Welcome to Nursery


Welcome to our Nursery at St Mary’s C of E Primary School.

It is the beginning of an exciting and fun filled year ahead.

 The Nursery staff are looking forward to working with both you and your children.

In Nursery we are very fortunate to have three members of staff:


TeacherMiss C Sharkey

Teaching AssistantsMrs P Barratt and Mrs G Hartley


As well as being taught as a class, Nursery also work closely with the Reception staff and children.


We recognise that a child’s first impression of the world begins at home. Therefore it is important that both the Nursery and Parents work together in a close partnership to support your children's learning and development inside and outside the learning environment.

If Parents/Teachers have any issues or concerns, we would like this to be communicated with the staff in order to resolve matters as soon as possible.


Also if your child has positively achieved something at home, please let us know verbally, by writing it down on a piece of paper or by sending in a photograph.


At St Mary's the Nursery staff enjoy every minute in the company of the children by having fun, and by helping them develop their own unique characteristics to form the individuals that they will become.


Everyday is new and exciting as we learn and grow together!






In Nursery we cover a variety of topics. 
Our topics this year are:

  * Autumn 1 - All about me

  * Autumn 2 - Christmas

  * Spring 1 - People who help us

  * Spring 2 - Fairy Stories

  * Summer 1 - Minibeasts and Growth

  * Summer 2 -  The Zoo




Useful Websites to support your children:


We went on a visit to the Church yard and picked up some leaves. We discussed the different seasons and then created hedgehog pictures for our display.

On Friday mornings, we are having Little Bikers in to help with our physical development.

The outcome of this is that the children will become more confident on a balance bike and eventually ride a pedal bike.


Thank you for all your support this half term. The Nursery Team would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Looking forward to working with you all in 2020!


Enjoy the break!
