Nursery Class


Welcome to the Nursery

The Staff in the Nursery class this year are Miss Molloy, Mrs Bissell, Mrs Edwards and Miss Wallace 


Class Saint 


The Nursery class is Saint Francis. He is the Patron Saint of animals. Saint Francis’ feast day

is celebrated on Friday 4th October.

We ask that Saint Francis watches over all living things and helps us to appreciate

the many beautiful animals and creatures in our world





Our Topic for this half term is Autumn. Where we explore the changes in weather and the environment around us. We also look at the different colours of Autumn and animals that we might see around this time of year.

We also consider all children’s interest within the Foundation Stage and adapt our teaching and learning to these interests.
