Parents' Diary Dates

 Please can you check our Notice Board in the Nursery entrance each session to keep up to date with upcoming events and general Nursery information.  You can also click on the link further down the page to view our Newsletter.  It has lots of useful information on it about what we are going to be learning in Nursery this half term.  


Look at what we have been learning.

We have settled into Nursery well and love exploring all the different areas of the classroom.

Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to our Mark Making and Early Writing Wow morning. We had a fantastic time.

Reading at Home

Please bring your child's book bag to every session so that they can change their library book as often as they would like using the self-service library in the Nursery entrance.

Thank you



Each half term we will send you a Newsletter to keep you up to date with up coming events and let you know the things we are going to be learning at Nursery. Click on the links below to see our Newsletters.
