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 Journey

Our Spring Learning

This term we have started our new topic on castles, we have made a castle role play and learned about different parts of a castle. We have also been extending our mathematical knowledge by exploring numbers and shapes. We have had a number of the week every week that we have learned about, been on number hunts and made shape and number monsters. We have also spent lots of time thinking about our feelings and how we can manage them by playing games and reading stories. Finally we have been practicing our fine motor skills by threading, using tweezers to sort objects, cutting and using play dough. 


World Book Day 

We enjoyed a pyjama  day for World Book Day in Nursery. we set up lots of story sacks of stories that we enjoy for the children to explore. We all enjoyed retelling our favourite tales and even making up our own. 


We have been learning all about Easter. We learned it is a Christian celebration and have been thinking about the reasons why it is an important time in the Christian calendar.
