Nursery - Shrimps 2020 - 2021

Mrs Nolan

Welcome to our Shrimp’s Class Page!

*****Just a little note about Nursery Home Learning during the Lockdown.*****

(Normal welcome page message below.) 

Hello my lovely little Shrimps,

While you keep safe at home during this lockdown you can enjoy Home Learning activities with your families at home. All you have to do is click on our Nursery Shrimps Class Page, and then click on Home Learning tab, then the first link you see will be that day's Sway. All you have to do is tap on the corner or swipe if you're on a phone or tablet to see each page, the children will then still get to see me and have fun with all the learning activities the same as those children who have no choice but to attend nursery. I will leave some previous days on in case you miss any, they will be underneath the present days. I will delete as we go along. 

Please remember you can email me any time and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can but bare in mind that I will also be teaching the key worker and vulnerable children, along with getting each days Home Learning ready so your reply may not be immediate. I thank you all for your patience. And I also want to thank those parents and carers who have already emailed me to share home learning fun, I really am missing all the children and absloutely love seeing the photos and hearing all that they are doing in their home learning with you. 

My email address is:

I will look forward to hearing from you all soon.

Please keep safe and well, sending you all my best wishes in these strange times, and big hugs for all the lovely Shrimps children too,

Mrs Nolan. 

Hello everyone,

I hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas holiday!

We are looking forward to all the exciting learning fun we have this first half of our Spring term. We will start with 'The Magic of Winter' and then will be learning all about 'People Who Help us', such as the firefighters, police, doctors, nurses and builders.

We have a few changes this term. 

Firstly, we have a new key person in the nursery, Mrs Parker is a very experienced early years teaching assistant who will be with us full time. 

Secondly, our Forest School sessions have had to change to a Tuesday morning, therefore any child who attends on a Tuesday will need to bring their Forest School Kit, which is wellies (with their name written on) waterproof trousers and jacket or waterproof all in one suit, with a warm hat during these winter months.  

Don’t forget, during their time with us the children can choose to play inside or in the outdoor area throughout the day. Inside we have a book and talking corner, a small world and construction area, creative corner, writing and mark-making area, maths area, role play area and a large interactive white board for them to play with. In the outdoor area we have a mud kitchen and digging area, water play, sand play, role play, large and small construction, ball skills, bikes and trikes and many other areas and activities. 

And we have had a good sort out in our outdoor area, we now have more space for den-building and large construction and musical instruments, so might even make a stage and create some microphones to do some shows!

Please remember the children will need to bring a water bottle filled with fresh water each day and their name written clearly on it. The children do have a mid morning snack of a piece of fruit and will be offered a drink of milk or their water bottle as their drink. We do refill the bottles once they have drank all their water as the day goes on. If your child stays for lunch they have the option to bring a packed lunch from home or buy a school dinner, which you can order with us each morning.

We are looking forward to all our fun learning with your lovely children this Spring 1 Term in the Nursery.

Thank you for your kind support,

Mrs Nolan, 

Mrs Bridgwater and Mrs Parker.
