Welcome to Nursery!
2022 - 2023
Welcome to our Nursery, the first steps of your child's learning journey at St Brigid’s.
Every child deserves the best possible start in their education and through parental or carer and teacher support they can fulfil their potential. The Nursery year will lay the foundations to enable your child to become an independent and self-motivated learner throughout their whole school career.
In Nursery we learn through play. Play is an essential component of children’s lives. Through play children learn about themselves, their environment and the world around them. Play helps to develop important skills such as problem solving and turn taking. In addition to this, adults provide well planned activities that are exciting and engaging and that fully take into account the needs and abilities of the children. Nursery children have access to a range of different activities that promote and develop basic skills.
We visited Canon Hill Park with our friends from school and our parents. What a lovely way to end our Nursery year together. We have made some lovely memories.
We have really enjoyed our visits to the Reception class as part of our transition. We can't wait to start in September.
We have been preparing for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee by making crowns, party hats, flags and hand print bunting. We learnt that the Queen lives in London. We made our own red London bus.
We have been learning about habitats. We learnt about the Arctic and which animals live there. We talked about why the animals are endangered. We used ice cubes to think about what will happen if the ice and snow in the Arctic melts.
We love PE lessons with Mr Nta.
We have been working really hard in our phonics lessons to learn our sounds. This week we have been learning i, n, p and t. We used magnifying glasses to hunt the letters we have been learning about.
We have been learning all about animals and their babies in our topic work. This week we have been learning about the woodland. We made clay hedgehogs and thought about how they live in their habitat. We talked about why it is important to look after the woodland so that the hedgehogs can survive.
We have really enjoyed our time in Nursery since returning after the Easter holidays. We have been learning to subsitise and count to 10, practising reading and writing numbers. We have been learning all about animals on the farm. We have learnt the names of the baby animals which are born around Spring time.
Sunday 25th April was Vocations Sunday. We marked the occasion by dressing up as what we want to be when we are older as a way of thinking about what God is calling us to be.
Nursery have had a very busy first couple of weeks and we are so proud of how they have settled in to school life.
We have been having lots of fun painting, modelling with play dough, building, running, jumping and investigating all things to do with autumn!
We are looking forward to lots more hard work and fun over the next few weeks. Well done Nursery for a super start!
