Welcome to St John Fisher’s Nursery Class Page!
Our nursery opened in January this year so we are very lucky to be the first children to be in our beautiful new classroom. Our classroom has grown and developed throughout our time and we are enjoying it very much.
Take a little look around!

We have 31 children altogether in nursery. 16 boys and 15 girls. 19 of us are 3 turning 4 and 12 of us will be in nursery for another year.
How we learn!
In Nursery, we enjoy learning through play. We freely access both the indoors and outdoors classrooms and access lots of different areas to help develop our learning powers. We have the opportunities each day to become builders, readers and mark makers, mathematicians, scientists, artists, explorers, investigators. We enjoy exploring in areas such as small world, water, sand, bikes and physical development, messy play and role play.
These allow us to cover all of the areas of the EYFS curriculum which include:
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Communication , Literacy and Language
Understanding of the World
Expressive Arts and Design
What’s happening now!
Tapestry is up and running keeping you up to date on your child’s learning at Nursery. Keep sending in your own learning at home, it is lovely to see the wonderful experiences children are enjoying at home.
During our Summer Term, we will be exploring learning through the topic of ‘Growing’. We will explore some stories including; ‘Jasper’s Beanstalk’, ‘The Tiny Seed’, ‘The Enormous Turnip’, ‘The Big Carrot’ and many more including lots of non-fiction texts. We will also enjoy learning about minibeasts and search for some in our outdoor area as we enjoy stories such as, ‘The Bad-Tempered Ladybird’ and ‘Superworm.’
We will continue to follow our interest and see where this will take us!
We will enjoy some traditional tales including; the three Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk.
We will have some exciting more adventures in ‘Story World’ and see where this leads us!
‘Story World, Story World tap the lid, open it up, open it wide, let’s all take a look inside!’
The first time we entered Story World, we met Brown Bear and we had to make him feel welcome in our class. But unfortunately he went missing searching for his favourite teddy. Luckily though, he was delivered to us and then were together again!
The second time we entered story world it was to solve the mystery of the missing chairs. We found out that it was Goldilocks that had stolen them and taken them for a picnic in the hopes that her friends would join. We decided to instead in to invite Goldilocks to our very own Teddy bears picnic.
Each time we go off to learn in Story World we each receive glitter and have to repeat the rhyme,
‘Magic story dust, really is a must, sprinkle on and we’ll be gone to magic story world!’
I wonder where Story World will take us next!
Come and See
St John Fisher is a Catholic school and we live out our school mission every day to SHINE!
During our Spring Term we continue to explore Growing as well as cover the topics of:
Good News, Friends, Our World
Through each topic, we listen to scripture and learn about different ways we can act out or lives following God’s key messages within each topic.
Each day we gather for collective worship to celebrate our faith with new messages and themes each week.
