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).

Our new topic for Autumn 2 is:

Elephant Parade!


This half term we will continue to support your child to  develop their ‘Prime’ areas of delvelopment:

Personal, Social, Emotional Development (PSED), helping your child feel settled and make new friends,

Physial Development (PD), encouraging your child look after their self care needs, such as toileting,

Communication and Language (CAL), providing opportunities to support your childs listening and speaking skills.

During this topic we will focus on the ‘Specific’ area of development Expressive Art and Design (EAD).

In this topic we will be exploring colour and light. We will be finding out all about animals, and how to care for them using ‘kind hands’. We will have the exciting experience of meeting real animals with ‘The Animal Man’.


We will meet the patchwork elephant and a colourful monster in our story time when we read ‘Elmer’ and the ‘Colour Monster’. This half term we will practise these stories and learn ’The Colour Monster’ as our T4W story. These stories will help us talk about our emotions and understand that it is okay to be different.


We will invite our grown ups into our Nursery Inspire workshop so they can share in our wonderful play and help us explore colour further. We will make colourful ‘Elephant Lanterns’ for our ‘Elephant Parade’!


We will explore 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.


We will also practise a range of Christmas songs  to get ready to perform our Christmas Concert on Monday 9th December 2019.


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.

Take a look our learning so far


New photos coming soon with our new Nursery children.
