Claires Court Maidenhead

from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Wilding's Words Summer 8

The nursery classes have been investigating farm animals, creating some lovely free hand paintings of their favourites which you can enjoy seeing on the classroom displays. They have extended language by learning the names of animals, their young and their homes. The children have been very busy making cards which I am certain will be enjoyed on Sunday! Our caterpillars are busy building their cocoons so it should not be too long before we have butterflies.

Transition children have been investigating the environment to discover minibeasts by going on a bug hunt around the grounds. I found them making some lovely 3D models of spiders and ladybirds yesterday and playing in small world habitats which they had created for toy insects. They have also been busy making cards.

All the children have been on the running track and have started practising for our Sports Day on Friday 7 July. If you are away on holiday at that time please let your child’s class leader know as soon as possible so that running teams can be organised. Please send your children in wearing practical running shoes from now on as we endeavour to use the running track as often as possible.

During the week commencing 19 June the nursery children will be learning about minibeasts, the colour black, the number 8 and the letter i. Any small toys incorporating a minibeast or black would be ideal as their “Show and Tell” item this week e.g. a spider (8 legs), a bee (black stripes) or any insect. Transition children will continue learning about minibeasts and the letter a.


Please park on College Avenue when dropping off and picking up your children. By the Nursery gate there are 30 minute parking places on either side of the road and, other than 11.00 – 13.00 (residents parking), the rest of College Avenue is available. The onsite parking is meant for visitors and staff use only. Many thanks for your cooperation in this matter.


If sunshine is forecast please apply sun cream to your child before coming in and provide named sunhats. Jumpers are taken off regularly so if not appropriately named please do so. 

And finally…..

We wish all our fathers a wonderful day on Sunday.
