Snakes!

We’ve had lots of fun with the unifix blocks this morning working together to make a really long snake! We used lots of language to describe the shape and size and needed to work as a team to fix any breaks!

Foundation Stage Performance

We are so looking forward to sharing our hard work with you in our Foundation Stage Performance “Away in a Manger” on Wednesday and Thursday.

Please remember to send your child in wearing black bottoms. We will be changing tops so any top from home is fine.

The timings are: 10:30 am on Wednesday and 1:45 on Thursday. We will be starting promptly at these times so please make sure you’re here on time. We will be opening the doors a few minutes before the show starts.

We are selling lucky programmes this year for £1. Two programmes from each performance will win a prize, so don’t forget to bring some change. Monies raised will go towards resources for the classrooms.

There will be a short time for photo opportunities at the end of the performances but please be aware we need to clear the hall for lunches so may be leading the children out promptly after the show.

Immediately after the performance on Wednesday, Nursery am children may be collected from the normal doors. Immediately after the Thursday show children may be collected from the normal doors.

Thanks for your support and we hope you enjoy the show.

Our New Playground

We are so pleased that we are finally using our wonderful new play area and climbing equipment! The children have been very patient and are loving the new space.

We are awaiting for a final piece of work to be completed before we can officially declare the garden open, and we are hoping this will happen before December.

Thanks to everyone who has helped with the fundraising so far! It’s been a mammoth task and all your support has been appreciated.

If anyone can make use of any of the green rolls of Astro please help yourself to them at the top of the garden.

Lastly, please do not let children play on the equipment before or after school.

Many thanks

Gardening

A great start to our garden clear up mission! The children worked really hard and had great fun collecting leaves and washing equipment. We will be finishing off on Wednesday so please remember to send them in their old clothes and any additional adult helpers will be most welcome!

Happy Diwali

Today we have been celebrating the Hindu Festival of Diwali. We have been very busy making Diva Lamps, learning some Bollywood dance moves and tasting some Indian foods, such as rice, poppadoms, curry sauce, mango chutney and naan bread.

Parent Meetings

At nursery, we operate an ‘open door policy’ and aim to make ourselves available to talk with you about your child as needed. However we do realise this isn’t always possible and so would like to offer some afternoons next week where staff will be able to meet with you.

In line with the school, on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon we will be available. If you wish to come in and chat with us please speak to your child’s key worker to arrange a time.

Thank you,

The Nursery Team

Garden Helpers

Next week we are clearing out and sorting the back garden so that we can have lots of fun in the mud kitchen and nature area. We will be cleaning, raking and clearing the flower beds and we need your help!

If you can spare an hour or two on Monday or Wednesday, please let us know! Bring in spades, rakes, wheelbarrows and garden hoovers. We will supply the tea and biscuits!

Children are advised to come into school wearing old clothes on those days as we will get mucky.

We are also looking to recruit some more regular volunteers for the garden in the shape of our ‘gardening committee’. This committee meets every few weeks to do small gardening jobs with Mrs Bennett. Please let us know if you would like to join us.

Halloween Fun Run

The children made a super effort today both with their costumes and their running skills! All of the children managed at least two laps of the field and those here all day actually did it twice!
Thank you to those who have already sent in your sponsorship money, we’d be grateful if the remaining forms and money could be sent in as soon as possible.
Thank you for joining in the fun and for helping to raise funds for our new outdoor area. We’re very excited as work commences on Monday!

Learning Stories

We have enjoyed observing the children over the last couple of weeks, we hope you have enjoyed reading the learning stories we have sent home. Please don’t worry if you haven’t yet received one as there are a few children we have yet to catch!

They form an important part of your child’s learning profile so please add any comments you wish to and send them back so we can plan your child’s next steps. We don’t make copies of them so the one we sent home is our only record.

We look forward to receiving your comments.

Many thanks,

The Nursery Team
