Welcome to our Nursery Class Page. Your Teachers are Miss Osborne and Mrs Mather. Your Teaching Assistants are Mrs Mahon and Mrs McIntyre.
Our Nursery Provision
Our dedicated Nursery provision is led by qualified teachers and teaching assistants and is an integral part of the school allowing 3-4 year olds to flourish and develop within the caring and calm environment. Located in its own spacious purpose built section of the school, the Nursery has its own safe and secure outdoor play area offering extensive opportunities for stimulating play and exciting exploration.
We aim to ensure your child develops significantly within the EYFS framework so that they are very well prepared to enter Reception and thrive throughout their school life. We accept 52 children each year who join over a phased period in September. Please see admissions section to apply.
Please provide your child with a spare change of clothes on their peg. Helping your child to dress independently you can encourage them to put their own coat, socks and shoes on. We also ask that you provide a clean water bottle clearly labelled with your child's name. This will be sent home daily. Please label all children's belongings and if possible, wear velcro fastening shoes. It is very important that you update your contact details regularly in case we have to contact you.
We have a weekly PE session on Thursday morning with Sid from Sports Point. We play a selection of fun activities and games to develop gross motor skills.
NM: 9.45 - 10.15am
NPO: 10.20 - 10.50am
Admission to Nursery
Admissions to the Nursery class are currently administered by the school and application forms are available from the school office. Alternatively, you can download the form here. If your child has a Nursery place, it does not automatically mean that they will attend The Willows Reception class. You must still apply to the local authority if you want your child to attend our Reception class.
Rights Respecting Schools
At The Willows Primary School, we are committed to placing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of our core values and ethos; believing children’s participation is integral to all aspects of school life. The result is a raised sense of security and self-confidence which allows them to take the next step in advocating the rights of children everywhere.

Talk for Writing
These books link in with the Primary Writing Project. This is where we have been learning actions and using story maps to retell and create our own stories. If you want to find out any more about Talk for Writing you can find more information on:- www.talk4writing.co.uk
As part of our Non-Fiction cycle we will design our own recipe to make a gingerbread man. We will look at different recipes and discuss what ingredients and what we will need to do for the instructions.
