What a fantastic week we’ve had in our Nursery! We have loved meeting all of our new children and families and I have to say, they have been absolute superstars. This week has been spent getting to know each other, settling the children so they feel safe, comfortable and happy and getting used to our rules and routines. Lots of time has been spent outside because of the beautiful weather we are having at the moment – the children have particularly enjoyed the mud kitchen, water and sand activities, the diggers and mud, dressing up and role-play. During the next couple of weeks we will continue to get to know the children, talk about their ‘All About Me’ posters and find out about the children’s interests which will help us to plan future activities.The adults in Nursery will also be assessing the children to find out the children’s starting points and I will also be carrying out a speech and language asessment , called ‘Wellcomm’ which all Early Years settings are required to do, and of course we will be having lots of fun! Starting from this Tuesday, we are very lucky to have Miss Jade coming into school to do P.E with the children so don’t forget to have your children ready dressed and raring to go. Every week I will place a Teddy Bear money pot outside our Nursery door – this is for you to pop in a £1 donation which goes towards things such as cooking ingredients and compost for planting etc. We usually post photographs of the children on our Friday blog but we need to wait for everyone to fill in the data protection forms on the school website ,so we know whose photo we can put on, or not, so if you could fill these out as soon as possible, this would be greatly appreciated. Finally, we have six September birthdays in Nursery so A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Grace, Rabia, Layla and Rose A who had their birthdays in the first week of September, Lily who had her birthday yesterday and Isabelle who celebrates her birthday tomorrow. Have a good weekend everyone and try to stay dry!
