Welcome to Nursery

We have had a busy week  welcoming back our older children and introducing our new starters to Nursery. Over the next few weeks we will be focusing on settling all of the children in and supporting them to make new friends.

In Nursery we learn through play. We offer the children experiences, both adult led and child initiated, through a range of topics. This year our topics are

Autumn 1

  • Getting to know Nursery
  • All about Me!
  • Harvest/Autumn

Autumn 2

  • Nursery Rhymes
  • Diwali – The Festival of Light
  • Christmas

Spring 1

  • Our Favourite Stories
  • Special Books
  • Chinese New Year

Spring 2

  • At the Farm/Spring
  • Special People
  • Special Times

Summer 1

  • In Our Garden
  • Weddings

Summer 2

  • Pirates
  • Baptisms
  • Raksha Bandham – The Festival of Brotherhood & Love

To support your child during their time in Nursery there are lots of things you could help them with at home.

  • encouraging them to dress themselves independently e.g. putting on and taking off coats, shoes etc.
  • talking about the world around them e.g. changes in the weather, signs they see on the way to school etc.
  • counting every day actions and objects.
  • recognising and writing their own name.

Throughout the year we will keep you informed about your child’s learning, but if you have any questions please talk to a member of the Nursery team.

Welcome Back Year 1!

Dear Year 1 parents/carers,

We hope you all had a lovely summer!

We have had a very busy week so far in Year 1. The children have all settled in well and are enjoying their new classrooms.

Please find below some information about Year 1:

  • This year the children will explore a range of topics as part of geography and history including Explorers (Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus), Our Local Area and Grace Darling.
  • Our P.E. day this term is THURSDAY. Please ensure your child has their kit in school as soon as possible. Year 1 children MUST have suitable wear or they will not be able to take part. Thank you to those who have already brought kit into school.
  • We will aim to change reading books as frequently as possible. Please make sure your child brings their book bag into school EVERY DAY so that we can do so. The same applies for library books. Please encourage your child to read their books at home with you and remember to make a comment in their reading diary!
  • The children will receive spellings/homework as the year progresses but we will let you know more when they begin to do so.

All Year 1 children have to complete a phonics screening test in the summer term. This consists of children reading real and nonsense words, using their phonic knowledge, and is carried out by the child’s class teacher. This is something we work towards throughout the year so that the children are well prepared for it.

Please let us know if you have any questions or queries.

Many thanks,

Miss Jones, Mrs Storey and Mrs Christer.

Choir Update

Dear Parent/Carer

Apologies but there will be no choir rehearsal on Tuesday 12th September due to a staff meeting but I would like to rehearse on Wednesday 13th September just for that week. As you can appreciate we are getting close to our Charity concert for Daft as a Brush and rehearsal time is important.

I would be grateful if as many of the choir as possible can make the rehearsal on Wednesday but appreciate it impacts childcare arrangements.

Many Thanks

Mrs Storey
