Holmgate Primary School and Nursery

Welcome to Nursery (FS1)

EYFS Practitioners: Miss Edwards and Mrs Thacker

Welcome to Holmgate Nursery!

We are very excited that you have chosen to join us at Holmgate Nursery. Whether your child attends the setting for a couple of sessions or a full week, we hope that they enjoy the start of their learning adventures with us at Holmgate.

Autumn Term in Nursery

We currently busy welcoming our new children into Nursery and are very proud of how well everyone has begun to settle in. The children are beginning to make friends and have been receiving many stickers for their good behaviour and fabulous learning.

 Adventure Thursdays

Every Thursday your child will take part in Outdoor Learning in our wooded grounds with us. They will need to come to Nursery dressed in warm clothes and wellies. Please make sure that you do not mind if these clothes get dirty during the session. Your child will also need a warm and waterproof coat as well as hat, scarf and gloves in the colder weather. Please pack a change of clothes and shoes for your child in their bag so that they can be changed if necessary, this can be uniform but does not have to be.

Nursery Library Bedtime Bags

We are pleased to announce that Franklin the Dragon’s Lending Library will be restarting this term. The children will be able to borrow a bag containing a teddy and a small blanket along with the book they choose from the library shelves. They will be able to swap their book for a new one each week on a Friday and tell Franklin all about the one they have been sharing at home.

Downloading the following apps will be of great benefit to you: See-Saw to see the fun your child is having at Nursery learning with their friends and School Jotter to keep up to date with the News and Information sent out by school. Details of how to download these will be shared with you when your child starts with us. 

If you have any questions about your child’s time with us at Nursery then please do not hesitate to speak to us when you drop off or collect your child. We are looking forward to getting to know your child and helping them to develop firm foundations in their learning over the coming year.
