Welcome to Nursery.

F1 is a very exciting and nurturing learning environment. We expose children to new concepts, which are woven into teaching and learning. Children flourish from a variety of experiences through a balance of structured learning opportunities and play. 

In our stimulating setting the children have the choice of a variety of activities throughout the classroom, wet area and the outdoor area. We encourage the children to be independent learners: developing their skills across all seven areas of learning.

We plan using the EYFS ‘Birth to Five’ framework and equip all children with broad and balanced learning experiences. 

Follow us on Twitter @nurserykinged to see what the Busy Bees get up to!


In F1 we enjoy learning to count by moving, dancing and singing. During our maths lessons we will also cover; Subitising, 2D shapes/ properties of a shape, number recognition and amounts to 10, size and capacity, one more and one less.


Our curriculum is driven by quality texts. This year we will be using a range of fiction and non-fiction books to enhance the children’s learning. The books we look at over the year will be based on the children’s interests and developmental needs.



In F1 at King Edward we follow Letters and Sounds. It aims to build children’s speaking and listening skills as well as support early reading.
We start teaching Phase 1 in nursery, this is broken down into 7 aspects that are taught over the year. Please click the link below to view the Letters and Sounds curriculum.



Dough Disco

Dough Disco is a big part of F1, this involves moulding playdough in time to music to support fine motor development to develop their writing skills. At nursery the children make their own playdough, if you would like to have a go making playdough at home follow the recipe below.

• 1 cup of salt
• 2 cups of warm water
• 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar
• 2 cups of flour
• 2 tablespoons of oil
• Food colouring


Forest School

Each week we will spend some time exploring Forest School. Busy Bees will be accessing Forest School on a Wednesday. Please can children come to school in old outdoor play clothes (waterproof coat and wellies if possible- clothes that you don’t mind getting muddy!)

Collecting your child

Your child must be brought to school and collected each day by an adult. If you are unable to collect your child and the adult collecting your child is not on our collection record, please inform the school to let them know who will be collecting them.

In F1 we have a morning and afternoon session. AM sessions start at 8:45am and end at 11:45am. PM sessions start at 12:15pm and end at 3:15pm.

30 hours’ children are to be collected at the school office at 2:45pm each day. If your child is staying all day (30 hours) please ensure that they bring a healthy packed lunch.
