Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you all had a restful holiday. This half-term should show an improvement in the weather, but children will still need their wellies and a warm coat for outdoor play. Thank you for providing your children with wellingtons and plimsolls, it has made their lives at Nursery much more comfortable and has increased their independence.

A big thank you to Mr. Blight who came into the Nursery to talk about his role as a fire-fighter. The children really enjoyed his visit. Many thanks to Mrs.Rowling who regularly comes in to Nursery to work with the children.

It is very important that emergency contact numbers are kept up-to-date. If your telephone numbers/contacts change please inform staff immediately. In the case of an emergency it is essential that we are able to get in touch with parents/guardians promptly.

This term our theme is based on Nursery Rhymes and Traditional Stories. We will also be learning about the importance of Easter in the Christian calendar and traditions relating to the festival of Easter. To encourage children’s writing skills ‘Lucky Ducky’ will be spending a day with each child. Please make sure that ‘Lucky Ducky’ and the blue writing journal are returned to Nursery the following morning so that each child gets a turn.

I will be sending name cards home this half-term for your child to practise writing his/her name. Correct letter formation is important if the children are not to get into bad habits, so they will need your support and guidance. Please do not attempt to do this with your child if they are tired or not interested. It is more important for the children to learn to write their names correctly over a long period of time rather than being able to write their names quickly but forming the letter shapes inaccurately.
