Summer term 2023


This term nursery will be following the theme of ‘The Great World’ (please see long term overview for extra information).

Some of the stories we will be reading are:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

The very busy Spider

Holidays near and far



Throughout our phonics sessions we will be recapping over all the letters we have learnt (which is the entire alphabet). Alongside this, we will also be learning phase 2 tricky words. These are:

Say 'Hello' to our new January children- 2023

School Behaviour Charter

In September 2021, our school implemented a new Behaviour Policy which is built upon the ‘5 pillars of Pivotal Practice’ (‘When Adults Change, Everything Changes’, Paul Dix):

  • Consistent, calm adult behaviour,

  • Relentless Routines,

  • First attention to best conduct,

  • Scripting difficult conversations,

  • Restorative Follow-up.


We have three simple goals: Be safe, Be a Learner, Be Kind and Respectful.

Long term overview

Nursery text overview



Every child in Nursery is allocated a key worker.  You will be informed of your child's key worker who will;

  • Work alongside parents and carers to ensure that there is continuity of care for the child thus supporting the child’s emotional well-being.
  • Observes the child to identify how they learn through their play, their next aspect of development, what their interests are, whether there is any cause for concern or need for extra support.
  • Keep a record of your child's learning journey and update it regularly on Tapestry.




In the Early Years we have developed a wonderful curriculum which caters for the children's interests.  The overview below contains an outline of the topics we cover, but the content of the topics are adapted according to the needs and interests of our children. To find out more information about our EYFS curriculum please see the curriculum map below.
