In Nursery we learn through a play based curriculum.

We pride ourselves on ensuring children feel safe, secure and are happy to learn in the nursery environment. We work closely with parents and carers to provide the best for the children within our care.
Once upon a time...
We shall be asking the questions.....
What is a traditional tale?
Do all stories start the same way?
Are fairy tales real?
Can you tell me about your favourite traditional tale?
What sort of stories do we like?
How is Easter celebrated?
Do we know about the Easter?
**There are limited places available, so if you know anyone with a three year old who is looking for a Nursery place please recommend us and encourage them to come and look around.
We shall be using a range of texts to support our learning and also be supporting our language development by continuing singing our rhymes and songs. Please see our planning on the Nursery notice board to find out what we shall be covering each week.
We shall be promoting our British Values in Nursery this term by learning to use our manners and share equipment with our friends. We will also be learning about how British people celebrate Chinese New Year.

WHISPER - Anonymous Reporting Tool
Sometimes it is really hard to tell an adult if you feel like you are being bullied. That is why we have subscribed to WHISPER. It is an anonymous reporting tool which allows you or your child to report any incidents of bullying and cyber bullying in confidence.
Click on the web link below to fill in a report. It will then be emailed to Miss Hughes (Online Safety Coordinator). Messages are checked as often as possible. In order to resolve issues effectively and promptly, please include your name. This will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
If you have any concerns or worries about your child regarding online safety and would like further advice, please contact Miss Hughes or Mr Lyons, the school's online safety co-ordinators or speak to Mrs Dainty, Headteacher.
