Love, learn and live in Christ!

Dear Parents and Carers, I know the summer holiday will seem like a long time for those of you who have not been able to be in school during Lockdown but myself and all the staff wish you all a great summer and we cannot wait to see you all in September! Keep checking the homepage and the class webpages for information as we post it. I will text you when we have uploaded the information about September protocols. Until we see you again- keep smiling and keep staying safe!



There is no compulsory uniform for our Nursery children, however we strongly recommend our parents/carers send their child in:

·         dark blue jogging bottoms

·         white polo shirt

·         dark blue jumper/cardigan/sweatshirt

·         white socks

·         sensible trainers or shoes (no sandals/open toed shoes – bear in mind they will be climbing)

Our Emotional Bank Account

This week let's be helpful and look for opportunities to make emotional deposits to people in our family!

How can you help someone at home? Can you help to set the table? Try and say something kind to someone in your family. Can you get dressed by yourself ? Can you make your own bed ? Can you always remember to say thank you ?


LIBRARY DAY is Friday ...........Don't forget to let your child choose a book and you can enjoy it together at home. A big thank you to all the parents who have kindly donated books to our library, this wonderful resource would not be available without your constant support.If you haven't donated a book and would like to, please talk to a member of the Nursery Team.

BOOKS, BOOKS and more BOOKS  ..........reading is the best !!!  

Please try and read with your child daily. We try to foster a love of books and stories in the Nursery and your child will gain so much from having you read with them and show them that books and reading is important and enjoyable.   

We LOVE books!

This term we are looking at our favourite stories. Please allow your child to  bring in their favourite book to share and talk about at Nursery. We will be making a display of our favourite books. Thank you.

                                                                KIND REMINDERS

So your child has as much fun as possible and gains as much independence as possible, please remember ;

  • Dress your child in clothing and coats that they can manage themselves
  • Sensible footwear, no sandals, flip flops, crocs or open toed shoes
  • Trousers or shorts to be able to access roktagons and outdoor climbing
  • No expensive clothing or coats they will get dirty and children do get anxious
  • Wellingtons in winter or wet weather- you can leave labelled wellies at Nursery
  • Encourage your child to become independent in using the toilet, it boosts their confidence and self esteem and gives them independence in the Nursery

The Way the Truth and the Life

 This term our focus is  The Church 

Know that Jesus is present in a special way in the tabernacle and we can visit him.

The tabernacle and sanctuary lamp.  

When we see the red light we know that Jesus is with us in a very special way.

We kneel  down on one knee in front of the tabernacle as a way of saying hello to Jesus.

See if you can learn some of verses from Share the Light.



Check this Box each day for an activity to complete, don't forget to add it to your child's tray.
