Welcome to

Moon's Moat Nursery!


Welcome to Class AM.

We are a nursery and reception class.

Miss Mazgajczyk is the teacher, Mrs Reid is our Nursery Nurse and Mrs Burgoyne is our Foundation Stage Leader. The children may sometimes work with Mrs Burgoyne, Mrs Cheshire and Mr Clissett who work in the Foundation Stage too.


Please email nursery@moonsmoat.worcs.sch.uk or phone to contact us with any questions or queries.


In our class, your child will learn and explore through play and active learning. They are encouraged to follow their interests and develop their confidence, independence and self esteem. They will have a balance of adult led activities and child initiated activities during their sessions. We look forward to sharing your child's learning journeys with you as they learn and develop at home and at nursery. Please upload any photos of things that you do at home to Tapestry. We would love to see them!


Welcome to the Autumn Term!

Our new topic is:

This year we will be taking part in a program called Every Child a Talker. It has been designed to improve the skills and expertise of the early years workforce in early language development, and it aims to raise children’s achievement in early language as measured against the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile.

Can you find different ways to make 4, 5 and 6 using objects to help you?

Can you say when two groups of objects have got the same amount?

If you have got a dice at home, roll the dice and then count out that many objects. Perhaps your grown up could draw dots instead if you haven't got a dice.
