Nursery: 3-4 Year Olds

Welcome to Term 4!

Welcome to our fourth term! The year is going very fast.  Our Topic is called: Where does our food come from?… From Field To Fork.

Continuing with our cooking, we will be using vegetables for experimental cooking and encourage fussy eaters to try the fresh vegetables that we use.  We will be planting some flowers and vegetables in our outdoor areas and creating a sensory garden to support our understanding of the world and to support our well being.  If you have any seeds or would like to support our planting please speak to our friendly staff who would welcome your help.

We have two trips planned for this term:  15th March Trip to Redland Park and 19th March Trip to the Wild place.  Please volunteers to be a helper for these outings to help keep the children’s experiences safe and fun.

Morning routine

Help your child find their name card and support them choosing their lunch on their Key worker board.

Help your child settle to an activity in their Key Worker area.  This morning activities time is called Talk Time.  It is a time for you to share any news or information with the Key Worker and chat to your child as they settle into their new day.  These activities will have been carefully planned to suit your child’s interests.

If you have any issues that you would like to discuss privately, please mention this to the Key Worker who will offer you a suitable time either at the end of the day or after Talk Time has finished.

Messages

Just a quick reminder to our families.

  • Please bring your children on time.
  • After helping the children to self register, please bring them to their Key Worker corners where you can join them to share in the learning activities.
  • The more regularly your child attends, the more we can help support their development.
  • Remember to log in to your child’s Interactive Learning Diary.  These are made with lots of love and attention.  Your child would be so proud to share their learning experiences with you at home. We welcome you to put on your own photographs and learning experiences too.  Thank you for all of you who do this regularly already.

Displays and Children’s Work 2018-19
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
