Term 2

I hope you have all enjoyed your week off school!

We are very much looking forward to seeing our Nursery class back again next Wednesday.

On Thursday we are celebrating the Big Draw  across the whole school. Nursery will have the opportunity to experience a variety of drawing techniques, tools and surfaces as part of their day.

Over the next few weeks we are going to be talking about helpers in the community (nurses, doctors, firefighters, rubbish collectors, bus drivers, shop keepers, teachers, etc.) before moving on to think about Christmas.

If your child has anything they’d like to bring in to support our topic, eg books, pictures, items of interest, we’d love to see them; or if they have stories about people they know or experiences they have had, we would be very interested in hearing about them. Perhaps a member of the family is a helper in the community? Maybe they’d like to come in and talk to us about what they do? If it helps, do write us a note, or have a quick word to let us know what your child may want to talk about – little ones sometimes forget or need encouragement to stand up and talk to the teacher or their friends and it can help if we know that they are keen to share.

Nearly end of Term 1

It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly the end of term.

In Nursery (Wed-Fri) we have had a brilliant first term. The children have settled incredibly well and we have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them.

Just a reminder that next week we are only in school Wednesday pm and Thursday. Friday is an INSET day for teachers.

We will be finishing up our learning on Autumn and Harvest with related songs, crafts and activities.

Just a friendly reminder that if you haven’t returned your Home School Agreement, could you do so please, and then I will be able to post more on this blog, eg photos. In addition, there is always the ILD with regular updates and photos of what your child has been getting up to in class.

Welcome to Nursery (Wed-Fri class)

It’s hard to believe that our Nursery children have now been in school for 4 weeks! They have transitioned really well from part time to full time and I have been amazed at how well the children are coming into school. There are many smiles as the children arrive (from both children and parents/ carers!) and the tears are few and far between.

Thank you for your support in helping the children settle so quickly and for helping them to see school as a fun, safe and happy place to be.

We have spent the last few weeks settling in, helping the children feel comfortable and confident. We have also been talking about seasons and, in particular, Autumn and Harvest.

I look forward to posting more updates on here about what we have been getting up to. Watch this space!
