Nursery 2019 - 2020

Mrs Freeman



At St Peter's, our Nursery department prides itself on exceptional pastoral care and guidance. Our trained Nursery staff ensure a carefully monitored programme of activities that are focused around improving your child’s learning and development. The early years of a child’s life are crucial. At our Nursery we work hard to make every day special for our young children in preparation for the transition into the main school.

St Peter's Nursery staff monitor the progress of their children through the Early Years Foundation stages (EYFS).
As part of the Early Years Foundation Stage, we complete work within 7 areas of learning and development. These are divided into prime areas (Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Communication and Language) and specific areas (Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.)

With access to dedicated facilities both indoor and outdoors, staff create a learning bond that allows children to grow and develop safely, reassuring parents that their child is in a safe learning environment and will be academically confident as they transition into mainstream education.

A big welcome back to everyone after the half term break. We are very excited for the final summer half term. We have an exciting term ahead planned!



This term we will be...

Learning all about the...



Have a look at our topic poster to see what we will be learning...



In RE: 

We are learning around the topic 'Special Places'.

We are asking the big questions:

  • What is a special place?
    • Where is your special place?
  • Who do you like sharing your special place with?
  • What makes a place holy?

Have a look at our scrap book so far


All our learning about 'The Seaside' will be based around quality texts such as 'Shark in the Dark by Nick Sharrat' and 'Ten Little Pirates by Mike Brownlow and Nick Rickerty'.

We have already had lots of fun learning inside and outside:

The nursery webpage will be updated on a regular basis with photos of our learning and activity ideas that you could do at home. Watch this space!

What have you been doing at home?

Playing with your child at home and getting out and about is very important to help your child to develop and improve. It would be really helpful if you would help your child practise these things at home:

- Counting a number of objects

- Counting forwards and backwards

- Recognising numbers

- Reading every night and reading bedtime stories together

- Recognising their name.


Please send the wow cards to school to tell us about the learning that you have been doing at home!


- Please make sure your child has a coat (labelled with their name) in school every day as the weather can soon change. This needs to be a waterproof coat as we use the outdoor area in all weathers.

- Please ensure your child has a pair of wellies to be kept in school clearly labelled with their name as we use the outdoor area in all weathers.

- During the summer months can you please make sure your child is prepared for sunny weather - sun cream applied at home, bring a sunhat and sunglasses.

- Please can all parents make sure that their child’s name is written in all items of uniform and PE kit including shoes and pumps.

If you have any questions about any of the work we are doing in school or would like to know any ways to help your child, do not hesitate to ask one of the Nursery Team.

Thank You
