A warm welcome from all of the Nursery team.
A typical day in Nursery will consist of; registration/good morning, a short focussed activity (maths or phonics), choosing time indoors and outdoors, snack time and story/singing.
Please remember to…
- Name all of your child’s clothes, shoes and any items that they bring into Nursey.
- Drop off and collect your child on time.
- Encourage your child to look in their tray for pictures, letters, jumpers and models.
- Hand lunch time cover money in every Monday in a named envelope (30 hour children).
- Resist the temptation to do everything for your child and encourage them to try and do it for themselves. E.G. dressing and toileting.
- Remember that no worry is too small, if you are concerned about your child please let us know so that we can help.

All this week we have been working on developing our fine motor skills. We have been using tweezers to pick googly eyes from the water, sorting pompoms, colour mixing using pipettes, threading cereal onto pipe cleaners to make bird feeders and so much more. We have...
Children in Caterpillars and Butterflies had lots of fun in the sun today finding out about Spain. We looked at where Spain was on a map and discussed how we could travel there. We looked at and tasted Spanish foods and we focused on our cutting skills by making flags...
