from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding's Weekly 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 the Nursery Hall from now until Wednesday 12 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 14 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!

Christmas lunch is on the 14 December so if your child is booked in for lunch on Fridays please can you let their teacher know and fill in this form asap if they will be having a hot lunch rather than a packed one that day as the kitchen need to order the food.

This week and next

The children have been busy talking about seasonal changes, which seems very appropriate with the drop in temperature we have experienced this week! Their singing of the topic and Christmas songs for their Production “Seasons’ Greetings” on 11 December is coming along well and again they went over to the main hall with Mrs Challis to practise on Thursday.

The week commencing 26 November the children will be discussing winter clothing, the colour blue, the number 10 and the letter b 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 / boots 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. Similarly with gloves; unless your child can put these on independently please send in named mittens. With many thanks for your understanding.

Staff News

I am really sorry to be writing this but Mrs Duxbury (Honeycomb class leader) is leaving us at Christmas to spend more time with her own young children. In her role as a nursery assistant and as a leader of both Honeycomb since last January and a Transition class in the past she has been an amazing member of my staff over the last 10 years and will be missed hugely. I wish her all the very best and look forward to her returning when the time is right for her. We are fortunate though as Mrs Ainsley will return from our Junior Boys division to lead the Honeycomb class and we are all looking forward to having her in the Nursery again.
