Nursery 2020 - 2021
WELCOME TO NURSERY!
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.
I would like to start by welcoming all our families back after the lockdown and to say how proud I am of all the children. They have been amazing on all of the ‘LIVE’ sessions and completing all the activities that I set during our home learning. I am also amazed at how they have settled instantly on their return to Nursery.
We are starting this term with the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen. We will be learning about the different place that the family have to venture through in order to find the bear. We will be learning new words and their meanings for example, forest, narrow, gloomy and deep. We will also be learning about positional language using words like under, over, on top to describe the position of something.
In RE we are starting the topic ‘Easter’, we will be thinking about why Easter is such an important time for Christians and also thinking about the word ‘love’. We will be learning why the cross is so important and why there is a cross on a hot cross bun and we well get to taste them!
Throughout the term we will be listening to stories, singing nursery rhymes, learning to recognise numbers, counting a number of objects, counting forwards and backwards, learning to write our names and form the letters correctly. These are all things that children should also be doing at home.
We will continue to send your children home with a ‘Home Learning Book’ please complete the tasks in this book each week with your children. This will help to improve your children’s learning further. The work will also be posted on Google Classroom, so please ensure you login to this each week.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any of the Nursery staff. Thank you for your continued support.
