What a fantastic half term we have just had in Nursery. We have had lots of fun and learnt lots! Please visit the news section on the website to read all about it in our weekly newsletters.

Last half term you helped nursery and day-care to raise £91.77 for Children in Need. Thank you very much for your generosity!

Your child has been working very hard indeed. We all know our five golden rules and can now follow them. In Nursery we are all brilliant at being kind and looking after each other. I am delighted to see so many children on the shooting star every day! It has been wonderful to see lots of friendships developing. I can’t wait to see those friendships become stronger.  All of the children have grown in confidence a great deal and are very settled. It is a joy to see the children coming into Nursery with big smiles on their faces. They are now exploring more areas of nursery and talking much more to friends and teachers. We love sharing our ideas. The children especially enjoy helping their teachers to work out what day it is as well as talking about the weather during carpet time.

We will also be settling in some new children this half term, and I know that your child will make their new friends feel very welcome and be excellent role models.

This half term, we will still be focusing on our communication skills and consolidating what we have learnt. We will also be practising our counting lots and making sure that we are saying our numbers in the correct order. We will also be learning about shapes and finding out about their properties. Last half term we were learning the story We’re Going on a Bear hunt. This half term we will continue to explore the story together. We will also be learning some songs to perform for you in December. We would love you to come and see our show! We will let you know the date and time.

Everyone is much better at putting their coats on, but please still support your child in doing this at home. As well as getting dressed and undressed, particularly their shoes and socks. We will start doing P.E this half term, and it will be helpful if they can do their own shoes and socks. P.E will be every Thursday, can you please make sure your child is wearing suitable clothes such as tracksuit bottoms or leggings.

It is much colder now, can you please ensure that your child has warm clothing including a winter coat, hat, scarf and gloves. You are also welcome to leave a pair of wellies at school for when your child is playing outside.

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. Some children are also bringing toys in from home, can you please make sure that toys are not brought into school. They may get lost or broken.

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 Kovelle and Mrs Halima
