Mrs Wilding’s Weekly Words Summer 9
Nursery classes have been practising for Sports Day; they are getting faster week by week and, oh joy, they seem to be staying within the track rather than running across the field! The children have been busy learning about trees and have created some wonderful paintings and leaf printing. On Monday they all watched the tree surgeons who were working on a diseased tree across the road from the Nursery and were amazed to see and hear the work done but we will all miss that large old cedar!
Transition children have had a very busy week looking at a whole range of minibeasts. They have observed their caterpillars turn into chrysalises and are eagerly awaiting the next stage of development. They have made minibeasts using cardboard fruit trays and also continued practising for Sports Day, running at great speeds and following instructions extremely well. You are going to be so impressed with them!
During the week commencing 1 July the Nursery children will be learning about the weather, the colour blue, the number 9 and the letter t. Any small toys incorporating any of these would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will continue learning about minibeasts and the letter g.
Friday 5 July will be the Nursery Department Sports Day, starting at 9.15am and ending approximately an hour later. We look forward to seeing you at the track side on the main school sports field, cheering the children on. We would like all children to take part even if Friday is not a regular session and for the children to wear suitable footwear and shorts, and please apply lots of sun cream on your child as the weather is forecast to be sunny.
I am very sorry to be writing this but after six years of being in the Nursery Department Mrs Samra, who is currently working in Transition but has also worked in the Nursery rooms at various times, has decided to leave us and help her husband in his business. She will be very much missed by both staff and children and we wish her lots of happiness and success in the future.
We are delighted to announce that Miss Bannister, who started her career at Claires Court in the Extended Day Care facility and then the Nursery Department before moving to our Junior Boys Division, is returning and will be supporting Miss Green in Transition. She is well known by all of us here and I am sure will be a great member of our team.
