Welcome to our Early Years Foundation Stage.
Nursery and Reception are made up of four classes: Nursery AM and Nursery PM, RL and RS.
Our fabulous teachers are Mrs Fox, Miss Smith, Miss Lundy and Mrs Shenton.
We are also lucky to have our brilliant supporting staff: Mrs Murray, Mrs Binns, Mrs Sullivan, Mrs Saxby, Mrs Atkinson and Miss Scullion.

What we’ve been learning
We had a great day out on Tuesday.
We wallked to Caedmon Hall at Gateshead Library to watch a performance, The Littlest Christmas Elf. It was great!
We also got to experience the first snowfall of 2017.
For National Anti-Bullying week, Reception children listened to the story of The Rainbow Fish. We discussed how to be kind and caring towards each other. We also talked about and practised sharing with different objects.
Miss Lundy brought in a real fish and octopus for us to look at.
As you can see, we were fascinated!
