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. 

We are archaeologists!

We are botanists!

Our talented artists have been given the challenge of designing and painting a book bench for Nottingham City's Hoodwinked project this summer. Watch this space to see how the bench is progressing!

Congratulations to Alina whose design was chosen by School Council and Mrs Orme to appear on our bench!

Our runners up!

Children are following their own interests. 

Will they be historians when they grow up?


Year 1 have been investigating STEM challenges - coding, electronics, animation and engineering.

Our Foundation children are being challenged by Mrs Roe who has been making them think very hard!

Year 2 children joined with their Year 3 counterparts to explore the world of technology and engineering. They programmed their lego models to move, change colour and sense eachother during a STEM workshop.
