Our Learning

Please browse our galleries below to see what we’ve been up to in Nursery.

The children enjoy a range of mark making experiences, in shaving foam, in personal story books, on tablets, with different materials, underneath and on tables.  We also have lots of fun sharing books and retelling well known stories, on our own, with friends, pupils from the school and adults.

Physical Development

Physical development

We had Somerset Activity & Sports Partnership (Sasp) come and deliver a ‘Full of Beans’ workshop to our nursery children and their carer.  Children and adults all had lots of fun.  Full of Beans is a project aimed at children aged 2-4 and their families. A bespoke programme of four sessions that can be delivered in all EYFS settings with the main aim being to make physical activity fun for all. 

Further information can be found on their website: www.sasp.co.uk/early-years.

Outdoor Play

Playing outdoors changes the learning environment, giving children the chance to engage in physical play, on the balance bikes, digging in the sand pit and developing gross motor skills with wood, tyres, watering cans, pots and pans.  We enjoy playing with the diggers in the sand and gravel, making concoctions in the mud kitchen, building constructions and bridges and problem solving with the cascade.

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

We support and encourage self-help skills such as putting on our own coats and shoes, selecting fruit and pouring our own drinks at the snack café.  Through emotion coaching and our reflection area we nurture the children’s social and emotional behaviour.

Sensory Play

At nursery we get to enjoy lots of sensory (messy) activities such as table printing, clingfilm painting, making our own playdough, shaving foam, water, oats, glitter and much more.  Remember we learn lots while exploring with our hands, and sometimes our feet.


We have begun to prepare our nursery garden for plants, we used our wheelbarrows to collect compost from the school allotment and we hope to grow our own herbs, fruits and vegetables that we can pick when they’re ready.  We have already started to plant some strawberries.

Chinese New Year

Exploring Chinese New Year, making Chinese lanterns, trying Chinese food, using chopsticks, listening to music and dragon dancing.
