Mrs Wilding’s Weekly Words Summer 7

With the topic of “planting and growing” continuing this week Nursery classes have observed how the seedlings are growing, planting some outdoors. We are looking forward to some crops later in the year. Certainly the rain will be helping the plants though not quite so good for practising for our Sports Day!

Transition children have been busy exploring different life cycles, and the caterpillars, which arrived last week, have grown considerably so we are really looking forward to their development and being able to release painted lady butterflies into the environment. To support the topic the children have been learning about symmetry and metamorphosis.

All the children have been busy making Father’s Day cards for Sunday which I’m sure you will love and we send our best wishes for a lovely time with your children on that special day for all fathers.

During the week commencing 17 June the Nursery children will be learning about “the life cycle of a butterfly”, the colour purple, the number 7 and the letter r. Any small toys incorporating these would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will continue learning about life cycles and the letter a.


Please remember that we operate an “Open Door” policy. This means that any time you wish to have a discussion about your child’s progress please ask the class leader who will agree a mutually convenient time for this.  

Important Dates

The PTA Summer Fete will be held on Sunday 23 June, 11.00am - 3.00pm, at Ridgeway, our Junior Boys site. The postponed circus event will be happening on the same day and is sold out. Tickets purchased for this will be sent home with your children so please check their bags.

Friday 5 July will be the Nursery Department Sports Day, starting at 9.15am and ending approximately an hour later. We would like all children to take part even if Friday is not a regular session. We are beginning to practise so please send your children in wearing footwear suitable for running. Parents are invited to come and cheer on the children. If your child will not be attending please let me know so that the teams and programme can be created as accurately as possible.
