St. Helen's Primary School


Nursery - Mrs Moore


I would like to welcome you to Nursery at St. Helen's Primary School. My name is Mrs Moore and I am the Nursery teacher. Myself and Mrs Carter, the nursery teaching assistant, look forward to welcoming your child. Children in nursery learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking, which takes place both indoors and outside.

Nursery is a very important year for preparing the children to start full time school.

The focus is on three prime areas of learning:

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

And four specific areas of learning:

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

The Nursery Day

AM Nursery is 8:30-11:30am

PM Nursery is 12:00-3:00pm



Your child will bring home a shared reading book every day. Please share the book with your child and make a comment in their reading journal. Both your child’s reading book and their reading journal should be returned every Nursery session.


Phonics is key to a child’s time in Nursery and we will be working through ‘Letters and Sounds’ phase 1 and 2.


Count everything! Everywhere you go and everything you do can be turned into a maths challenge. How many birds in the tree? How many buses go past our house? How many plates do we need for tea?

Other information

Please send in a bag of spare clothes to keep on your child's peg.

Should you have any questions, then please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be available either before or after each Nursery session.
