Mrs Wilding's Words Lent 1
We wish everybody a very happy and healthy 2017 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 getting to know the staff, their new friends and the environment. The new children in Transition are having a wonderful time too and have now settled into the different routines after transferring from their nursery classes.
Our topic this half term is based on “Space”. It would be lovely if you could support the children’s learning by talking about this at home.
The week commencing 9th January the nursery children will be learning about “life in space”, the colour orange, the number 1 and the letter o. Any small orange item or astronaut / alien related toy would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will be learning about “Earth” and the letter i.
The Wednesday afternoon activity this term is cold cookery and we are conscious of the legislation regarding allergens. We are aware of children’s allergies listed on their medical forms which you will have completed at the time your children joined us but will keep packaging and a list of ingredients used for your information if you require it. We will be making fresh fruit salads on Wednesday 11th January using apples, grapes, satsumas, bananas and orange juice.
