Nursery 2019 - 2020

Miss Corrigan

Welcome to Nursery at St Anne’s Catholic Primary School

A very warm welcome to our school.  For those who haven't been with us in Nursery we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a warm 'St Anne's Welcome'. We are really excited about working with you and your child throughout the year and cannot wait to show you all of the exciting things Nursery will be getting up to.


We would like to introduce our team:  

Miss Corrigan is our new Nursery Teacher and she has lots of wonderful ideas to share with you.  Miss Pilak is our amazing Classroom Assistant, who has worked previously with some of our children.    

In Nursery we will be continuing the experiences the children have had last year and will be continuing to develop their independence even further. During this year the children will experience; visiting the local community, going on a school trip, taking part in PE sessions and getting to know one and other.

As you can appreciate we will have 29 very excited children coming through the door and with this in mind please ensure that all of their uniform is clearly labelled with their name. Whilst the children are encouraged to look after their belongings, sometimes bits and pieces go missing.  If they are labelled we can return them to their rightful owners.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to pop in and have a chat.

BBC Bitesize Starting Primary School is packed full of advice and guidance around applying for school, preparing their child to start school and supporting them during the early days of school life. It covers key areas parents feel they need help with such as toilet training, a good sleep routine and emotional and social skills like making friends and taking turns.

Autumn Term 2019

What will my child be learning in the Autumn Term?

During the Autumn term we will be carrying out lots of fun activities with the children, both indoors and outdoors.  The children will also be assessed during the first half term.  The first couple of weeks in Nursery will also consist of; carpet time activities, finding our names, singing counting songs, investigating the school grounds, meeting new friends and developing a love and respect for our classroom.

Part of our first topic this Autumn will be ‘Owl Babies’ and we are very excited that ‘Owls for Education’ will be bringing a variety of owls to visit our class.  What a lovely learning experience for our children!  This will take place on Friday 13th September.

To help meet the cost of activities in Nursery (baking, messy play, extra snacks and extra learning experiences) we normally ask for a small donation each half term.  This year we are happy to receive £1.00 a week, which can be put in a small envelope with your child’s name on it.

Spring Term 2020

A big welcome to our Nursery children that have joined us at the beginning of this term. They are settling in well and are having lots of fun learning. Nursery have been busy this term so far, learning all about our most recent story 'The Gingerbread Man'. We will be focussing on Traditional Tales this half term. The children have enjoyed retelling the story, acting the story out using props, and sequencing pictures from the story. The children have also loved baking their own gingerbread men and then decorating them. We have also had a new role play area this term, a supermarket along with a 'Costa'. The children have loved playing in this area, we have had some check out assistants, some coffee makers and some children stacking shelves! We have also been learning all about 'Celebrating' in our R.E Come and See programme. We made a visit to St Annes church last week and had a look at our local church.We talked about the different types of celebrations we have; baptisms, birthdays, weddings etc.

In maths we are now focussing on one number a week, learning all about the numbers and different ways of recognising numbers in our day to day environments e.g. house numbers, bus numbers etc. See if your child can spot our number of the week when you are out and about! We started with number one last week and have moved onto number 2 this week.  Please ask your child about their learning and what they have enjoyed. :) 



Wow, what a busy first few weeks we have had in Nursery, the children have settled in really well and have started to form friendships with their peers and getting to know all the staff. We have enjoyed our learning both indoors as well as outdoors, we have had so much fun. We enjoyed our first story 'Owl Babies' and loved getting to see the 'Owls for Education' when they came to visit us in school. We have now moved on to our new story 'The Gruffalo' and are enjoying lots of activities and learning linked to this story. Have a look at some pictures of us having lots of fun learning in Nursery smiley.





 This week we have loved 'painting' outside. We have also enjoyed continuing reading and doing activities around our story 'The Gruffalo'. The children have enjoyed drawing pictures of the characters from the story as well as describing them. We have also loved our 'Gruffalo Cave' reading area, lots of children have enjoyed reading independently in this. We have also retold the story to our teachers by acting it out using masks, this has been fantastic! We have been doing lots of activities to improve our fine motor skills, which we have been really enjoying.
