Nursery 2019 - 2020

Mrs Andrews



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 break. We have had a very busy and exciting half term.  We have now got to know all your children and what their next steps are to move their learning forward.  

This term our topic is Animals. We will be learning about different animals and where they live, what animals make good pets and which ones don't.

In RE we are starting the topics 'Special Times’ and 'Christmas'. We will be looking at how we celebrate special time with our families and why Christmas is important to Christians.  We will also be practicing our Christmas nativity play for parents to come a watch.  There will also be another visit to our local church at the end of the term. 

Our first book this term will be ‘Dear Zoo’ by Rod Campbell.  This book will introduce us to what animals make good pets and which ones don’t.  We will be describing these animals using words like ‘fierce’ and ‘grumpy’. 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, recognising and copying our names. These are all things that children should also do at home with parents and older sibling.

 We will continue to send home WOW cards for you to tell us about the amazing things that your child can do at home. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any of the Nursery staff. Thank you for continued your support.
