Welcome to Nursery


Welcome to our Nursery information page.  Find out more about what we’ll be covering over the academic year, and keep in touch with the latest news.


2022-2023  -  Butterfly Class

Our teacher is Miss Cavanagh

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Bridgestock and Miss Thompson


Our nursery offers a fantastic start to your child’s education. We want our children to become independent, confident, self-motivated and enthusiastic learners. Children are able to achieve their full potential, within a secure, caring and happy environment.


Personal, Social and Emotional


We will be focusing on how to work and play together.  How can we take turns and how to share our toys.  We will use a timer to help us to take turns and you could try this at home too.


We will be thinking about which foods are healthy and why eating or drinking these foods help us to have strong bodies, bones and teeth.


Communication and Language


In communication and language we will be increasing our vocabulary by naming and describing fruit and vegetables.




It is very important that our children develop their self-help skills and independence.  We will help them learn to use the toilet and wash their hands.  We will help them to become independent in feeding themselves; using knives, forks and spoons, trying new foods and pouring their own drinks. Finally, as it gets colder, it will be important that they learn to put on their own jumpers, cardigans, coats and hats.





In Literacy we will be learning the story of Lima’s Red Hot Chilli and answer questions about the characters, objects and events in the story. 


We will listen to the names of the foods and the first letter of these.







In maths we will be comparing objects by length, height and weight.


We will be using our number skills in our role play shop – counting out fruit and vegetables and talking about money.



We have our outdoor learning sessions on Muddy Mondays and children will need to dress warmly and bring their welly boots. 


We take part in PE on a Wednesday and will be playing group games and following instructions.




We will be using all our senses to explore fruits and vegetables – looking at, touching, smelling and tasting new foods and increasing the range of healthy foods that we eat. 

We will be using fruit and vegetables to make healthy snacks.  We will talk about our homes and families and which foods we enjoy eating at home.


In art, we will be selecting the correct colours to draw, paint and model fruits and vegetables. 


We will also be selecting the correct materials to make bags or baskets to carry our fruit and vegetables.




Don’t forget to keep an eye on ClassDojo! 


Look at the photos with your child to discuss what they have been doing at school. 


Watch the story videos and then chat to your child about what happened or who the characters were.
