Welcome to

Sea View Primary School

Reaching new horizons



Nursery JH

Starting Nursery.

Welcome to Sea View Nursery.


This is the gate we arrive at.

This is the door we go through and where we put our coats.

In Foundation stage we plan and support the seven areas of learning outlined in the EYFS Framework. The three prime areas cover Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. The four specific areas cover Literacy and Mathematical Development, Understanding of The World and Expressive Arts and Design.


Children are supported and encouraged to become independent learners; selecting resources, developing ideas and collaborating with peers to challenge their thinking.


Children participate in small group activities daily to introduce new concepts and develop skills in phonics (early reading and writing), mathematics, thinking skills, problem solving skills and collaboration. 

In nursery we can play in lots of different areas.



We like to explore and play outside

We like to make marks

We have great fun playing in the sand and water.

We create different role play areas to link to stories and interests.

This is the maths area

We have a quiet reading area if you enjoy stories.

For snack we sit with our friends and have milk, water and fruit.
