Welcome to our Nursery blog ...

In our nursery class we work hard to offer a nurturing and supportive learning environment for the children to thrive and grow. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum with an emphasis on promoting the characteristics of effective learning.

This approach fosters a love of learning and provides challenge linked closely to developmentally age appropriate experience. We strive to create an environment where the children feel confident to explore and discover new things.

As a Nursery, we understand that all children are unique and understand the importance of following their individual interests.

By following our nursery blog which we hope to publish on a weekly basis this will allow us to inform you through words and pictures how we promote your child’s learning in the nursery, it is also a great way for you to discuss with your child at home what they have been doing each week.

Well it was all happening this year for the Christmas lunch ! The children enjoyed a fabulous Christmas dinner with all the trimmings cooked on site by our wonderful cook Sam and then had some very special visitors ! 
Rudy two and Ted popped in to wish the children a Merry Christmas! It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to get up close to the reindeer and ask lots of questions and give them lots of pats and attention. 
Huge thanks to Enchantment Cornwall for bringing them over to visit !

Wow what a performance!  So, so proud of all the children as they learnt their nativity perfectly and performed it to a packed out church! 

Especially proud of our little ones as it’s very daunting having to stand up in front of so many people and say your lines and they totally smashed it with confidence and smiles ! 


Christmas wishes !

Nursery and reception class enjoyed a magical afternoon visiting Bedruthan Steps Grotto.
They started the adventure in Tumetot village and met Astrid and Tomtee elf and started the quest to save Christmas, they journeyed into Festlig forest and helped find the special rudolf and spent time making decorations, they then burrowed through the snow covered corridors to enter the snow pit and meet the ice queen that explained they needed to find the magic key for Santa’s sleigh, this proved great fun with snow everywhere! The journey concluded in Santa’s grotto with the children totally captivated by Santa and his elf’s and proceeded to tell him all about their Christmas wishes - what a wonderful age !

The children thoroughly enjoyed exploring the first frost of the season, it provided some great opportunities for mark making and practicing writing their names, even if we did all end up will chilly fingers !

EYFS had a wonderful morning off exploring at Cedar Croft nurseries , they learnt about Grandis, White Pine and Blue Koreana Norway Spruce , Nordmann Fir and Noble Fir Christmas trees and were able to touch and smell the different varieties. 

Some had beautiful aromas–the true smell of Christmas! Who knew there were so many varieties ?! 
After impeccable behaviour around the plantation they were each given a little gift and went to warm up with shortbread and hot choc ! 

Massive thanks to Cedar Croft for a wonderful trip and we can all fully recommend a trip there to pick your tree :)

We have moved ! 

Our new nursery and reception class is now all set up in the canteen building so that we have continuous access to the school filed to enable frequent  forest school sessions and outdoors learning.  
Please can reception children drop their belongings to the nursery before going up to KS1 class to do phonics everyday apart from Tue where they will be in KS1 class for the whole day and enjoying PE in the afternoon. 

Nursery children will need a named set of waterproofs and welly boots to be left in class please.

We are really looking forward to an exciting half term and this week we are starting with the adventures of Meg and Mog and of course pumpkins! 

Don’t forget fancy dress on Thursday for some Halloween fun!
