Our nursery has daily access to two outside spaces. There is a small courtyard where we focus on gardening skills and the understanding of living things. There is also a larger outside space with pathways for riding our bikes and scooters, a mud kitchen for getting messy, a lovely new sandpit and a climbing frame. In the sheltered area children can draw pictures, play musical instruments, or snuggle up and share books in the wicker snug.
We have fun going on welly walks to our school’s Nature Area where we look more closely at living things. We follow the interests of all the children when planning our activities. Children regularly join their key worker groups to explore an activity and develop their phonics skills.
We like to make the most of our local area by going on termly trips to places such as Morrisons, the Heath and the post box. This helps to give children practical experiences that we can use within the classroom.
We complete our nursery session by listening to the story of the week and ending with the goodbye song. We have lots of adults to support us with our learning and playing, they are: Nursery Teachers, Mrs Kay (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday) and Mrs John (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday); Key Workers, Mrs Leighton and Mrs Harrison; and Nursery Practitioner Mrs Hanna.
