Mrs Wilding’s Weekly Words Lent 1
We wish everybody a very happy and healthy 2019 from all of us in the Nursery Department.
It has been a lovely start to the year with children coming in with smiling faces and full of chatter about their holidays and new toys. We have welcomed lots of new children into the nursery rooms and they are settling well, getting to know the staff, their new friends and the environment. The children who have moved up into Transition are having a wonderful time too and are now settling into the different routines after transferring from their nursery classes.
Our topic this term is based on “Seasons – Winter and Spring”. It would be lovely if you could support the children’s learning by talking about this at home.
The week commencing 14 January the nursery children will be learning about the colour black and generally settling in. Any small black item or toy would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about “detecting winter” and the letter r.
The Wednesday afternoon activity this term is cold cookery and we are conscious of the legislation regarding allergens. We are aware of children’s allergies listed on their medical forms which you will have completed at the time your children joined us but will keep packaging and a list of ingredients used for your information if you require it. On Wednesday 16 January we will be making fruit salads with the children using a variety of fruits and developing our knowledge of these and cutting skills.
Please remember that we are a nut and kiwi free environment and grapes / small circular shaped foods should be cut into 4 to reduce the risk of choking.
With the cold weather please send your child in wearing suitable clothing as we will be playing outside most days. Mittens are better than gloves unless your child is able to put them on without adult assistance and all clothing needs to be named.
