We hope and your children have enjoyed the return back to school and are looking forward to the Easter break! The children have worked very hard and we cannot believe that they only have one term left in Nursery!
Our focus topic for the first part of the summer term is ‘Space”. At the bottom of this letter you will find an overview outlining what we will cover each week. This half term we will be continuing Phase 2 of the “Letters and Sounds” programme which introduces children to the sounds e, u, r,l, h and b. We will also be continuing with our number of the week, looking at numbers 11-16. Please continue to support your child with this at home.
Books and Book bags
Please ensure that your child has a book bag that they bring in to school every day. This can be used to take books home from our ”Book Borrowing Library”. Please remember to sign out books borrowed from the library in the cloakroom and to cross it out when the book is returned.
Uniform and spare clothes
Please ensure all items of clothing are clearly named. Every child will also need a bag of weather appropriate spare clothes to hang on their peg. If your child has had a toilet accident we will change your child into their spare clothes and put the wet clothes in a plastic bag on your child’s peg. If your child has had to borrow Nursery spare clothing, please wash them and return the clothes to us as soon as possible. If you do have any spare clothing at home that you would like to donate to Nursery we would really appreciate it. Please also note we are a uniform school and Nursery children need to wear uniform outlined on the Belleville website.
Coats and bags
Please continue to encourage your child to remove their own water bottle and place it in the tray before entering the school. We are continuing to encourage the children to become more independent and take care of their belongings, in preparation for Reception.
Toys from home
Please continue to encourage your child to leave their toys at home. Nursery cannot be responsible for toys which go missing.
If you are concerned about anything, please do not hesitate to come and have a chat with either Miss Cliff or Mrs Trotter.
