Welcome to our Nursery, also known as FS1. In our  nursery we learn through hands on, practical experiences and planned play opportunities. We like to provide the children with as many opportunities to explore and experiment as possible within all areas of the setting. We are a very child led setting and like to make sure we follow the children's interests to ensure engagement and enthusiasm for learning.

Learning Environment 

Learning Journey

Christmas in Nursery

In Nursery we learned all about the Christmas Story in order to prepare for our Nativity performance. We had some special visits from Father Christmas and his Elves and had lots of fun at our Christmas party. 

Our Autumn Learning

This term we have been learning about the story Stick Man. We made our own stick men from sticks we collected and we have had a big focus on rhyme. We spent lots of time singing nursery rhymes and listening for words that sounded the same.


Remembrance Day

We learned all about the soldiers and animals who fought in wars to protect our country. We painted poppies and poppy fields and took part in a 1 minute silence. 

Bonfire Night

We learned all about the gunpowder plot and Guy Fawkes. We explored different ways of making bonfire pictures, we explored a sensory tray and role played visiting a bonfire.
