Our Lady of The Rosary Catholic Primary School

Our Lady of the Rosary is a Catholic two form entry primary school. Our aim is simple -
"that the children will be happy at school"
This aim is achieved by every member of our community being valued and treated with respect, understanding and care. In other words "living the Gospel values". Through these values, and being happy and secure in school, each child will, hopefully, fulfil his/her potential.

A typical session in the Nursery.

8.45 a.m. to about 9.15 a.m./1.00 p.m. to 1.30 p.m. registration, prayers, talking about God, taking things for the sound/colour or discovery table. We then have drinks - milk/water and explain to the children the different activities for the day.
From about 9.15 a.m./1.30 p.m. onwards time is spent doing the different activities of the day. Some activities are free choice, other activities the children are encouraged to take part in and are teacher led:-

• sand/water play
• art activities
• junk box - model makin
• manipulative work, e.g.playdough, clay, plasticine, working with scissors etc.
• free painting or collage work
• imaginative play, e.g. home corner, shops, hairdressers, etc.
• puzzles/games
• graphic table - children are encouraged to draw and write.
• computer or listening corner - children listen to story/music tape.
• number activities.

During the week, there is the opportunity to:-
1. Go over to the main school for P.E.
2. Play with musical instruments.
3. Cook.
4. Play with large constructional toys.

Outdoor play - If the weather is reasonable children play outside. We have a variety of equipment, including:-
• climbing equipment
• balls, bats, hoops, bean bags
• "wheelie" toys, e.g. bikes, prams, buggies, carts, etc.
• large bricks for building
• equipment for imaginative play.

Towards the end of the session, the children are encouraged to "tidy up". This is then followed by a story session and drink time. During drink time, children have the opportunity to listen to each others news, celebrate a birthday or take part in a group activity. The group activity is usually one of the following activities:-
• recognition of numbers 1 - 5; 1 - 10 or 1 - 20, 
  depending on the ability of the children,
recognition of shape, practical addition, recognition of colour; or to
• recognise their own name, recognise the letter that their name begins with,
•recognise a friends name - depending on the child's ability; or
• recognise letters of the alphabet by name and sound.

It is then home time. The children are encouraged to collect their own coats, put them on and, if possible, do them up!



Our philosphy is "A Happy Child is a Learning Child".

We consider each child is an individual and as such has individual learning needs which we strive to provide.
