Welcome to the Nursery web page. 


On this page you will find information about what the children have been learning and ideas for supporting their learning at home.


This page will be updated EVERY Friday. 

Everyday we say two prayers and you can continue learning these at home.  The children are starting to join in a lot more, especially with the sign of the cross at the start and the end of the prayer. 

Ask them to teach it to you!


The prayer that we say at the start of the session is:


O my God you love me,

You're with me night and day.

I want to love you always,

In all I do and say.

I try to please you Father,

Bless me through the day.




And at the end of the session:


God our Father I come to say,

Thank-you for your love today.

Thank you for my family,

And all the friends you give to me.

Guard me in the dark of night,

And in the morning,

Send your light.
