Autumn 1- week 7

Stars of the Week: Heidi and Yoki


As we reach the end of our first half term together we are really pleased to notice how much more confident and independent our nursery children have become.  The children are increasingly better at managing their belongings, putting on coats, eating using a knife and fork and tidying away at the end of each session.

Heidi and Yoki surprised themselves this week when they managed to put their socks and tights on completely by themselves!

Well done!




Welcome to Nursery!

Nursery have had a fantastic first couple of weeks at Cathedral School!

All of the children have enjoyed exploring both the indoor and outdoor classrooms, making new friends, and learning the routines of the day.

Everybody is so proud of how well they are settling in!

Please take a look at some photos of what the children have been up to so far!

A lovely surprise!

Nursery have waited patiently for 28 days… and finally our eggs have hatched!

We had lots of fantastic ideas about what might hatch out of them, including dinosaurs, penguins, snakes and spiders!

We were very excited when we began to see cracks in the eggs, and tiny beaks began to appear! We were thrilled when 3 healthy ducklings hatched out of the eggs! They stayed at Nursery for 5 days, and we had important jobs to do such as making sure they had enough food and water. We named the ducks Rosie, Fluffy and Stretchy!

They have now gone back to Surrey Docks Farm, so be sure to look out for them if you visit in the summer holidays!

Summer 2 – Week 2

Stars of the Week: Masroor and Aarav


This week Masroor and Aarav have spent lots of time in the construction area! They have created some wonderful models with a variety of construction materials including duplo, wooden blocks and construction straws!


Well done Masroor and Aarav! Keep up the creative work!

Summer 2 – Week 1

Stars of the Week: Hudson and Gabrielle


Nursery have been working hard on their phonics during the Summer term. Well done to Hudson and Gabrielle who have been enjoying taking part in our daily phonics sessions this week! They were able to think of lots of words beginning with our sound of the week – ‘h’. They are also hearing initial sounds in words and attempting to write them!

Well done Hudson and Gabrielle!


Summer 1 – Week 7

Poetry Week!

This week has been Poetry Week at Cathedral School. Nursery have learnt that a poem is a bit like a song, but we don’t always sing it!

We have been singing lots of nursery rhymes this week, which we always enjoy doing and are very good at!

We have also learnt a new poem all about names! There will be a video of us performing the poem to follow…


This week we have been doing different activities based upon our names!

We used our phonic knowledge to hear the initial sounds in a variety of pictures – and once we had done this we realised that the initial letters spelt out our names!


We also collaged the letters in our names to make a bright and vibrant display!


Stars of the Week: All of Nursery

Well done to everyone in Nursery for working really hard to learn our class poem ‘Everybody Has A Name’. You have all done really well to remember all of the words, and to use a clear voice! You should all be very proud of yourselves!

Summer 1 – Week 6

Stars of the Week: Chiugo and Mattia


This week we have been measuring a range of objects from around the classroom, and using language such as ‘longer’, ‘shorter’ and ‘taller’ to compare them.


Well done to Mattia and Chiugo who enjoyed measuring different objects using unifix cubes, and were able to order them according to length.
