As you know Tapestry is a wonderful app used by the Early Years Team. We use it to document children's learning journeys in school. We love it when you view our in school learning and add your comments! 
Remember you can use Tapestry at home to share any learning or experiences from home. We always love to hear for you.  Click on the image below to access a guide
to explain 'The why and how of adding observations; for families using Tapestry at home.'
If we are forced to conduct home learning due to COVID 19 we will be using Tapestry to share home learning activities. You will be able to access these using 'memos'. You cannot view 'memos' on the app, you need to access Tapestry via your internet browsers to see the memos sent by teachers. 

Thank you to all the parents who attended the Nursery Reading Workshop. For the parents who were unable to attend please click on the link above to see the power point presentation.

Summer One Term 2022


Our Topic this half term is ‘Growing.’  In our Literacy lessons, we read the stories Jack and the Beanstalk and Jaspers Beanstalk. The children then planted various seeds and have observed them growing.

They have been looking after the seeds carefully and learning lots of new vocabulary. We are now waiting to see who has grown the tallest beanstalk! 


Look at what arrived in Nursery at the beginning of the half term...Eggs !!! We were so excited to watch and see what would happen. It didn't take long before the eggs started to crack and the chicks popped out !! We had 9 eggs and 7 hatched. 


We've had a wonderful time learning all about Winter. From walks around school and looking for signs of Winter, to learning about 'ICE' and watching it melt. 

All about Autumn

Well what a half term we have had, from Autumn walks to learning all about Owls. Its been a fun packed time and we have learnt so much. We collected lots of leaves and sticks and twigs to create nests for our Owl Babies and the children also drew some fantastic pictures and playdough models.

 New Nursery


And so a new year begins.....Welcome to all our new Nursery children, we are looking forward to a fun packed year.



Nursery have loved listening to the stories, Dear Zoo and Hairy Maclary. After listening to the stories, we then learnt about which animals would make suitable pets and how we would look after them. The children shared photos of their own pets with their class mates and we even had a visit form a gecko and some leaf insects. The children also loved creating some kennels for our pet dogs in our classroom too! 

Spring Two Term 2022

World Book Day 2022

Well what a fantastic day the Nursery had. From dressing up to drawing our favourite book characters and finishing off the day with a story read to us by Mr Holcroft.

Spring One Term 2022

Working Hard

This half term the Nursery have worked so hard. They  have experimented with shapes, became shape detectives searching for shapes all around the Nursery and created some fantastic dragons using 2D shapes.

Autumn Two Term 2021

Remembering Special times 

The Nursery have enjoyed learning about Special Times which happen throughout the year. The children drew some beautiful poppy pictures which help us remember the fallen soldiers. We also created some Diya lamp clay pots when looking at celebrations from around the world. 

Autumn One Term 2021

First Day Fun


First Day at school pictures.....Cheese.

We are looking forward to having lots of fun and making memories.

The Queens Platinum Jubilee

Celebration Day

Well what a wonderful day we have had celebrating and learning about the queens jubilee. First, we learnt all about the Queen, where she lives and how old she is. Then, we made Union Jack flags using our finger prints and the children created cards and crowns independently. The children then made wristbands and participated in our class street party! 

Smithills Farm 2022

What a way to end the half term with a day trip to Smithills Open Farm, and what a day it was. From the moment we arrived the day was fun packed. From Donkey and tractor rides to Pets Corner. Not forgetting fun on the park and watching the cows being milked.

Chinese New Year

The Nursery finished their learning about Chinese New Year with some tasty Chinese food. The children cleared the plates and bowls and wanted more !! 

All about Christmas

What  a Christmas we had, from visits from the man himself to Party day. The children loved  Father Christmas and couldn't believe he actually landed on the school roof. Christmas Experience... the children loved making gifts and treats to eat. They also danced their socks off on party day.
