There are other people who will be working with you too ; Mrs Akhtar is our lunchtime assistant for the full time children and Mrs Masters will be covering the teacher's PPA time every Monday morning. We also welcome Mr Ali on a Thursday morning for our weekly P.E. session.

Curriculum

Our topic for the Second half of the Autumn term is: 

What Happen's When It's Dark?

Core Literacy Texts:- Knuffle Bunny, Owl Babies, A Dark, Dark Tale, Peace At Last and My Mother's Sari.  

We will be singing a range of popular nursery rhymes and reading stories chosen by the children to help them feel welcome in the environment.

Things to know

Please remember that the nursery curriculum requires free access to the outside area in all weathers and your child will need warm waterproof clothing for cold, wet days.

  • 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.
  • Shoes should not have high heels and sandals and other summer shoes must support the child’s foot and be securely attached with a suitable strap.
  • Toys should not be sent in to nursery.
  • The snack table is available throughout the session providing fresh fruit and or vegetables. Water is available at every session and milk will also be offered daily.
  • Please remember to label all of your child’s clothes with their name, including a change of clothes, which should be left in a bag on your child’s peg.
  • The morning session starts at 8:45 am and ends at 11:45pm The afternoon session starts at 12:15pm and ends at 3:15pm Please ensure your child is on time. Please call the school on 020 8556 7904 and inform us if anyone else is picking your child up.
     

If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015 they are due to start in Reception class at a primary school from September 2019.

You must apply for a Reception place for your child even if they attend a school nursery or have an older brother or sister at your preferred school. If your child currently attends a nursery attached to a school this does not give them any priority for a place in Reception at that school.

The closing date for school applications in Waltham Forest is the 15th January 2019

The application can be completed online.

Please visit the Waltham Forest council website for more information.

If you require some help with this process please feel free to ask Miss Rorke.
