Hello and welcome to Nursery. We have had a fantastic start to the new Nursery year and the children have settled in really well. We want to reassure you that we will constantly strive to provide a homely, caring and safe environment for your child. We welcome parental involvement in all aspects of our activities and we ask you to help us build on your child’s existing knowledge and specific needs as you are your child’s first teacher, you know them better than anybody. We want your child to be happy and contented at St Charles.

The Foundation Curriculum

The Foundation Curriculum is designed to involve children in a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Through the range of areas outlined below the children will learn through exploration and discovery. They will learn through creative activities where they will practise skills and develop understanding and knowledge. This new curriculum reflects the importance of play in a young child’s life and is not designed to be overly formal, yet prepares them fully for Key Stage One. Some of the time will be spent in outdoor play where all areas of the curriculum are also taught.

In RE, the children will be learning about God’s Family. The children understand that they belong to their own families and now they are experiencing what it means to belong to the school family.  Their friends and teachers are becoming increasingly important in their lives.  

You can help at home by:

  • Talking to your child about your family.
  • Sharing photographs and stories of family members and events the family has shared.
  • Having a friend home to tea or to play.
  • Making a point of greeting friends at Church.
  • Talking about what the child sees and hears at Church.
  • Praying together as a family before bedtime and remembering to say thank you.

Weekly routine:

  • Children to have a spare set of clothes and pumps in their pump bag to be left in school at all times
  • We ask for a £1 donation weekly towards Nursery fund. We spend this money on activities such as baking and birthday presents etc.
