Welcome to Nursery

Please follow our Nursery class on Twitter for updates, photos and news!


We are excited to welcome our Nursery class of 2021 – 2022. We have lots of fun in our Nursery and learn so much in this very special first year at Holy Family Catholic Primary School. Here is some information that you may find useful.


The staff in Nursery are Miss McGhee & Mrs Najem. Please talk to any of the Nursery Team if you need to share any information or have any concerns.

‘Dear Zoo’

This half term we will be using ‘Talk for Writing’ to learn the story ‘Dear Zoo’. We will learn about different wild and friendly animals, where they live in the world and what they look like.  We will role play the story and complete craft challenges, making the patterns and textures of different animals. We will innovate our own class story. Our role play area will be an ice cream shop and we will write menus and orders as we role play. 

In our phonics sessions, our older nursery will continue to learn initial sounds and play blending games using ‘Fred’. We will be focussing our physical skills and challenging ourselves to write our names using a PE or pencil each day. Our younger nursery will be using instruments to distinguish sounds and hear sounds in a range of environments and contexts. 

We will be learning to count forwards and backwards to 10, sing number rhymes, recognise shapes and count 5 objects. 

In come and see we will be learning about friendship. We will talk about who our friends are and what makes a good friend. We will also be learning about our world and finding ways that we can help to take care of our beautiful world.
