Welcome to Nursery!
Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you all had a good Easter Break and enjoyed the glimpses of the sunshine. This is a fantastic term with some wonderful learning opportunities.
The children have come back full of enthusiasm and ready to learn. They have loved becoming farmers and developing their knowledge of farms. We have been exploring the book “Jasper’s Beanstalk”. The children have sowed seeds and are very excited to see them grow. We will be exploring how to measure using our seedlings exploring how many cubes tall they will be and finding new ways in which we can measure.
We shall also be exploring the following subjects: Healthy Me/Incredible me/ Mini-beasts/ Traditional Tales
Please can you continue to develop your child independence by encouraging them to put on their own on shoes and socks and their coat on? If your child can put on their coat, can you extend them by getting them to do the buttons or zip up? Can you develop your child’s independence at home encouraging them to self-care for the toileting and enable them to feed themselves at home? Model how to cut up their food encourage them to have ago. As the children are getting nearer to starting reception, they are expected to be able to feed themselves and use a knife and fork (Not using hands to pick up food).
As the weather is showing signs of summer, please can you ensure your child brings in a water bottle, and dressed for the weather? Sun cream on and a hat. Please ensure all items of clothing is labelled with your child’s name on including hats?
The children will have the opportunity to choose a library every Friday. We will collect their library books, with their homework books on Thursdays.
Please send in your child to school with a complete change of clothes (including socks) in a named bag. This will be kept on their peg. If possible, named wellington boots which can be kept at school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come in and speak to us.
