Grangetown Primary

Foundation Stage Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery page. Our class is full of fantastic children who love coming into school to play with their friends and learn lots of new things! 

In Nursery, there are two teachers (Mrs Hanlon and Miss Holyoak) and a teaching assistant (Miss Davison). We offer flexible session times to suit your families needs. Some children access 30 hours provision or 15 hours, which can be split into a morning/afternoon or 2.5 days. We also offer top-up sessions. 

At Nursery, children have the opportunity to play in lots of different areas. We encourage the children to be creative and be willing to 'have a go'. We have access to our large and well resourced outdoor area daily where we adopt the forest school approach.

What do we love about Nursery? 

This week, the children have told Miss Holyoak all the lovely things they like doing at Nursery. Each child thought about what they loved doing the most, then we put all of their answers into one video to celebrate our lovely class this year. I am so proud of them for telling me their idea! I hope you enjoy this video and can spot your child. 


Snow day! (8.2.21)

Today we loved exploring and playing in the snow. We wrapped up warm and made snow balls for each other. We don't usually get much snow so we definitely took advantage of the small amount that we had. 

Spring 1- Early Years to the Rescue 

Each half term we teach through a 'topic approach'. Our current topic is called 'Early Years to the Rescue' which focuses on people who help us and cartoon superheros. Our most recent parent pamphlet can be found below.

We have really enjoyed reading and finding out about the story Supertato. Last week the evil pea stole our water tray and left a video message for the children and a news report. The children helped to find a map of the school and went on the hunt to get it back. Luckily they found it and it was safely returned back to Nursery. Well done everyone!
