Welcome to the Nursery!
Our Nursery caters for children aged 2-4 years and is comprised of three main areas, a two year old room and two spacious rooms and an intervention space for 3-4 year olds.
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 Autumn, Celebrations, Christmas and Nursery Rhymes. We will be learning about how the season is progressing in Autumn and looking at what we can see changing around us, especially in our Forest with all the leaves blowing down and the animals that we might see. We will be making firework pictures, dances and exploring words to desfribe them. We will be increasing our repertoire of Nursery Rhymes and songs and learning some Christmas songs to sing in our Nativity play. We have more dens to play and talk in with our friends and we have been excited to ee our new small world resources including a castle and farm.
