Nursery 2020 - 2021

Our Blog Page Nursery

I would like to give a warm welcome to all of our children, both our older 2nd year children and those who have just started with us this year.

Within this half term we will be looking at the topics ‘Ourselves’ and ‘God’s wonderful world.’ We offer many activities for the children to investigate, both indoor and outdoor throughout these topics. We also provide many learning opportunities to develop number and fine motor skills.

We encourage you to bring your child into the Nursery each morning to help them settle. There are arrows on the footpath for you to follow which will lead you to our new Nursery entrance. Please come and speak to us if you have any concerns or questions, we are always available to chat on either side of the day.

Please ensure your child is in school by 9:10. This is to make sure they settle into their day comfortably with their Nursery friends and they do not miss their story group learning activities.

Each Friday we take the children to our school library. At this point in time we will not be providing a book for your child to take home. When we can do this again, we will let you know and it will have to be returned the following Friday. On Thursdays a coach associated with Manchester City comes and teaches the children PE. After this the children have ICT lessons with Mr Edmondson, who is our school computer specialist teacher. Look out for the children’s work on our school blog, as Mr Edmondson posts their work on there.

Your child does not require a school book bag or PE kit, but if you wanted to buy a school jumper / cardigan / fleece, you can do so using Parent Pay. If you feel that your child might need spare clothes in case of an accident, please feel free to leave a bag on their peg with them in.

We are now using an app called Really School to track what your child has done throughout the day. You are able to download this app and check it regularly. You are also able to add information and pictures from home to show us different things that you do while not in school. We would really love to see this as much as possible!

We are doing everything we can to ensure the Nursery is a safe and clean environment for your children. Thank you for entrusting us with your child at the beginning of their education, we promise to do our very upmost to provide the best possible start in their school lives.
