Nursery: Miss Gray

Autumn 1 2021

Welcome to Nursery!


All of our children have settled in so well after the summer break. We are also really enjoying getting to know the new children who have just joined our wonderful school. The children have loved getting to know their surroundings, exploring the indoor and outdoor space and taking part in the variety of activities we have to offer.


This half-term, our fabulous early years team will be playing alongside the children, developing safe and secure relationships which support each child's individual journey in school. Our provision will be based upon the needs and interests of the children, making learning exciting, inspiring and accessible. 



  Please check this page for any updates/ information you may need. 


Staff: Miss Gray (Class Teacher), Miss Ireland (Learning Support Assistant) and Miss Haskayne.


You can also keep up to date on Twitter: @BelleValeSchool @MissFGray.


If you have any questions at all please ask when dropping off or collecting your child.

It is important your child is in school as much as possible in order to reach their full potential, however if your child is in any way ill or showing any symptoms of COVID-19, then they should not be in school. You must inform the school immediately if your child or anyone in the household has COVID-19 symptoms or has tested positive.



Children will be expected to wash their hands regularly throughout the school day for at least 20 seconds, including in the morning as they first enter the classroom. Please show your children how to wash their hands effectively and ensure they are aware of the importance of hand hygiene.

All children in EYFS have access to Forest School sessions. Throughout the year children get the chance to spend time exploring and learning about the natural environment while developing new skills. We will be taking part in lots of fun activities including; den building, using tools safely and outdoor art!
