Hello and welcome to Nursery
Hello Parents and Carers,
My name is Miss Foster and I am the Nursery Teacher. Denise also teaches in Nursery. We have a lot of fun and do lots of learning in Nursery. We learn through play and music and we also listen to lots of stories! Every week we learn a new sound and we also have a concept word each week which Concept Cat helps us to learn. In Maths we are learning to count to 10 and understand the value of each number and what it looks like. We are also learning the names of different shapes.
On Tuesday we go to the hall for PE and we are getting better at taking off and putting on our shoes and socks. We are also getting really good at taking off and putting on our own coats and going to the toilet when we need to go! A lot of Nursery is about becoming a little more independent
This term we will not be doing book bags as we are trying not to have too many things going back and forth from home and school. Please find time to read with your child every day as reading is so important and reading and enjoyment of stories and reading is one of the key factors in helping your child to be successful in the future. Have fun with it! Try doing different voices and volumes, ask questions about what is happening and enjoy your reading experience together. Some libraries are beginning to open so if you are tired of the same books at home this could be a good option. Also Reading Buddy logins will be sent home soon for children to take part in the online reading program the school has paid for.
If Nursery children could bring one bag to school with a change (or two) of spare clothes in case of any accidents, this would be greatly appreciated. This bag will stay in Nursery on your child's peg so that we have quick and easy access to it, and if necessary, any clothes that need a wash will be returned to you in a plastic bag. please send your child to school with a labelled water bottle (this will go home each day to be refreshed) and remember to label any items of clothing - especially red jumpers! If you have any concerns at any tie or wish to discuss anything, please ring Sue in the office to make a phone appointment.
We will continue to use the front entrance school gate (leading out to Brougham Road) as the Nursery pick up and drop off point. Thank you for your cooperation and patience while we are doing our best to start the new school year off as smoothly as possible. We are being very diligent with handwashing throughout the day and with hygiene reminders (catch it, bin it, wash it!) as well as staying in our Early Years bubble. If your child shows any symptoms, please see the school website for the correct procedure. It is so nice to see the children happily playing together again and there are a lot of smiles around
We are looking forward to a fantastic year in Nursery and will do all we can for your child to have a rewarding and inspirational first year of education.
Miss Foster and Denise
