Claires Court Maidenhead

from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding's Words Summer 2

In the 3 nursery rooms the children have been looking at life cycles of frogs and have created some lovely frog masks, puppets and life cycle charts, and hopped around the rooms pretending to be these jumpy creatures. The pond is alive with water life and the children are fascinated by all the movement and development of the tadpoles, newts, water boatmen and dragonfly nymphs, to name but a few.

Transition children have been sowing cress seeds in the shape of their first initial, learning about the different parts of a plant and have had enormous fun in their florist shop area, selling and buying flowers, using a till and working out the costs. They have been practising their scissor use and size ordering skills by cutting out pictures of flowers and placing them from smallest to largest.

The week commencing Tuesday 2nd May the nursery children will be learning about the life cycle of a chick, the colour yellow, the number 2 and the letter b. Any small toys incorporating an egg or yellow would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. We are all very excited about “Hatch Watch” taking place in the Nursery hall with the 10 live eggs arriving on Tuesday.

Transition children will continue learning about plants and growing and the letter l.


Tuesday morning will be class photo day so if this is not one of your usual attendance days and you would like your child to be included in the picture please bring in at the normal time and collect by noon.

If your child is leaving Claires Court Nursery at the end of this term please ensure that you put notice in writing as soon as possible but at the latest by half term. Children moving into Claires Court reception classes do not need to do this.

Please remember to put ice packs into the lunch box as we do not store the boxes in refrigerators.

Although the weather is getting warmer please still send in a coat with your child as the temperature does fluctuate and we do go outside every day.

If your child does ballet on Monday afternoons please send in named pink (girls tend to like these) or black (boys tend to wear this colour) leather ballet shoes.


Please give any Sainsbury’s “Active Kids Vouchers” you have to your child’s class leader as we hope to have enough to get some more outdoors play equipment. Many thanks.
