Some of the fun expected this term…

  • We will be making the most of our final term in Bluebell class for this academic year.
  • We will be performing in our very own play 'Billy No Buzz' and we will be Ladybirds.
  • We have been exploring different changes in our environment, which helps us understand the world around us.
  • From this, we are celebrating changes and enjoying the warmer weather.
  • In Bluebell class- we are being kind, working together, and making lots of new friends.
  • Thinking about our own feelings and the feelings of others.
  • Supporting the children’s developing characteristics of effective learning e.g. confidence, self-confidence, persistence, imagination, problem solving, working together and concentrating.
  • Exploring a range of stories.
  • We are improving our fine motor skills through creative play.
  • Continue to use our imaginations during play and exciting carpet times.
  • We are beginning to learn phonics; we have been thinking about sounds and where they come from. 
  • Experimenting and creating in our junk modelling area.
  • Exploring all our surroundings both indoors and outdoors, this continues to improve our moving and handling skills.

 

Also this term we will be holding 'Celebration week'. This is an oppurtunity to come in and look at how your children learn in nursery, you may also take the time to explore your children's learning journeys, and to speak with their class teacher. This will begin on Monday 19th June and you may drop in at any time during the school day. If for any reason you cannot attend please feel free to speak to the class teacher as we will be happy to arrange another time to suit you.

 

Remember to start bringing in any costumes for the play, we will be performing on Wednesday 5th July and we will be Ladybirds. Be as creative as you wish.

 

 

 

Wishing Well Appeals

Please keep an eye on our wishing well appeal boards. Your donations of items on the board are much appreciated and are used directly for activities with the children (play-dough, cooking etc). They really do help to enhance your children’s experiences at school.   We would be especially grateful for donations of tissues during these winter months!

Coffee Mornings

Don’t forget we hold a coffee morning each Friday from 9.00 – 10.30. These are held in Daisy Class and are supported by staff from the Children’s Centre.  As always there will be singing and later in the term we will be adding some phonics sessions.  There will be lots of ideas for games to play at home, as an introduction to teaching your child to read.   Please remember that all parents are welcome! 

Things to bring to school

  • Book bag containing reading folder and free choice book from the class book box. Please don’t put other belongings in book bags as it prevents the bags from fitting in the storage box and also makes it harder for your child to find their gloves/spare clothes etc. (Reception children only.)
  • Completed phonics work in the phonics folder every Monday morning . (Reception children only.)
  • A small bag to hang on your child’s coat peg (named polythene bag is fine), containing named gloves, hat and spare clothes etc. It is much easier for your child to find their belongings independently if they are on their peg, rather than in the book bag box with 29 other identical bags.
  • A named warm coat (ideally waterproof/water resistant) as we use the outdoor area in all weathers.
  • A named jumper.
  • A named pair of wellies. We have some spare pairs in school so don’t worry if you don’t have any.

 

 

Volunteering

If you have any spare time and you would like to volunteer please come and see your child’s keyworker.  We are always very grateful for your support.

 

Donations

If you have any puzzles, games or old toys that are in good condition, we would be happy to give them a new home!  We are particularly in need of battery operated 'technology' toys with buttons to press (e.g. VTech/remote controlled cars).  Large pieces of material that can be used for our roleplay areas would also be welcomed!

 

Please come and talk to one of us if you have any questions or concerns.  After school is usually the best time to catch us for a chat as the mornings are often very busy.
