from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding’s Weekly Words Summer 4

We are all very excited about “Hatch Watch” taking place in the Nursery hall with the ten eggs arriving on Tuesday. We were amazed on Wednesday morning to discover eight had hatched overnight but saw the hatching of one take place and now have a healthy brood of nine chicks at the time of writing this! We have four boy and five girl chicks (one did not survive unfortunately). This coming week they should be strong enough to handle so there is more excitement to come. The nursery children have been talking about the life cycle of a chick and are enjoying watching the chicks and listening to the chirping. Lovely displays are appearing in their rooms. The tadpoles in Honeycomb have grown legs so it will not be long before they are transferred to the pond.

Transition children have had a busy week talking about the different types of weather and have suns for their display area. Sunflower seeds have started to grow, the beans are developing well, the grass seed for Mr Grass Head will need a lawnmower soon and cress has gone home to be enjoyed on salads or in sandwiches.

During the week commencing 14 May the nursery classes will be learning about the life cycle of a butterfly, the colour orange, the number 3 and the letter j. Any small toys incorporating topic related objects and orange would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will continue learning about weather and the letter j.


Please return your sessions booking sheets for the autumn term as soon as possible and before half term as I will be allocating space for new children after this date.

If sunshine is forecast please apply sun cream to your child BEFORE arriving and provide named sunhats (to be left here if possible). We will reapply sun creams after noon if permission slips have been signed and a named cream provided.

Please send children in wearing shoes suitable for physical activities such as running and climbing. Now that the warmer weather is on the way the temptation is to wear shoes such as Crocs which are not ideal when using some of the nursery outdoors equipment or running and we want to avoid accidents. Many thanks for your cooperation in this matter.
