Welcome to Nursery!
Welcome to St.Agnes Nursery. The class teacher in Nursery is Miss C Dias the Nursery Nurses are Faye Kitchener and Mabel Chan and Teaching Assistant is Mary Leahy.
In nursery we follow the Early Years Foundation stage (EYFS) Framework. We base our activities around the seven areas of learning which are:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Art and Design
Our activities are largely child initiated, where the children choose the activities they wish to take part in. We also have daily carpet sessions and small group adult led activities.
Literacy carpet sessions in nursery are largely based around storybooks. The children become familiar with stories and characters and begin to learn there are different types of books. We teach phonics in line with the ‘Letters and Sounds’ frame work.
This is nursery’s daily timetable.
9:10am- School starts
9:30- Free flow (Children can choose to play inside or outside.)
11:20- Storybook work/ phonics (Carpet session)
12:45- Outdoor play (staff set up for afternoon session)
1:35- Numeracy (carpet Session)
1:45- Free flow (Children play inside or outside)

Music is taught by Mr Mathurin twice a week in nursery. (Mondays and Tuesdays)
Religious education (R.E) is taught in Nursery. We follow the ‘Come and See' framework.
The children have their own WOW book. Children’s work and photos are kept in these and are sent home every half term for parents to add to it. The WOW books are available to take home as often as a parent or child wishes.
