Rainbows Nursery

🌈Welcome to Rainbows Nursery!🌈

We are a happy, 68 place Nursery for 2-4 year old children.  Our EYFS is well resourced and benefits from a large, fenced outdoor space as well as spacious indoor learning areas.  We are very proud of our caring and nurturing environment. Mrs White is our EYFS lead  and Nursery Teacher, alongside her in Nursery is Mrs Robson who works in the 3-4 year old room and Mrs Jones and Miss Foreman who work in the 2 year old room. In Reception Class we have Mrs White who is the teacher and Mrs Quinn who is the HLTA

In Nursery and Reception we follow the Early Years Adopters Framework which was published in September 2021.  The Framework specifies the requirement for learning and development in Early Years and provides specific areas for learning which we cover as part of our curriculum.

These areas are:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Art and Design

Spring Term

Fun at the farm!

We have loved learning all about birds this week in Nursery, we know that peacocks are lucky in some cultures and that when owls fly they do it silently!




















We have enjoyed exploring our new Sensory Room, making sounds, watching the lights, using the special light board to make marks and pictures and using the soft play!


Autumn Term

We have been learning about autumn and made owls just like our story ‘WOW said the owl!’

We have enjoyed learning about ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff’ and making bridges and puppets to act out the story.
