From a child's very first day in 2 Year Nursery, all the way through to Year 6 we support children to make the right 'CHOICES' to enable them to grow into well-rounded, motivated individual. 


We know this is such an important time in your child’s school life, where routines are established and relationships are built between home and school. We will always do our best to work closely with you, to ensure that your child has a smooth start to their school career in such a way that you as well as the children feel comfortable, supported and respected.


Indoor Environment

We enjoy using different resources to mark make. We enjoy filling and pouring with the water toys.  We enjoy looking at the bugs using magnifying glasses  We select number resources and toys from the drawers. We enjoy role play and this half term we have a shop.  
We enjoy pushing the cars up and down the ramps. We enjoy selecting toys from the baskets. We share stories every day. We  are learning to use the bathroom independently.   We wash our hands independently. 

Outdoor Environment

We enjoy climbing up the ladders and going down the slide. We are busy planting this half term. We take lots of trips in our car. We enjoy painting and drawing outside. We enjoy exploring in our mud kitchen.
