Welcome to Pre-School's page. Here you can enjoy looking at photos of our learning and access games and websites that can help to take the children's learning further. 
Pre-School Staff:
Mrs Pickering (Lead Practitioner)
Mrs Lomas (Deputy Lead Practitioner)
Mrs Saha (Teaching Assistant)
Ms Morel (Teaching Assistant)  
Our topics during the autumn term:
Dinosaurs - first half
Transport - second half 
As well as enjoying stories, rhymes and songs linked to our topics we will help the children to investigate some non-fiction aspects too. There will be lots of opportunities for role play, craft and creativity, and plenty of outdoor activities. 
Our visits to the nature area are on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. 
We play on the school field on Tuesday afternoons and Friday mornings. 
Please provide your child with a pair of named wellington boots for these sessions as the grass is now often wet and the nature area is becoming muddy. Thank you :) 
Keep an eye on our school blog for updates and photos. You can follow us on Twitter too at @ShirleyP_S and keep in touch by emailing us at
