We will be starting our Phonics after half term, so please check the window for our sounds of the week!
We have also been using 'Numberblocks' on 'Cbeebies' to help with our number knowledge- have a look and listen to the songs at home. I will display the numbers of the week in our window.
Good morning everyone!
From Monday 15th June, there will be some 'Activity Packs' for Nursery children. They will be in the main school office, if you would like to collect one.
I hope you are all well and safe. It was so lovely to hear about you all learning lots of skills at home. Some of you can now write your names and ride bikes! I am very impressed! Congratulations to our new big brothers and sisters too!
Please make sure you enjoy a story everyday, count and sing some Nursery Rhymes.
For the children returning on 22nd June, Nursery will look a little bit different but we will continue to work hard to make sure you feel comfortable and safe.
If your child is about to start Reception in September, please be assured that I am working with the teachers in your new schools to support Transition. The children who will be attending St William of York will have enhanced support in September, so please do not worry. We will be there to help and support your child.
Missing you all.
Take care and see you all soon.
Mrs Lawson and Everyone in your Nursery Team. xxxxx
Those of us who have been in school the last few weeks have made 'Peace Doves'. They are cut out doves with messages of peace, hope and love on.
Some of our doves have messages of love and thanks for our NHS workers and key workers.
As doves are the sign of the Holy Spirit, why don't you create a dove at home? Bring it into school when we're back and we'll see if we have enough to create a display.
There are lots of ideas on pinterest!
Use this link for resources for your child. Just simply sign up (it's free) and go to EYFS for different activities. Have fun!!
This basic playdough recipe offers parent helpers or teaching assistants a pictorial guide and tips for working with a small group of children.
Good morning everyone!
I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe at home.
If you want some ideas as to what to do at home- I have made a little list below.
Parents, if you say “All set?” Your child should respond- “You bet!!”
Practice putting on your own coat and taking it off.
Can you fasten your own shoes?
Can you do laces?
Are you washing your hands in the correct way?
Make sure you share a story every day!
Keep on trying to write your name.
When you go outside; run, jump, skip, hop, ride a bike or scooter and use your arms and legs.
Try to hold your pencil correctly.
Maybe have a look at the photographs on our class page to see your friends- can you remember their names?!
Take care and I hope to see you all very soon.

As families are now self-isolating, we have put together some useful resources for home learning.
Please see below for links and guidance.
We will update again in the near future but in the meantime, we wish you all well.

Our direct learning and teaching starts promptly at the start of each session - please ensure that your child arrives on time.
(We open our doors at the end of each session, earlier to enable a safe, calm environment in which to say goodbye to all children. This is also an opportunity for you to speak to any member of our Nursery Team)
St William of York Catholic Primary School is committed to the highest possible quality of education and childcare in our Early Years Foundation Stage. We understand that all children learn and develop at different times. Our duty is to cater for children’s individual needs, enabling every child to reach their full potential and to ensure lifelong learning.
Our Nursery and Reception classes have a ‘home from home’ feel. Children are encouraged to become independent learners, both within the curriculum and for life skills. We offer a variety of experiences and every day is exciting and challenging!
We respect and understand that parents are children’s earliest and lifelong educators. By creating a partnership between staff and families, we endeavour to fulfil every child’s potential. Staff expertise in child development and an understanding of parent’s knowledge of their own child creates an environment where children’s learning can be nurtured to its full potential, enabling confident young learners.
