Hello and welcome to Nursery, St. Anthony's class. The class teacher is Miss Palmer; the LSA’s in class are Mrs Rodney and Miss Carmelina. Other adults in Nursery include; Mrs Walsh, Miss Troy and Mrs O'Mahoney.
In Nursery we love junk modelling, so please keep any cereal boxes, egg cartons, bottles and toilet rolls for us to use in class and be creative! There is a box by the Nursery entry gate for you to add any junk modelling too.
In Nursery we love biscuit time at the end of the day! We welcome nay donations of plain digestive or rich tea biscuits for us to enjoy before home time!
This term we will be settling into Nursery, getting to know our new friends and adults in class. We have a home corner with dressing up clothes, a building block and small world area, number and mark making area and a creative area. We also have a super comfy and calming story corner which includes all the best stories and books! This year we will also be exploring clay to support our fine motor skills. We also get to use St Nicholas' classroom during our free flow time which has a sand and water area, as well as construction area and large creative bench. We share our outdoor playground together which includes our climbing frame with slide! We also have lots of bikes to practice pedalling in Nursery, as well as large outdoor building and our very own big red bus!
In RE we will be introducing the Sign of the Cross and our school prayers. In school we pray in the morning, before and after lunch and at the end of the day. We also have a special prayer bear which we will send home with each child to practice their prayers.
In Nursery we encourage independence in all areas and in autumn term will be concentrating on skills such as putting our coats on and using the toilet independently, as well as sharing the resources in Nursery and making friends, using our communication skills.
Nursery also use the online platform SeeSaw, please download this to your smart phones so that the adults in Nursery can send any messages and notifications, this is also a way for you to communicate with the class teacher. Please see the school office or Miss Palmer if you need any assistance with this app.
