Nursery 2018 - 2019

Mrs Fletcher

 

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.

A big welcome to all our families who have joined us at St Peter's. We promise that it is going to be an exciting year full of fun and learning. 

 

 

This term we will be...

Getting to know your children

In RE: 

We are learning around the topic 'I am Special'

We are asking the big questions:

  • How do we know that we are special in the eyes of God?
  • How do we know that God is our heavenly father?
  • What are my favourite things?
  • Why are names important?

Have a look at our scrap book so far

Reading: 

Monkey and Me by Emily Gravett

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

Sang lots of nursery rhymes:

Follow the link on Youtube to find some and sing -a-long at home.

In phonics:

We are exploring sounds in lots of different ways and are improving our listening skills. Can you go on a sound hunt at home?

 

What have you been doing at home?

Playing with your child at home and getting out and about is every important to help your child to develop and improve. It would be really helpful if you would help your child practice 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 home with what fun things you have been doing at home. 

A FEW REMINDERS

- 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
