 Welcome to our Nurture page.

Nurture Staff are Mrs Aubrey and Miss Myatt

smiley In Nurture we all work together as a team. We support the children so that they can develop into independent learners.

 We enjoy learning with the children whilst having lots of fun and laughter along the way!

'The Den' is run every afternoon from 1:10 -3:10 pm.  Nurture is to support children who will benefit from working in smaller groups and they work at their own individual levels. 

This term we are exploring:


Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson

 This book is about three characters who become friends and share a shell.

We will be exploring this book about kindness and sharing.

We will also use it to learn about lots of different other

things, for example Rock pools and the animals that live in them.
