Welcome back to the final few weeks of the summer term! The time this
year has simply flown by! I can hardly believe that our children will
be joining Reception in September.
This final half-term is going to be a very busy half term .We will
hopefully be having our visit to the Country-side Centre and our little
‘concert’ of songs and dances and the children will be having a few
tantalizing visits to their new Reception class.
The theme for this half term is ‘Summer’. In the weeks up until the end
of term we will be finding out about summer gardens, ‘mini-beasts’ and
holidays. If you have anything which may be of interest for our topic
(except perhaps garden spiders!!!) we will be pleased to display them
in the Nursery. If you have any cuttings from your gardens or seeds
that we can plant out in the outdoor area with the children that would
Remember that when it is sunny weather, please could you send your
child with a hat for wearing outside and ensure they have sun-cream on
before coming to Nursery.
In order to encourage the children to share as many books as possible
with their parents and get them prepared for learning to read, we are
introducing a wall chart with named ‘book worms’ that will progress up
the chart if a child borrows at least one book per week from the
Nursery library. On Fridays a sticker will be given to each child who
borrows at least one book to read at home. It would be useful if you
could provide your child with a book bag to transport their book to and
from the Nursery setting. Your child would also have their book bag
ready for the start of their Reception year! It is essential that books
are well cared for and returned promptly in order to maintain an
adequate stock for children to choose from. If parents have any good
quality story books that they would like to donate to the Nursery
class, we would be very grateful.
