With Mrs Forrest & Mrs Naylor Mrs Hackett


Welcome to our virtual learning platform. On this platform you will find activities planned for the Nursery children by their teachers.

We are committed to making sure that every child has the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. At Intack Nursery keeping children safe is at the heart of everything we do. Safeguarding is everybody's priority.

Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have. Stay and Play dates are on hold at the moment.

Welly Wednesdays- Please send your child in old clothes every Wednesday (we will provide the wellies) as we will be doing some outdoor activities in our Forest School area and it can get very muddy!


On this page you will find suggested activities if you are isolating at home. You will also find activities to help your child if you would like to work with them at home on any activities.

Once you have completed the tasks please send to this email address
