Saplings - Nursery

Friday 18th September: We have all been busy in Saplings Nursery again this week. We have been using the water area and pouring water using different containers and jugs, we have been learning how to hold our pencil correctly and some of us have tried to write our name, we have been building with blocks, putting our shoes on by ourselves, kicking a ball to each other and turn taking and listening to stories! Wow, so many exciting things! Have a look at the picture slideshow so you can see for yourselves!

Here is the Curriculum letter for the Nursery parents / carers. It gives you information about what we will be learning over the term and some important dates for your diary. If you have any questions please speak to a member of staff.

Welcome back everyone!!!

We are all so pleased to be back at Saplings. We have missed you all. We would like to say a big hello to all of our new families that have joined us already or will be joining us in the next few weeks. We are certain that you will have a fun time at Saplings, learning and having fun at the same time.


If any parents or carers have any questions or concerns then please do speak to one of the staff. We want to make the start of your child's time in Nursery as worry free as possible, so if you are unsure of anything, please just ask.




Friday 11th September: We have had such a fun week in Saplings class. Have a look at the pictures to see what we have been doing! This week we have been using the water tray resources, watching what happens when the cars go down the ramp, working our hand muscles by using the tweezers to pick up different things, writing, reading books, peddling on the bikes, building with the Duplo and kicking the balls. We have been making lots of new friends, and we have been learning how to share and tidy up our toys!



Please bring a bag which can stay on your child's peg with a change of clothes in it - just in case your child is having so much fun learning that they have a little accident with their toileting or if they get wet in the water play. 


Your child needs a drinks bottle that can come to school with water in it ready for snack time. If you can please put their name on it, otherwise we can do this in the Nursery. You are welcome to send a little healthy snack for the children to eat also. Please do not send in anything containing nuts.




Session times are -

Morning session: 8.45am - 11.45am, the gate will open at 11.30am to allow for a staggered collection.

Afternoon session: 12.30pm - 3.30pm (2.30pm on a Friday if you want to collect when collecting older siblings), the gate will open at 3.10pm and 2.10pm to allow for a staggered collection.



Even though we would love to have parents and carers into the Nursery, due to Covid 19 we are asking that parents encourage their children to come into Nursery independently. You are welcome to walk them up to the Nursery door, but please no adults in the cloakroom at drop off or pick up times. Thank you for you support.
