Spring 1 - Nursery Newsletter


A big, warm welcome to all the new children who have joined us this term! We hope your time with us will be a happy one. Just to remind you we have four keyworker groups in the nursery; Dolphins, Turtles, Foxes and Parrots. Please feel free to speak to your child’s keyworker at the beginning or end of the session.

Many thanks to everyone for signing their child in at the beginning of each session. As you know we ask you to indicate who will pick your child up at the end of the session. If anything changes during that session and the designated person is no longer able to collect your child could you please telephone the office to let us know the name of the new adult who will pick your child up.


One of our maths topics is measurement and we are using the ‘DIY’ shop to encourage the children to think about height, length, weight etc.

If you have any books or resources that you think might be helpful please do send them in to school.

This term we are also looking at the Traditional Tale of ‘Goldilocks and the three Bears.’ We are linking this to the UNICEF convention on ‘Rights of the Child’ which is a current whole school focus.


We are still encouraging our children to be as independent as possible by fastening their coats and being responsible for their own possessions. We would be grateful if you would ensure that all hats, scarves and gloves are clearly named. Can I kindly ask parents to leave toys at home as we are worried that they could get lost or damaged?

During the cold weather we will continue to play outside but for a shorter period of time so please do send your child’s wellies in with them and a suitable coat. It would be very helpful if your child could attend nursery with suitable shoes that do not have laces.


This term Stay and Play will be on Thursday 9th February 2017. It is a great opportunity for parents to speak with staff about their children. We can discuss progress and any concerns you may have.

Morning children 9 – 10 a.m.

Afternoon children 12.30 – 1.30.p.m

All day children are welcome to choose which session best suits them.
