We love to learn and explore in Nursery
I love being outdoors and really value our outdoor learning environment. I enjoy making learning fun and learning through messy play!
All About Us...
At St Micheal's we promote a love of learning, in Nursery we love to explore using the inside and outside areas.
We engage in messy play, water play, construction, small world (animals, people), real life play (shops, doctors, vets), role play. creative play and investigative play.
We use all of our senses to explore and learn, we encourage lots of talking and listening and provide activities that develop these skills.
We follow the interests of the children and strive to provide an environment that is engaging, challenging and meaningful.
What your child needs in school:
A warm water proof coat- we access our outside area all day everyday
A pair of Welly boots
A change of clothes in their bag
Spare nappies and wipes if your child requires these
All clothes should be clearly labelled.
A St Michael's logo jumper, black tracksuit bottoms and a plain white polo top. Trainers should be closed toed, water resistant and sensible for climbing, exploring and running.
If your child is full time (30hours) they will need a packed lunch which is labelled and nut free.
