Welcome to Nursery
The end of another school year!
Hello everyone, we have come to the end of academic year 2020 - 2021 and it has been a very strange and sometimes difficult school year for us all. The children have coped extremely well and made progress in all areas of their learning despite the disruptions that they have faced.
Unfortunately we were not able to host our annual graduation assembly for the children moving into Reception but we have made a short video celebrating their success. Please click on the link below to view the video.
I would like to thank all the children for their hard work this year and also the parents, carers and grandparents who have given us their support and co-operation throughout the year. It has been a pleasure working with you all.
Also a special thank you to Miss Stasik who does an excellent job supporting the children's learning and development in our Early Years and I am very grateful she is remaining in Early Years for the next academic year.
I am looking forward to working with the nursery returners again from September and I wish all the children moving into Reception lots of luck and success...I know that you are all going to be fantastic!
Have a great summer holidays and I will see you all in September.

Everyday activities to help your child's learning and development
Parents and carers play a vital role in their child's learning and development and there are lots of activities you can do at home or when you are out that will help.
- counting up and down the stairs
- setting the table with correct amount of cutlery and plates
- sorting the washing into groups e.g. pairing socks
- listening to the sounds in the environment when walking to the shops/the park
- using climbing equipment in the park to develop muscles and co-ordination
- sharing a book and talking about the pictures and the story line
- singing nursery rhymes
- putting coats on independently and practising zips and fastening buttons
- putting on socks and shoes

Nursery times and sessions
We provide 15 hours a week of education for 3 and 4 year old children. We operate these hours over 5 days a week.
Morning session 8.45am - 11.30am
Afternoon session 12.15pm - 3.15pm
If you require a 8.30am start for morning nursery please speak to Miss McArdle.
Miss McArdle is the Nursery teacher and the Early Years Foundation Stage Manager. Miss Stasik is the Nursery Nurse. We also work closely with the Reception class staff.
Nursery snack money is £1 per week. This helps to provide a daily snack and goes towards buying ingredients when we do cookery activities. The type of snacks we have are cereal, toast, yogurts, cheese and crackers for example. Children can have milk or water to drink.
We take part in a short PE session with a specialist games coach on a Thursday. Children should keep a pair of black pumps in nursery to wear for our PE lesson.
Weekly newsletters are sent home at the end of the week to let parents know what we have been learning about.
