From Monday 15th June Westminster Nursery School will be open to a wider group of children including keyworker's children if places are requested. Please email admin@westminster.cheshire.sch.uk if required.

Social distancing will not be possible in our school and we want to ensure your children are as safe as possible. We need you to understand that we cannot guarantee the safety of any child who returns as the virus is invisible to us.

Wednesday 1st July

Good morning! Supertato thinks the peas are 'evil' but we love peas!

Have fun!

Monday 29th June

Good morning! We are thinking about superheroes this week:

  • Listen to story of Supertato https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlaMeNmTG6c and using a vegetable make your own superhero. Each superhero vegetable needs a mask, cape and superpowers!
  • Talking time - would you rather be invisible or fly? Ask your family too. If you were invisible what would you do? Where would you fly?
  • Use a lolly stick or wooden spoon to make your own superhero puppet.
  • Did you know you are surrounded by superheroes? Lots of people do amazing things to help look after you. Make a picture or card for someone who you think is an amazing superhero – they could be very strong or kind or brave!
  • Listen here on Cbeebies https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/radio/justins-house-superhero-party as Justin has a superhero party with Messy man.

We would love to see your superhero photos!

Friday 26th June

Well done Parents on getting through another week at home! Are you thinking ahead to the Summer? Maybe you could encourage your child to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge at the library? It is also available online this year. 

Remember you can keep in touch with us at admin@westminster.cheshire.sch.uk. Have a lovely weekend!

 

Storytime

If you use a different language at home you may be interested in a website called world stories https://worldstories.org.uk/. It has a whole range of traditional and new stories told in many languages including Polish, Bengali, Portuguese, Romanian and Turkish. Take a look!

GREAT NEWS:

Congratulations to all our staff involved in helping to strengthen our school in providing continuous support to all our children and families with their emotional wellbeing.

 

 

 

Did you know that we have a community library which is available for local families to use, free of charge. It is always lovely to see local families using this resource!! The library is well stocked with all sorts of fantastic pre-school books. The library is open on Mondays from 1-2pm and on Wednesdays from 10-11am. Westminster Parents please remember to change your children's books weekly. If your child is close to nursery age, we can give you a tour of the building while you are here to use the library! We look forward to seeing you soon.

 

 We are proud to be Makaton Friendly.

 

 

Welcome

Welcome to Westminster Nursery School. We are the only maintained Nursery School in Cheshire East and are well equipped to provide a high quality of education for children aged 2-4 years old. We are very proud of our school, our children and their achievements.

We have a wonderful learning environment both inside and out which is well organised, resourced and stimulating to enable children to learn through play with the guidance and care of our staff. Our nursery teachers plan and deliver activities for the children following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, whilst incorporating the children’s interests to ensure a child centred focus, meeting the needs of each individual child and building a strong foundation for life-long learning.

We believe that all children have a right to enjoy school and succeed regardless of gender, race or ability.

We support the children to feel happy, safe and confident in order for them to reach their full potential. We hold very high expectations of all our children and strive to achieve excellence for all, where individual needs are acknowledged and met.

We currently offer 15 hours per week of ‘Free entitlement’ with some opportunity to buy additional sessions.  We  are also offering the 'free 30 hours entitlement' to the children who are eligible. We welcome families to visit and see our school; you will find us open, friendly and welcoming. If you are a parent or carer and would like to visit, please contact us to look around the school and meet our wonderful children and staff – you will be very welcome.

Thank you

Elizabeth Hulse

Headteacher
