What to bring to Nursery:

  • A named water bottle.
  • Weather appropriate clothing: a waterproof, warm coat in the winter and a summer hat during the hotter months.
  • Our children have lots of sensory play activities and creative activities to join in with. We do provide aprons but children can be in the sensory/messy areas without an apron and are likely to get splashes and dabs on their clothes. We suggest you provide a named bag with a spare set of clothes that can be kept on your child's peg in case of getting messy or having an accident that requires the need for changing. We suggest including a t-shirt, jumper, tracksuit bottoms, socks, underwear and shoes in this bag. 
  • We would advise your child brings a bag to school to make it easier for them to carry their belongings. However, please ensure this is a small bag as we don’t have storage for large bags.

What do I wear to Nursery:

  • White Polo Shirt
  • Navy Blue Crew Neck Sweatshirt
  • Navy Blue Jogging Bottoms

All Aragon Primary logo items are available from - delivery is free if sent via school.

Reading for Pleasure Scheme:

Research shows that children benefit from daily sharing of high-quality stories and poems from a young age: they learn language faster, enter school with a larger vocabulary and become more successful readers (Mol et al., 2008). At Aragon, we value the importance of Early Reading and always ensure every child participates in a daily story session. We want to develop a love of reading both at Nursery and at home. To do this, we have a 'Reading for Pleasure' scheme!

Our Reading for Pleasure scheme enables you and your child to choose a story from our ranging selection of books to take home and share together. Stories provide a great opportunity for discussions about stories and language, and we encourage you to talk about the story with your child afterwards. Talk about the characters, their favourite part of the story, what they can see in the pictures and more!

Every child will be provided with a reading diary where you will be able to record any comments in regard to the stories you share at home, as well as photographs and even encouraging your child to draw pictures relating to the stories they have listened to at home.

What do we do in Nursery?

Your child will be encouraged to make their own choices as well as take part in adult-led activities throughout their time in Nursery. Our continuous provision within the environment is set up purposefully to encourage children’s learning and development to take place through their natural curiosity.​ We observe children individually, ensuring that each child is given the opportunity to learn and develop a broad range of skills through play, based on their interests and level of development. ​​

Children will participate in various carpet and small group sessions each day. These sessions will focus on a range of key learning and skills such as fine motor, early reading and writing, maths, topic-based learning and much more!

Sharing your children’s progress.

Sharing your children’s progress and achievements are vitally important to us. There are a range of ways that we communicate your child’s progress with you:

  • Newsletters: We have weekly newsletters that will inform you of our learning that week and any important information you may need to know.
  • Parent Meeting: You will be invited to a parent meeting within your child’s first term. We will discuss your child’s progress and how well they have settled.
  • Seesaw – Our Online Learning Platform: This was used primarily during the lockdown, but we will continue to use this learning platform to set suggested home learning activities, share important information and inform you of our learning that week. You are also able to contribute to your child’s online account by uploading videos, photographs andd posts.
  • Open Door Policy: All our staff are happy to answer any queries or questions, so please speak to a member of our team when you drop off or collect your child. You can also email and phone us at any time.
