Mrs Chadwick

Mrs Shaw

Welcome to the Nursery class page.

A warm welcome to all our new children and parents. We hope you enjoy working alongside school to ensure your child has a happy learning experience in the nursery.

The Spring newsletter will keep parents up to date with our topics this term.

PE lessons

We have started our PE lessons with the Manchester United coach  on a Wednesday. The children are enjoying moving around, balancing and passing the ball.


Dough Disco

Dough Disco has started in our class. Have a look at our pictures in the gallery.

Physical Literacy

We have started Physical Literacy PE lessons with the Manchester United coaches. Take a look at the gallery pictures. Please send in pumps for your child to wear during these sessions.


Judaism Week

This week we have been learning about Judaism.

We have been learning about the festival of Hanukkah and colouring menorahs. We have used the Ipads to draw and colour the menorah using purple mash.

We have tasted kosher foods such as tea biscuits and matzo crackers. 

We have made dreidels and played a game with them.



During Lent we are sending home a Lenten Prayer book with one child each night. Please take the time to pray with your child using the cross and candle. 

Thank you


Mission Statement Celebration Day - 22nd March 2017


We have had a fantastic day!

We started our day with a special assembly.

Later the drama teacher came into the hall and she was Marnie the magpie. We looked for all the shiny things and remembered that we all have a light inside of us that shines so bright.

A group of our children planted a Magnolia tree with the gardener and we are going to watch it grow as we grow throughout our school years.

We coloured candles to symbolise our light and talked about how we can LOVE, LEARN, GROW and INSPIRE.

All of our nursery children are always letting their light shine.

Today we are all receiving some sweets and a packet of seeds to take home.


Easter bonnet parade

The children enjoyed parading around the hall showing all the children and parents their wonderful Easter bonnets.
