Hello everyone and welcome to Holy Rood Nursery. It has been lovely to welcome back some familiar faces to our Nursery this year and to have the chance to see the little ones who have now moved into full time school after a long absence. We have really missed you all.


We are looking forward to a new school year and have lots of exciting adventures planned so please keep checking in to see what we have been learning. For regular updates please follow us on Twitter @holyroodcps

We have many new children and families joining us in Nursery this half term so please join us in saying a big hello, we know you will help to make them feel welcome. 


As our children leave their families we are spreading a message of hope and happiness. Together we will work for your child to be the best they can be. Thank you for entrusting your child to us for the coming school year. We will do our best to be your child’s guide in learning and exploring this bright new world they have just stepped into. 


Thank you

Mrs Dalton and Miss Haxby


Autumn Term 1 - 2020


All about me


We have explored our emotions this half term. We read the story ‘The Colour Monster’ and used this to find out all about our feelings. We learnt to recognise feelings of happiness, sadness, fear, anger, calm and love. 

We have also explored the season of autumn. We found out about seasonal changes in our local environment and went on an autumn walk in our school grounds to collect autumn treasures

We have explored positional vocabulary this half term by putting our bodies in, on and under and hiding small objects in, on and under. 

We have used seasonal number songs and rhymes to aid our understanding of numbers 0-5.


As we approached the end of our first half term we enjoyed a pumpkin party and the children each carved a pumpkin lantern at home and brought it to our celebration.
