Welcome to the Ducklings

Nursery at Greenfield


Duckling Class is the nursery class at Greenfield School, with key workers Mrs Coote, Mrs Hodgkiss and Mrs Mills. Every child will be assigned a keyworker shortly after starting in Duckling class. 

The children in Ducklings are taught through play and are provided with new learning experiences, in both the indoor and outdoor environment. The key workers in Ducklings model for the children, encouraging them to imitate and learn new skills. We nurture positive relationships with our parents, involving them in their child's learning and incorporating children's experiences at home into our learning.

During your child's time with us in Ducklings, they will explore different topics and be introduced to counting, colours, shapes, pencil control and many other wonderful new experiences. The children will be supported to learn the routines and boundaries of the class, encouraging sharing and building friendships with their peers. The children will be taught self-care skills, such as washing their hands, toileting and putting on their own shoes and coats. 

We introduce the children in Duckling  to phonics, beginning with learning environmental sounds, for example, animal noises, aeroplanes in the sky, etc. We explore a new letter each week and work through the alphabet, finding different things beginning with that sound. As we progress through the year we will support the children to recognise their own name and some letter sounds. 

We strive to make each child's time with us in Ducklings as enjoyable as possible to enable them to have a wonderful beginning to their learning journey through our school. 


Children are welcomed into Duckling class from 3 years. If you are interested in your child attending our nursery please contact the school office, who will provide you with a Starting Ducklings information pack.


Curriculum News Spring 1

Autumn  Term 1

We have had a lovely start to the Autumn term, we have welcomed new families to our class and all of the children have settled in well. This half term our topic has been Magical Me, the children have been learning about how special they are, similarities they may have with friends and differences they may have, that make them unique. Children have been talking about their families and the community that they live in and the bigger world around them.
We have read The Marvellous Mustard Seed to the children and talked about how marvellous things can grow from a tiny seed, including themselves from small babies to children and eventually adults. The children then created a display of the tree using their handprints.
