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 half term holiday and we hope you've all had a restful break enjoying the sunshine!
Our New topic this term is called 'Real Life Superheroes’. The first book that we will be looking at is ‘Awesome Engines -Emergency’. This book will help the children to learn all about the people who help us including Firefighters, Police Officers, Doctors and Nurses. During this topic the children will be encouraged to think about what occupation they would like to do when they become an adult.
In RE we are starting the topic ‘How God Created the World”, we will be thinking about how God created all the wonderful things including us! We will be retelling the story using musical instruments.
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 how to form the letters correctly. These are all things that children should also be practising at home.
We will continue to send your children home with a weekly home learning challenge, please complete the tasks in this book each week. This will help to improve your children’s learning further.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any of the Nursery staff. Thank you for your continued support.
