Welcome to Nursery!

Spring 1 Newsletter

Welcome back, we hope you had a fantastic Christmas! This half term our topic is ‘Where will I go and how will I get there?’ This topic will include lots of learning about different transport and locations through stories and activities. We will also be thinking about seasonal changes and identifying some of the features of winter.

Star Moments
This term, we have changed the colour of our stars for the star moments board to green so we are able to put these in your child’s learning journey under the correct time of year. Please bring in a star anytime your child has done something to make you proud, we would like to make the board as full as possible!  We also have a secure Foundation Stage email which you can also use to send us photos or news about your child’s achievements.  The email address is and is regularly monitored by a member of the Foundation Stage staff.

Challenge Books
The children’s Nursery Challenge Books will be sent home again each Friday and to be returned on a Wednesday so these can be marked ready for the following week. Thank you for the responses with these, the children enjoy showing all their friends what they have been up to over the weekend.

Parent Reading Session
Our Parent Reading Sessions will continue every Friday at 11.10am for Morning Nursery and 2:45 for Afternoon Nursery. We will be holding this half terms Parent Activity Session on Friday 8th February, this will take place instead of the reading session on this week.

At least once every half term your child will be baking and we therefore request a small donation of £1.50 towards the cost of the ingredients. Thank you to those Parents who have already paid this contribution.  If your child has any allergies, could you please inform a member of staff as soon as possible, if you haven’t already done so.

Now the weather is turning colder we would recommend that children bring to school hat, scarves and gloves as well as a warm winter coat as we will be going outside everyday.  Please also make sure all you children’s clothing has their name in it.  We would also advise that the children bring a small bag containing a spare set of clothes, just in case we need to change them.
