Welcome to our class page!

 

A warm welcome to St Mary’s!

If you have any problems or queries, please do not hesitate to come and see a member of staff– our door is always open.  Here at St Mary’s we believe communication between home and school is an essential factor for a wonderful learning experience.

 We hope that you have fun listening to the children telling you all about the fun we have in Nursery. 

 

Staff

Miss Bain is the Nursery Teacher and Mrs MacMillan and Mr Wombwell are the Teaching Assistants. Miss Smith covers PPA time.

 

To keep up to date with what is going on in Nursery and around the rest of the school, please go to our school website for all the latest pictures to see what we get up to!

 

Topic 

Our topic for our this half term is ‘Walking in a Story Wonderland’, where we will be learning all about different traditional tales.  We are looking at the characters of the story and retelling the story.  

 

 Reminders

  • Uniform - We ask all children to wear a school uniform. A white polo shirt with either grey pants or grey skirt/pinafore should be worn
  • Spare Clothes - All children should have a bag in school with spare clothes - accidents do happen!
  • Water Bottle – Children should bring a water bottle into school with their name clearly labelled on it. We do ask parents to make sure that the bottle contains only water
  • Names - Please make sure children have their names in all items of their uniform. It avoids tears when things go missing and really helps staff
  • Book Bag - If your child has a school book bag, they can bring home a book from our library to share at home
  • Wet weather Attire - All children need a pair of wellies in school and a raincoat (with their names on)

 

Things to do at Home

  • Phonics - To build up our listening skills, draw your child’s attention to what they can hear around them; the rain, an alarm, birdsong.  Anything is fab!
  • Reading - Read with your child as much as possible and encourage them to discuss their favourite characters and favourite book(s)
  • Maths - Draw your child’s attention to numbers and shapes within their environment. e.g. door numbers, shapes of household items
  • Topic - Discuss family life with your child, including immediate family members along with their visual traits and what makes them so special

 

We look forward to all the fun and exciting things we will be doing together this year.
