21st June 2018

Hello! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Mrs Grant. I am the Nursery teacher and also the Forest School Lead.


I’m sure you will have noticed there have been some changes to the grass area at the bottom of the main playground. We received a Lottery grant to plant trees, bring in natural resources like tree trunks and large stone boulders and put up a lovely willow dome. The area is used most lunch times.  The children have been finding insects, making dens, shelters, bracelets and many more exciting activities.


Two afternoons a week I take out small groups of children for Forest School. We do lots of things including learning how to use tools safely, playing team building games and toasting marshmallows over a fire. Have a look at the school blog if you want to see some of the things we have done this year. If you would like to learn more about Forest School please come and talk to me.


Looking towards September I’m excited to let you know we still have part-time places available in Nursery. Children aged 3 or who will be 3 before September are eligible for a place. Please make sure to let your family and friends know and if they or you would like to apply please speak to the office staff.


Please also take note of the Nursery/Reception Stay & Play on Friday 6th July where normal Nursery will be closed


Have a lovely weekend

Miss Grant, Nursery Teacher and Forest Schools Lead
