Nursery - Mrs Crellin 2020 - 2021

Mrs Crellin



My name is Mrs Crellin and I am the Nursery Teacher here at Northway Primary.  I work alongside teaching assistant, Miss Gill who helps support our class.  I am also responsible for ensuring that British Values are celebrated and incorporated into all aspects of the primary curriculum.    

From a very young age I have always wanted to work with children. I have been a member of the teaching staff at Northway since 2011.  Before this, I taught at another school in Sefton for children with Special Educational Needs.  I attended Northway as a child and feel privileged to be a part of the children’s lives at such a crucial stage in their development.  My aim as the class teacher is to ensure that the children leave nursery with secure basic skills for life, happy memories of fun times shared and a love of learning. 

Contacting the class teacher

Due to social distancing restrictions, teachers are unable to meet face to face unless meetings have been scheduled. Please use the class emails if you wish to contact the class teacher. If your concern is imminent, please contact the school office and they will pass the message on to the class teacher.

          Half Term Homework

Listening is one of the most important skills we can teach our children.  In our phonics sessions this half term we have been learning to tune into different sounds.  We have spent time in nursery, both indoors and outdoors listening to everyday sounds and recognising what they are.

What sound it that?

Play a game indoors, ask your child to close their eyes or to turn around.  Make noises with various everyday items for your child to identify.  See if your child can recognise what they are!

This can be done in any room - a bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, living room or even outdoors.  Make sounds such as:

  • Opening the refrigerator door
  • switching on the blender
  • lifting and closing the swing dustbin
  • turning on the tap
  • boiling the kettle
  • flushing the toilet
  • ringing the doorbell

Go on a Listening Walk 

Go for a walk in the garden, down the road or to the park.  Listen for  different environmental sounds i.e. birds tweeting, dogs barking, leaves rustling, children playing and traffic zooming past.  Talk about  all the sounds you can hear.

What sounds did we hear? 

Ask your child to close their eyes and to try to remember all the things they heard.

Support your child to draw a picture of their favourite sound.  It doesn't matter what it looks like!  It's the process of recalling the sounds that matters.  Or maybe you could take a photgraph of your family on your listening walk!  

Email your pictures to 

We cant wait to see your pictures!  Please E-mail them to the above address before Wednesday 4th November 2020.  Have a lovely half term break!
