Nursery Class


Welcome to our vibrant Nursery where our youngest learners are given the opportunity to be actively involved in their learning, explore the world around them, learn and practise skills, discover, create and interact, through a broad and rich play-based curriculum. We aim to provide a caring, stimulating, happy environment in which children's individal differences and needs can be recognised and met, so that all aspects of their growth and early development are promoted. Our Nursery team consists of our teacher, Mrs Kaestner, and assistant, Mrs McMahon.

This month we are learning about Pets and Wild Animals. The children will develop their knowledge through fiction and non-fiction books, small world play, role play in our vets and pet shop and through hands-on experience as we have visits from pets and make a trip to C&J's Animal Farm. We are also looking forward to making animal models with Jumping Clay. In April we will be considering the topic of Spring and going on a trip to Quality Time to enjoy a sensory play experience around this theme.
