Nursery Introduction


Please read this important letter about home learning:

Hello Everyone

Don't forget to check this page at least once a week to see updates on what you can be working on. 

While the children are at home they won't be able to do a full school day of work - that's okay! Try to ensure that your child is happy and that they feel safe. Practice reading every day with you or another adult, or older sibling or indeed by themselves. It is important that children in Early Years ‘talk a lot’ and verbally express their ideas and thoughts as they practice talking in sentences. Try to ensure that they continue to develop skills in maths as everyday life is full of practical mathematical opportunities! Try to work through the activities that have been uploaded to the website and google classrooms.

As well as reading and maths, children should enjoy keeping busy with activities linked to their own interests and have a go at some of the activities in the year group folder or from the  Easter activity passport.

Remember, each day children should make some time to:

  • Read
  • Talk to their family, practise speaking in sentences
  • Exercise
  • Begin to copy some letters from their name and then write their name
  • Practise counting and solving practical mathematical problems
  • Be creative, sing, dance, draw, paint, make up stories, build or make models, enjoy exploring and developing their own interests
  • Have fun




From 6.4.20- 17.4.20, it is the Easter holidays! As a result, you will not be following the usual school timetable. Ms Rice has added some fun activities to the link below.

Have a well-deserved break. Please spend some time looking after your resilience and wellbeing too. There are lots of activities and ideas for this on the website. And keep active, this helps us to remain happy and healthy.

All the best to all of you; may you all stay safe and healthy.

Welcome to Nursery. 

At South Grove Nursery we follow the EYFS curricullum. We aim to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment where all children are encouraged and supported to reach their full potential.

Children are given opportunities to learn through play and 'hands on' experiences both indoors and outdoors. They take part in adult led and child initiated learning activities which deliver the 7 areas of learning contained in the EYFS curricullum.
