Welcome to our nursery sign

We are delighted to welcome you to St Pauls Nursery.  Our Nursery offers a safe, caring, secure and nurturing environment where children grow and learn all while having a fun experience.  We strive to ensure a stimulating environment, encouraging active learning, positive relationships and promote independence for lifelong learning.

Learning is play - based which means that on the whole, children choose the activitiy that they would like to do and their learning is supported and extended by adults in the classroom, as part of their play.  Learning also takes place in daily whole class carpet sessions where we cover the EYFS Curriculum and our Religious Education Scheme.  The children have access to both indoor and outdoor provision in all weathers.  The Nursery children also take part in a short daily group activity.  During this time children are encouraged to develop a range of skills including physical development, maths and personal, social and emotional development.  These activities are planned to meet the interests of the children to make their learning memorable.  

We believe that a strong parent - teacher relationship is key to helping your child be the best they can be.  In order to do this we are available to you to answer any questions or discuss any issues you may have.  You can contact us via email, by calling the office, arranging a meeting and through Tapestry.  Tapestry is our way of showing you videos and photos of your child's learning in action and keep you up to date with their progress.  In turn you are able to upload anything you feel is important to share with us.  

Hope to see you soon.

Mrs Thrasyvoulou and Mrs Pell

Useful Documents

The Nursery Curriculum is based around the 'Early Years Foundation Stage Framework' (EYFS) which covers seven areas of learning.  These areas are:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Below are a few documents which you may find useful:

  • 'EYFS Framework' - is the statutory framework for the early years foundation stage
  • 'Birth to 5 Matters' and the 'Development Matters' documents - support the teaching of the EYFS Framework 

Welcome to Nursery Meeting - June 2021 & The welcome letter for our current Nursery children

Transport: November - December 2021

The children have impressed us with the way they have settled and have adapted well to school life.  As we roll into the new half term with the lead up to Christmas we have alot of learning to get through with even more fun and a touch of Christmas magic to add to the mix.

Our new topic is Transport: 

We will be: Exploring different forms of transport; Making our own vehicles; Washing a real car; Learning about transport in the past and the future; Doing tyre rubbings; Making our own hot air balloons and Painting with wheels.  An emergency service vehicle will also come and visit us, I wonder who will pop by?  These are just a few of the things that will be happening in our Nursery over the next few weeks.

Christmas is coming

Christmas is a very special time in the Catholic faith and the Nursery children will certainly be in the Christmas spirit.  The children will be taking part in a very sweet Nativity, along with the Reception class.  Apologises in advance if your children are singing the songs on repeat at home - they are catchy.  We will be learning about the Christmas story and we will be making decorations for our classroom and our Christmas tree.  We might even have a special visitor who rides a sleigh come and see us!
