Mrs Wilding's Words Autumn 10
Please send in your child’s costume for our Christmas Production as soon as you have it organised.
As in previous years we will be helping those less fortunate in our local community by providing the Maidenhead branch of the Salvation Army with Christmas hampers which the Year 10 girls will make up. The Nursery Department have been asked to provide biscuits which can be left in boxes in Transition or the Nursery Hall from now until 7 December. Many thanks in advance for your support. A very big thank you goes to those of you who have already given.
Christmas Jumper Day is on Friday 8 December and we would appreciate a minimum £1.00 donation for “Save the Children”. Please do not feel you have to go out and buy a special jumper for this. Some of the best have been tinsel and baubles etc attached to a regular top which the children have been involved in creating!
This week and next
Transition children have been busy talking about pets, have made graphs showing their favourites and dog hand puppets, and played matching games putting pets into appropriate homes. Their singing of the topic and Christmas songs is coming along well and again they went over to the main hall with Mrs Challis to practise on Thursday.
The nursery classes have been looking at monkeys and tigers this week, practising their line drawing skills when decorating the ceiling display number 9’s and creating tiger pictures. They have done lots of patterning activities and have learnt the ”Jungle Samba” song very well.
The week commencing 27 November the Transition children will be starting some Christmas preparations and the nursery classes will be looking at Arctic and Antarctic animals, the colour white, the number 10 and the letter 'u' so any small toy incorporating any of these will be a good “Show and Tell” item.
Please do not send your child in with laced shoes unless they are able to tie and untie these themselves. When getting a class of 16 dressed for outside, a lot of play time is lost if staff have to help each child with tricky footwear. With many thanks for your understanding.
