St Theresa's RC Primary School

 

 

Nursery are part of early years foundation stage and they are taught by Miss Isherwood, Miss Lacy and Mrs Dawes. 

Below, you will find some important and useful information about Nursery. 

Nursery Key Information 

School starts at 8.50am. 

As soon as the children come into class our work begins so please make sure they arrive on time then they do not miss out on valuable learning time. 

Reading  

It is an expectation that children are read to at home. 5 minutes a day can make such a massive difference to their development and their confidence.

The children bring home a reading book. You are not expected to read a whole book every time - a couple of pages regularly is fine. Once this is returned to school, the book will then be changed. If a book is lost, then there will be a £5 charge. 

Our curriculum 

In nursery, we follow a thematic curriculum that encapsulates the entirety of the EYFS Framework 2021. To see what learning we are doing this term, click on the blue bars below.

Tapestry

In EYFS, we use an incredible online learning journey called Tapestry. In class, we use Tapestry to record and track your child’s learning. Please download the app so you can contribute and be directly involved with your child’s learning! If you need help to login, please see a member of the EYFS team.
