Welcome to our Nursery page!

At Forefield School Nursery we love to learn through practical, fun and meaningful experiences. We focus on developing core skills to help us as future learners. We spend lots of time outdoors developing our physical skills, bodily control and co-ordination. We also learn how to be good listeners and confident speakers. In Nursery we play lots of games which help us to become good friends.

We currently have three sessions in the Nursery, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and one whole day session for children entitled to the 30 hour offer. During these sessions we have whole class carpet time and key worker times when we work in smaller groups. We have lots of time to explore, learn and play in the Nursery environment both indoors and outdoors. We learn to be independent learners in the Nursery and develop lots of key skills.

Mrs Evans is the Nursery teacher. She works with Mrs Mc William who is the Nursery Nursery for all sessions. Mrs Harvey is the key worker for children who attend Forefield Nursery all day, and Mrs Porter supports children’s learning in the Nursery in the afternoon sessions.

Summer 1 in Nursery

In this half term in Nursery we have been learning all about growing. We have been busy enjoying learning in the outdoor area and planting lots of seeds. We have been learning about what seeds need to grown and now we wait to see if our seeds start to grow in the different fruits and vegetables ready for us to eat. Whilst we waited for our own seeds to grown we had lots of fun bringing in some  vegetables from the shop and creating our own vegetable shop in the Nursery garden. We explored the different vegetables and even had a competition to see who could find the biggest potato!

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one half term we also had a special delivery of eggs to take care of. We whilst we waited for the eggs to hatch we learnt all about the life cycle of a chick and how they develop inside the egg over 21 days. It was very exciting waiting and eventually 5 baby chicks hatched out of their eggs and spend the last week of the half term in Nursery before returning to Acorn Farm.
