End of year feedback from parents July 2017


Thank you so much for all of the hard work you have done this year with J. He absolutely loves going to 'Big Nursery' and always tells me about the lovely things he has done each day. I have been amazed at the things you have taught him and how grown up he seems now. You have really helped him to get ready for school- they have some big shoes to fill!


We all want to say a huge thank you. L started Nursery really shy, she didn't know her letters and numbers and even struggled with her speech. You have all done an amazing job helping her become the clever little girl she is now. All of you have played an important part in helping her. You should all be very proud. Catchgate Nursery is fantastic and I praise it all the time. Thank you so much you are fabulous teachers!



Welcome to Nursery


We hope you have all had a wonderful Summer and are as excited as we are to start the new year in Nursery!

During the first week of the half term we will have a Ben and Holly themed week linked to the whole school topic of the Borrowers. Please visit our class page to see photo updates.



Autumn 1

Our main theme for the half term is "What would you chose?" Which links to our main texts of the half term which is You choose and Hug. We will be talking about families, what children like and dislike and the similarities and differences between ourselves and other children.
