Welcome to our Nursery page!
The Nursery at St. Theresa’s is seen very much as a partnership between home and school. We hope that your child will be happy, make friends and learn to do lots of new and exciting things.
The Nursery (and Reception Classes) are part of what is called The Early Years Foundation Stage of Learning (EYFS). Children in the EYFS follow a special Early Years curriculum.
We want our Nursery to be a happy place, where your child can feel safe and secure. For this reason, children will be allocated their own Key Worker. We will make it our responsibility, firstly to help your child settle into the Nursery, and then to give them on-going care until he or she moves on to a school Reception class.
Learning Through Play
In Nursery the children learn through playing, talking and doing. We provide well planned, carefully structured activities which provide enjoyable and fun experiences which help children to think, to increase their understanding and to improve their language skills.
Through their play, children are fully engaged in being curious, creative, exploring and investigating, experimenting, testing, finding solutions and making decisions.
Collective Worship in Nursery
Autumn - Religious Education in Nursery
Our Autumn Learning Journey in Nursery
Spring - Religious Education in Nursery
We have been learning about The Good Samaritan and thinking how we can help our friends in Nursery. We enjoyed listening to the story of Jesus and the Fishermen and we tried to catch our own fish and thought about how much trust and faith they had in God when they left their friends and family to follow Jesus.
We have also been ‘Walking in Theresa’s Little Way’ by doing small acts of kindness with our friends.
We will be continuing learning how we can be good friends just like Jesus wanted us to be.
