Welcome to St Mary’s school! We are the foundation for everything that is to come in our wonderful school, and what a place to start!
All of our very hard work is play based and designed to help develop the skills required to thrive, succeed and enjoy our time in nursery, ensuring we are ready to move on to the rest of the school.
We access the outdoor area and whole school grounds on a daily basis to provide a broad and balanced experience.

The children in Year 3 have made angel pictures which have been displayed all around Kirkby. Each day in the run up to Christmas a new angel will be displayed. Each angel is displayed with a letter. Collect the letters to find a Christmas message.
Everyone joined Mrs Smith and Mrs Day for a parade around Kirkby. We dressed in our pyjamas and pretended it was the night before Christmas. Despite the rain we had a lovely time.
Nursery children made Rangoli patterns outside YR, we put stencils on the floor and sprinkled paint on.
