St Francis Nursery

Autumn Term 2018


Welcome to Nursery


Dear Parents,

My name is Mrs Szymczak and working alongside me in Nursery are Mrs Sweeney and Miss Corcoran.

We are all very excited about the year ahead!

We know that starting school is a huge step and our aim is to create calm, friendly and fun environment

to ensure your children settle well.

Please check this site regularly. We will put lots of lovely photos of your children on this class page.


Following the book review 'We're going on the bear hunt', our little chefs have helped baking teddy bear shaped cookies. We organised a tea party, where they could bring their own teddy bear and taste the delicious cookies altogether.

We read the story 'We're going on the bear hunt'. We decided to go on the bear hunt too. We went trough the grass, river, mud, forest and snowstorm. Finally, we found the bear in the cave.

This week we have been reading the story 'Elmer the elephant'. We have been very busy taking part in number of activities linked to the story.

This term our IPC topic is Animals. As an introduction to the subject, children have created colourful animal masks.

Children have been learning about Judaism this week. We focused on festival of Passover and pupils have decorated a Cup of Elijah, one of the symbols of Judaism.

We are getting ready for Black Culture Assembly!

This week we continued reading a story 'Handa's Surprise". Children had a chance to taste fruits from Handa's basket, they also made delicious fruit salad.

Our literacy focus last week was 'Handa's Surprise". Children made some finger and fruit prints.

Children have been learning about 2D shapes. They made castles and houses using the shapes they learnt. Later on, pupils spent time outside exploring the various shapes existing in real life.

Children made colourful African necklaces and patterns linked to our literacy topic.

Our IPC topic is "All about me". For our entry point we made our beautiful faces using different materials.

Look how happy we were during our first day in nursery!
