Happy New Year!

We hope you had a fantastic holiday. We had a very busy time in Nursery before the holidays. Father Christmas came to visit us! We also hope that you enjoyed our show, all of the children worked very hard and did a brilliant job! We are all very proud of them. X Factor here we come!

This half term we will be celebrating Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day and taking part in Internet Safety Day on Tuesday 11th February. E-safety is very important in today’s technological World. It is important that we help children of all ages stay safe online. If you would like some information about how you can help to keep your child safe, please visit the websites below:

Dinosaurs

This half term we are looking at the topic of dinosaurs. We will be looking after a dinosaur egg and talking about how we can protect the egg. We will explore various stories and information books, as well as using dinosaurs to help us with our maths. During P.E, will be exploring different ways of moving like a dinosaur, as well as having our weekly afternoon sessions with our coach, Fuzz. We’re going to have a roarrrsome time!

We can do it!

We would greatly appreciate if you could encourage your child to get dressed and undressed at home, including putting on their own socks and shoes. This will help them to become much more independent, and gives them a great sense of achievement. Please also ensure that your child is going to bed early, nursery children need 11 to 13 hours sleep a night. They also need a healthy breakfast or lunch before coming into nursery.

Please don’t forget to send a water bottle in for your child (water only please). Can you also make sure that your child has a bag of spare clothes on their peg? Please remember to put your child’s name in everything.

We’d like to welcome Miss Mellor to Nursery. She is a student teacher and will be with us for 5 weeks. This will be her final placement before she finishes her final year of a BA Hons in Primary Education. She is very excited about helping your child to learn this half term.

If you have any questions please just pop in and see us. We are always happy to help.

Thank you for your support.

Miss Healy, Miss Chelsea and Miss Mellor
