We would like to welcome all our Nursery children and their parents.
The Nursery children have made a fantastic start to the year and have begun to settle well into the daily routine. Many of them are already demonstrating confidence and independence as they engage in the activities.
The focus of our topic for this half-term will be All About Me. The children will have an opportunity to talk about their likes and dislikes, learn about each other and discover the similarities and differences between them.
For the morning session the Nursery gates will open at 8:45am and will close at 8:55am to allow the children to filter into the classroom. The session will end at 11:45am. The afternoon session will begin at 12:30pm, the gate will close at 12:40pm and the session will end at 3:30pm.
The children will have the opportunity to cook each Wednesday. This is a great social activity that helps to develop their turn taking skills, as well as their language and mathematics.
This term there will be opportunities for the children and our parent to engage in 2 workshops. There will be a drama workshop for the children, and a parents’ workshop in which we well learn explore the importance of play through a discussion and some practical hands-on activities.
Please ensure your child has a rain mac or a waterproof coat each day, as we play outside in all weathers. We would like the children to develop their independence when using the toilet, so please refrain from putting your child in clothing that has tricky fastenings such as buttons, as these can be difficult for the children to manage.
We believe that it is important for the children to be read to and to have the opportunity to read quality text books. We are focusing on five quality text books over two weeks. This will allow the children to become familiar with the stories and enhance the discussion and question that accompany the stories.
Children are encouraged to take a book home each Monday for an adult to read to them. They will need a book bag for this to happen after half term. Please make sure your child brings in their book bag on a Monday, where they will be shown where to place it in special box.
