Mrs Wilding’s Words Autumn 6


  • I hope to see many of you tomorrow evening at our Annual Fireworks held at our Junior Boys site which is usually enormous fun. The weather forecast at the moment looks slightly damp so fingers crossed it is dry for the event. As we always say in Nursery there is no such thing as bad weather just inappropriate clothing! You can pay on the gate if you have not booked tickets but this will not guarantee food.
  • Please return your session requests for January by Wednesday at the latest as I will be allocating the new children their classes that afternoon.
  • Towards the end of next week I will be sending this half term’s observations on “2build a profile” so please check your emails. 
  • Please note that the Breakfast Club is available from 7.30am - 8.30am but the service of food stops at 8.10am. If your child arrives after 8.10 am food will not be served.
  • Please ensure that you supervise your children as soon as they have been handed over by the Nursery staff as we are aware that some are running off and sometimes parents forget to bolt the gate!

In the three Nursery classes they have learnt lots about India this week and have dressed up in saris, danced with bells, eaten some Indian food and learnt about the animals that live in this part of the world.

They also practised their pencil and scissor control by colouring pictures of fruit which they then cut out and stuck onto a basket picture. They have made African necklaces using paper plates and practised carrying a basket of fruit on their heads.

Next Week.   

The week commencing 14 October the Nursery children will learn about Africa, the number 6, the colour black and the letter y. Transition children will focus on African animals and the letter c.
