Welcome to Nursery
A very warm welcome to Nursery
In Nursery we have a strong emphasis on developing communication and language skills. We also encourage children to develop strong relationships with adults and other children. We work closely with Reception and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework that is divided into the seven areas of learning. Much of the time is spent learning through play. We observe children in their play and plan activities that encourage their interests. Nursery rhymes, stories and singing are very important in our curriculum and we plan adult led activities that develop early phonics and mathematics. We support the children to become independent learners and to develop the skills for a good start in Reception.
We work together with parents to ensure all children are, ‘Growing and learning together, as part of God’s family, to be the best that we can be.’

Autumn 1 Term learning -2020
We have had a great start to our Autumn Term. The children have enjoyed getting to know us, each other and their classroom. They have started to settle well and are learning the routine of the morning.
We have been learning lots of nursery rhymes such as The Grand Old Duke of York, Humpty Dumpty, and Incy Wincy Spider. They have enjoyed acting these out as well as creating some wonderful pieces of artwork inspired by them.
We have been looking at colours, shapes and how to make patterns in maths. They have used cubes and cotton reels to create colourful patterns. We have been thinking about the number one. The children have used chalk to draw this number and have had fun finding one object around the classroom.
We have been developing our fine motor skills in the mornings by threading, using peg boards, cutting, drawing and building with blocks.
In R.E we have learnt about St Teresa and why she is important to us. We have also been learning about how God loves us.
We have been thinking about the changes that happen in Autumn. We went on an Autumn walk and looked for the signs that Autumn has arrived. We found pine cones, acorns and lots and lots of different coloured leaves.
