Welcome to Nursery
A New Half Term!
Week beginning Monday 22nd February
Hello everyone, I hope you are all safe and well and you enjoyed your half term break. Did you manage to get out to the local parks for some exercise and walks? We had some lovely weather too and Spring is not far away.
The majority of our nursery children are attending school and we are looking forward to welcoming back the couple of children who are still at home from the 8th March. Also I will be contacting our new children who are due to start nursery with some information and a start date. It will be great to have a busy nursery again.
Under government guidelines Nursery is open for all children and we have a small number of regular attendees. If you would like your child to return to Nursery please let me know. We also have a speech and language therapist coming into nursery on a Tuesday to provide additional support for all nursery children in developing and extending their language and comprehension skills. If your child is not attending nursery daily but you would like them to participate in the sessions they can just attend on a Tuesday. Let me know if this is something that you are interested in.
Our school have multiple online learning platforms that the children can access although the majority of them may not relevant for Early Years children. During this current lock down I will provide activities and challenges for the children to complete at home and I will share these on this class page. The most important thing that parents can be doing with children is talking to them and listening. At the end of this page there is a list of examples of everyday activities parents and children can do at home.
If you would like extra activities to try at home click on this link https://www.eyfshome.com and put in your email address on the home page they will send you home learning activities each week.
If you have any questions or queries about nursery please feel free to contact me at school.

Nursery times and sessions
We provide 15 hours a week of education for 3 and 4 year old children. We operate these hours over 5 days a week.
Morning session 8.45am - 11.30am
Afternoon session 12.15pm - 3.15pm
If you require a 8.30am start for morning nursery please speak to Miss McArdle.
Miss McArdle is the Nursery teacher and the Early Years Foundation Stage Manager. Miss Stasik is the Nursery Nurse. We also work closely with the Reception class staff.
Nursery snack money is £1 per week. This helps to provide a daily snack and goes towards buying ingredients when we do cookery activities. The type of snacks we have are cereal, toast, yogurts, cheese and crackers for example. Children can have milk or water to drink.
We take part in a short PE session with a specialist games coach on a Thursday. Children should keep a pair of black pumps in nursery to wear for our PE lesson.
Weekly newsletters are sent home at the end of the week to let parents know what we have been learning about.
