A very warm welcome to all the new children and parents who have started with us this week. We will be welcoming more children over the following week.
The children have been getting used to our new routines and have been settling in well. They are getting used to finding their way around nursery and accessing all the areas and the equipment and activities that are set out each day.
The older children who are familiar with nursery have been very sensible and helpful with the new children, showing them where things are and helping the teachers!
We have sent out the Tapestry links this week so please do check your emails and check the spam folders over the weekend. If you do not receive an email link please let us know next week and we will check we have entered your email address correctly. Tapestry is our online assessment journal for you to see your child’s daily activities and progress.
These newsletters are a good way for you to keep up to date with what your child has been doing in Nursery and with future dates and topic work. Please also look at our school website for Nursery updates too!

Welcome to our new children and families who have joined us this week. The children have been really sensible about entering nursery on their own. We know this has been hard for some parents, the children are still very small and it is always nicer if parents can come in and settle their child before leaving them. We would like to thank everyone for helping us make these changes run so smoothly.
If you have any questions that can wait please email the office, (putting for the attention of nursery.) However, if you have a concern or question that cannot wait, please do not hesitate to gain our attention at the door. One of us will come out and speak to you and pass on the info to the rest of the staff.
Clothing When dressing your child for nursery please remember that the children access paint, play dough, water and other messy activities during the session. In order to help your child become as independent as possible in nursery, please send them in clothes that make it as easy as possible for them. Elasticated trousers for example, are easier for them to pull up and down when using the toilets. Velcro shoes and looser socks will enable them to take off and put their own shoes in PE. We are fortunate enough to have a wooded area in our school grounds and we will be taking children weekly to this area for outdoor activities. Therefore, please could you ensure your child has a pair of named wellies in Nursery that stay here on the boot stand.
Children can bring in a change of clothes in their bag each day in case they get wet. (We do have spare clothes in nursery. If your child comes home in school clothes can you please wash them before returning them to us.) Finally, please remember, socks not tights on PE days! Thank you

The children are all settling in very well, they are getting used to our new routines, which involve lots of hand washing! They are getting used to finding their way round nursery and accessing all the areas and the equipment that is set out each day. We have been able to have a walk around the outside areas of the school to see our wooded area and they have been into the big hall to do PE. The older children who are familiar with nursery have been very sensible and helpful with the new children, showing them where things are and helping the teachers! We have also introduced Library sessions on a Tuesday, so the children have the experience of visiting our school library and looking at books, listening to a story. They then choose a book to take home. These books can be returned and changed every Tuesday.
Next week we are going to carry on looking at the story of the Three Bears and introduce the Three Little Pigs.
