Love God, Love Learning, Love One Another




Some of our children stay for their dinner. They bring their own healthy lunch and access the snack area to eat their lunch. The children spend time talking to their friends and talking about their interests.

We have been using our physical skills to use the scooter, balance in the two wheeler and push the tandem bike. We also use our fine motor skills to mark make outside. Today we have been making marks with chalks.

This week in nursery we have been exploring sounds, sounds in the environment and musical instrument sounds. We have used the musical instruments to sing our favourite songs too!

We are using our mathematical skills in nursery by accessing our new maths focus area. Pop in and have a look at the activities available to use.

In nursery we display children work on our ‘Learning Journey’ wall. We encourage the children and parents to add to this wall. The children’s work is displayed to celebrate their achievements and have a sense of pride. We then work with the children and put their work in their own learning journal. We have a parents board with our weekly planning, notices, wants and needs requests on it and newsletters. We also promote ‘healthy eating’ through our ‘Healthy’ display in our snack area.

In nursery we listen carefully to instructions given by Mrs Luckman. We sing our song and all find a space for carpet time. We say our morning prayers together, all showing respect and then we are ready to start our day.

Picasso in the Making!

We have been so creative in Nursery! Have a look at all of the wonderful things we have created


Sensory Play!

The have been enjoying lots of sensory play this term. They have enjoyed exploring with cornflour and lots of other malleable materials.


Ice Ice Baby!

We have been exploring. The children have been touching and feeling the texture and noticing the change as the ice melted and the natural resources became loose. While enjoying this activity the children learnt about the world around them. They also developed skills of moving and handling as they picked up the ice. This then led to them developing their vocabulary as they tried to describe what they were feeling. Most of all they loved playing alongside their friends and giggling together as they shivered from the cold.  


Over the next few weeks we will be making ice-lollys, snow cones and ice-cream for our ice cafe.  





Come to join us for our 'STAY AND PRAY' sessions! Held on the last Tuesday of the month, every month.

This is a wonderful opportunity to collect together, pray and meditate with your children in school.  Pray is integral to our lives as Christians - we gather, we listen, we respond and we go forth with Love in our hearts.





This months stay and pray will be on Tuesday 26th February 2019

at St Anne's Catholic Academy Nursery!


All of our Nursery children enjoy coming to nursery, it is our priority that they feel safe, valued and secure.  We ensure that they learn in a stimulating environment filled with wonder and awe. We give them a wide range of experiences that inspire them to become independent learners, learners that are happy to actively learn, explore, be creative and think critically about the challenges that they embark upon.  Our fully qualified teachers scaffold, support and extend the children in their learning enabling them to achieve the most they can in the earliest years of life.


We wholeheartedly encourage you as parents and carers to be fully involved in Nursery life and help to plan your child's next steps in their learning. You are your child's first and foremost carer and we know that together we can achieve wonderful things for them! We are here to work for them and help them to progress and we know that with your support our Nursery children will make accelerated progress in all areas of the curriculum.


Learning outside the Classroom is an integral part of our learning.  We plan many exciting lessons outside and believe that the outdoor environment offers a natural stimulus in which the children can ask questions and enhance their learning without fear of failure. You will see lots of the wonderful learning your children are doing all around our Nursery Classroom, we celebrate all children’s achievements on our learning walls.  Please have a look at our Notice Board to keep up to date with the events and activities your child will be taking part in - it is going to be a very exciting year!
