Learning Support

Welcome to Nursery!

We are excited to work together with you as your child begins their journey at St Aloysius. 

In our Nursery, we are always busy learning and having lots of fun! Throughout the day, the children take part in short adult led sessions and then our children are busy learning through play. The children are able to access all areas of our Foundation Stage. This includes the Nursery classroom, messy room and outside area. During this time, staff will observe and interact with your child to move their learning on. We also follow the children’s interests and support their learning in adult guided activities.

Please take a look at our busy learning:

In our curriculum, there are 7 areas of learning:

Prime Areas:

  • Communication and Language
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development

Specific Areas:

  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World 
  • Expressive Arts and Design

When your child starts Nursery, the initial focus will be on the prime areas as these must be secure before the children can make progress in the specific areas. Throughout the year our curriculum covers all seven areas of learning and we provide opportunities for the children to practise these skills in our classroom provision. 

Key Information

We share our children’s learning on Seesaw. Please ensure you have received your log in information and you check this regularly. This celebrates the wonderful learning your child has done and provides some next steps that they can practise at home. 

You can also take a look at our school Twitter and Instagram pages to keep up to date with our time in school (@StAloysiusL36).

Snack costs £1.50 per week and is to be paid either weekly or per half term. Children receive milk, fruit and an additional snack each day such as toast, crumpets, crackers, sandwiches, etc. 

If you have any questions or require any further information, please speak to Miss Harrison (EYFS Leader).
