Nursery Notice Board
The children did really well with the Nativity performances this week and we are very proud of them all. Thank you for your support with the costumes.
We will be having our parties on Thursday afternoon for Grapes and Strawberries (Grapes will still need to bring in their packed lunch) and on Friday morning for Bananas and Blueberries.
Please send in your £1 donation towards the cost of the party food by Wednesday if you have not already done so, thank you.
We do not as yet have any volunteer to be Santa for the parties - if you are able to help us please let us know, thank you.
Thank you to everyone who made donations of breadsticks or tissues. We now have plenty of both so will not need any more until the new year.
PLEASE CAN WE REMIND YOU TO MAKE SURE THE GATE IS CLOSED WHEN YOU BRING YOUR CHILD TO NURSERY AND WHEN YOU COLLECT THEM. THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL TIMES, ESPECIALLY AT LUNCHTIME WHEN THERE ARE CHILDREN PLAYING IN THE PLAYGROUND, THAT THE GATE HAS BEEN LEFT OPEN. Thank you for your cooperation with this.
Water bottles and flasks - These should be clearly named as we have some children with the same bottles and it is a bit confusing ensuring they get the right one. Also the bottles should only have water in them.
Packed lunch - Your child should bring a lunch on their allocated full day: Strawberries - Tuesday, Bananas - Wednesday and Grapes - Thursday.
Please ensure your child has no nut or sesame products and please can you cut any grapes in half to avoid a possible choking hazard. Thank you.
Learning next week:
The children will be: Making party hats
Playing a memory game (Kim's Game).
Exploring the different sounds made by percussion instruments and making patterns.
Before and after school.
Please do not let any children play on apparatus, especially bikes and scooters, whilst they are waiting with you to come into school or to leave the playground. Thank you.
Bananas: Tim Clyde, Alexandra Truong
Blueberries: Aamer Fatah
Grapes: Rena Chahal, Carly Hyams, Noemie Olivero-Walker
Strawberries: Jeannine Mosman
Coming into Nursery
When your child comes into Nursery they need to register themselves by putting their picture on the correct cupboard door. They then need to move into the cloakroom area and find another picture of themselves to use as a peg label. As we go through this first half term we will be expecting the children to be able to do this independently.
The gate will need to be locked at 9.10. If you are late arriving at school you will need to come in through the main entrance and register the children there. Thank you.
Bottles and flasks
Please can you make sure that your child's bottle or flask of water is clearly named as we are having children taking the wrong water.

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.
