Please take a look around our Indoor Areas:
Our book corner is a place where children can sit quietly and enjoy a book. They learn how to turn the pages from the front to the back of the book. They learn to look after the books, placing the books back on the shelf when they have finished reading them. We have a wide selection of books in Nursery but only have a small select few in our area each week. These are changed regularly to keep the children’s interest.
Block Play Area
Our block play area is a space where the children can let their imaginations go wild and create anything they want to. We have a selection of large wooden ‘Community Playthings’ blocks, mid-sized blocks and small blocks. We have some natural pieces of wood to enhance the Community Playthings blocks too. Also within this area, the children can access tubes, steering wheels, fabric, rope etc. to support their building work.
Our Computer Area has two new computers for the children to use. A printer is connected so that the children can print out their finished pieces of work. We have a wide selection of software for the children to use.
Within our Creative Area, children can help themselves to a wide variety of media and materials to support their work. Model making, clay work and painting are just a few of the activities which take place in this area.
The children can roll, squeeze, twist, cut and squash the dough….to name but a few. The area is enhanced with different cutters, rollers and objects each week. The dough can be varying colours, textures or may have different smells added
Our role play area changes each week, depending on what the children are showing an interest in. It could be a house, hair salon, hospital, supermarket, vets, castle…….anything that we could possibly imagine.
Sand Play Area

Small World Play
The ‘Small World Play’ area is an area where the children can imagine themselves in another world. They can become an astronaut, farmer, princess, fairy, train driver or anything else that takes their fancy! Within this area we have fabric, cartons, masking tape, string, fences and many other things to help the children to create a scene for their small world play. Again, a small selection of resources is available from our wide variety of resources and we change this area regularly to reflect the interests of the children.
