This section of the website will be here to give you termly overviews of what we will be covering at school and key information.  Please check our windows for regular updates and messages.


We are looking forward to getting to know all of our new Ladybird class members. We start off the year with a project called ‘Who am I?’ where we will be getting to know each other and celebrating similarities and differences. This term is very much a settling in term where the children become used to the routine of the day as well as forming relationships with other children and the Nursery adults. Throughout the project we will be looking at many different stories and singing lots of familiar songs. The children will have opportunities to engage in activities that are based on these stories and also tailored to the individual’s interests.

Towards the end of term we will invite parents and carers to ‘stay and play’ so that the children can show all the things they like to do within the setting. Look out for a notice on the windows soon for times and dates.

The most important thing during this term is that your children feel happy and confident coming into their class, and that we get to know your children in order to make their nursery year at West Town Lane a fantastic adventure.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff; there will be lots of us around!  

Some things to remember:

Don’t forget to label all of your child’s bits and bobs.

We’ll be using the outdoor environment whatever the weather! Please provide appropriate clothing.

If you need to speak to a member of school staff please wait until the beginning/end of the day, alternatively, please call the Office.


We are a rights respecting school.
