Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery Page!

 

The Nursery Team:

 

Miss Burton - Teacher 

Mrs Wilding - Teaching Assistant  

Mrs Philips - Teaching Assistant

 

This term we are focusing on mark-making and writing skills and learning how to hold a pencil correctly. We will be continuing our weekly Write Dance (Scrimbling) sessions. Write Dance is a teaching method that provides movement opportunities so children can develop the physical skills needed to develop their mark-making and later, handwriting skills. Find out more at http://writedancetraining.com/
We will be holding a workshop for parents on Thursday 8th March and a letter will be sent out shortly.

 

We are also focussing on communication skills, specifically questions and answers. The children have been meeting a variety of colourful characters to encourage them to ask relevant questions. We would like to invite parents in to Nursery to participate in short 'Show and Tell' sessions. You may wish to talk about a hobby or a pet (you may bring small pets in to Nursery), or we have many parents who come from different countries who may wish to talk about aspects of their culture. This is a great way for children to develop their listening and speaking skills. Please speak to a member of staff if you would like to take part.

 

 

 

 

 

BOOK CHANGE

Please join us in Nursery every Tuesday morning to help your child select a book to take home.

Books are changed every week.

Please note that book bags need only be brought into Nursery on Tuesdays for Book Change.

Thank you!

 

NURSERY CHECKLIST


PLEASE BRING TO NURSERY:
Wellington boots: To keep your child’s shoes looking new, your child will need to bring in a pair of wellington boots that they will change into when they play in the outside area. They will need to be in a bag (preferably cotton) that the children can open and close themselves and this should also be labelled with their name.
Pumps: the children will need to bring in a pair of pumps that are also kept in school for when they have their PE lesson in the hall. These should be labelled, but the bags for the pumps are provided by the Nursery.
Clothing: Please label all items of their school uniform and especially wellington boots, pumps and shoes as they can all look the same! The children dress up and remove layers of clothing which can easily become lost if not labelled clearly.
School bags: Space is at a premium, so ideally the children only need to bring one bag preferably a book bag.


SCHOOL FUND
We ask for a contribution of £1 per week which we use to purchase resources for Nursery, such as ingredients for playdoh, cooking and craft resources. This can be given directly to the Nursery staff and can be paid weekly or termly

 

Toys in Nursery
Please can we ask that children do not enter the Nursery with toys. They are often left behind, lost or get broken.
