Staff: Miss Westwood and Miss Morley, Miss Farrell and Mrs Costa
Welcome back! We hope you have had a lovely half term break!
Mental Health week
Thank you to all parents who joined in with our mental health week by helping your children to complete their breakfast diary's during Chat and Play and for joining us in our Wake up and Shake up routine. We have enjoyed practising yoga and listening to mindfulness music in class too! The children thoroughly enjoyed their home learning challenge where they brought something into school that makes them feel happy. There were some great conversation's about their special object and we enjoyed talking about our feelings.
Our New Learning
How does that building stay up? We will be learning all about different houses and building's throughout or exciting new topic. We will be walking around our local environment looking at different types of houses and buildings and will be experimenting with different materials to see which materials are good for building with.
Our day starts at 8.45am. The children's learning starts with self-registration, when the children check in by finding their name card. This is followed by Chat and Play.
The school day ends at 3.15pm for children in Nursery. At the end of the school day, please pick children up from Nursery before collecting older siblings. Please contact school if you are going to be late collecting your child, or if you are sending someone else to collect them.
Thank you to all parents who are reading at home with your children five times per week! This has a huge impact on children's literacy skills so please continue to do this over the next half term.
A choice of snack and a drink of milk (or water) are available for your child at our Snack Table each day. The payment for snack is £6 for this half term, and can be paid via ParentPay. Please speak to a member of the Nursery team if you have any questions about snack. Water is available for your child to drink at all times.
Please make sure that your child has a full set of spare clothes on their peg. As you can imagine when learning outdoors children can quickly get dirty and messy! We can easily change the children if we need to when there are spare clothes on their peg.
Please don’t forget to include: underwear, socks, shoes or pumps, a t-shirt, trousers or skirt and a jumper or cardigan. Please send these items in a carrier bag labelled with your child's name.
These clothes do not have to be school uniform, but should be something comfortable for your child to wear. If your child is changed at school and goes home in the change of clothes, please send the clothes back into school as soon as possible. Thank you!
Also, it would really help your child (and us!) if they can change into these clothes themselves.
In Nursery all of our children are special and unique and we appreciate the importance of building strong relationships with the children and families that we work with. Our children are divided into Key Worker groups. As a parent there are lots of things that you may want to share about your child with us at the beginning of the day such as if they are feeling poorly, if they haven’t slept properly, or if something has upset them, for example. You are welcome to share this with your child’s Key Worker and they will ensure that your child has a good day at Nursery.
Thank you to all those parents who are now registered to use Tapestry; we hope that you are enjoying seeing the evidence of your child enjoying their learning journey! If you are not yet registered, please speak to a member of staff who will be able to help you get signed up.
