Nursery

 

Hello and welcome to the nursery. My name is Mrs Flack and I am the class teacher. Mrs Norman and Mrs Hunter join us every morning and they are also key workers.

We do a range of exciting and fun activities and we are learning all the time. We learn by playing with our friends and taking part in many activities in many different areas in our unit. Some of these include the creative area, maths, understanding the world, construction, role play, malleable, literacy, and sand and water areas.

We also take part in music activities, such as singing and playing instruments. These take place in the hall where we can also use the large apparatus and play with the parachute. We love cooking and make a variety of things.

During the year we look at different topics every half term. As the seasons change we look at our local environment and celebrate different festivals and cultural activities.

Finally we want your children to be happy and settled in the nursery and value partnership with parents. I am available every morning before and after our sessions if you need to speak to me and you can also speak to your child’s key worker, if I am busy.
Let’s work together to make your child’s nursery experience the best it can possibly be.
