Talk is crucial to effective learning not just in the early years but throughout children's education. A 'talk-rich' environment is one where children's level of talk and vocabulary are accurately assessed and opportunities are created for further development and enhancement both indoors and out. Staff in Nursery are dedicated to help all children become effective talkers and Anita is attending a Language for Learning course which will provide a multitude of practical strategies to support children and staff. Parents can also help their children at home by turning off background noise, use short and simple sentences, look at them when they are talking to you and wait for them to finish talking before you speak. For more ideas on how to help your children talk, visit the ~

Nursery's inspirational person is:

Beatrix Potter



Beatrix Potter was an English writer, illustrator, natural scientist and conservationist best known for her children's books featuring animals, such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Jemima Puddle Duck, The Tale of Mrs Tiggy Winkle and The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin, to name just a few. To find out more about this inspirational lady why not visit 


The children will be learning about the difference between an author and an illustrator, as they begin to ascribe meaning to their marks.  

Enjoy stories and talk about the illustrations.

Learn more about their natural environment through our outdoor learning and Forest School activities.
