Foundation Stage Unit
Welcome to the Nursery!
Our Nursery caters for children aged 2-4 years and is comprised of two bases, a two year old base and a 3-4 year old base.
Our youngest children (2 year olds) access the Hedgehog room.
Our older children (3 and 4 year olds) children access the Rabbit , Squirrels and Badger rooms.
We are very fortunate to have access to our fabulous Forest School. The Nursery children visit the Forest every Friday Morning. Two year olds will visit the Forest regularly to ensure all part-time children are able to share in the experience.
To ensure that all children get the maximum time in the Forest, we would really appreciate your help in supporting your child to get changed into their Forest School clothes. We provide all children with a waterproof coat and trousers. Please supply your child with a name pair of wellington boots, to be kept in school if possible.

Each child in the Hedgehogs' base has a key person who builds a special relationship with them and their families and supports them with their learning and development. The list of the key people for the two year olds is available in Hedgehogs’ base.
The themes in our Nursery classes this half term are Nursery Rhymes, Autumn and Colour. We will be learning about how the season is changing to Autumn and looking at what we can see changing around us, especially in our Forest. We will be looking at the amazing colours we see and also matching and sorting by colour with a range of objects. We will be increasing our repertoire of Nursery Rhymes and settling into our new environment , establishing routines and how to care for the resources in each room. We will be getting to know each other and our Nursery adults and learning how to share, take turns and make new friends!
