Welcome to Nursery
Welcome to the Nursery Class website
In Victoria Primary we strive to provide a loving, caring environment that will nurture every child's growth and development.
To My Fantastic Nursery Class
The school year was cut short because of the virus and I did not have a chance to thank you for being such a wonderful class. I wish we had more time to play together!
You have been so brave and did such a fantastic job of staying home and keeping yourself and your family safe.
In September I will visit you in your new class. We will all be together again and will play and explore and learn.
Enjoy the summer holidays with your family and next year we will start anew.
For now I want to say that I miss you all and I am very proud of you.
With lots of love and hugs

Some Easter activities you can do with your children
Stay on schedule Having some structure to the day can help children feel more secure. Try having a weekday routine in place and keep some familiar routines going, such as morning and evening routines. Plan in time for lots of different activities, including things your children already enjoy.
Stay Active-Staying physically active is a key part of looking after our mental wellbeing. If you can, try to schedule in some time outside. If it’s safe to do so, you could explore a local park with your family, kick a ball around in the garden (if you have one), or simply go for a walk around the block.
You could schedule in some indoor exercise time. Our class favourites are the following YouTube activities and songs:
- The Kiboomers- Kids Music Channel ( Freeze Dance, I love you your button nose, etc)
- The Learning Station (Boom Chicka Boom, Move and Freeze, )
- Wake up! School Assembly Song and Dance:
- Baby shark, Banana Banana Meatball
Stay Creative Anything lying around the house could become a project: old boxes; toilet paper rolls; or even scrap paper can be transformed with a little imagination. Encourage your children to grab some paints, felt tips or pencils and find a space at home where they can make a little bit of mess.
Try CBeebies ten minutes craft ideas
Stay in Touch If you and your children are at home, it’s important that you find time to stay in touch with your friends. You may be able to contact other parents and arrange a ‘virtual playdate’ over a video calling service like FaceTime or Skype, giving your children a chance to see the friends they would normally be seeing at school.
If possible, try not to rely solely on social media to stay in touch with family and friends. Make time for telephone catch ups too!
It is really important that you read with your children at home.
