This week, we enjoyed playing in the garden. We used boxes to make big houses to play (and hide) in and we used smaller boxes to make dolls houses. We used paints, pens and crayons to decorate them.

On Monday the children went to the reception classes and met their new teachers. They also explored their new classrooms.

On Tuesday the Daisy and Buttercup children had Sports Day. The children ran in races, did the long jump and threw the vortex. They all did a brilliant job!

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons  the children had their stay and play sessions in the Reception classes. They had lots of fun!

Next week – It is the last week of term.


We will be talking about all of the things that the children have enjoyed doing at Nursery through the year. We will be reading the children’s favourite stories from Nursery and singing their favourite songs.

We will also be going to visit Reception once more before the holiday.

At home, you could talk about things that the children have enjoyed doing this year. What was their favourite thing to do at Nursery?

Talk about their stay and play session in Reception. What was the classroom like? What new toys did they see? What is their new teacher’s name?


***********************   REMINDERS & NOTICES   ************************

We have recently had lots of children bringing in toys from home. Please encourage your child to leave their toys at home as they get very upset when other children play with their toys, we have lots of toys to play with in the Nursery.

GATES: When leaving the Nursery please make sure that you close all of the gates behind you. Thank you.

ATTENDANCE: It is important that your child attends school everyday.
GUM: We have had a number of children come to school eating chewing gum this week. Please remove this before your child comes into school as it is a choking hazard and not appropriate for nursery.
UNIFORM: Please remember to name all of your child’s uniform and bring a bag with spare clothes.
SNACKS: Please do not put any snacks in this bag as the children have fruit provided at snack time.
NUTS: Please make sure that your child does not bring nuts to school. This is very important as we have children in our classes that are allergic to nuts.
