Phonics Workshop

Thank you to those parents who managed to attend our Nursery Phonics workshop. I am glad you found it useful. Here are the slides from the presentation for extra information.


Nursery closed next week for Half Term break. No Holiday Club. Nursery returns Monday 5th June 7.30am for Breakfast Club.

Nursery Sports Day

The Nursery Sports Day will take place on Monday 19th June. Ladybird and Morning Dragonfly children will be taking part in a range of fun sporting activities on the school field between 9am-10.30am. Afternoon Dragonfly children will take part in the sports day activities also on Monday 19th June between 1.45pm -3.15pm. 


More information about the Sports Day will be sent to all parents closer to the event. Family members are welcome at our Sports Day and it would be great to see you cheering your child/children on at the event.

Summer Weather

So that children in the Nursery can still enjoy the outdoor area please send them to Nursery with pre-applied sun cream and additional in their bag so that they can reapply. Children should also have a labelled sun hat and sun glasses.


The children love learning in the outdoor area and as long as they have the correct clothing they can continue to enjoy it in the summer time.


Thank you to those parents who were able join us for our first workshop session on Language and PSED. I have posted the powerpoint  below for you to view. 


Wow’ notes.

As part of the children’s development in the Nursery, we collect examples of how they are progressing through the Seven Areas of Learning: Language and Communication, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.


To support your child’s development and to help the accuracy of our judgements, please try to complete four of these ‘wow’ moments per half term. A ‘wow’ moment would be your child doing something for the first time or showing confidence while taking part in an activity with you. Write a brief description of what your child did on one of the cards, cut it out and bring it into Nursery. We will then stick the ‘wow’ moment into their learning journey and use it to support our understanding of their development

Values Star

To reward the Nursery children when they continue to make 'good choices', we place a picture of them on the 'Values Star' board. At the end of each week, we choose one girl and one boy who have been showing and demonstrating our Values and also following our 'Golden Rules'. Each child then receives a sticker, a small certificate to take home and a round of applause from their friends. With so many amazing children in the Nursery, it is always a hard choice.

Forest School 

Forest School sessions are led by Nursery Teachers and Mrs Watts who is a certified Forest School teacher as well as the class teacher for RF Reception class at Fielding. 


You will receive a message via your MCAS account on a Friday/Wednesday to let you know if your child is attending Forest School on Monday/Thursday. If you child is due to attend Forest School then please send them to Nursery with wellies or waterproof shoes. They will also need a raincoat/shower jacket as the weather does not stop us. 


The Fielding Forest School is located on our school field. Children will have the opportunity to explore the forest and take part in themed and seasonal activities.

Children Bringing Comfort Toys to Nursery

While the children are settling into the Nursery we understand that some children need to bring comfort toys to the Nursery to help them in their settling on process. We encourage the children to keep comfort toys in their bags so that they do not get lost.


If children mislay any items which they bring to Nursery we will attempt to find them and return them. Unfortunately we are unable to spend time looking for items during busy periods in the Nursery. If a child looses an item we will then look for it at the end of the session or at the beginning of the next day. We ask parents if they can please be patient to have items returned and not expect staff to look for items during the session

Supporting Children with Additional Needs

All children may experience some difficulties in learning from time to time during their school life. We aim to provide equal access to the whole curriculum for all children including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).  All nursery staff are involved in the learning and development of pupils with SEND with Parents/Carers involved at all stages.

Mrs Chadwick is the schools SENDCo, she works closely with nursery to ensure that any children experiencing difficulties are able to gain the support needed as early as possible. 


We place great emphasis on identifying pupils with additional needs as early as possible, therefore ensuring a differentiated curriculum to accommodate individual needs and allow maximum access to the curriculum. Where a child has a particular individual need, we will make reasonable adjustments to help them overcome their difficulties which may include additional support. Depending on the identified need this support may take place in class, in a small group or on an individual basis. On occasion, additional support is sought from an external agency such as;

  • School Health
  • Behavior Support service
  • Educational Psychology Service
  • Speech and Language 

  • Occupational Therapy 

  • SEN Inclusion team 

  • Early Start 

  • Family support
