Nursery Notice Board
The children have been settling in well to the routines and the children staying for the whole day have coped very well.
Next week - 21st October to 25th October - the Nursery is closed for half term holiday. Nursery opens again on Monday 28th October.
Learning week beginning 28th October:
- Learning about celebrations - Diwali and Halloween.
- Counting objects accurately.
- Recognising names.
Our book focus for the week will be, "Winnie the Witch" and we will have a 'potions lab' role play area. We will also look at some Meg and Mog books.
Parent Teacher Meetings - don't forget to sign up for a time on the page by the door if you want to talk about how your child is settling in Nursery.
BHSA Christmas Card Project
Each year the children have the opportunity to make a Christmas card which you can have printed. There has been a parentmail letter which will give more details. The children have all come home with a letter detailing paper size and what media can be used. If you want your child to take part, any artwork must be returned to school by Tuesday 29th October.
Wellington Boots - if your child wears wellington boots to school could you please ensure that they have a pair of shoes to change into for indoor wear. Thank you.
Bananas and Blueberries will have PE on Wednesday morning
Grapes and Strawberries will have PE on Thursday afternoon.
We will be encouraging the children to take off shoes and socks/tights and jumpers independently then to put them back on again. Please could you support this by ensuring your child wears something easy to remove on their PE days. Thank you.
Bananas and Blueberries will go to the library on Friday morning
Grapes and Strawberries will go to the library on Tuesday afternoon.
Please return books in good time so that your child can choose a new book to borrow. Thank you.
Water bottles and flasks - These should be clearly named and 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 and small tomatoes in half to avoid a possible choking hazard. Thank you.
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.
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.
Calendar /Key dates
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. putting on shoes and socks.
