Infants

At Fernwood Primary and Nursery School, we believe that all children have unique talents and abilities. We are committed to providing challenge and opportunity for all our pupils to develop their full potential.  

Alongside their classroom provision, our gifted and more able children take part in extension activities designed to extend, broaden and share their skills.

Children talented in sport, art, drama or leadership are also encouraged to develop their skills further through targeted activities.

This page shows a small selection of the many and varied activities that are available to these groups of children throughout their time at the infant school.

If you have a concern about your child or would like more information about our gifted, talented and more able identification or provision, please come into school and speak to your child's class teacher or to Mrs Orme who will be happy to help you. 

During the summer term, we are exploring subjects and professions that interest us.

Our talented Year 2 artists studied root vegetables closely to create entries for this year's Nottingham in Bloom painting competition. Well done to Laiba who won first prize!

We learned how to code simple games and then met with Year 5 Digital Leaders to create a multilevel maths game  for our younger children to play.

Year 2 met with Year 3 children to visit the Lego Brick City exhibition at The Harley Gallery. 

Our spare classroom became a mini Legoland when we built the world's landmarks there!

Year 2 started their exploration of IT by focussing on e-safety whilst emailing. 

They are now emailing each other messages and sharing pieces of their best work.

We will be moving on to explore coding and augmented reality!

Maily is a safe way for children to email between family and friends.

The Great Fire of Fernwood!
