Investors in Pupils’

Last half term all of our children achieved our target, which was to come into Nursery happily.

This half-term our target for the Nursery childten is to be able to put on their own coats.  For the childre n that achieve this, they will receive some sort of reward before the Christmas holidays but I am sure all of the children will be able to put on their own coat by then.

So the children need to practise putting on their own coat at home.



Some of our children are celebrating Diwali today with their family.  We hope that you all have lots of fun making happy memories with your family and friends.  The children made a Diwali card to take home to their family and we hope you liked them.  Here is the Diwali card that the children in nursery made.




As you know we are learning about colour through celebrations and for the next fortnight the nursery children are going to help P.B Bear get ready for his birthday party.  They will do this by making presents for him, designing and decorating birthday hats, making him a birthday card and lots of other exciting activities.  I am sure that the children will have lots of fun in our birthday house role-play area.  At the end we are going to have a birthday party for P.B. Bear and all of his friends are going to help him celebrate his birthday as the children will bring in a teddy bear.




Welcome to all the new Nursery children and parents.

The children have settled in extremely well into nursery which is fantastic!  They have been doing some fantastic learning and practising their key skills, for example climbing, pouring and filling in the water and building tall towers.

This term we are learning about colour through celebrations; we will be listening to stories, singing songs and completing lots of fun activities.

It would be really help your child’s learning if you talked about any celebrations that your child has taken part in at home and also help them to learn their colours.

Many thanks for your continued support.



Cockfield’s Farm Christmas Experience

In the Autumn Term the children from Nursery visited Cockfield’s Farm for the Christmas Experience.  The children looked at some animals and got to hold them, which they thoroughly enjoyed.  Then they listened carefully to a story that was read by Mrs Claus.  After that they made a Christmas craft and then they attended Elf School where they learnt how to be an Elf.  Next they had to knock on a door and see who was in the room.  The children were extremely excited to see Father Christmas and he gave them all a very special gold coin that they could go and spend in his toy workshop.

This was a very fun and exciting day that was thoroughly enjoyed by all!
