  • Please can you encourage your child to not bring in toys from home. We cannot be responsible for any toys that are brought in and they may get lost or broken.

 

Clothing

  • If children get very wet, messy or have an accident they may need a change of clothes. Please provide your child with a spare change of clothes (top, trouser/skirt, pants, socks and shoes) in a bag on your child’s peg, clearly labelled with your child’s name.
  • Please provide your child with a pair of named wellington boots (these can be left at school under your child's peg).
  • The children will have the opportunity to play outside and often take up this opportunity. Therefore, it is important that children bring clothing appropriate for outdoor play. It is essential that your child brings a coat to Nursery each day. As the weather becomes colder please can we ask that you provide hats, gloves and scarves for the children. If we are lucky enough to have warm weather, please provide named sun cream and a sunhat.
  • Please can you clearly name your child’s school uniform, particularly coats and jumpers/cardigans. These are items of clothing that can easily be lost.

Once Upon a Time!

We hope you have had a lovely Christmas. I am sure you will agree that our Christmas nativity helped everyone get in the festive spirit! The topic chosen for this half term is, ‘once upon a time’. Nursery have really enjoyed listening to traditional fairy tales read by the adults in Nursery and are very excited to explore these stories further. Each week we will be focusing on a different theme and will participate in activities related to this.

 

We encourage children to bring in objects that are the chosen colour or begin with the chosen sound each week. Our weekly plans are displayed on the Nursery notice board and allow you to see activities we will be doing each week. Children will learn a new concept each week and there will be a linked challenge on the notice board. It would be lovely if you could bring in photographs of your child completing these challenges.
