January 5th, 2021: Happy New Year!

We hope that you’ve had a lovely holiday. We are very sad not to be meeting in person yet but are looking forward to being in regular contact through Learning Book.

For the time being we will be using our class webpage ( then click on more-classes-nursery) and Learning Book for our remote learning. 

Class webpage: Each week we will post a timetable with details of learning activities for your child on the class webpage.  Each fortnight we will also have a new topic grid of activities for your child to choose from that will be shared on the class webpage.

Learning Book: Last term we began to use Learning Book, our online observation tool for monitoring your child’s progress.  You were sent a link to create your parent account and this is already active – please contact us if you have any problems accessing this – see contact details below.  

We will upload a daily story time and sometimes other videos onto Learning Book so please check this daily.  

We would like you to upload some text comments and / or pictures about what your child has been enjoying at home each week on Learning Book. We will be able to see your observations and will respond to your child as soon as possible – please note that as we will also be teaching keyworker children you may have to wait for a reply but we will get back to you as soon as we can.  

We are looking forward to working with you and to hearing about the exciting learning your children are doing.  Please contact us through or the new Nursery email account (details to follow shortly) if you need any further support.

Best wishes,

Mrs Torenga, Mrs Woodman, Mrs Swarmi and Miss Stuart

December 2020: It's been a busy Term 2 and we've had a lot of fun together!  Here are a few pictures of some of the things we have been doing, as well as some photos from our end of term performance.

We have had a busy first term in Nursery. We discovered Incy Wincy Spider does not like the rain as he hates getting wet! We wrote fantastic new rhymes for him so he can experience different types of weather.

Here are some pictures of a few other things we have done recently.

The children have made a super start to the year! Here are some photos from our first few weeks in Nursery.

We’re going on a Listening Walk,

We’re going to listen with our EARS,

What can we hear?

We have been so impressed at the super listening the children have been doing on our Listening Walks and in listening games this week. Keep listening out for sounds at home and when you are out and about.



Nursery Rhymes

This term we are focusing on nursery rhymes and the children are really enjoying singing them together.

Click on the video links below to sing along and do actions for the rhymes we have been practising so far:

Incy Wincy Spider

The Wheels on the Bus

Row, Row, Row your Boat

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep
