Morpeth (Mrs Dillon and Miss Stephenson Nursery)

Welcome to 'Morpeth' - Nursery Class Page.


Book bags will need to be brought into Nursery daily once we are allowed.

Thursday is usually our book day but due to COVID-19 we have had to put this on hold at present.

We usually open our doors 15 minutes early at home time so that you can choose a book with your child to share at home together. They must be returned each Thursday in order to receive a new book.


We will be visiting 'Forest School' which is on site each week.

We have some waterproof suits and wellies at school but if you would like to send some into school for your child this would be great. Please send these in a named carrier bag.

Also stay up to date by logging onto 'Tapestry' to see your children's observations and videos - Please speak to a member of the Nursery staff if you are unable to access Tapestry.
