September 2023


Welcome to Ducklings Class

Nursery Teacher: Miss Savannah Hopkins-Simon

Learning Support Assistant: Mrs Gladys Mante 



Our weekly and daily plan is heavily influenced by the lines of enquiry that the children are interested in pursuing.

Staff are continuously assessing the children, ensuring that every child is gaining the experience and skills that they need, to ensure successful outcomes and to prepare them for school.


Daily essentials that are needed in Nursery


  • A clearly named water bottle
  • A named bag containing spare clothes
  • A packed lunch in a named lunch bag or box (only for children staying all day)
  • Please ensure that packed lunches do not contain any nuts or nut products, including Nutella
  • Named outdoor clothing
  • Named wellies
