Nursery 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Nursery!

Dear Parents and Carers.

May I first wish you a happy new year.
Myself (Miss Lohan), Mrs Lee and Miss Forrest hope that you all had a peaceful and relaxing Christmas. We are looking forward to seeing our returning Nursery children and welcoming our new additions to the Holy Name family. We hope they settle and make new friends quickly with the support of all the staff and the children’s friendly personalities.

Over the spring term we will be continuing to develop new skills, knowledge and understanding.

Spring 1:     The Weather
Spring 2:     Growing (plants and life cycles) 

Our topic this half term is Weather. We will be focusing on using vocabulary and speaking in simple sentences. We will be encouraging your child to observe, describe and make predictions about the weather.

We welcome and value any feedback from you regarding your child and value our partnership with you. Please do not hesitate to ask questions to any member of the Foundation Stage Team and we look forward to discussing your child’s progress regularly.

Throughout the year we carry out workshops with parents where you are invited in to join in with group sessions and to take away activities which you and your child can enjoy at home.

We offer a reading club every Wednesday morning which is in Partnership with Martenscroft Sure start Centre. We welcome you to stay and share a story with your child, they receive a sticker for each session they attend and get a book when they achieve 10 stickers.

We are happy to celebrate birthdays and your child’s special day in school but ask that you please provide just a cake which has already been cut and wrapped as party bags and other foods can cause upset amongst the children.

We look forward to working with you throughout the year. Please check our school website ( regularly as most of the information you will need will be there, however any concerns please approach a member of staff. 

Miss Lohan, Mrs Lee, Miss Forrest and the Foundation Stage team.
