Nursery

Welcome to our Wonderful EYFS Department.  This web-page is your window into your child's daily school life.   
In December 2016 Ofsted said "Early years Provision is Good.  The thoughtfully planned activities ignite children's curiosity."
We are extremely proud of every child in our department and each member of staff has been hand-picked to ensure that our children receive the best possible start to their education.  Our Early Years Ethos is one of calmness, organisation and is underpinned by positive learning behaviours.  We have a thirst for learning new things and staff professional development is key to the success of our department.

We sing together,
 
We make friends together,
 
We laugh together,
 
We learn together!
 
 
In Acorn Class our Teacher Mrs Walton and our Early Years Practitioners;
Mrs Lally, Mrs Galpin, Mr Pandolfi and Mrs Mahal 
plan engaging and exciting experiences for us.  
 
These experiences help us to learn all about The World around us.  Important friendships are built which create firm foundations that are continued throughout School.

Thank you to all our nursery parents who came to our Family Breakfast and Family Afternoon Tea. Everyone really enjoyed it and it was lovely to see some many Mummy's and Daddy's there!
We have been reading Owl Babies. Thank you to KL Falconry for coming to visit us and showing us their beautiful birds of prey. We met a Burrow owl called Molly, a Hawk called Cody, a Barn Owl called Tilly and a Falcon called Roger.
Our Topic this half term has been Forests and Woodlands. We visited St. Ives in Bingley and we got quite muddy!

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to a new term in Nursery. This half term our topic is Forests and Woodlands. We will be learning about the different types of animals that live in a Woodland. Nursery children will visit St. Ives Country Park in Harden. To enhance our learning we will have visits from a hedgehog sanctuary and a Falconry exhibit. Look out for another Family Breakfast and Afternoon Tea this term.

Family Breakfast and Afternoon Tea
What a successful day we had on the 18th October where over 50 families joined us for breakfast or afternoon tea. 
 
Thank you to Mrs Walton, Mrs Lally, Mrs Galpin, Mr Pandolfi and Mrs Mahal for organizing a wonderful event.
All About Me
During our first half term in Nursery we have been learning all about us, what we look like, where we live and the things that mean the most to us.  A huge THANK YOU to all of our families for sending in and emailing us your photographs for our amazing display.
It has been wonderful to see the children looking really carefully at all of the photographs and has really given the children a sense of belonging to our 'Byron Family.'

Gardening with Mrs Galpin
 
Mrs Galpin is our green-fingered Nursery Nurse.  We love nothing more than spending time with her in our Nursery Garden!  Look at our beautiful fence filled with fresh smelling herbs:
Fund Raising in Nursery
This year we are fund-raising in Nursery for our Outdoor Sand-Pit.  Mr Mahmood (our site manager) thinks that it will cost about £200 to fully fill up the huge area.  We have already raised half of the money that we need by selling playdough that Mrs Galpin is fantastic at making.
