Our Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery webpage.  Our teacher is Mrs Mayhew! Two years ago we started to develop our own forest school and we can often be found on the field building shelters and climbing trees. Our Nursery Nurse is Mrs Ruse and we have two  lovely teaching assistant called Mrs Anwar and Mrs Dunk.

We run two nursery sessions each day. Our first begins at 8:45 and finishes at 11:45. Our afternoon session begins at 12:30 and finishes at 3:30.  Each day we are involved in some guided group work, whole class learning and independent learning.  Once a week we have a P.E lesson in the school hall. One of our favourite activities is 'forest school'. We have lots of fun learning about the outdoors and developing our skills by building dens, climbing trees, whittling sticks, problem solving and creating new contraptions. All of our sessions are run by a fully qualified forest school instructor.

Our outdoor learning area is still being developed and Mrs Mayhew and our teaching assistants have lots of ideas for it. At the moment we love our mud kitchen, home made shelters and gravel pit which houses our trucks.

We are excited to announce that during the summer holidays 2018 the interior of our nursery building was totally refurbished.  We are now looking forward to making improvements to our outdoor learning environment.
