Mrs Wilding's Words Summer 5
Sunflower seeds have started to grow, lettuce is appearing and cress has gone home to be enjoyed on salads or in sandwiches. The strawberry patch looks as though it will be very productive so let’s hope slugs and little fingers do not get to them too soon! The children have not needed their watering cans outside this week but had great fun listening to the sound of rain under their umbrellas!
The weather this week has been so varied again that it has been a great topic for the Transition children. The children have talked about the causes of thunderstorms and how to protect themselves during one, have made sun catchers and painted weather pictures.
During the week commencing 15th May the nursery classes will be learning about woodland and parkland, the colour white, the number 5 and the letter e. Any small toys incorporating topic related objects and white would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week. Transition children will also be learning about woodland and parkland and the letters u,y .
Please return your sessions booking sheets for the autumn term as soon as possible and by Tuesday 23rd May at the latest as I will be allocating space for new children after this date.
If sunshine is forecast please apply sun cream to your child before arriving and provide named sunhats. We will reapply sun creams if permission slips have been signed and a named cream provided.
Please return your orders for the class photos as soon as possible.
Please bolt the gate to the nursery garden when you enter and leave and close the hall door behind you. You may be able to trust your own child not to go out but think of others too. We almost had a disaster last week when the local cat walked into the hall and was showing great interest in our newly hatched chicks!
