smileyWelcome to our Nursery Classsmiley

It is with great pleasure that we welcome the Nursery children into D1. This will be a wonderful year full of learning and fun, we can't wait to begin our Nursery journey smiley


This term we will be covering the topic 'All About Me' this will allow the Nursery staff to get to know  a little more about your child, from their favourite toys to favourite foods.

The children will begin to go into  Family Groups over the next half- term alongside having a personal journal to support their time in Nursery.


Here is some information about the Nursery class:


  • We ask that fruit money is paid on a Monday morning (£1).
  • Book bags and homework are handed out on a Thursday and are to be returned on a Monday morning.
  • As we take part in a lot of outdoor activities we ask that wellies are all labelled  and left in school.
  • Please can you label clothing.



Since Miss Potter has joined the D1 team, we have been extremely busy creating our vegetable hut located in our garden. We have planted cabbage and kale, made saltdough vegetables and created our very own scarecrow using recycled waste. 

We have had lots of fun in D1 this autumn!

We would like to welcome you back to D1 class, we hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and wish you all a very Happy New Year. 

This half term we will be focussing our learning on the topic winter; we have created a brand new Arctic small world area within the classroom, and will be asking the children what else they would like to find out about relating to the topic. 


From a discussion with the children about what they would like to see in their role play area, we are in the process of creating a Vets corner in class. We will also be learning about different types of animals and how to care for them. 


We are all very excited to get started on this terms learning, and thank you for your continuous support with home tasks! :)
