WELCOME TO NURSERY!
A Big Welcome to all our children, parents and carers to Nursery. We are looking forward to 2019 and the Spring and Summer Terms ahead. Our older children are especially looking forward to welcoming our new starters in January.
We welcomed Miss Kidd in September when she joined Mrs Barker on our Nursery teaching team. Miss Barnes is the Nursery teaching support assistant and this year Mrs Taylor resumes her Learning Mentor role and is in Nursery on Friday afternoons.
Our topic focus for the Spring term is Traditional Tales.
We will be focusing our learning on listening to and retelling stories. We will be making and creating as always and developing our counting, number recognition and physical skills. In RE we will be learning about celebrations and how families celebrate together. We will also be looking at what happens to our natural world in Winter.
Could we ask that Parents remember to name all uniform, shoes, coats and bags and to make sure that there is a bag of spare clothes on your child's hook at all times.
We now have a lot of children staying every day for full days, taking advantage of the government funded 30 hours scheme or the self funded paid top-up sessions that are available. The cost of an additional afternoon session is £10 and ALL children staying for full days are required to pay £2 per day for the lunchtime supervision.
There are some extra afternoon places available so please do check at the office.
Stay and Play Sessions are available each week (re-starting Tuesday 22nd Jan) for under 3s and their parents /carers /grandparents. We welcome all our little visitors on Tuesday mornings 9-10am and Wednesday afternoons 2.15-3.00pm. Please let your friends, family and neighbours know about us - our sessions are getting busier and it's a great way to meet other parents and let your child do all those messy activities!!
Please feel free to come and talk to us at the start and end of each day about anything that's on your mind - no question is too silly or awkward!
Please remember that it is your responsibility to renew your 30 hours voucher codes and give the information to the school office for when the funding checks are carried out.
Staying at Nursery for full days (30 hours funded or self funded) means that you agree to paying the £2 per day fee to cover lunchtime staffing and this should be paid a week in advance, with all payments kept up to date.
