Welcome to St Stephen’s

A very warm welcome to St Stephen’s Nursery families.

We have lots of fun being busy! It is through our play that we learn all we need to know. We believe that play helps children to develop intellectually. At St Stephen’s we place great value on learning and exploring outdoors. Our wonderful outdoor environment provides many enriching and risk taking opportunities. Such opportunities allow children to grow and develop confidence, independence and skills for life.

The children have already made a fantastic start to their year in Nursery & we are extremely proud of how well they are settling into their new environment & routines. We are looking forward to a wonderful year together & we hope you enjoy hearing about all the exciting things we do in Nursery!



Miss Dempsey & Miss Whittaker are the full time staff in Nursery.  We are also supported by Mrs Sheard and by Mr Grantham for PE.Ms Staniforth is currently covering for Miss Dempsey

PE is on Wednesday’s in the morning and we will do Forest School activities in the afternoon. We also have a bike-ability session on a Wednesday with Joe

Please visit our school website, class page & our Facebook page to keep up to date with all our latest EYFS & whole school news.



This half term our first topic is Planting and growing.  

We are using the book 'Jasper's Beanstalk' to explore planting and growing.  We will be learning what we need to do, how we can help seeds grow and what different plants and food come from seeds.  It is going to be so much fun.  See our Curriculum Newsletter for more information.  



Uniform – We ask all children to wear a school uniform. A white polo shirt with either grey pants or grey skirt/pinafore should be worn

Spare Clothes – All children should have a bag in school with spare clothes – accidents do happen!

Water Bottle – Children should bring a water bottle into school with their name clearly labelled on it. We do ask parents to make sure that the bottle contains only water

Names – Please make sure children have their names in all items of their uniform. It avoids tears when things go missing and really helps staff

Book Bag – If your child has a school book bag, they can bring home a book from our library to share at home

Wet weather Attire – All children need a pair of wellies in school and a raincoat (with their names on)


Things to do at Home

Phonics – To build up our listening skills, draw your child’s attention to what they can hear around them; the rain, an alarm, birdsong.  Anything is fab!

Reading – Read with your child as much as possible and encourage them to discuss their favourite characters and favourite book(s)

Maths – Draw your child’s attention to numbers and shapes within their environment. e.g. door numbers, shapes of household items


We look forward to a busy and fun filled year together!
