A Special Visitor!
We were all very surprised this week by the arrival of a visitor from outer space. There was a knock on the window and a friendly alien appeared - his spacecraft had crash landed in the nursery garden! The children were excited to see the smoke and lights and had some great ideas about how we could help mend the spaceship. The alien was so friendly that we invited him in for a special snack of tea and biscuits.
Welcome back to Nursery!
We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and we wish you a Happy New Year.
We really enjoyed meeting our new families on their home visits and are all looking forward to welcoming the new children into nursery over the next two weeks. The children are excited about meeting some new friends and helping them to settle in.

Parent Reading Sessions
Every Thursday, at the start of the session, we would like to invite you to change your child's book and enjoy reading with them for 15 minutes. We have a wonderful selection of books for you to choose from and with your support we hope to foster a love of books in our children from an early age.
Learning Journal Support
The next Learning Journal session with Mr Baker will be in January 2018. If you have not been able to access your child's journal at home please join us at the start of the session to see how your child is progressing at nursery. Mr Baker will have iPads available for you to access your child's learning journal and he can also support you in uploading your own photos from home.
Thank you to all our parents who completed the transition questionnaire. You can view the results in the document below. We were very pleased with the feedback about our induction process and have taken on board your comments. As a result we will be having a parent reading session every Thursday when we change books (see News section).
CHRISTMAS IN NURSERY
The children have been very busy outside in our role play post office - wrapping presents, writing labels, adding stamps and delivering parcels. We also decorated the tree and had lots of fun in the snow! The children kept warm running around and pulling each other on the sleigh, staying nice and dry in our snowsuits.
We have been thinking about Autumn and looking at the changes in the world around us. The children have enjoyed taking part in Autumn walks around the school and have been great Leaf Detectives!
In our nursery we have a beautiful selection of books. We will encourage the children to change their books every Monday and Thursday. Please take the opportunity to spend special times sharing a book with your child.
Embracing the Outdoors
The outdoor environment is a rich and natural space for learning. We spend lots of time outside in our nursery garden and would ask that children are dressed for outdoor activities as we go outside whatever the weather! Please remember to name shoes, coats, wellies etc.
We will be learning the RWI sounds each week and revisiting sounds previously learned. We will also focus on a number and colour each week.
