Welcome to St Paul's Nursery! 

We hope your child will be very happy here in this very important and exciting first step on their learning journeys.  We are looking forward to working with all Parents and Carers in supporting their children.  Our door is always open so, if you ever have any questions or concerns, do please talk to our staff , we are always happy to help. 

 

Morning Nursery starts at 8.45am and finishes at 11.45am.

 

Nursery Learning Challenges

Ourselves:  Who are the people in my family?

 Transport:  How do we get around?

Winter and Polar Lands: Who lives in the North and South Poles?

Down on the farm:  What happens on a farm?

Africa:  Where in the world is Africa?

Out of this world!   What can you see beyond the clouds?

 

 

TUCK

Tuck money is payable every Monday. your £1 pays for your child to have snack and for any occasional extra bits that may be needed to enhance children's learning, e.g. arts and crafts resources, baking ingredients, party food, role play resources. Unfortunately if we do not receive enough contributions towards tuck, we may have to start providing it only to those who do pay.

 

LIBRARY BOOKS

Every Friday your child will receive a library book to take home and share with you. Please read this story with your child - sharing stories is important in developing your child's early reading skills. Your child needs to have their book bag in school. If they don't then unfortunately we are unable to provide your child with a book.

 

PEBBLES PENGUIN

Each Friday, Pebbles Penguin will be given to someone who has tried very hard to be kind, caring and helpful all week. A book will be sent home for you to record your child's weekend with Pebbles.  This can be in the form of photographs, drawings and writing. Your child will be given a special certificate to keep.  Please bring Pebbles and her book back on the Monday so we can share her news with the class. Every child will have the opportunity to take Pebbles home at some point during the year.

What is the Early Years Foundation Stage?

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standards that all early years providers, catering for children from birth to

five, must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe.  It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children's school 'readiness' and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

(EYFS Statutory Framework (2018)

 

There are seven areas of learning and development that shape educational programmes in the early years.  All areas are important and cross over.  The first three areas engage children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, they help children to make healthy relationships, build an ability to learn and achieve.   These three areas are called the Prime Areas and are:

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development 

The Prime Areas are strengthened and applied in the next four areas which are known as the Specific Areas:

  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design

 

More information on the EYFS curriculum can be found in our Nursery booklet.
