Welcome to the Nursery! Here we will be posting photos and information about our class activities over the year.
And we have reached the end of the first half term. Children in nursery have settled really well, enjoying the different activities linked to our topic “Wonderful Me”. They are now looking forward to next half term with our topic “Our amazing journey to the polar regions” .
Welcome to St Elizabeth Nursery. The Nursery team is delighted to have started this scholastic year with your wonderful children. The list below is a guideline of resources needed for your child from Monday 14th September to ensure we create and maintain good communication links. Your child must have:
1.a school bag in which to keep a home-school-reading record book, a reading book which we will change twice a week and letters about events or general information that you need to know. St Elizabeth school bags will be available to purchase from the office.
2.a change of clothes (not uniform): each item of clothing must be labelled with your child’s name, the clothes need to be in a plastic bag labelled with your child’s name. A change of clothes is required for your child in case he/she gets wet playing with water or any other accidents.
3.if your child wears wellies to school, please bring a pair of shoes in a bag for your child to change into. Wellies are great for outside activities if it is wet, but they can be uncomfortable to be worn indoors.
We are very grateful for your co-operation.
Please do not hesitate to contact the nursery team if you have any queries.
