Our current books

England (England) on: England Blog

In Nursery we are reading 3 important books at the moment:

Penguinpig is a story about a little girl who chats online to a stranger at a zoo. When she arrives to meet her online friend it turns out it isn't a Penguinpig at all, but a large scary bear who wants to eat her. The little girl talks to her parents who explain how to stay safe on the internet. 

Oi Dog and Oi Frog are two books which focus on rhyming words. Its all about where animals sit. Dogs sit on Frogs but Mr Frog is not at all happy about this and goes about changing the rules!

This week we launched our new online profiles called 'Tapestry'.  If you haven't already done so, please complete and return the parental return so we can set up logins for all parents/carers.  You may also add a childminder to your child's account.

Our children have noticed the staff suddenly using tablets. Many of our children have been looking through their observations already and have commented on what they have been doing. Please look at your child's tapestry account with them at home and share any comments which they make.

Thank you, 

Mr Tunnell

Welcome back!  We hope that you have all had a wonderful holiday and you’re ready for the term ahead. 

School places have now been allocated for children moving to Reception.  We will begin transition on children over the next few weeks.  We will begin by taking small groups into Reception to get them used to the environment and the resources.  Staff in Reception have not been set yet for 2017-18, so we are keeping these visits short and centred around the room itself.

We will send out a transition newsletter in the next few weeks.

We have spent a long time trying to improve out outdoor area over the holidays.  We have moved a lot of the furniture away and set up a much larger loose parts area.  This allows children to be creative about constructing anything from obstacle courses to farms.

We have also introduced a mud pit so children can continue to create ‘mud pies’ in the woodland kitchen.  Please remember to send your child to school with spare clothes and wellington boots where possible.

Thank you,


Mr Tunnell and the Nursery team.

Our children have been very interested in growing and minibeasts over the last few weeks. In response we bought something special from Amazon and it arrived in the post.

We carefully tipped the worms out into their new homes.

Worms need darkness,moisture and food such as leaves.

Come and check out our worms!
