Welcome to the Whittlefield Nursery page!

In the Nursery Unit our teachers are Miss Ryan and Mrs Summers. We also have Mrs Whitham who supports us each day too! 

We are all dedicated to offering the very highest standards of care in a relaxed and happy atmosphere which is safe and secure, enabling your child to have the confidence to learn and develop in their own unique way. Using the Early Years Framework, we provide a supportive environment to ensure the continuous personal development of each and every child in our care and foster a child-initiated learning approach where we follow the children’s interests which enables us to plan appropriate activities which will form the ‘next steps’ in your child’s learning and development.

We hope you enjoy visiting our page to view all the exciting activities that we are carrying out this term!

2D Shapes

We have been looking at 2d shapes in our classroom and in the outdoor learning environment.

We now know some of the mathematical names for the 2D shapes we have learnt about and decided to use some to create 2D shape rockets! Blast off!


In Nursery, we decided to learn all about Space! We have had so much fun and been very creative!


We have made our very own space rockets using the junk modelling resources!

Printing Techniques

We wanted to create some galaxy inspired backing paper for our class  Space display. We learnt how to apply different printing techniques using crumpets and string with different coloured paints. We also learnt how to apply the splattering technique using paintbrushes and paint! We had lots of fun!
