Nursery 2019 - 2020
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.
We would like to start by welcoming all our families back after the half term break, we cannot believe how fast this year is going!
We are starting off this new half term with our topic ‘Under the Sea’. We will be learning about sea creatures and thinking about how they move and swim under the water. We will learn the names of sea creatures and think of words that we can use to describe them.
In RE we are starting the topics 'Stories Jesus Told’ and 'Easter'. We will be listening to stories that Jesus told others. We will also be learning why Christians celebrate Easter and why it is an important time of year for Christians. There will also be another visit to our local church at the end of term.
Our first book will be ‘Shark in the Park’ by Nick Sharratt. This book will introduce us to rhyming words. We will be learning how to recognise a rhyming word and then how to continue a rhyming string e.g. cat, bat, rat, mat. This is something that parents could help children to do at home! Throughout the term we will continue to listen to stories, singing nursery rhymes, learning to recognise numbers, counting objects, counting forwards and backwards, recognising and copying our names. These are all things that children should also do at home with parents and older sibling. From this half term when children are able to write their first names independently and form most of the letters correctly they will receive a special certificate and a reward. So please encourage the children to write their names at home at least once a day!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any of the Nursery staff. Thank you for continued your support.
