Why not come and share a Christmas story in our very festive reading area. It is so cosy!
You can join us any session to share a book with your child here, but don't forget Stay and Play is on Wednesday 5th December. There'll be stories and Christmas crafts for us all to enjoy together.
Our Stay and Play Christmas crafts is ready for all our families. Come and join us.
We are looking forward to the autumn term with so much to do in nursery and lots of exciting things coming up.
We have thinking about The 3 Billy Goats Gruff, but there is definitely something spooky happening around the nursery too! There are story sheets for you to take home in the lobby. Please help yourself and take one home to share with your child. Our book library loan has been set up in the lobby too. Please feel free to take a book home, share with your child and return it to the box. We really hope you enjoy this with your children.
We will still go to the school hall for dance and have stories in the school library on Wednesdays.
Plus, we will continue to go up to Forest on Thursdays so remember your wellies and some warm clothes as the weather starts to change!

Borrow one, bring it back and swap for a new one. Enjoy!
After a charitable delivery of woodchip and logs from Burrator Heritage site, we have developed a natural outside story nook.
With references to the forest school fire pit, we have made a place to share and retell stories in small groups. We just can't get enough of these early reading skills and sharing stories together.
At nursery, we like to allow children to children to engage in calculated risky play that challenges their bodies and builds their resilience. The role of the adult is crucial in allowing children to access this type of play safely and still enable children to take part.
We are learning how to play safely in the forest. We are managing our risks and challenging ourselves in our learning.
The children have been very busy exploring how to make a bridge to get across the grass. We have linked their fascination with the story of the Billy Goats Gruff. There are story sheets in the lobby for you to take home. Trip trap, trip trap, over the rickety bridge!
The nursery children have lots of opportunity for mark making. Their developmental stages are assessed and the children have lots of practice to develop their pencil grip.
