Full school day
Milk and fruit will be provided daily for your child and we will also cater for children who have allergies. If your child brings a packed lunch, can we ask that you do not send them with nuts and please make sure that their grapes are cut in half.
If you would like your child to stay for school lunch or attend breakfast and after school club then please book/pay through our SCOPAY.
During your childs time in Nursery we will be supporting them in developing positive relationships. We will be helping your child to understand the feelings of others by labelling emotions such as sadness, happiness, feeling cross, lonely, scared or worried. we will teach children to use and care for materials, and then trust them to do so independently, ensuring that key practioners offer extra support to children in new situations. We will introduce vocabulary to enable children to talk about their observations and to ask questions. We will keep you up to date on your childs learning through our Tapestry app and would really appreciate it if you could share your own observations from home. The children love to share their photos of days out or family celebrations with their friends. This increases confidence and helps the children to understand the things that make them unique. It also enables them to talk about some of the similarities and differences in relation to friends or family.
Please make sure all uniform has your childs name inside and remember Thursday is Woodland Learning so your children will need their wellies and waterproofs. During the winter months, could you please send an extra pair of socks in your childs bag
Things you can do at home to help your child-
- Support and encourage your child to use the toilet
- Encourage your child to put on their own coat.
- Challenge them to get dressed and put their shoes on.
- Feed themselves using a knife and fork.
- Read stories together and talk about whats happening.
Let us know how your child gets on with any achievements or challenges,we would love to celebrate these in our class.
The staff, are available after school on a daily basis, should you wish to speak to us, regarding your child. Our parent partnership is of high importance to us as we believe this is key to your child’s growth and future potential. Please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything which might affect your child’s emotional well-being, e.g. loss of a pet, not sleeping well, moving to a new house.
We are delighted with how well our children are settling into their new environment and gaining an awareness of our expectations, class rules and routines. We are encouraging them to develop their self-help skills and explore all our areas.
Getting children reading !
Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out what's printed on the page. Through hearing stories, children are exposed to a wide range of words. This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding when they listen, which is vital as they start to read.
This is a great website
Emotional wellbeing activity
One of the NHS 5 steps to mental health and wellbeing is to connect with people. Over this coming week we would like you to think about connecting with someone. It could be a neighbour who doesn't have many visitors at this time, a grandparent who lives far away or a class friend who you know is finding it difficult not being at school with their friends. Social media is one way you can do this but could you think of another way e.g. write them a letter, create a card, make a video of yourself sharing what you/ve been up to etc.
Remember to think how you can safely get this to the person.
