Claires Court Maidenhead

from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding’s Weekly Words Summer 5


I am aware that some parents and carers are forgetting to push the bolt across to secure the Nursery gate. Whenever you enter or leave it is imperative that you slide the bolt to secure the gate for the safety of your child and other children. This applies to all hours including Breakfast Club and After School Care times.

The children in the Nursery classes, Transition and Reception were able to hold the chicks this week and have been amazed by the growth and change in a few days. As I sit in my office I will miss the sound of chirping as they are being rehomed by a family of one of our Sixth Formers. They have promised to send pictures as the chicks develop into hens and I will share these with you.

The topic on minibeasts has been really enjoyed by the Nursery children this week and they have made their own minibeast models with clay and a variety of resources! They have also been out with their clipboards searching and recording the minibeasts they found in the garden, under logs and watering cans; and have created some wonderful pictures.

Transition children have had a busy week talking about and deciding on their favourite weather and have created weather wheels, bar charts and symbols. They talked about appropriate clothing for different types of weather.

Next week is Half Term so the week commencing 3 June the Nursery classes will be learning about planting and growing, exploring the grounds here, the colour pink, the number 5 and the letter p. Any small toys incorporating topic related objects and pink would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week.

Transition children will also be learning about parks and woodland, the letter c, and visiting our Junior Boys site to support their learning in this topic. (Please ensure that you have signed the permission slip for your child to go).


Please check your emails as I have sent this term’s observations of your children on behalf of my staff.

Have a lovely Half Term with your children.
