Mrs Wilding's Words Autumn 6
- Please note that individual photographs are being taken on Monday morning. If this is not a booked session for your child but you would like a picture taken then please come in after 8.30a.m. and wait to have it taken. These are generally lovely photographs and make good Christmas presents for the family!
- We really hope that your child will move into our own Reception classes here at Claires Court and registration is then directly with us. If you have not already done so, but this is your intention, please complete a registration form either online or collect a paper version from the office as transfer from the Nursery is not automatic unless you have signed the paperwork. There is no further registration fee as this was paid before your child started with us. For those children who turn 4 years old by 31.08.2018 and not staying with us you will need to register with the RBWM for a state school place for next September. Information can be found on their website here. Please see the paper letter from RBWM about this which you will receive this week.
- Please ensure that you supervise your children as soon as they have been handed over by the nursery staff as we are aware that some are running off and sometimes parents forget to bolt the gate!
Please avoid parking within the school carparks when dropping off and collecting your children. By the Nursery gate on College Avenue there are 30 minute parking places on both sides of the road which extends as far as our boundary next to Donnington House. Beyond this and for the remainder of College Avenue residents parking means you cannot park between 11.00am-13.00pm but is available for the rest of the day. Please help us with this as staff are unable to park in these areas because of the time restrictions and therefore need the school spaces.
The children in the three nursery classes have learnt lots about pets, are singing the “Doggy in the window” song and role played veterinary practices. Great excitement in the rooms could be heard in my office when the children were able to handle Shelley and Tiny Tinsel, the Reception class tortoises. The children have used their observational skills by looking at toy pets and pictures and some amazing paintings are the result.
Transition children have been talking about British wildlife and using “Show and Tell” opportunities to talk to their friends about the related toys and pictures they had brought in. It was lovely to hear a girl talking about rabbits being nocturnal and living in a burrow as she showed her fluffy toy rabbit to the group. Language and confidence are certainly developed in Transition.
The week commencing 16 October the nursery children will learn about “British Wildlife”, sing a related song and do a range of crafts. Their number is 6, the colour is brown the letter is q. Transition children will be investigating “Wildlife habitats” and the letter c.
