New Nursery Parents 21/22



Hello everyone, this last half term is going really fast and very soon we will be seeing you in school.


In your classroom there is a special area where we like to have a picture of everyone and show their birthday.  Have a look at the video below and you will see Mrs Colwell getting her bauble ready to hang.


By now you should have received a special delivery of your own bauble, complete with a string to hang it.  


Have fun and we shall look forward to hanging your bauble when you start in September.

Lets Paint!


Hello everyone!


Mrs Colwell has been busy stone painting, you will be able to see her painting a lady bird stone on the video below.  By now, you should have received some acrylic paints (great for painting onto stones) and some brushes.  Please encourage your child to have a go at painting their own stone.  We would love the stones to come into nursery with them in September and we can build up a fantastic display outside.

Hello Everyone


We hope you are well and enjoyed planting the sunflower seeds.  We’d love to see how you got on with them, don’t forget to upload a picture to our Facebook page either of your child planting the seeds or your sunflowers as they grow:


You may remember in her introductory video, Mrs Colwell told us all her favourite book was “Chicken Licken.”  By now you should have received a copy for your child through the post.  If you watch the video below you will be able to see Mrs Colwell read the story. 

It’s Story Time!

Hello Everyone


We hope you are well and are enjoying the warmer weather.  

I am pleased to tell you we have now uploaded our next video.  Here you will see Mrs Colwell also enjoying the sunshine and planting some sunflower seeds.


By now you should have received a letter in the post, with a little bag containing sunflower seeds for your child to plant at home.  The seeds are Ring of Fire Sunflowers and can be planted directly into the ground outside 1.5cm part or as Mrs Colwell has done into a pot and then planted into the ground when hardier.  The seeds are ready to plant now and should flower July to September.

We are very much looking forward to all our new nursery pupils joining us in September to begin their learning adventures.


Normally at this time of year, we would start to invite children into school to visit us.  Unfortunately, with COVID restrictions still in place, we are unable to do that at the moment.


However, we still want to ensure children have a smooth transition into school and to help, we will be posting a series of videos here over the coming weeks and sending activities home for children.


To start with, we thought the children might like to start getting to know Mrs Colwell, their class teacher.  Click on the video below to meet Mrs Colwell and find out some exciting facts about her!
