Rosetta Primary School

‘Nurturing and inspiring every child towards success.’

Welcome to our Nursery Unit

Rosetta Nursery is an integral part of our school and is located within the main school building. The Nursery class has an experienced, fully qualified teacher and nursery assistant; and offers full time places for 26 children, from 8.45 a.m. to 1.15 p.m. The Nursery provides a happy, secure environment where children can develop at their own rate through challenging and progressive play. ETI praised the nursery unit for, ‘Providing rich learning opportunities for children in all areas of the pre-school curriculum.’ Children and their families are welcomed into the life of Rosetta Primary School.


The Nursery class also provides opportunities for the children to grow in self-confidence, develop social skills and to communicate effectively. The children enjoy a wide variety of indoor and outdoor play based activities through which they have the opportunity to develop a range of skills and capabilities. The Nursery Unit has an extensive outdoor area, the Woodland and Adventure World enhance the children’s learning.


September Learning 

In September, Nursery were settling into their new classroom and getting to know their new nursery friends. We explored the different play areas in the classroom and are getting used to the nursery routine. Nursery are learning how to share their playspace and their toys with their new nursery friends. Our theme of learning for September is "Nursery Rhymes". 

October Learning 

In October, our topic changed to "Harvest and the Farm". We learnt about what happens on the farm during Harvest and thought about the different animals that live on the farm. 

November Learning 

In November, our topic changed to "The Gruffalo and Woodland animals". Nursery will be learning the Gruffalo story, through play activities. They will also be exploring autumn and woodland animals. 

In November, we also explored space and being astronauts. Our favourite story to read was "Aliens Love Underpants!"

December Learning 

In December, Nursery have been exploring the different ways we celebrate Christmas. The 'challenge elves' also visited Nursery and had different challenges for us to complete each day.
