Welcome to Otter's Holt




Hello, I am Otto the class Otter. I would like to introduce you to some

special people who are here to look after you.



Nicky is our Childcare Supervisor and a Key Carer



                               Our other Key Carers in Otters are:  Vanessa, Michelle, Katy and Louise                                                     


















Otto the Otter



Otto loves to go on adventures and share special memories with the children from Otter's Holt. Otto has already been on lots of trips and he loves to come back and tell the other children where he has been! Otto packs his bag on a Friday (or your child's last session on your chosen week) with his special bedtime story  ready to spend the weekend or holidays with your families. If you would like to upload some pictures and tell us all about his stay please add this directly to your child's Tapestry account or alternatively Otto has his own special diary that you are welcome to write in and stick pictures of his adventures. We will then share  his stories with the class. If you would like to take Otto home for the weekend or holiday, please speak to a member of the Otters staff to check availability.


                                                                             Dough Gym


Each week we encourage the children to take part in Playdough to Music sessions.

These sessions are run by Charlotte and are a fun way of building and developing the children's hand muscles in preparation for early writing skills.  







What have we been cooking?

Every week we will be cooking something that we can try with our family and our friends at nursery. We will usually choose something that we can cook which can be linked with our story and role play area. If you would like any of the recipes that we have used, please come and speak to a member of staff. Here are some photos of the children cooking their tasty treats.


Here are some of the tasty things that we have made...


Fairy cakes 




Letters and Sounds

The children are taking part in regular listening and attention activities.

These are based on phase one letters and sounds and are planned for and delivered by Vanesssa.


We try to cover as many celebrations and festivals as we can in Otters Holt.

Michelle plans lots of fun activities throughout the year.


Reading and Maths Cafe's

We hold regular Reading and Maths Cafe's throughout the year.

Parents and Carers are invited to join us for stories and activities in Otters Holt.

  • Please make sure that all of your child's items of clothing are named.

Could we please request that children do not bring sweets and chocolate bars to school in their packed lunches. We are part of a healthy Schools scheme and this forms  part of our healthy eating policy.
