We are really looking forward to a new term and a new academic year! We hope all of our families have a had a good summer. We hope the children are ready for lots of new experiences and lots of fun! 

In the Nursery, children learn through purposeful play whilst supported by caring and creative adults. The resources and environment both inside and outside are carefully planned to reflect all the areas of the EYFS curriculum.  Topics and themes are planned in response to the children's interests, learning styles and stages of development. As well as following the children's interests 'in the moment', we make sure that they have access to a wide variety of enrichment activities such as visitors, trips out and about, Forest Schools and woodwork. 

We know that it is really important that we work in partnership with parents/carers so that the children can have the best possible experience in Nursery. Please talk to any member of the team if you have a question or email Miss Lillywhite bid.lillywhite@bellefield.wilts.sch.uk 

We will keep you updated with regular newsletters but please make sure you speak to us if you have any questions.

In the Early Years at Bellefield, we nurture the whole child and want our children to develop their skills and knowledge across all of the areas of learning. Click here for a link to the Development Matters document which explains the areas in detail. 

We also work hard to ensure our children grow to be........

  • Happy and engaged.
  • Confident and independent.
  • Curious.
  • Risk-takers and resilient.
  • Empathetic and kind.
  • Confident to communicate. 

Have a look at the photos and spot these characteristics in our amazing children!

 Some of our activities from last year......

On the 27th April we were visited by Kris from 'Tropical Discovery'. He brought a range of amazing creatures including hissing cockroaches, a giant millipede, a snake, a tortoise and a tarantula. The children learnt so much and were really respectful and curious. See below for some  wonderful pictures of this enriching experience!
