Welcome to Early Years!


“The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree.”

Psalm 92:12


Miss Watt, Miss Parks and Mrs Wade welcome you our fantastic Early Years; where very child will flourish in their own unique way. With the environment being our third teacher, we enjoy being curious, exploring provocations and understanding our world around us. In Early Years, we learn letter sounds which help us build the foundations to blend to read and segment to spell in order to write. We always try our best with our work and we love and care for each other as we do ourselves. Our passionate group of adults that work with us in Early Years encourage us to strive for the best and reach our full potential. They are always here to listen, understand and take on board our emotions and interests.



Our Early Years Pedagogy…

In Early Years, we aim to be exceptional in all that we do. Not only do we have high expectation of all the children in our care, but of the adults supporting them. We are a friendly, enthusiastic and supportive team, who are dedicated in developing children to learn. We strive to create a safe, welcoming and engaging learning environment where children become confident to try new activities and communicate to new peers and adults. We support and nurture children in their learning, where we celebrate mistakes and praise resilience and children who ‘have a go!’ and ‘Don’t give up!’. We foster an ‘I can’ attitude and ‘always our best’ approach to ensure children progress and become the best they can be. The Early Years Team most importantly wants your child to be happy at school and our team are committed in supporting each and every child in the Early Years setting and as they continue their journey through St. Peter’s!

We appreciate that no-one understands and knows your child as well as you do, therefore we place great importance on home and school links. We actively involve parents in their child’s learning and include these contributing in each child’s ‘Me, My World, My Family Books’. We appreciate the time and dedication it takes to share your experiences and contributions and would like to thank you in advance for this support.

Reception – Will bring home a book matched to their phonetic stage each Friday and to be returned on the following Thursday. These are also available as e-books on the Collins website – see link below.

They will also bring an ‘our book’ which will not be decodable but the purpose is to share with an adult and explore to develop a passion for reading.

Nursery – Will take home a story sack each Friday and keep for 2 weeks.


At the end of each half term, your child may come home with some personalised tasks in which you can support them with to develop fluency in either reading, writing, or early maths. Please ask Miss Watt if there is anything you require help with or resources you may wish to use to support your child at home.
