Welcome to Nursery class
We are delighted to welcome back our returning nursery children and also welcome our new friends to St Anne's School Nursery class. It is going to be a very busy term full of exploration and learning! You can keep updated with our activities on this web page over the coming months.
Please ensure that all of your child's clothing is labelled with their name to ensure that garments do not go missing. In addition, please provide a bag containing a full set of spare clothing (including underwear and socks) and a pair of wellies to be kept in school. We learn outdoors everyday so a warm, waterproof coat (and hats and gloves) will be essential as the weather gets colder. We are very grateful for your support with this as we strive to ensure that your child is comfortable as they play and learn.
Please do not hesitate to speak to any Nursery member of staff if you have any questions or concerns at morning drop-off or lunchtime pick-up. We are happy to help. Similarly, if you have any special news, celebrations or WOW! moments to share - we would love to hear about them!

Our number 1 hunt...
During the last 2 weeks we have been learning all about the number 1!
Firstly, we found number 1 through our own body movements (doing 1 clap, 1 jump and 1 hop), then finding ‘1’ of different real-life concrete examples (like 1 book, 1 pencil and 1 toy car). We then moved on to finding 1 picture in a set of pictures and on Friday, we have focused on writing and recognising the number 1!
We made some number 1 wallpaper as a whole class – filling all of the paper with number 1’s. Mrs Aitken was very impressed at how well we all concentrated and cooperated with each other! Then, wearing our super-spotter hats that we had all individually made, we went on a number 1 hunt. Mrs Head and the Year 2 children kindly invited us in to the classroom and helped us find some more number 1’s in their environment. We then set off into the infant’s corridor to spot more!
You will see from our photographs that we found lots of number 1’s. I wonder if you can find any more at home too?
