Welcome to Oak Nursery

Where Playing Is Learning ! 

Acorns are taught by Mrs Fiona Sewter - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays and by Mrs Caroline Machin Thursdays and Fridays. They are supported by Mrs Andrea Smith, Miss Kim Hines and Mrs Laura Bennett.

We are really pleased to be back at Nursery after the holidays and are excited to meet our new friends. We are learning all about Bears at the moment, we love the story "We're Going on a Bear Hunt!" and this term we are learning to be like our friend Paddington the Explorer. We are looking forward to telling you about everything we find out!

Learning in Oak Nursery

At Clyst Heath Nursery and Community Primary School we strive to foster a love of learning, a strong sense of curiosity and the determination and resilience to persevere and succeed within our youngest children. To achieve this we have a team of highly skilled teachers and teaching assistants who are passionate about early years education and share the belief that ‘play is truly a child’s work’.

If you would like to know more about the Early Years Foundation Curriculum, the ‘nuts and bolts’ of what your child will be learning at Nursery, then click on the EYFS Parent Guide document located on this page.

Please take the time to have a look at some recent examples of our learning and if you like what you see come and visit us—we have regular open mornings which are always advertised on our website.

Wow! What have we found here?
Look! A triangle.
That is a lot of candles on your cake! I wonder how old you are?
That's a very big number you have written there!
It takes a lot of practice to walk on stilts.
I can help you.
Taste this, it's chocolate!
Or maybe you'd prefer pizza!
