We hope you all enjoyed your Easter break. The children have been telling us about some of the exciting things they have been doing over the last two weeks. We are pleased to say they have settled very quickly back into our nursery routines.
This week we have been doing lots of activities around the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Lots of children can retell the story in their own words so you might want to ask them to tell you the story at the weekend! Next week we are going to continue the growing theme and plant some wild flowers, beans and tomatoes outside. Our Power of Reading book for the next two weeks is The Enormous turnip. Lots of the children now have a better understanding of the concepts ‘more’ and ‘less’ in relation to numbers and problem solving. So we are going to reinforce and extend this area over the next few weeks.
It is now school policy to try and go paperless. Therefore, this newsletter, and all other school newsletters will be emailed directly to you. I will put a copy of the newsletter on our noticeboard by the gate each week. However, if you would like a paper copy, please do ask us.

All the staff are very proud of how well your children did in the singing festival. It can be quite overwhelming for some nursery children to go into the hall and perform in front of so many people. So even if they didn’t sing this time, they still did a really great job!
We hope you enjoyed all that enthusiastic singing and the poem which they learnt so well. The lovely poem they recited was written for them by Carol, who works in Nursery for part of the afternoon. I have put the words of their poem on the back of this newsletter.
If your child is going up to a reception class in September you will be taking home their first school report today. If you have any questions about the reports please do come and talk to Judith or Virginia when we return after Easter.
In the last term of the year we hope to do lots of exciting outdoor activities. Please be aware that your child will need sun screen as the weather improves. Please do try to use a screen that will last all day, to give the children the best protection possible.
