At Pudsey Bolton Royd we are proud to provide enabling environments that spark the children’s imagination and creativity both indoors and outdoors. We develop children’s natural desire to learn and their early years’ experience with us develops independent thinking.

The early years are some of the most important years in a child’s life and education. They build the foundations for life-long learning and are the beginnings of their journey to be the adults of tomorrow. Through our caring relationships with children and their parents, we build on what the children already know and can do.

“You’re off to great places. Today is your day.

Your mountain is waiting. So…. get on your way!” – Dr. Seuss

As a school nursery, we create a stimulating learning environment where children are given a fantastic start to their first years at school. Children acquire lots of skills to support their future learning in the early years and beyond.

By building on children’s communication skills, we support the development of relationships with their peers through play and social interactions. We empower children to be inquisitive, independent and competent learners who successfully take responsibility for their own learning and development.

“It is the supreme art of a teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge” – Albert Einstein

Here is a snapshot of some of our learning journeys in Nursery so far this year.

Nursery have fun in the rain!!

We got our waterproofs on and went out to play in the rain. We had lots of fun splashing and jumping in the puddles.

We also used water colour paint to create pictures with the rain water.


Odd Sock Day! 

As part of Anti Bullying Week we came to Nursery in odd socks!

We used this opportunity to talk about patterns, shapes and most importantly what makes us unique.

Great Outdoors Parent Workshop

Our parents joined us in one of our favourite places … the outdoors! We hunted for colours around the playground, we searched for minbeasts and even used a large scale story map to retell the story ‘Walking through the Jungle’.

Pancake Day 

We celebrated ‘Pancake Day’.

We learnt how to make pancakes and chose our own toppings once they were ready … they were delicious!
