Nursery Notice Board
The children have been working very hard in Nursery. They have been doing lots of mark making - you may have noticed how colourful the ground was in our playground recently! The children have also been using the props to recite the different Nursery Rhymes we have been learning.
After the holiday we will be looking at traditional tales and will start with the Gingerbread Man.
Enjoy the half term holiday and we will see you in the week beginning 25th February.
Wellington 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.
We have started PE sessions this term
Bananas and Blueberries have PE on Wednesday morning
Grapes and Strawberries have PE on Thursday afternoon.
We are 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 go to the library on Friday morning
Grapes and Strawberries 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.
Thank you to everyone who made donations of breadsticks or tissues. We now have plenty of both and will send out a new request when we are nearing the end of our supplies.
Water bottles and flasks - These should be clearly named as we have some children with the same bottles and it is a bit confusing ensuring they get the right one. Also the bottles 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 in half to avoid a possible choking hazard. Thank you.
Learning next week:
The children will be: Using 3D shapes to build with and learning some of the names of these shapes.
Using scissors effectively to make a Gingerbread Man collage.
Acting parts from the story of the Gingerbread Man.
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.
Bananas: Tim Clyde, Alexandra Truong
Blueberries: Aamer Fatah
Grapes: Rena Chahal, Carly Hyams, Noemie Olivero-Walker
Strawberries: Jeannine Mosman
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 at 9.10. If you are late arriving at school you will need to come in through the main entrance and register the children there. Thank you.
Bottles and flasks
Please can you make sure that your child's bottle or flask of water is clearly named as we have several similar flasks.
Calendar /Key dates
Half Term - Nursery will be closed for the whole of the week beginning 18th February 2019.
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. times tables and spellings.
