Nursery routine and Curriculum
In the Nursery we offer lots of opportunities to learn through play, including craft, games, messy play, building and small world. The children are also involved in simple Literacy and Numeracy activities which are planned to meet the individual needs of the children.
We provide a stimulating, nurturing environment that allows children to learn valuable social skills such as co-operation and independence. We also place a high emphasis on outside play with a recently developed playground area which the children love! We value the importance of healthy living with a daily healthy snack.
Copies of planning and Topics are displayed in the Nursery so that you can see what your child is doing each half term.

This week we have commenced our materials/buildings topic through our big book 'The Three Little Pigs'. We have discussed the materials they used in the story to build their homes and the children have also made homes for the pigs in a variety of ways. Outdoors the children have dressed as builders to construct a house of bricks. Indoors the children used craft materials to produce a large house of straw, sticks and bricks (please see the display in nursery). They have painted the characters from the story which you can also see on display in nursery.
