Nursery Miss Hill

Welcome to Hadrian Nursery!


Hello, my name is Miss Hill, and I am the Nursery Teacher here at Hadrian Primary School. I am really looking forward to learning with all the children in the year ahead. It is going to be an exciting learning adventure!


Here you can find out more about our Nursery, see what our lovely children have been up to and keep up to date with important information.


At Hadrian Primary School we are very lucky to have our own purpose built Nursery on our school site. Children have access to our wonderfully resourced Nursery and fabulous large outdoor area! Nursery is the very first step in your child’s learning journey and we are committed to providing a safe, happy and stimulating first experience of school life.


Our Nursery Staff:

Miss B Hill is the Nursery Teacher 

Mrs D Greener is the Early Years Teaching Assistant, she works with us in the mornings

Miss S Bonar is the Early Years Teaching Assistant, she works with us in the afternoons

Mr D Bingham works with us on a Thursday afternoon.

Miss E Nicholson is the Early Years Teaching Assistant

Our session times:


Morning sessions (AM): 8:45am - 11:45am (Doors open 8:45am-9:00am)

Afternoon sessions (PM): 12:30pm-3:30pm (Doors open 12:30pm-12:45pm) 


Doors will be opened for a 15 minute period for children to arrive into Nursery. Please be aware that when doors are closed, the session promptly begins. We understand that sometimes things don't go to plan and you could be late. We request that if that is the case, then to please go to the main entrance on Baring Street to gain access to Nursery. This is for the safeguarding of the children, and avoids disruptions to the session. At the end the afternoon session, doors will open at 3:15pm to help parents with multiple collections from school. 


If you would like to have a chat about your child, then please let me know. I can then arrange a quiet time and place for us to have a chat.

How we learn in Nursery


The Nursery curriculum is based around the 'Early Years Foundation Stage Framework' (EYFS) which covers 7 different areas of learning. These are:


Communication and Language 

Physical Development

Personal, Social and Emotional Development



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design

Learning is play - which means that on the whole, children choose the activity that they would like to do and their learning is supported and extended by adults in the classroom, as part of their play. Learning also takes place in small groups, or whole class sessions which we plan based around the children’s interests and topics relevant to them such as seasonal change. 

Our children engage in regular Phase 1 Phonics sessions, and Maths sessions to help build their knowledge. These are done in smaller groups.


There is a link to our long term curriculum map in the Parent/Carers information section at the bottom of this page. 

Snack Times:


Children have snack time during their sessions, where they will have a piece of fruit or vegetable, and a carton of milk. There is no charge for this.


We have a Nursery fund, which we use to plan themed days, cooking activities and other experiences for the children. This is 50p a week. 



Seesaw is our online learning platform which we use in EYFS. We encourage you to join so we can celebrate your child's learning journey through Nursery. 

Your child or a familiar adult will upload content to their own secure space, which can then be viewed at school and by your family at home.  Each child will bring home a unique code to enable you to access their online space.  Seesaw also enables you to comment and contribute to your child's online learning journey, something we really value! It really is a lovely way for you to see what we are learning about in Nursery and to stay connected to any messages or key information. There are two Seesaw apps that we use. Seesaw family, which enables you to view work and connect with myself and the Seesaw class app, which is used by your child for learning from home.  

 If you have any queries or comments, please speak to me.
