Arriving on time for your child’s session is very important, as we all learn to sing the ‘hello song’ to learn each other’s names. We then spend a short time on the carpet sharing important news/stories in our learning groups. The children start interacting with each other and this is where friendships can start to form.

The main school day ends at 3.15pm, therefore if you do have other children to collect in the main school, please make sure you collect your Nursery child/children first at 3:10pm.



Please bear in mind when you dress your child that we can get very messy at nursery, through playing outside or inside. Also think about footwear as we do tend to do a lot of climbing and jumping, running, skipping and dancing (wellies are only ideal for outdoors).  As we have mud water and sand it would be really helpful to have a spare change of clothes and appropriate shoes for indoor and out.


Snack Time

To encourage healthy eating we like to offer our children different snacks.  To support us in this could you please occasionally supply us with different fruits, vegetables, crackers etc


Walking Around Grendon

The children are getting much more confident in walking around the village with staff. We promote; stop, look, listen, sensible walking and good road safety.   We often visit the post office and have a chat with the lovely owners who gladly welcome us in. We usually walk back through the fields and look at the sheep and lambs, the children are then able to have a free range and run and scream having fun.


Talk for Writing

We are now learning the ‘Room on a Broom’ story.


Mud, Mud Glorious Mud!

This is what your children will often look like! Unsure about the benefits of getting mucky? Have a look at this article:
