Nursery Class St. Francis

Dear Parents/ Carers,

Welcome to the Nursery class! My name is Mrs Szymczak and working alongside me is Mrs Hopkins. We are 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.

Watch this space to see all the fun and exciting things we do in class.

As an entry point to our topic Food, Nursery visited our local Tesco supermarket. Children had a chance to buy ingredients to make a healthy Superhero smoothie.

Welcome back after half term break. Children have been very busy learning maths through 'The very hungry caterpillar' story.

Children enjoyed dressing up for the Christmas Nativity!

Last Monday, nursery had a visit by local police officers, who explained ways of keeping safe.

We decided to go on a bear hunt after reading the story 'We're going on a bear hunt'. We went through the wavy grass, cold river, oozy mud, dark forest and swirling snowstorm. Finally, we found a bear in its cave. Some of us got very scared!

Children read the story of 'Goldilocks and the three bears'. They enjoyed making and tasting the porridge!

Nursery children had 'A Teddy Bear Day'. Throughout the day they were responsible for their own little guests.

This week we have been learning about Judaism. Children tried some traditional clothing and made a Menorah, which is one of the Jewish symbols.

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

We are getting ready for Black History Assembly!

Nursery children have been learning about the African culture. We read the story 'Handa's Surprise' and children took part in many activities linked to the story.

African Drumming Workshop. We have been celebrating Black History Month and children had the opportunity to play on the African drums, which they really enjoyed.

Individual School Photos Reminder 


Individual photos are being taken on Thursday 14th October. Please make sure your child is wearing the correct uniform and looks neat and tidy. 


Kind regards

Mrs Szymczak


Dough Disco! Children are performing different actions such as squeezing, rolling, splatting and pinching in time to music. This activity helps to strenghten children's fine motor muscles.

During RE lesson nursery children were looking at the Bible. They listened to the story of Noah's Ark and enjoyed retelling through play.

As IPC topic 'Family and friends' the children brought in photos of their families and discussed them with the rest of the peers. They also created beautiful family portraits for our display.

Nursery has settled well in their new classroom and made lots of new friends.
