Welcome to the Nursery Class page.....
We would like to say a big 'Welcome' to all of our new Nursery children and their families!
..........and welcome back to the children and families who are returning to the Nursery class after the summer holidays!
Mrs Lucas is the class teacher
Mrs Rowlands and Mrs Wright are teaching assistants in the morning class session.
Mrs McLoughlin and Mrs James are teaching assistants in the afternoon class session.
Miss Banks teaches the children on a Friday.
We often have additional students and volunteers working with us.
We are very fortunate to have Mr Murphy working with us every week......
He is working alongside the staff to deliver P.E and movement sessions with the children focusing on fundamental physical skills.
The Red and Blue groups will have P.E on a Monday morning.
The Red and Yellow groups will have P.E on a Thursday morning.
For their P.E day the children can wear tracksuits/joggers/leggings and trainers.
Our topic/theme this term is 'Magical Me!' and the children will be discussing and finding out all about themselves, their families, friends and 'favourite things'.....we also discuss our bodies, our senses and how to keep healthy and safe.
The Nursery newsletters will tell you about all the exciting activities and experiences that the children will be involved in.......keep a look out for these!
The first week back after half-term will be the Nursery 'ART WEEK' and we are going to be focusing on the work of the Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes who produces very colourful pieces based mainly around circles.
We are looking forward to this exciting, creative week and hope that all the families will join in with our collaborative art project!
We use the snack money to purchase baking items and equipment, snack foods, tissues and gardening resources. It is a voluntary contribution (£2.00 per month is suggested for part-time children and £4.00 for the full time children) but you can be assured that all of the snack money is used to benefit all of the children in the class.
Please can you make sure that your child has a change of clothes in their Nursery bag. It is inevitable that they will need the occasional change of clothing when they are involved with water, paint, glue, soil and mud! We use aprons and cover ups but changes are needed sometimes!!
Please can you also ensure that all clothing is clearly named.....particularly school sweatshirts and cardigans as these are taken off regularly by the children.
The Nursery library is available for you to borrow books as often as you wish......please ask a member of staff if you need any help with the library system.
We also have a range of games and puzzles for you to borrow....simply write your child's name on the appropriate numbered card in the games library box. Each game/puzzle has a number on the bag which corresponds to the numbered card.
