Lower Foundation Stage
Welcome to our nursery!
We aim to be a friendly, welcoming environment where every child feels happy, safe and secure.The Nursery children are the 'Owls'. Mrs Kenworthy is the teacher supported by Mrs Hunt, Miss Goodair, Mrs Blunden and Mrs Scholey.
In nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum with a strong emphasis on the 'Prime' areas of learning; Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. These areas are fundamental and work together to support development in other areas of learning called the 'Specific' areas of Learning; Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
In Nursery we aim to provide an enabling environment where children learn through play and are challenged, stimulated and engaged. This is planned through fun, purposeful activities, both indoors and outdoors, responding to the children’s interests and stage of development. We are committed to providing positive relationships where children are a valuable member of the team and community. We encourage all children to cooperate and share and to have the confidence to make choices and decisions for themselves.
An information board for parents is displayed in the cloakroom and hard copies of leaflets linked on this page and items of interest for young families are available to read.

Our topic this half term is 'food'.
What do you know about food?
What would you like to find out?
We have selected three targets which will be changed every half term and we would like all children in nursery to practise. Please have a go at these at home then send a 'wow' card in to say what your child has done to achieve the target. Targets and 'wow' cards are displayed in our cloakroom.
This half term we had five very special visitors. They arrived on the Monday and on Wednesday they had started to crack. On Thursday 3 eggs hatched and on Friday 2 more eggs hatched. We observed the changes that happened to them and learnt how to look after them. We learnt that ducks are very messy but they love to swim and splash!
