A note from Mrs Riley:


Dear Parents

It is with a very heavy heart and great sadness that I have to tell you all that I am leaving Hayfield Lane on Friday. As some of you are aware I have been struggling with my health for some considerable time now and it has become increasingly difficult to cope with working, especially with such small children. I am therefore taking ill health retirement. I should like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the wonderful children and families I have had the pleasure of working with over the last seven years, I have many cherished memories which will stay with me forever. Take care of yourselves and hopefully I will bump into some of you in the future. Much love Mrs. Riley x

School Closure- Home Learning


We are very sad to not be seeing you each day and do hope this isn't the way we end our school year however until such times as we are able to return to school this is where you will find resources and ideas to help continue your child's education at home.

A pack has been sent home with the things you will need to help with this. We are hoping the children will use their pack to practise writing their name and numbers each day. There are lots of ideas for Numeracy games to play together too. 

As in school, we have tried to keep these activities fun and practical where possible. We do not expect nursery age children to be working in books very often, perhaps just five to ten minutes a day.


Please remember a young child's learning is through their play!

It is important to have time to play outdoors each day too.

Please keep yourselves safe, our very best wishes Mrs Riley and the nursery team X


This document has some practical ideas for things to do at home.

Mrs Riley

Welcome to our Nursery FS1 class page!


I am the Foundation Stage 1 teacher and my name is Mrs J Riley. I am very lucky to teach the little chicks in 'Robins' class. I am married to Pete and am both a Mum to Joe and Becky and Nannie to my four beautiful grandchildren! I love gardening, shopping, reading and spending time at our holiday home in Wells-Next-the-Sea, Norfolk. 

I teach four days a week and on Wednesdays our teacher is Mrs Huggins.


I have two experienced Learning Support Assistants working alongside me in Nursery Mrs N Oades (NNEB)

and Mrs L Boyer


We have both a morning and afternoon nursery here at Hayfield Lane Primary. The children each receive 15 hours free entitlement and we now also offer additional sessions for you to purchase at the fantastic price of £10 per session. We have a limited amount of 30 hour places available for working parents.

We offer a rich learning environment with fantastic continuous provision to encourage the children's independence and learning.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum we plan and teach activities and experiences for children to learn in a creative, 'hands on', fun way across seven main areas of learning:


3 Prime areas of learning

Communication and Language

Physical Development

Personal, Social and Emotional development


4 Specific areas of learning



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design


Your children will have the opportunity to learn everything they need to know to be 'school ready' and ensure a smooth transition into FS2 Reception.


Play is a child's learning and we have great fun in the indoor and outdoor environments!
