All about our Nursery

We are always busy in Nursery! The children in Nursery learn through cross-curricular themes, interwoven with the Christ Church CE friendly and caring Christian ethos, that are designed to follow the children’s interests and challenge each child to progress onto their next steps.

Good parenting and high quality early learning together provide the foundation children need to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow, therefore forming a strong partnership between home and Nursery is vital. We nurture this partnership by providing many ways for parents/carers to communicate with the Nursery team and share their child's achievements at home/Nursery. 

Play is the cornerstone of our Early Years curriculum. Through supervised play children are encouraged to explore, develop, imagine and investigate their surroundings in order to start to understand the world around them. Practical experiences are incredibly valuable and appropriate at this stage of learning. Play provides important opportunities for learning in many ways; observation, exploration, discovery and communication. These opportunities are developed through both indoor and outdoor activities.

We are passionate about developing the children’s love of books and stories so we do place an emphasis on the children developing a positive relationship with literature. We also ensure our that our children enjoy maths using a blend of fun, engaging games and guided activities, providing the children with a firm basis of understanding on which to build their later knowledge.

Teaching in Nursery is an absolute pleasure, laying the building blocks for a smooth transition Reception and it is a joy to watch our young children develop into happy, confident children who feel set to succeed on their journey through Christ Church CE Primary School.

Nursery Attendance

Our aim is to create a culture in which good attendance is 'normality' and valued within a nurturing and supportive learning partnership with parents /carers.

At Christ Church CE Primary School we believe good attendance is essential if children are to be settled and take full advantage of the learning and development opportunities available to them.  At a young age continuity and consistency are important contributors to a child's well-being and progress. We believe regular attendance at nursery also sets up good practice for statutory school.  Without good regular attendance, our School will also lose vital funds to finance our great staff: children ratio - which makes such a difference to every child’s learning and development.

Please support us in making sure we get the chance to teach your lovely children every day!

Panto in School

On our first day back in school we will be enjoying a visit from a Pantomime company who will put on a performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. We are very much looking forward to this. What a fun way to start our new term!

Nursery Autumn 2017

Jack and the Beanstalk

What better way to start a new half term than with an energetic, modern pantomime show.  The children (and the teachers) thoroughly enjoyed the interactive performance of Jack and the Beanstalk. As well as being entertained, we were inspired and children across the school are writing their very own version of the tale. Here are some photos from the wonderful morning. See if you can spot two of our teachers putting on a show with the performers...
