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.

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.
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.
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.
