Children starting school in September will have lots of support during this transitional time. Details of meetings for new Reception children are to follow.
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to working with you all this term.
Thank you for completing our Nursery questionnaire. Your comments and suggestions have all been very useful. For further information about what your child has been learning, please see the website or the Nursery window. I will write a brief summary about the areas of learning your child will experience every week. As always, you can contact me at any time.
If you have not yet made an appointment to speak to me for a Parent/Teacher meeting, please ask for an available time slot.
I am able to speak with everyone, however, these appointments are vital for children who are starting Reception Class in September.
Holly and Fiona will continue to speak to families of our younger children on a daily basis.
Every Wednesday, you are invited to visit our Nursery Library and choose a book to read at home with your child.
Please complete the sheet in the back of the book and if you would like to complete a book review, then please send it into Nursery to go into your child's Learning Journey.
If you would like to help with our Library, then please speak to me. Happy Reading Everyone!📚📚📚
Please make sure that your child has a pair of Wellington boots in nursery. Our garden is really muddy at the moment!
We watched this in Nursery today. You may like to look at it with your child at home.
