Nursery School


Welcome to Badger Room!

Badger Room is our 2 year old room, which is lead by  Rose, Katie and Leigh. Our children attend for 15 hours a week, either every morning or every afternoon. Take a look at our class page to see some of our learning!




What has badger room been up to during Autumn 2023?


We have enjoyed exploring pumpkins! We have used small pieces of pumpkin to paint with, helped Mary make pumpkin soup to eat around the fire at one of our forest school sessions, we joined our friends every day for 1 week to complete our hedgehog walk, in aid of Norfolk Wildlife Trust, we even had to rescue a baby hoglet we found during our first morning walk! We made our own hedgehogs out of playdough using googly eyes and sticks to create the spikes.


We went on a nature walk - all of our friends really enjoyed exploring the local area to find treasures in nature. Discovering the sound, smells, textures and patterns on things we see in the woods. 


With the help of our friends, Rose and Katie we have been gaining more and more confidence in exploring the garden.

Pumpkin Carving Stay and Play

Snack Time!

Snack time is a part of our daily routine in Badger room. There are lots of learning opportunities for the children:

  • Snack helpers help to prepare and give out the fruit.
  • The children count the fruit, making sure there is enough for everybody.
  • The children begin to order the fruit by size, and compare the different sizes, shapes and colours.
  • Having milk, water and fruit every day teaches the children about healthy eating.
  • The children pour their own drinks, helping with the development of their hand-eye co-ordination. 

On Pancake Day we had a go at making our own pancakes. As you can imagine, things got very messy!

We love messy play in Badger Room! Sensory play is great for brain development, development of motor skills and language acquisition.
