Welcome to the Nursery page for our two classes - NBW and NEW.
All nursery children now have logins for the learning activities on Purple Mash. We recommend that Nursery follow the links to the Mini Mash section first.
Please contact school firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not know your child's username and password.

We hope you are all still well and safe. How is the home schooling going so far? Hope these plans are helping. We are giving a few suggestions so that you can also pick and choose, so please don’t feel obliged to complete all – we understand how hard it can be. The most important thing you can do with your child is play with them, talk to them, have fun with them!
Here are some useful websites that we use in Nursery and that we have discovered during the past few weeks – we hope they help?
For activities in our planning, we will put page numbers for you to refer to in

This work comes from the Come and See Religious Education programme which is taught in all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Liverpool. We have given a general guide to the learning opportunities that your child may have come across in school and have only suggested and selected a small amount of the programme. The activities aim to keep Religious Education practical and fun. They are in Year groups however, there is no harm in completing other year group work as this will help your child to remember and strengthen their learning.
The first part of learning is called – EXPLORE. This shares your child’s everyday experiences and helps them to see how the Catholic faith is lived in their everyday lives. The second part, called – REVEAL shares bible stories that links to their everyday life.
Please note that the activities have been adapted as far as possible to adhere to social distancing guidelines.
Please read pages 1, 2 and 3 of the Come and See RE Home Learning booklet. Please click on the image for the download link.

On Friday July 10th we are holding our annual 'wear a kit for Jack' fundraising day. We would like our children to wear a sports kit of their choice and post a picture to our Instagram page, back view or face obscured, with the tag line, 'I'm wearing my kit for Jack'.
Children who are coming to school should also come in a sports kit.
