Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to St Paul's Nursery Class and all of our new children and parents. We are looking forward to the start of a new and exciting learning journey with your child at St. Paul’s. Normally we have an open door policy to parents but unfortunately this is not possible at the present time.,  However we want to be available to share news about your child. or to  discuss any  concerns or issues that you may have so if you do wish to speak to staff please ring the school office and we can arrange a time for either a phone call or a face to face meeting.

In Nursery we learn through play, both indoor and outdoor. 

We follow the Early Years curriculum with its 7 areas of learning: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Mathematics, Literacy, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Design. Equal importance is given to both our indoor and outdoor learning.

Maths:

The children will demonstrate their skills in using numbers in their play. They will learn to recite numbers within ten and learn to count different amounts within six and within ten. They will learn how to manipulate their fingers to match amounts. They will also learn about the shapes in their environment.

Literacy

The children will be listening to many different stories and information texts. We will be sharing their favourite stories and encouraging them to retell what they have listened to. We will also teach book handling skills; in particular – knowing how to hold a book, the difference between words and pictures, and knowing that print carries meaning. In phonics we will be learning Nursery rhymes, alliteration, environmental, vocal and instrumental sounds and begin learning to hear and recognise phonic sounds.

Communication and Language

The children will learn about the different roles of the speaker and the listener. They will learn how to share talk with their friends and how to ask and answer questions.

Physical Development

Gross Motor: The children will learn how to access the outdoor environment, focussing on how to walk, run, jump, climb, roll, shuffle, turn and balance.  Similarly they will have the opportunity to develop these skills in a weekly PE session.

Fine Motor: The children will learn how to manipulate their fingers to use the play dough, paint, and other materials.  They will learn how to handle tools and how to hold a pencil and crayon effectively to mark make.

How can you help?

You could help your child by sharing books with them and asking them about their day. Encouraging them to be independent will also benefit your child, whether it is teaching them to feed and dress themselves and take care of their own toileting needs. You could also help by making sure your child has a spare set of clothes in school at all times and that all your children’s clothes are labelled.  Your child will also need a pair of outdoor wellingtons in school too.

We are really looking forward to getting to know you all and are excited to be here at the start of your child's learning journey.

Thank you

Mrs Cullen
