Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Autumn 7
- Please check your email as I have sent the '2build a profile' observations of your child for this half term.
- Please inform us if your child will be away at the time of our Nursery Department Christmas production which will take place on Tuesday 10 December at 9.00am with the dress rehearsal happening the day before. We ask that all children attend both mornings even if it is not a booked session. There will be no charge for this if it is not a regular session. I will be sending out your seat requests form with costume requests at the beginning of the next half term.
- We wish you all a very happy half term fortnight and will take this opportunity to let you know the Thames Valley Police Halloween code:
- Please only call at houses you know! Don’t knock on doors where there is a 'No trick or treat' sign.
- Be visible – your children may be dressed as dark beings but they need to be seen by other road users.
- Take a torch with you.
- Stay in areas lit well by street lights. Be careful not to frighten vulnerable people, especially the elderly.
- Don’t let your children talk to strangers on the street.
- Don’t let your children go into any houses.
- No treat means no trick – don’t let a good night go bad. Please respect other people’s wishes!

I have to say that they are remembering the different songs they have been learning this half term and it is a joy to hear them singing spontaneously during their play. Transition children have also been in Africa this week and have painted some amazing sunset pictures onto which they have printed animal silhouettes. They have sorted elephant toys by size and cut out animal pictures. A busy time has been had by all in a wonderful continent.
After half term

Any small toy incorporating these would be ideal as their 'show and tell' item. Transition children will be looking at South America; where it is and what it is like. Their letter of the week will be o.
