St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School

Growing Together in Faith, Love and Learning


Our Learning & Fun Starts Here

We want to ensure the best possible start for you and your child as we appreciate that starting Nursery is a big step.

Our teachers are Miss Chivers and Mrs Cottam. They teach us lots of new things and help us to have fun and be happy in school.

In Nursery, we love to learn, playing indoors and outdoors. We love to explore, be curious, face new challenges, become independent and make lots of new friends.

Our Teachers observe us at play, to help them understand and support us in our learning and development. They get to know us as unique little people with special skills, interests and ideas (recognising how we learn). They encourage us to do our very best.

In Nursery, we love to read and explore the world of books. We ask that our Mummies, Daddies or Grandparents read with us every day. Let’s catch the Reading Bug!

What to expect, when? Guidance to your child’s learning and development in the EYFS

As you know, being a parent is very special and amazing as you watch your child develop and grow up. It can also have little challenges. This booklet will help give you an example of some ideas and tips as to how you can help your child’s learning and development in Nursery.

Here in Nursery, it is a joy watching your child grow and develop, and we would like to celebrate all their achievements – whether they happen at School or at home with you.  We love to hear from you about the things your child enjoys or achieves.  We encourage Parents to share in their child’s achievements and you will have lots of opportunities to do this over their Nursery year.  You can also follow us on TWITTER.

We look forward to the year ahead and seeing your children grow in Faith, Love and Learning, as they start their Learning Journey in Nursery.
