from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding's Weekly Words Lent 3

Nursery children have been busy learning about themselves this week and have created some lovely self-portraits using mirrors, paint and craft materials which I am sure you will enjoy seeing. They made playdough using a variety of skin toned paints and compared their own hand colour with these before using the dough to make people. They have also compared their heights using measuring techniques.

Transition children have been learning about their families; many thanks for sending in photographs which have been a great topic of discussion and have helped the pupils create pictures of their own family trees. The vast majority of the class have siblings and the children have been happily talking about their brothers and sisters and their position in the family. 

The week commencing Monday 27 January the Nursery children will be learning about their families, the colour gold, the number 3 and the letter e. Any small toys incorporating these would be ideal as their 'show and tell' item this week. Transition children will be learning about friends and the letter m. We are all looking forward to celebrating Chinese New Year and will be learning about the celebration with some related activities.


Towards the end of the week I will be sending home sessions sheets for your summer term requirements. The staff may have put this in your child’s bag so please do check there for the sheet and return this by Wednesday 12 February at the latest.

Wednesday afternoon's cold cookery activity will be making triangular sandwiches with wholemeal bread, cream cheese and marmite. As always we will have a list of ingredients if you wish to check for any allergens.

Please name all jumpers, footwear and outside clothing and check that names are still visible. We go outside everyday meaning that clothes are on and off and can easily get mixed up. Some parents ask us about going out when it is cold and our response is if a child has the appropriate clothing there is no problem whilst the cold also has the added bonus of helping to halt the spread of germs.

Please avoid using your phones when coming in to or going out of the Nursery garden. If you need to make or answer a call then please do so outside the school grounds.
