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.

During January we are considering the season of winter. We will be exploring cold colours through collage, weaving and sculptures. Winter clothes provides us with opportunities as we practise our fine motor skills, make patterns, match and sort. We will be exploring the concepts of melting and freezing and creating our own winter sensory landscape. Through small world resources and non-fiction books we will be learning about life in cold world climates.
