My name is Mrs Ross  the class teacher and  working alongside me  are Mrs Hopkins and Miss Corcoran.  Welcome to the Summer Term.

 Each nursery child is allocated a key worker who will be working closely with that child. Please come in and share your child's achievements as well as  finding out how they are progressing. 

 A special thank you to all the parents who attended our Stay and Play sessions in the Spring Term. We appreciate all your help and look forward to seeing you this term as we continue to work in close partnership to support our children.

 

 Our Home reading is continuing.Please spend some time to share a book with your child and  remember to fill in the reading folder with a brief comment on your child's response to the book.

 

Our IPC topic for this term is Treasure.  The nursery staff would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who supported us with our Entry Point - a pirate dressing up day on Thursday 19th April 2018.

Last term we had a live author in our school. His name?  Andrew Weale. He visited the nursery and read two of his books to the children. They listened and participated with great enthusiasm.

 We want to foster a love of books in our children so please read to them each night and support our reading scheme.

 

Our RE topic  for the first half of the Autumn term was Beginnings.The children learnt about themselves, their families and their new school within the context of the wider Parish and Church.

 

The IPC  topic was Family and Friends. During the course of the theme the children  learnt about the similarities and differences between each other.They  learnt a little about the family backgrounds of their classmates, but mainly they  learnt about being part of a new group of people and making new relationships.
