Nursery Information

Welcome to Our Information Page
Here you will find information about the Nursery Class. Below are the names and photographs of our Foundation Unit teaching team. Although we have specific teaching responsibilities for our own classes, we all support the learning of all the children within the Foundation Unit. 
In Nursery, Ms Tong works full time and she has Wednesday afternoon non-teaching time for her planning and assessment time, out of the classroom. Mrs Lockyer and Mrs Richardson teach the class on these afternoons. Mrs Lockyer works from Monday to Thursday. On Friday Mrs Richardson supports Ms Tong to teach in Nursery.

Choking Hazard: Grapes and Tomatoes
Please remember to cut grapes and tomatoes in half for children's packed lunches. Children may choke on whole grapes or cherry tomatoes but they are much safer if they are cut in halves. 
Important Dates 
Tuesday October 17th 2.45 p.m.  Drop In
Please come to our Drop In session in the Nursery Classroom. Children will be singing some of the Nursery Rhymes and action songs they have been learning this half of the term. You will have an opportunity to look at your child's Learning Journey folder and talk to the teaching staff about your child. Children love to share their learning with their families so please come along and celebrate their wonderful start to the new school year!
Wednesday October 18th 8.45 a.m.  School Photographs
The school photographer will be in school to take photos of individual children and photos of children with their siblings, for parents to purchase. If you would like your child to have a photograph but they do not normally attend Nursery on Wednesday morning please come to the school office at 8.30 a.m. on Wednesday and we will arrange for your child to have their photograph taken. 
Nursery Parents' and Carers' Meeting  Thursday 28th September 2.45 p.m.
There will be a meeting for all parents and carers of Nursery children in the Nursery classroom at 2.45 p.m. on Thursday 28th September. If your child does not normally attend Nursery on that afternoon you are still welcome to attend the meeting and you can bring your child with you. Children who are in Nursery on Thursday afternoon will be having songs and stories with Reception and will not be part of the meeting. 
We will open the gate for visitors at 2.45 p.m. and you will be able to sign in once you arrive in the classroom. The meeting will help you to know what you can do to help your Nursery aged child to make really good progress in Nursery. Notes from the meeting will be available on this webpage and parents will be able to translate them using the translate facility on the website.
The meeting will finish at 3.20 p.m. and you will be asked to leave the classroom so that we can help the children to get ready to go home. 
Please ask Mrs Lockyer or Ms Tong if you would like any further information. 
How can I help my child develop their communication skills?
In school we recognise that it is vital for children to be able to understand spoken language and speak clearly about the things that interest them. You can support your child as they develop these skills and some ideas are included below.
Please ask us if you would like more information about supporting children's understanding and speaking in English.
Information about Healthy Eating
We have many ideas about Healthy Packed lunches on our Reception pages. If you are not sure what to include in a lunch box for your child please have a look at the delicious suggestions compiled by children in our school. 
Friday October 3rd 2017 Autumn Newsletter is here!
Below you will find a copy of our newsletter for the second half of the Autumn Term. Please let us know if you would like any further information.
