A warm welcome to family and friends of Nursery C. Our class page is frequently updated to share our fantastic learning and exciting experiences in Nursery.


Our Nursery day is always a busy one, filled with lots of exciting activities support to your child's development in all areas of the early years curriculum. 


I have a question!

If you have any curriculum specific questions please does not hesitate to send an email to the following address:

It would also be fantastic to hear all about your home learning experiences, so please share any pictures or videos of your children at home using the email address.



Every Friday we also send home a weekly home learning map. The weekly home learning support activities play an important role in ensuring your child has the best start to their school life.

If your need any guidance or support with this, a member of our Nursery team would be delighted to help!

Number in the Environment

We have recently been exploring number in our environment and have been searching the outdoor area for different quantities of items. We found different quantities of toys, pots, baskets, chairs, tables and bricks. 

Exploring Shapes

We have recently been exploring shapes practically in the classroom and have particularly enjoyed creating our own shape monsters using basic 2D shapes.

This week, we have been sharing good news and celebrating each others successes during our RE sessions. We also were invited to bring our own examples of good news in to share during circle time. Take a look at our examples of good news.

Spring is finally here!

This week, we have been exploring our natural environment and searching for signs of spring. We found lots of interesting minibeasts and flowers at forest school, including ladybirds and daffodils. We also took some of natural resources we found back to the classroom to create beautiful spring collages.

We have been trying new food in Nursery during snack time and as part of our curriculum enrichment.  This week, we had a go at making our own fruit kebabs. Whilst we were making the fruit kebabs, we described the different fruits, counted the amount of fruit on our skewer and challenged ourselves to try a fruit we had not eaten before. We had lots of fun!


We have been recently exploring traditional tales in Nursery and have begun to retell and recreate our own stories too. We have also had lots of fun taking part in cooking, craft and outdoor activities linked to the traditional tales we have been reading!

I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down!
