Welcome to Nursery!

Spring 1 Newsletter

Dear Parents/Guardians

Welcome back, we hope you had a fantastic Christmas!

This half term our topic is ‘How did Buzz get to the moon?’ This topic will include lots of learning about space through different stories and activities.

As the weather is very cold, please send your child to nursery in the appropriate clothing. We welcome winter coats, hats, gloves and scarves but please write your child’s name in them.

This term, we have changed the colour of our stars for the star moments board to yellow 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!

The colour of the week will now change to the material of the week starting Monday 15th January with an item made from wood. You are welcome to bring in a toy or item made from this material on a Monday and this will be returned on a Friday. Please put your child’s name on these items so we can give them back at the end of the week.

The children’s Nursery Challenge Books will be sent home again each Friday and to be returned on a Monday 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.

Our Parent Reading Sessions will continue every Friday at 11am for Morning Nursery and 2:45 for Afternoon Nursery. We will be holding this half terms Parent Activity Session on Tuesday 6th February, this will take place 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; this money is due at the start of every half term. 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.

Thank you for your ongoing support and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.


Miss Simpkin, Mrs Hollis & Mrs Penhallurick
