Welcome back, we hope you all had a good Christmas break. We are all looking forward to the new children, parents and carers joining our Nursery family. We have a new member of staff joining the nursery, Vanilda Thornhill. Vanilda will be getting to know the children over the next few days so please introduce yourself to her. We also have a student teacher with us for this term, her name is Toshiko Lisle, she is completing a PGCE in education and will be working alongside Toni with Purple Group.
The Nursery has free flow play policy with activities that cover all seven areas of the Early Years curriculum both inside and outside. If you are unsure of what your child is learning please ask.
The new children will be settling in this week. The focus this term will be based on the core books Stick Man, covering the topic of winter and Owl Babies looking at personal and social development. Please remember to bring in wellingtons and a waterproof coat for use in the garden. Please make sure we have your up to date email address for Tapestry. We love to get your feedback on your children’s learning!
This term we will be focussing on the books Rosie’s Walk finding out about animals that live on farms, how to play with each other, shapes in the environment and travelling. We will then be looking at Handa’s Surprise, finding out about wild animals, other countries and healthy eating. In March we will have a Stay and Play Day, more information to follow.
