New Stockport Grammar School Nursery delights youngsters
Stockport Grammar School’s youngest pupils are over the moon with their brand new Nursery building.
The single storey Nursery is within the grounds of the Junior School. With large bi-fold doors, the new development links the inside and the outside enabling the children to fully embrace outdoor learning whilst at the same time benefitting from high quality teaching from fully qualified teachers and Nursery assistants.
The exciting and varied programme for the pupils includes reading, writing and numeracy along with specialist Music, Modern Foreign Languages, Dance and PE sessions, as well as weekly swimming lessons in the school pool, again taken by specialist teachers.
During the first week of the move, our pupils enjoyed the spring weather and headed outside to discover the wide range of activities on offer. They built sand castles, mixed mud, shared stories, splashed around with the water equipment, ran up the mini-hill and made their way through the tunnel with delight.
It was an exhilarating experience for the children as they went on to explore the brilliant bike track, discovered the tree trunks and enjoyed sharing the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ amongst their very own tall trees.
Stockport Grammar Junior School’s Headmaster, Mr Matthew Copping said: “The move into the new Nursery building has created a great deal of excitement amongst the children and staff. Our youngest children in the school have delighted in exploring both their new outdoor environment and also their classroom. Highlights have included the opportunity to explore the wooded area, covered sand pit and the water play area.”
