Dear Parents/Carers,

We hope you have all enjoyed the spring term in Nursery and are looking forward to a two week Easter break! The children have worked very hard and we cannot believe that the children only have one term left in Nursery!

Our focus topic for the first part of the summer term is ‘Space”.   On the reverse of this letter you will find an overview outlining what we will cover each week. This half term we will be continuing Phase 2 of the “Letters and Sounds” programme which introduces children to the sounds e, u, r, h and b. We would appreciate it if you could support us by bringing objects in which begin with the sound of the week for the table. Please make sure any objects are named so they can be returned at the end of the week and please don’t bring any valuable or special items into Nursery.

Books and Book bags

Please ensure that your child has a book bag that they bring in to school every day.  This can be used to take books home from our ”Book Borrowing Library”.  Please remember to sign out books borrowed from the library in the cloakroom and to cross it out when the book is returned.

Uniform and spare clothes

Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly named.  Every child will also need a bag of weather appropriate spare clothes to hang on their peg.  If your child has had a toilet accident we will change your child into their spare clothes and put the wet clothes in a plastic bag on your child’s peg.  If your child has had to borrow Nursery spare clothing, please wash them and return the clothes to us as soon as possible.  If you do have any spare clothing at home that you would like to donate to Nursery we would really appreciate it.

Coats and bags

Please continue to encourage your child to remove their own coat and bag when they arrive and put it on their peg.  We are continuing to encourage the children to become more independent and take care of their belongings, in preparation for Reception.

Playdough rota

Thank you to the parents who have already volunteered to make playdough.  Just in case you have forgotten your slot, the rota is on display in the cloakroom. Please ask a member of the Nursery team if you would like the recipe again and thank you in advance for signing up for any remaining slots.

Toys from home

Please continue to encourage your child to leave their toys at home. Nursery cannot be responsible for toys which go missing.

If you are concerned about anything, please do not hesitate to come and have a chat with either Miss Maiden or Miss Cliff.
