Welcome to Nursery!

Class Teacher - Mrs Prior

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Stowell

Our Nursery is such a wonderful place to start your Holy Spirit journey.  We share our provision with the Reception children, and we are all one very big family.  In Nursery we do some focused activities, but the large majority of our learning takes place through play. 

We have lots of fun things to do and we are looking forward to sharing our journey with you!!

Welcome to Reception!

Class Teacher - Miss Ashton

Teaching Assistants - Mrs Jackson, Mrs Armstrong and Mrs Fitzmaurice

Reception is a really exciting time for both parents and children. During this year we will all work together to ensure that your child will develop a love for learning which they will carry with them for the rest of their school journeys. We provide a nurturing and exciting learning environment to give all our children the opportunity to grow and develop into happy and confident learners. We understand that children learn best when they are interested and intrigued.

I'm sure we are going to have lots of fun this year by trying new activities and sharing exciting experiences together.

Each Friday your child will receive a new reading book. This is a book that your child will share with yourself and with a member of staff. We expect your child to read it by themselves with encouragement from you. If you could record how they did in their reading diary this will help support your child in moving through book bands. 

Inside your child’s book bag they will have;

  • A reading book
  • Tricky word flash cards
  • Number flash cards

Book bags must be in school everyday and books will be changed every Thursday evening .
