St. Joseph's Catholic Primary Academy

We Value All in the Name of Jesus the Christ

How do we learn?


In Nursery we learn through play. Children have access at all times to a wide range of resources, both indoors and outdoors, which they are encouraged to use within their self-directed time. This time works alongside group teaching and focus group activities. We promote independent learners- the children are encouraged to think for themselves and make their own choices. The planning covers the following areas of learning and development- Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.  We have made a considerable investment in our Nursery environment and moving towards a 'hygge' approach, this means that we are reducing the number of plastic pre-made toys in the environment and are developing children's imagination through natural resources being used.
