Mrs Wilding's Words Autumn Term Week 12

Monday 12th December - The Nursery Christmas entertainment morning to which all Nursery children are invited to attend even if they do not usually come on a Monday. The children may wear party clothes for the occasion. The PTA is very kindly funding a children’s entertainer called Jay.

Wednesday 14th December at 11.15 a.m. we have our Christmas carols and songs to which the parents are invited. If your child does not usually come on Wednesdays please join us at 11.15 a.m. in the Chapel (pass the Head’s office and dining room in the main school entrance, through the door, up the stairs and the Chapel is immediately in front of you).

Please check your email on Tuesday as I will be sending the “2Build a profile” observations we have carried out this half term. It would be really helpful if you could acknowledge receipt via 2Build.

This Week
It was such a delight for us to see so many parents, grandparents and friends attending our Christmas production on Tuesday morning – evidence of a really supportive parent body. We have discussed and learnt about traditional rhymes and stories this term and there is no doubt that the children have helped us to enjoy the build up to Christmas with the related songs. We are enormously proud of every single one. They proved that they could learn 14 songs, quite a repertoire for predominantly 3 year olds, have the confidence to stand on a large stage in front of an almost 200 strong audience, sit quietly at appropriate moments and show a sense of calm. The costumes you provided looked really colourful, so thank you. I am looking forward to seeing it again in January when the DVD copy I have ordered arrives.

The children’s faces said it all this morning when we went outside to find Father Christmas arriving in an ice cream van! He very kindly gave each nursery child a mallow snow flake or a chocolate Santa to be enjoyed at home. Thank you so very much Father Christmas x

A big thank you goes to those who contributed to our Christmas Jumper Day today for “Save the Children”. The Nursery raised £40.00 for this worthy cause at last count.

The Transition children really enjoyed Christmas lunch so a very big thank you goes from us all to the Kitchen staff for the amazing lunch and all the wonderful food that they cook throughout the year.

This week we have welcomed lots of new children who will be joining The Nursery in January and they are delightful. I feel certain that your children will very quickly be talking about their new friends.
