NURSERY 2019 - 2020

Mrs Wilding

EYFS Teacher

Welcome to Nursery

Please follow our Nursery class on Twitter for updates, photos and news!


We are excited to welcome our Nursery class of 2018 - 2019. We have lots of fun in our Nursery and learn so much in this very special first year at Holy Family Catholic Primary School. Here is some information that you may find useful.


The staff in Nursery are Mrs Wilding and Miss Simms. Please talk to any of the Nursery Team if you need to share any information or have any concerns.

Times of the day         

A.M Session - 8.45am -11.45am  

At present we do not have any afternoon Nursery provision.      


It is important that you collect your child on time at the end of the session as children often become distressed if they are collected late. If you are running late, please contact the school office by phoning 0151 7 09 3672.


Breakfast Club        

Breakfast Club is FREE for all children. It starts at 8am each morning. Nursery children who attend breakfast club will be taken to their class at 8.45am.



If your child is ill, please inform us by phoning the school office on 0151 7093672. Please ensure that school has your up to date contact details in case your child is ill during school.



Our children enjoy continuous snack each day. We ask for a contribution of £1 per child per week to make sure this can continue. Snack money needs to be paid in cash please on a Monday morning. Please give to a member of Early Years Staff. 



Please ensure all items of clothing are labelled, including coats and shoes. It is very difficult to identify lost items of clothing if they are not labelled.


Children are not allowed to bring their own toys to Nursery as this can cause upset. However, we love to see things that the children have made at home or have found whilst out and about. These items can be bought into school to share with the rest of the class.


In the EYFS Unit we love to inspire creativity and our modelling area is always a popular area. If you have any recycling materials at home, please pop them into the large box under the shelter.

After completing our ‘Welcome’ topic we will be looking and discovering another fait: Islam. We will learn about the customs of the religion and how special times are celebrated. We will then begin our ‘Advent’ topic leading us through to Christmas. We will be learning about and re enacting the story of the birth of Jesus and roleplaying it in our school nativity which we hope you can attend. 

Our talk for writing focus this half term will be ‘town mouse and the country mouse’ we will be learning and role playing the story as well as writing about the two places and pour own homes. We will go for a walk in our local area to observe and hear the noises of a town. As we progress further through the term we will be preparing for Christmas festivities and celebrations and children will be encourages to write price tags and receipts in our gift shop, then labels and cards in our elf workshop and finally letters to Santa and cards to family and friends. 

We have been learning lots through counting so now we are going to use our knowledge and apply it through shape and space. We will make arrangements such as trains and houses, we will count the properties on different shapes and sort them. We will continue to measure through baking activities but will also be encouraging the children to compare items and say which is the longest or shortest in a group.  

Through our book we will be comparing two places: the town and the country. We will be talking about buildings seen in both, food in both, smells and noises in both. Children will be encouraged to talk about what they like and dislike and think about the similarities or differences to their own homes. We will talk about the special times we have shared and intend to share during this terms celebrations.  

In Pe will be learning lots of new skills as well as using the soft play equipment. We will be using our outdoor area to build and balance. We will use our funky fingers and formation station to make the muscles in our fingers stronger and take part in activities to promote this in small groups.  

This half term we will be focussing on handwashing and taking care to kill bugs on our hands as part of our ‘ E-bug’ curriculum and for ‘ Anti biotic awareness day. We will be wearing odd socks for ‘anti bullying week’ and listening to Bully busters tell us how the change begins with us. We will continue to build on skills that are becoming well established such as turn taking, sharing and excellent behaviour.  

We will be using lots of different forms to represent bonfires and fireworks. We will then also make representations of poppies in the paint and playdough. We will be using the instruments to make sounds like fireworks. We will use junk modelling to make town houses which will be displayed in our classroom. Later in the tern we will make Christmas cards, wreaths and advent calendars to take home.
