Dear Nursery Parents/Carers,
Welcome back! We hope you all had a good summer break and enjoyed the lovely warm weather! This term we are settling in new children in both the Tiny Gems and the Little Jewels and are looking forward to meeting new people and making new friends.
This term our Core Book will be Owl Babies. Can we please have family photographs for our display board? Please remember nappies and wipes, a spare set of clothes for your child. Please name all coats and wellingtons, and please put a label on buggies so that the staff know whose buggy belongs to who. Library day will be on Wednesday and we will be restarting our games library later in the term.
We will have a range of core books this term; you are welcome to check our planning which will be available on the board outside the nursery. This year we are introducing special activities: Monday is fun day; check out our jokes on the white board at the entrance, Tuesday is shoes day; we will be practising taking off and putting on our shoes, Wednesday is friend’s day; looking after and making new friends, and Friday is try day; we will be trying new things every Friday.
On arrival please help the children hang up their coats and find their name cards to take to their key groups. We meet and greet at the start of every session so it is really important that the children are on time. Library will be on Wednesday and every child will need a book bag. look at a variety of traditional tales` then ‘Changes’, by Anthony Browne and Starting School, Charlie and Lola to link with the children moving on to Reception.
- A change of clothes for when the children get wet or dirty (we have a mud kitchen and the children LOVE mud pies!)
- Wellington boots and a water proof coat for the wet weather.
- Please wait outside the nursery doors at the end of the session and the children will come to you. We do this to ensure the children are safe and leave with the correct adult.
- Please turn off all mobiles before entering the school grounds as we are a mobile free zon
