Mrs Wilding's Words Autumn Term Week 9

Preparing your child for primary school is an exciting, but busy, time for parents. An important part of your plans should be checking that your child is up-to-date with their immunisations. Please visit for more information.

As in previous years we will be helping those less fortunate in our local community by providing the Maidenhead branch of the Salvation Army with Christmas hampers which the Year 10 girls will make up. The Nursery Department have been asked to provide biscuits which can be left in boxes in Transition or the Nursery Hall between 21st November and 5th December. Many thanks in advance for your support.

With Christmas rapidly approaching any cardboard tubes from rolls of wrapping paper will be gratefully received as during the year we do a range of craft activities for which these are ideal.

This week and next
I am sure that the children have told you about going over to the big hall where they have discovered the stage. They are showing great confidence standing and singing their “Once upon a time” songs, albeit quietly. Fingers crossed that they use their “outside voices” on the stage on 6th December!

The nursery rooms have been having fun acting out the “Red Riding Hood” story, have learnt the related song and have been on autumn walks collecting leaves to make leaf and stick person pictures and wreaths.

The week commencing 21st November the 3 nursery classes will discuss and listen to stories and information about “The Little Mermaid” and do a range of related crafts. Their number is 9, the colour is blue and the letter is m.

Transition children have looked at the story of “Snow White”, have discussed the different versions and why the dwarfs have their names. The children thought of different names for these characters and considered which dwarf they resembled by looking at their own and their friends faces. Apples were cut in half and mirrors used to consider symmetry and these were then used for printing.

Their letter of the week, 21st November, is v and they will be exploring the topic related to “The Gingerbread Man”.

Reminders and Advance Notice
Please return your seating requests and your child’s costume for the Nursery Christmas Production as soon as possible.

Friday 9th December is our Christmas jumper day and your child may come in wearing something festive. All we ask is for them to bring a £1.00 donation which will go to “Save the Children”, a very worthy charity.

Please check your child’s burgundy jumpers as Ian Kim’s one is missing but named. Many thanks.
