Welcome to Nursery


 Welcome  Planning  Important Dates  Things to do at Home  Gallery



Welcome to our Nursery Class page. Nursery is a time for new beginnings, making friends, and learning lots of new & exciting things each and every day. In our Nursery we aim to provide a caring, happy and stimulating environment for all children. Nursery is a very exciting time for the children where they can enjoy learning through play. Please check our website regularly for important dates and see what we have been working on.

Here is a copy of our Newsletter



  •  Every child must bring a coat to school
  •  Please leave a spare full set of clothes in the Nursery
  •  We use our outdoor provision daily so wellies are essential!
  •  Please label everything!



In Nursery we offer the children opportunities to learn and explore through play during continuous provision which regularly changes both indoors and outdoors. The children learn through both adult led and child initiated learning. Learning through play is essential for a child's development. 

This term we will be learning about Ourselves- All about Me!

At St Margaret Ward we follow the Letters & Sounds phonics programme. The children will be working on Phase Two phonics and will be learning a sound a week. The children will continue to practice the Jolly Phonics songs for each letter sound along with the action. Can you please support your child at home by encouraging them to listen to and join in with the jolly phonics songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Djz82FBYiug
