Welcome to Taw Class - Nursery

Teacher: Mrs Short

Nursery is the first step in education for most children for children aged 3-4 years. This is a time when children begin to learn to mix with their peers and learn basic Numeracy and Literacy skills in a creative, hands-on environment.

The work that children undertake at nursery level prepares the children for the EYFS which they will join when they enter Reception followed by the National Curriculum which they will work with when they enter Key Stage 1.

Children’s Book Bags

Book bags should be sent to school every day of the week. Please can you check and empty your child’s book bag each evening as letters are easily lost amongst paintings and pictures.

All Weather Clothing

We spend a lot of time everyday learning outside. During colder weather it is really important that all children have a pair of wellies, a waterproof/warm coat and jumper at school. It is imperative that your child has appropriate footwear i.e. velcro trainers and that everything is named.

Change of Clothing

Please bring a bag containing a change of clothing for your child to each session.  Children can get wet/muddy very easily and it is helpful to have clean clothes should little accidents happen. We would be grateful to receive any donations of spare clothing/ underwear for 3-5 year olds. Parents are also reminded to try to have children potty trained as soon as possible.


We are grateful for any help you can provide, for example, accompanying us on trips or hearing children read.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or things you would like to talk about.
