Head's Words Summer Term Week 1
Term has started really well with lots of happy, smiling faces and the new children seem to be enjoying the company of new friends and their classroom environments.
Miss Green tells me that the Transition group have been observing the growth of the tadpoles in their room, talking about what they can see outside in our garden area and about the outdoors environment at home. The children all bounced back into the room and have had a very good start to the term.
The week commencing 18th April the nursery children will be learning about the life cycle of a frog, the colour green, the number 1 and the letter s. Any small toys incorporating a frog or green would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about the outside environment generally and the letter i.
Our PTA have been incredibly generous and provided us with lots of equipment for the outdoors environment. The children have more sections to add to the metal climbing equipment and a “twin walker” which helps children to develop balance, co-ordination and co-operation.
Hopefully we will have lots of sunny weather this term so please sign permission slips and provide sun cream if you wish the staff to put this on your child. Please put sunscreen on your child each morning before arriving at the Nursery. Sun hats must be named.
With our large sandpit being used again on a daily basis and the children removing their shoes before climbing in please send them in wearing footwear that they can manage themselves. Most children at this age are unable to manage shoelaces without adult support.
Please remember to cut grapes into quarters and do not send in nuts (including nut products such as Nutella) or kiwi fruit as we have some children with allergic reactions to these products. The best drink at lunchtime is water as fruit juices do contain a lot of sugar and the children do not brush their teeth at the end of the meal.
If your child is leaving Claires Court Nursery at the end of this term please ensure that you put notice in writing as soon as possible but at the latest by half term. Children registered for Claires Court reception classes do not need to do this.
