Welcome to Oak Nursery

Where Playing Is Learning ! 

Acorns are taught by Mrs Fiona Sewter - Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays and by Mrs Emma Jeffery on 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 excitied to meet our new friends. We were very excited on Monday when we were sent a message from someone called Time Traveller who needed our help.  His time machine had crashed and he has lost all of his favourite books.  He asked if we could help him and search for them.  We found them in our outside area, unfortunately they were ripped and broken.  We are planning to stick them back together and lend him some of our favourite books.  He promised that he would set us challenges and problems to solve this term we are looking forward to the next one and we are searching carefully for blue glitter to see if he has been to see us!  Please come and look at our Time Traveller display to see how we have been helping to solve the problems he sets us!

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.

Come and look what we’ve found…
This is heavier than I thought…
A little bit of peace and quiet with my favourite book
I want to be a robot
Because two pens are always better than one!
I wonder how many cups I can fill with one jug of water?
The next One Direction is born!
What shall we cook for dinner tonight?
Mmmmm, how am I going to get across here?
Today I’m interested in squares....
... yesterday I liked stripes!
