has made it a little challenging!

Thank you to Reggie for bringing in these wonderful signs of Autumn, we have really enjoyed exploring them.  The chestnuts are amazing as they are so spikey!  

We have been busy balancing this week.  We have been finding different ways to travel along the balancing beams without wobbling or falling off.  

We have enjoyed painting and drawing pictures of our lovely Mummies and ourselves this week.

Some of the children have been very busy writing in birthday cards this week.  Their writing is amazing!

Kayla has had a wonderful go at writing her name on her painting.  Well done Kayla!
