In Nursery...


Our Nursery is a very busy place, with lots of things going on and lots of activities for the children to take part in, both inside and outdoors!
Our Nursery Leader is Mrs Pughsley and her deputy Miss Fox. We have wonderful Teaching Assistants based in there as well. They are Mrs Bates, Mrs Monk, Mrs Jackson, Mrs Hills, Mrs Pritchard and Miss Rayner. There is never a dull moment!
Have a look at our gallery to see what kinds of things we do!
Our Nursery have been busy learning about harvest. They harvested the vegetables from the Early Years garden ready to make a vegetable omelette... but they had no eggs! So, Mrs Pritchard's chicken came to visit and laid an egg! Tomorrow they will make the omelette ready to be followed by today's apple crumble made using apples from the apple tree in the Early Years garden!
