Welcome to Nidd Class  

Nursery and Reception

Our Early Years Foundation Stage children in Nursery and Reception work as a team together.

Our Teachers

Our teacher is Mrs Beaumont, we also have Mrs Higginson and Mrs Taylor who work in the classroom.  Mrs Taylor is the class teacher when Mrs Beaumont is not in.

Every morning we come into class and self-register and enjoy our Dough disco session to start the day.  

We come together as a class to do the days of the week and the weather and our very important check in every morning.


Our classroom has lots of provision which is always there for us to use.   It is set up in areas of learning for example the water area, construction area, investigating area and Maths area.  It is very important that we get to explore our classroom and have time learning through play so there is lots of time during the day when we independently choose our learning and our teachers ask us lots of questions and make observations of our learning.  They look out for our interests and then enhance our provision in the classroom to help us discover more about the world around us and challenge our thinking.  

We have a great space outdoors too and we are very lucky to have our own Forest Schools area in school.  We all have the opportunity to explore this area, so don’t forget your wellies and waterproof coat! There is always lots to do outside from digging, building, exploring water and enjoying learning about our natural world.  Whatever the weather we will have lots of adventures outside.

Every day we have a phonics session as well as a session of maths and guided reading.   We enjoy baking and we have a philosophy session once a week. There is a music lady who comes in and teaches us music on a Monday and Mrs Beaumont takes us into the hall to do PE once a week.

Reading is such fun so as well as our morning story, at home time we enjoy a story all together.

On a Friday we love to share our learning with our grownups so we invite them in to join us with our learning and then we have a sing together at the end of the session before hometime.


Dennis’ Challenge

Each week Dennis our class dragon will put challenges in the classroom for us to have a go at.  These are based on our interests and help us to learn more.

Learning journals

All the children have their own Learning Journey folder which can be viewed securely online by parents any time anywhere via Tapestry. In order for you to be able to see and share in your child’s learning, you will need to have provided us with an email address.  This is a fantastic way of sharing information between home and school and we look forward to seeing those posts. A letter inviting you to provide your email and set a password will be provided to you.


We are really excited about the year ahead – please follow our learning adventures on the school’s Twitter account (@CamblesSchool)  


If you can spare any time to come into the setting to help with baking, reading or even just to spend time with the children learning in the setting please let us know.

Because there is so much to do at school, we would like to ask for some help at home too, it is important that time is spent at home every day reading at home and practising sounds and tricky words to help us with our reading so that we can become great writers.

As always, thank you for your continued support in your child’s journey through school and please do ask any questions you may have, no matter how big or small!
