Nursery Notice Board
The children have been working very hard this half term, especially during STEM Week. Thank you to everyone who supported this by completing the science challenge at home.
In school we discovered that feathers, shredded paper and bubble wrap could protect Humpty Dumpty should he ever fall from that wall again!
Our new topic after the holiday will be Once Upon a Time and we will be looking at traditional tales. We will be starting with 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff.'
Learning for week beginning 24th February:
The book we will be focusing on is 'Once Upon a Picnic' by John Prater.
The children will be:
- Using the language of size.
- Making pictures of trolls on the IWB (interactive whiteboard).
- Painting daffodils having mixed their own green colour.
Please see the Belmont Book Week 2020 parentmail which has details on how to enter the poster competition.
There is also information about the 'Belmont Readathon' which is a sponsored book event. We have sponsorship cards which we will give out on the Monday (Tuesday for Bananas) of the first week back should you wish your child to participate.
Some children have new water bottle. Please make sure your child's name is on their bottle. Thank you.
Wellington Boots/Boots - if your child wears wellington boots to school could you please ensure that they have a pair of shoes to change into for indoor wear. Thank you.
Bananas and Blueberries will have PE on Wednesday morning
Grapes and Strawberries will have PE on Thursday afternoon.
We will be encouraging the children to take off shoes and socks/tights and jumpers independently then to put them back on again. Please could you support this by ensuring your child wears something easy to remove on their PE days. Thank you.
Bananas and Blueberries will go to the library on Friday morning
Grapes and Strawberries will go to the library on Tuesday afternoon.
Please return books in good time so that your child can choose a new book to borrow. Thank you.
Water bottles and flasks - These should be clearly named and should only have water in them.
Packed lunch - Your child should bring a lunch on their allocated full day: Strawberries - Tuesday, Bananas - Wednesday and Grapes - Thursday.
Please ensure your child has no nut or sesame products and please can you cut any grapes and small tomatoes in half to avoid a possible choking hazard. Thank you.
Before and after school.
Please do not let any children play on apparatus, especially bikes and scooters, whilst they are waiting with you to come into school or to leave the playground. Thank you.
Coming into Nursery
When your child comes into Nursery they need to register themselves by putting their picture on the correct cupboard door. They then need to move into the cloakroom area and find another picture of themselves to use as a peg label. As we go through this first half term we will be expecting the children to be able to do this independently.
The gate will need to be locked by ten minutes after the session starts. If you are late arriving at school you will need to come in through the main entrance and register the children there. Thank you.
Calendar /Key dates
Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. putting on shoes and socks.
