Marigold Nursery

Welcome to

Marigold Nursery!


Miss Rainford

Mrs Von Bargen

Mr Riley


Welcome back to a brand-new school year! It is a welcome back for children who are already members of Marigold Nursery and for Mrs Von Bargen but for myself and our new admissions, it is the start of a new adventure! We hope that you have had a wonderful summer holiday and are feeling refreshed and ready for a new term. The start of a new term is always exciting for our children as they meet old friends, settle back into routines and begin a new educational journey. This half term we will be focussing on a new topic titled ‘We’re different, that’s what makes us special’. This topic has been chosen as it holds strong links with one of the prime areas of the EYFS curriculum ‘Personal, Social and Emotional Development’. The children will be finding out about each other’s lives, likes and dislikes, similarities and differences and what makes us all unique and special. They will also discover how they have grown and changed since they were tiny tots.

If you would like to know more about our topic this half term, I have attached our Medium Term Plan below for you to see many of the exciting activities we have planned.

Dates for Diary November - January

Our Halloween Party / Craft Morning 2018!

On Wednesday 31st October our fabulous children dressed up in their scary Halloween costumes and took part in a selection of traditional Halloween activities such as duck apple, pin the wart on the witch and pumpkin carving. They also created a weaved spider web, sparkly witch wands and blow monsters. It was such a special day which I'm sure our children will cherish!

Our Curriculum

Children develop quickly in the early years, and we aim to do all we can to help your child have the best possible start in life. Children have a right, to provision which enables them to develop their personalities, talents and abilities irrespective of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities or gender. In our school we use ‘Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage’ to support us in our planning to implement our curriculum. If you would like more information please visit the following website.


Have you met Marigold Bear?

Marigold is a new addition to our Nursery! Each week a child who has tried really hard to display our school values (Excellence, Friendship, Respect) will be chosen to take Marigold Bear home. The children are really excited to take Marigold on some adventures and to share everything they get up to with their class. 

Home Learning

We have a display board in our Nursery which will be used to keep you informed about what we’re learning each week. There is an additional ‘Home Learning’ board which will be used to display any activities you have carried out at home with your child or any observations you have made of significant milestones e.g. joining in with rhyme or story plots, giving meaning to marks they make as they draw or write, using number names correctly etc.

We urge you to keep us as informed as possible about the development of your child at home and believe that by working as partnership we can achieve great things!
