Latest from Nursery
In Nursery we love to play and learn outdoors all year round.
Please make sure your child brings a warm, waterproof coat each day as we enjoy being outside in all weathers! We do have some wellies for the children to change in to if needed, but they can also bring in a pair from home if they prefer.
Every Monday the children will take home a red bag containing a book of their choice. The red bags and books are Nursery property therefore any damage or lost items with be charged for. Please ensure you send your child with their red bag EVERY MONDAY. Reading books and talking about the story/characters is an important and powerful experience to share with your child. Please take time out to read daily with your child.
A contribution of £1.50 is asked from parents every week. This pays towards a healthy, wholesome snack and towards other luxuries for your child that provide excellent learning opportunities and first-hand experiences. Please can you ensure that this payment is paid weekly so as to sustain these opportunities.
Please ensure your child is attending Nursery daily. It is so important for them for building friendship groups, experiencing rich learning experiences and also to prepare them on their journey to Reception Class. I understand that young children do get ill but please ring the office to make us aware if they are having time off and please don’t just keep them off if they are feeling tired.
Our Nursery Class is taught by Mrs Parkinson, Mrs Rogers and Mrs Begum.
For all our new parents, I would like to mention that due to our ‘Smile4Life’ accreditation we only provide healthy and sugar free snacks for example sandwiches, bread sticks, crackers and fruit. We also provide milk or water to drink daily.
The children are already becoming familiar with Kagan and the structure, ‘quiet hand signal’. All children respond following the signal by stopping immediately and raising their hand to show they are ready to listen to a teacher. Nursery will also be pursuing learning cultures and the 5 R’s as is used throughout school.
