Miss Quinn and Mrs Houston-Stewart

Welcome to Nursery! Our teachers are Miss Quinn and Mrs Houston-Stewart We are busy welcoming lots of old and new friends into Nursery and learning about how we play together and follow instructions. This half term we are learning all about ourselves and what it is that makes us special and unique. We will be watching the season change from Summer to Autumn at Forest School and will be looking carefully at nature in and thinking about all of the changes that happen to prepare for Winter. We have been having lots of fun doing ‘finger gym’ activities to get our hands ready for writing. We are looking forward to lots of fun and lots of learning this half term!
