Hungry Little Minds


A very warm welcome to Nursery Team's web page!


This is the place where we will keep you updated on our school experience, learning and other exciting developments. We will update this page regularly with information and pictures of what your little ones have been up to during their time in Nursery.

During our first half term together we are going to be spending quality time settling children and ensuring that we provide a happy, safe environment where children feel confident to explore and learn.

We understand that our children and families have been through a challenging year so far and we are looking forward to getting back to a kind of ‘normal’. We will do everything that we can to make the start of your child’s time at Shay Lane full of fun, love and learning. We are looking forward to sharing these experiences with you.


Please find below some pictures of our inside and outside areas that your child will be able to access both independently and with adult support...

Number 1 

This week we have been learning all about the number 1 we used our magnetic numbers to find the number 1 some of us even managed to remember our number 1 rhyme and write it on our chalkboards outside. 

Start at the top and down we run, that's the way we make a one 


In Nursery we have been welcoming our new friends to the setting. We have been showing them the areas and getting busy together. 

WOW! Work 

In our first week back we have been looking at Dr Dog: Back to Nursery. The children have done really well washing their hands and following the new rules we have in place. 

Children have settled beautifully into Nursery and are enjoying themselves. 

On Friday we started to read our focus book, Only One You by Linda Kranz that's linked to our topic I am Unique! We have been talking about the word unique and how each and every one of us is different! We have done lots of lovely pictures to make our own school of fish. 

The children really enjoyed using different coloured pencils, felt tip pens and craft items to make their fish. 

Here are some pictures of our work.
