St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

A Voluntary Academy

Trusting in God; Creating Tomorrow; Helping Today


Welcome to Nursery!


In Nursery we follow the 'Early Years Foundation Stage', which consists of the following areas of learning:


Prime Areas

Communication and Language 

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Physical Development


Specific Areas



Understanding the World

Expressive Arts and Design


Children in Nursery learn through focused groups with an adult and through child initiated activities. The classroom's extra provision is planned to match our current topic or book we are reading.


Mrs Dexter is our class teachers and Miss Anthony is our teaching assistant.

Me and My Community


Our topic this term is 'Me and My Community'. We will be focusing on learning about our families and friends in our local community during Advent One. In Advent Two we will be learning all about 'people who help us'. We will look at some of the different jobs others in our community do and how they play a large part in helping our communities.


Some of our focused texts this term will be;

Once There Were Giants

The Rainbow Fish 

Lost and Found

People Who Help Us


We can't wait to show you all the wonderful things we have learnt. Please make sure to check back to our website page to see photographs of activities in our classroom!
