Welcome to Nursery
We currently have a few spaces available in morning and afternoon Nursery for September 2017. If you have a child who is 3 before the 1/9/17 and would like a Nursery place please call the school office, as soon as possible, on 01527 527619. We will then allocate your child a place and book a home visit appointment.

What's going on in Nursery?
Each term we ensure that we cover each area of the EYFS curriculum. We also use Mantle of the Expert to bring our curriculum to life! If you would like some more information about our plans for this term and how our Nursery and Foundation stage unit runs then please look at the planning and information below.
Mantle of the Expert
This half term we are town planners. We have been commissioned to build a house for a family moving to the area. The children have been testing out their building skills and thinking about the strongest material.
We are very fortunate to have a swimming pool on the school site. In the Spring term we begin to take our Nursery children to the pool. This is a fantastic opportunity for the children to begin to build their confidence in and around water. The children are supervised and supported by at least 2 adults in the pool and by Mrs Williams on the side. The children are taken in groups of no more than 13 and are provided with armbands and buoyancy aids to support their level of water confidence.
The Nursery children are really enjoying their time swimming so far this year. They are already building water confidence and enthusiasm. Children have practiced floating on their backs, washing their hair and faces, kicking their legs and getting Mrs Williams and Mrs Paxton wet! It is a joy to see how far they have come in a few short weeks.
