Welcome to Nursery!!
We’ve had a lovely time getting to know the children and their families and, with your support, the majority of the children are now well settled and are busy each day exploring the indoor and outdoor environments.
As we spend much of our day outdoors, we would like to remind you that your child needs a pair of named wellington boots to be kept at school. We go out and learn in all weathers, the wetter the better! Boots are also needed for our Forest school sessions on Fridays, for which we also advise all children wear trousers.
Our Harvest Celebration is coming up next Wednesday (3rd) and we hope you will be able to join us for this celebration and to watch our performance in the KS1 hall. If you would like to make a food donation for the church, this would be greatly appreciated.
The morning children’s harvest festival will start at 9.30am
The afternoon children’s harvest festival will start at 2.30pm
Soon we will be adding you to your child’s online journal so please look out for a ‘Tapestry’ link in your emails. We look forward to sharing your child’s learning journal with you in this way.

Welcome to your last half term in Nursery
As you can see, the weather is glorious and the children will be spending time playing outside in the sunshine. Please remember to apply sun cream to your child before school and provide them with a named sunhat.
On Friday’s, we will continue to enjoy Forest school learning, so if you would like, your child may bring a named water bottle to school for those sessions (this may include water or weak sugar free squash).
Our summer concert is fast approaching and we are beginning to practice our dance. All Nursery children are invited to join us that afternoon (AM children that attend Pre-school will be joining us with the Pre-school staff). Our dance style is African and we ask that children wear dark shorts or leggings (no skirts) and a coloured top/t-shirt in yellow, red or green.
Please note that there is no Nursery sessions on the transition day, Thursday 12th July.
More info soon with regards the last few days and celebrations.
Enjoy the sunshine whilst it lasts.
Thank to all those who have added home learning to their child’s Tapestry journal, it’s lovely to share their in home experiences in this way.
We can’t believe that we are nearing the end of this half term already and here are a couple of reminders.
On Friday 18th children may come to school dressed in red, white and blue in celebration of the coming Royal wedding. A tea party will take place in the afternoon and we are asking for donations to come into school on or by Friday morning. Children who stay all day we still need to bring lunch.
Next Friday 25th May is sports day
Nursery AM races 9.30am start
Nursery PM races 1.15pm start
You are very welcome to watch, please arrive using the main school gates and join us on the field. We ask that you remain on the outside of the track during the day. Children can wear suitable clothes for running e.g. t-shirts (any colour), joggers or shorts.
Please consider the weather and apply sun cream and provide your child with a hat if the weather is hot and if it’s chilly a warmer top. All children will need a named water bottle on the day.
The children have been practicing and we are all looking forward to the day.
Lastly we would like to wish you a happy half term break.
Welcome back to Nursery we are looking forward to the coming half term and hope you are too.
We have been amazed by the children’s home learning and thank you for adding these to Tapestry as well as bring them into school to share.
We have had some parents ask about dressing up on Thursday and what is suitable. We suggest a character from an age appropriate story book, such as Brown Bear, We’re going on a Bear hunt, Each Peach Pear Plum, The train ride, Jasper’s Beanstalk, The Gruffalo etc or a character from their favourite story or a character from a Traditional Tale such as The Three Little Pigs, The Gingerbread Man, Little Red Riding Hood etc or lastly a character from a Nursery Rhyme.
Dressing up can be achieved simply by wearing their own clothes and adding a prop, headband (e.g. with ears), face paint, etc. Please don’t feel that you have to purchase an outfit for the day. The other option is that children can wear their own clothes and bring the book with them to share.
Please note that Nursery parent consultations will be held in the Starfish Reception classroom and not the Nursery, please use the side entrance near the main school reception and the KS1 hall. Thanks you
