Jesus said "Let the children come to me" We live and learn and love in His way.
Meet our Nursery team.....
Thank you for visiting our class page.
We have two nursery classes; a morning class and an afternoon class. Miss Hastings is the morning class teacher and Miss Coles is the afternoon class teacher. Mrs Froggett and Mrs McElroy are the support staff for both classes and as a team we thoroughly enjoy working together to help nurture and develop the children in our care; ready for their time at school and beyond.
Morning class: 8:45am – 11:45am
Afternoon class:12:30pm – 3:30pm
We have lots of fun in nursery learning through play and we plan activities in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum and follow the children’s unique interests. Our main focus for development is in the three prime areas of learning (Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development), so that the children have a strong foundation to build upon. Each session we start with child-initiated learning time before a short adult-focused learning time. Children benefit from a variety of adult supported activities throughout the session to develop their play, language, listening and attention skills. We regularly split into two smaller groups for our focused learning and share milk and a story as part of this smaller, nurturing group. The children have access to the outdoors each session and enjoy exploring our large garden and allotment area. To support our fine motor development, we have a daily ‘dough disco’ and get our fingers dancing so that we develop the muscles in our fingers and hands ready for writing. Our nursery RE curriculum is underpinned by our School's mission statement: Jesus said "Let the children come to me, We live and learn and love in His way". We start from the very beginning in nursery and teach our children how to join their prayer hands together so that they are ready to talk to God. We learn how to make the sign of the cross and we say our daily prayers and sing songs together.
We hope you enjoy looking at all the exciting things we do on our nursery web page. We try to update this page on a regular basis so please come back again soon to have another look.

Sponsored Welly Walk
Milk and Snack Café
We have introduced ‘Cafe time’ to our Nursery children. The children are learning to sit on a chair, drink and eat with their friends in a sociable manner. We are taking responsibility by opening our own cartons and disposing of them after. The children have been brilliant!
