Welcome to Nursery

FullSizeRender

The children have returned to nursery full of smiles and excitement to be back.  They are all settled now and very eager to learn.  Now that the children are comfortable we can move forward with a more distinctive teaching style.  The children will experience learning as a class during carpet time and as part of smaller groups.  The learning will be fun and full of lots of songs and moving around.  Our focus will be on listening and attention as well as improving and extending vocabulary.

To help us do this we will use stories and props.  Some of our key stories this half term will be Owl Babies, Ten in the Bed, Maisie stories, Peace At Last, A Dark Dark Tale, My Mother's Sari plus many more.

This half term we are learning all about what happens when it's dark. We will be reading books about nocturnal animals and thinking about what happens outside as we sleep. As the nights get darker and the daylight hours get shorter, we will discuss new things they may experience in their environment such as fireworks and keeping safe when walking in the dark.  There will also be lots of singing of the children’s favourite songs. You will find a brief overview of the topic and some ways to help you extend your child’s learning over the page.

 

Please remember that the nursery curriculum requires free access to the outside area in all weathers. Literacy, maths and science activities are planned for the outside environment and all children are expected to participate. To ensure they are comfortable at nursery please remember to dress them in clothes they can move freely in and are able to manage when going to the toilet. For safety reasons shoes should not have high heels and should support the child’s foot securely. In wet or muddy weather a pair of wellington boots is sensible.

 

Please ensure coats are clearly labelled with your child’s name. A bag with spare clothes (including socks) is also very useful. Again please clearly label your child’s bag.

 

The snack table is available throughout the session providing fresh fruit or vegetables. Water is available every session.

 

The morning session starts at 08:45am and finishes at 11:45pm. The afternoon sessions begins at 12:15pm and finishes at 3:15pm. Please be prompt. The gate is secured 10 minutes after the start of the session to ensure the safety of all children. Please use this 10 minutes to look at your child’s special book, to change their reading book (book bags will be handed out soon) and pass on any information you wish to share.

 

It’s a privilege to work with your children. We are really looking forward to the term ahead.

 

Yours sincerely,

Miss Rorke, Miss Hart and Miss Jolly
