Welcome to Nursery
This is just a quick reminder to all mummies and daddies, please don't forget that your child will need:
their name in all clothes
The classroom door will open at 8:30 and all children will need to be dropped off at the door- I'm sorry but you won't be able to come in so give a big hug to each other before school! You can collect your child at 11:30 from the main school entrance (as we lock the green gate for safety) and check Tapestry in the evening for an update as to what they got up to at school!
Love from Mrs Gray
If you'd like your child to access their Purple Mash account and play games, complete challenges and do some cross-curricular activities, please contact Mrs Gray for the individual login (I've set you some challenges to do in the "to-do" section!) and have an explore on the section called "Mini Mash" which is designed for Early Years children.
The Nursery is open to all children from the term following their 3rd birthday. Everyone is entitled to 15 hours of free nursery time, which is 08.30 to 11.30 every morning. If you would like your child to stay longer, afternoon sessions are available for an additional cost. There are 30 hours funded places available, subject to eligibility. Please ask for more information if you are interested.
As an extra service children may stay on for lunch (at £2.25 per day) and be collected at the later time of 12.45pm.
Children are asked to wear uniform- this is a red jumper or cardigan (red school jumpers or sweatshirts can be bought from the school office).
Your child is important to us and we know it’s important for you to know your child is happy and safe, so come and visit us anytime and we will all be happy to answer any of your questions.
The Nursery and Reception team are working with the children on learning phonics using the Letters and Sounds system.
To help your child, you can follow the link below to reinforce their learning. Parents of children in Nursery should focus on the Phase 1 activities. http://www.letters-and-sounds.com
Please also have a look at the Jolly Phonics jingles (below, from YouTube) to help your child remember how to make the pure sound of each letter.
