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 (Purple group keyworker)
Mrs D Greener is the Early Years Teaching Assistant (Blue group keyworker)

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
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Learning is play - based 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.
There is a link to our long term curriculum map in the Parent/Carers information section at the bottom of this page.
Getting Ready for Nursery
Seesaw is the fantastic online learning platform we have started using in EYFS from September 2022. 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.
