Welcome to  Nursery's Class Page...

Welcome to our class page. Here you will be able to see all the exciting learning that happens in nursery. You will also find  information about supporting your child with their learning and upcoming events. 

The staff you will meet in Nursery are Mrs Mottram (class teacher), Mrs Bhatt (Early Years Practitioner) and Miss Zwager (Early Years Practitioner).

We are all really looking forward to getting to know you and your children this year.






 (Oct 2018)

 This half-term we are going to be thinking about all the amazing possibilities our imaginations can open to us! We are going to be having a dressing-up shop,so we are going to become Princesses, Pirates, Cowboys, super heroes and maybe even Scooby Doo!?!

We will be exploring numbers, patterns and shapes, thinking  about friendships and even going on a trip to the moon! There will be other fantastic things happening, but only our imaginations will limit us!

Of course at the end of the term we have CHRISTMAS!! 

It's going to be another busy one!!


(Sept 2018) 

 "Marvellous, Magical Me!"


This half-term we are going to be looking at ourselves, and all the marvellous, magical things we can do...such as seeing, hearing, touching, tasting and smelling! We will also be introducing the class to our 5 Cranborne Super Learner Sidekicks and their super learning behaviours.

We will be spending a great deal of time during this first half-term getting to know your children and making sure they are settling into nursery life, introducing our rules and routines to them, and ensuring they have a happy, stress-free time with us each day.
