Morning Sessions: 9.00am - 12.00 pm    Afternoon Sessions: 12.30pm - 3.30pm

All day sessions (30 hours) 9.00am - 3.00pm

We also offer an additional 1/2 hour session for 30 hour children at the end of day (£2 a session).

*These sessions can be booked in for the term but cannot be changed once booked in*


The children will need a change of clothes in a draw string bag to stay on their peg in

case of any accidents or if they get wet while playing at Nursery.


In the cold weather the children will still have access to the outdoor areas, so they will need a warm/waterproof coat and suitable shoes.


Children staying for 30 hours will have the option of bringing a packed lunch or purchasing a school dinner.


Monday is our day for Commando Joe training or Forest school.

Thursday is our PE day.

We ask for all children to come to school in joggers or leggings with pumps/ trainers

to ensure they can take part in all activities safely on these days.

Friday is our Library Bus day.

The children will visit the Library Bus for a story and they can take a book home provided that they bring their library book bag to school (bags can be purchased from the school office).

What we are learning in Spring 1

Our new topic for Spring 1 is:


Tell me a story!


This half term we will develop our communication skills even further by finding lots of opportunities to share and tell stories.


We will meet explore many traditional tales and rhymes and this half term we will learn ’There was an old lady who swallowed a fly’ as our ‘talk for writing’ T4W story. These stories will help us talk about our emotions and understand good and bad choices.


Our children will record their T4W story on the radio and listen to it being played out on the playground whilst they have a ‘story picnic’.


We will use stories to explore size, numbers, colours, shapes and sounds. We will work on using a range of tools such as pencils and scissors and encourage mark making in all areas of our Nursery.


Please visit the 'gallery' page to see lots of photos of our fantastic learning experiences.

*At home talk to your child about nursery and their home lives*

We look forward to having another fantastic half term at Nursery! 


Home learning



At Delves we believe when home and school work together to support children they will grow and succeed in a safe and caring environment.

We will use Marvellous Me to let you know all of the WOW moments your child has in school.

 If your child does something fantastic at home don't forget to fill out a WOW voucher star for them and hand them in to any member of staff in Nursery.

You can also email any work, videos or photos to

Please put Nursery or Little Diggers (for the 2 year olds) in the subject heading.
