Welcome to Cherry Tree class,

Cherry Tree class teacher is Mrs Hickman and the teaching assistants in our class are Mrs Reilly and Mrs Caine. Our class is made up of 3 and 4 year old children. Our children attend AM or PM places or 30 hours per week. Our aim in Nursery class is to provide a happy and engaging environment which enables our children become effective learners and responsible citizens.


We have created our own EYFS curriculum which meets the needs of all of our children. This has been informed by the Development Matters 2021 document which is largely language based. We focus on our children's interests to inform our planning, as well as using key questions to support and guide learning. Additionally, children have access to an indoor and outdoor continuous provision which enables them to explore and get involved in numerous learning activities.

Below are a couple of websites which you could use to help with home learning ideas over the school year:

As mentioned above, we follow our children's interests to inform our planning but we do have a long term plan prepared with key inquiry questions and suggested texts, poems and songs which can support these. We implement our inquiry questions if our children are not showing any particular interests at the time. You could focus on these at home too!
