Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Lent 1
We wish everybody a very happy and healthy 2020 from all of us in the Nursery Department.
It has been a lovely start to the year with children coming in with smiling faces and full of chatter about their holidays and new toys. We have welcomed lots of new children into the Nursery rooms and they are settling well; getting to know the staff, their new friends and the environment. The children who have moved up into Transition are having a wonderful time too and are now settling into the different routines after transferring from their Nursery classes.
Our topic this term is based on 'my world'. It would be lovely if you could support the children’s learning by talking about this at home.
The week commencing 13 January the Nursery children will be learning about the colour red, the number 1 and generally settling in. Any small red item or toy would be ideal as their 'show and tell' item this week. Transition children will be learning about the same topic and will be talking about 'me' and the letter r.
The Wednesday afternoon activity this term is cold cookery and we are conscious of the legislation regarding allergens. We are aware of the children’s allergies listed on their medical forms, which you will have completed at the time your child joined us, but will keep packaging and a list of ingredients used for your information should you require it. On Wednesday 15 January we will be making fruit salads with the children using a variety of fruits and developing our knowledge of these and cutting skills.
The zebra crossing and pedestrian entrance to school from College Road has been reinstated. I am sure that the majority of Nursery parents use the specific Nursery gate but if driving on to the site could we ask all drivers to please be mindful of the crossing when entering and ensure they take the normal due care and attention when approaching a zebra crossing.
Please remember that we are a nut and kiwi free environment and grapes/small circular shaped foods should be cut into four to reduce the risk of choking.
With the cold weather please send your child in wearing suitable clothing as we will be playing outside most days. Mittens are better than gloves unless your child is able to put them on without adult assistance and all clothing needs to be named.
