Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Summer 3

The pond is alive with water life and the children are fascinated by all the movement and development of the tadpoles, newts, water boatmen and dragonfly nymphs, to name but a few.

Transition children have been learning about the different parts of a plant and the uses of these. They set up an experiment with carnations, celery and coloured water and observed how the plants changed colour. They went on a “spot the plant challenge” in the grounds, recording those they discovered. Bean seeds were planted in jars and they made a Mr Grass Head so it will be lovely to see these develop over the coming weeks. Pictures of flowers were created using a variety of shapes so it has been a very busy week.

Please do not use your mobile phones within the Nursery area for child protection reasons. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Please name all items of uniform clothing and footwear and send in sunhats as the better weather approaches. If you wish sun cream to be applied by staff during the day please provide a named, high factor cream and sign the permission slip. Ensure that you have applied cream on your child before coming to school so that your child is protected until afternoon.

As we approach summer we will be out on the main field on a regular basis practising for our Sports Day so please send your children in wearing appropriate footwear for running and physical activity. It will take place on Friday 6 July starting at 9.15 a.m and all parents are invited.
