Welcome to our Nursery Class here at St Peter's. We look forward to supporting your child on their learning journey.


During this half term we will be doing more work in order to develop skills in different areas of the foundation stage curriculum.

We have already begun Funky Fingers on a daily basis, during which, your child will complete a short activity to music designed to improve fine motor skills. As well as this, we have extra activities such as cutting skills sheets and pencil control worksheets to help Nursery children to improve pencil grasp and control.

During Literacy lessons we will be reading traditional tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, The Gingerbread Man and the Three Billy Goat’s Gruff. A main focus this half term in Literacy is understanding and asking different types of questions in order to check children’s listening skills and understanding. Children will be completing writing each week and beginning to sound out words they are writing using their phonetic knowledge.

Maths this half term will be based on counting up to 20 and back from 10, counting objects one to one, length,/ size, number recognition, as well as work on 2D and 3D shapes. This is in addition to all the different Maths that takes place in the areas of provision.

Our classroom will continue to encourage children to be creative, engage in roleplay, improve computing skills, work together and most importantly improve speaking and listening skills.

We will continue to visit the school library every Thursday to change library books, so your child needs to have their book in school on this day.

It promises to be a very busy half term, especially on the run up to Christmas, but it guarantees to be an enjoyable one.
