Welcome to Our Lady Nursery class. On this page, you will find pictures and videos of what we have been doing since the start of term.


This term we will be focusing on the different subjects which are detailed in the Curriculum newsletter. Each subject will be taught during a carpet session and activities set in the classroom and in the outdoor area are linked to their learning.


Our aim is for children to develop their social skills, interacting and connecting with each other as well as with the outer world. Curiosity will be developed towards the environment and its natural elements in order to learn to take care and respect our world. Most importantly, children will be learning essential values such as sharing and taking turns, considering others and learning to forgive and say sorry.


Reminders: Children will receive homework every Wednesday. This needs to be returned on Monday morning. Reading books and library books will be changed once a week on your child's reading day. Please sign your child's reading record after reading with them.

Local Area Week: We enjoyed talking about where we live and sharing our personal experiences with the class.

We have enjoyed playing at the junk modelling area using resources to create our own models. Have a look at our lovely designs!

PE: This week we have been practicing passing a tennis ball to each other and enjoyed playing musical statues together.

Exploring and playing outdoors

In our RE lessons, we have been learning about the good news of Pentecost. We talked about how Jesus left us with a new friend, the holy spirit. Children enjoyed learning how the holy spirit is everywhere and how despite not being able to see him we can feel him in the air. We enjoyed exploring how the wind helps our rainbow catchers and windmills move, just like the holy spirit helps us.

Crescent Literary Session: Parents enjoyed coming in and reading together ‘Little Penguin Learns to Swim’ from our theme ‘Around the World’. We enjoyed learning about the animals living in Antarctica and linked it to our learning by exploring penguins at the zoo. Have a loo a the lovely activities we did together!

Summer 1: We began this term by focusing our learning on our theme 'All creatures big and small'. We have been reading the story 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and learning how not only baby chicks come from eggs but also caterpillars. We enjoyed learning about caterpillars and how they turn into a butterfly. Have a look at the lovely work we have been doing!

Our theme this term is 'What a Wonderful World'. Our focus books are 'Noisy Farm' and 'Little Red Hen'. We have enjoyed having parents in for a crescent literacy session where we enjoyed reading our story together and exploring the different activities focusing on growing.

To continue our learning on 'people who help us'. Today we talked about how not all superheroes wear capes and shared our ideas on what real life superheroes we might know. We enjoyed reading the story 'Flashing Fire Engines' and having parents for stay and play. Have a look at the lovely activities we did about firefighters!

To start our new topic, 'people who help us', we have started by reading the story 'Super Daisy' to introduce how not all super heroes wear capes. Children enjoyed talking about their favourite superheroes and creating their own in different ways.
