Nursery Overview 2017/18



We have had a wonderful year in nursery and the children have really blossomed. We have packed so much in and have had lots of different experiences. We started off the year reading “Owl Babies” and learning all about autumn. We went on a Bear Hunt, explored ice when Jack Frost visited and had a lot of trouble with a Naughty Bus! We have really enjoyed superheroes and have done lots of imaginative play and problem solving. In the spring we had some caterpillars delivered and we learnt all about the life cycle of a butterfly. The summer brought a special treat when an ice cream van visited us and we did lots of activities based around the beach. Phew – what a busy year!

Nursery Class of 2016/2017


The children in Nursery have had a fantastic year!

We started the year reading the Owl Babies and got the opportunity to meet some real owls.

Over the past twelve months we have explored space and visited the moon, helped Super worm with his challenges and been on a magical mystery tour.

The Nursery has been involved in the SEMH project that promotes and encourages collaborative play. This has helped develop the children speech and language development, their social development and how they manage their own feelings and behaviour.

The older Nursery children are very excited about moving up to Reception.
