Nursery pupils…

Welcome to Nursery!

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Nursery! We hope you had a good summer break. We look forward to welcoming back our old children and new children into our Nursery this term. This year in nursery we have the following staff supporting your child’s learning,

Mrs Russell – Class Teacher

Mrs Conner – Early Years Practitioner

Miss Bowie – Early Years Practitioner

Miss Gibson- Early Years Practitioner

Autumn Term

This term we will begin by learning about ‘Ourselves’ and friendship’s and kindness and People who help us. Later on in the term we will also be learning about Harvest Festival. We will explore Autumn and link our learning with Animals that Hibernate, Diwali, Fireworks and Christmas. If you have any books, photographs that would support our learning this term please bring them in. Please make sure they are named. Thank you.

Homework Grid Each half term you will receive a homework grid. This gives you some ideas of activities you can do with your child at home which will contribute to their learning in school. Please choose one activity to do each week and return the grid with any work to Nursery each Thursday.

Every week we will be sending home a Nursery Rhyme for you to explore with your child. Rhyming teaches children how language works it also helps children with their speech. In class we will also be learning the rhyme.

PE Day be on Friday. Your child will be asked to take off their shoes, socks and jumpers. They do not need a PE kit. However, it would be helpful if you could make sure your child has shoes which are easy to fasten (such as Velcro) as this helps the children to develop independence in changing. It would also be helpful for the girls to wear socks not tights on PE day. For safety reasons, we tape over earrings, so if your child wears earrings you may will to remove them on PE days.

Library DayThe children will have the opportunity to visit the school library every Friday. We will collect their library books, with their homework grids on Thursdays. Please provide your child with a book bag.

Spare Clothes

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.

Clothing

Please ensure all clothing is clearly named. The children are required to wear school uniform (white polo shirt, red jumper/cardigans, grey/black trousers/jogging bottoms/skirts) Suitable shoes for running/climbing Velcro if possible. Suitable outdoor coat with a hood gloves and hat.

Learning Journals

We observe the children in the Nursery and record their learning journeys electronically. At the end of each half term you will receive your child’s e-journal via email. Please ensure we have an up to date email address for you.

Stay and Play

Every Thursday we invite you (along with any younger siblings) to stay and play in the Nursery for half an hour after dropping your child off. This is the time you can spend engaging with your child in their learning and play alongside them and their friends. You will have the opportunity to look at the displays in Nursery and find out what the children have been learning. We hope you will be able to join us for this special time! I would like to ask can we please ensure no mobile phones are used in Nursery this is to ensure we are safeguarding the children at all times.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come in and speak to us.

Yours Sincerely

Mrs Russell – Nursery Teacher
