St Saviour’s Catholic Primary and Nursery School

Mission Statement

St Saviour’s is a caring school family of God’s children, keeping Jesus at the heart of everything we do.

Everyone is helped to grow in love and respect;

listening to, praying with and supporting each other.

Through forgiveness and love in a safe environment, we help each other to be what God created us to be and to be confident and independent people in His world.

A trip to the park!

We have been going to the park weekly, here are some of the pictures from our visits!

The Way, The Truth and The Life

In Nursery, we introduce children to RE. We pray at different times of the day and read stories from the bible multiple times a week. We encourage children to join in our prayers. 

Our Nursery Routine

Our routine is very flexible and we work around the needs of the children throughout the day. We do encourage the children to use the toilet regularly and nappies are always changed as and when needed, if outside of our scheduled changing times. 

The children are offered a morning snack and a drink of milk/water each day, which we provide free of charge. We encourage the children to try different tastes and textures during this time, as well as teaching good language and communication skills at the table.

This is one of our favourite times of the day! 

Every afternoon the children will be encouraged to eat a piece of fruit and to have a drink of milk/water to refuel, before they return home!

We will also be going on trips to the library to look at new books and explore our community. Hopefully if the weather is nice, we will be able to go to the park!

Story time!

We provide lots of opportunities for the children to enjoy stories throughout the morning. Our favourite books are displayed for the children to access independently during their busy time and they love to look at the pictures with their friends, talking about what they can see! Each morning, when the children arrive, they will sit down and look at a book either independently or with their peers/an adult. 

Before home time, we have a whole class story time to allow the children to unwind from our busy morning.

Here is our Reading Den-

Nursery Rhymes...

Nursery rhymes are a fantastic way of building your child's vocabulary and language skills.

Children love to learn actions to go with their songs.

In Nursery we are learning to use Makaton signs, particularly when we sing.

Makaton is a sign language programme which was created to be used alongside spoken language, in order to promote communication and language development in babies and young children. 

We sing Nursery Rhymes lots during the day, especially carpet times, before snacks and before home.

Some of our favourite Nursery Rhymes are:

Wheels on the bus

If you're happy and you know it

I'm driving in my car

Baa Baa black sheep 

Twinkle Twinkle little star 

5 little ducks
