Phonics: After half term we will be covering two sounds a week. On Mondays and Tuesdays we will learn the first letter of the week. On Thursdays and Fridays we will cover the second letter of the week. Please only send in items for the sound basket on these days. On Wednesdays we will be consolidating our sound work through additional activities.


Library: please send in your child’s book bag on a Wednesday only so that we can change their library book - we cannot give out a new library book unless the previous one is returned. The school charges £3 for any lost library books.



Things you can do at home to support your child:

· Help your child practise recognising and writing the letters in their name.

· Mark making and practise letter formation. This could be by drawing the letter in the air, in sand, painting or using a pencil.

· Take your children to the library.

· Share books, discuss the story, characters and talk about their feelings.

· Help your child to count how many times the sound of the week appears on a page.

· Find objects at home that begin with the sound of the week.

· Informally point out numerals around them i.e. on clocks, calculators, remote controls, buses, phones etc.

· Practise number formation in the air, in sand, painting or using a pencil.

· Count steps, coins, family members and places at the dinner table.

· Find shapes in the environment, e.g. on road signs or houses.


Please note: just a reminder that the morning session starts at 8.30am (please arrive no later than 8.50am) and finishes at 11.30am. The afternoon session starts at 12.30pm and finishes at 3.30pm (you can pick up from 3.15pm). Please ensure that your child is on time for Nursery so that they do not miss important teaching time.


Uniform: please ensure that all of your child’s clothing is labelled - including shoes, coats, gloves, hats, scarves, lunchboxes, and bags, as unfortunately items do go missing. Please keep your child’s spare clothes bag on their peg during term time.


Water bottles: Nursery provides drinking water and milk for children throughout the sessions. Only those staying for lunch need to send in a named water bottle.


Lunches: If your child is staying for lunch please note that we are a healthy school. Please DO NOT send in fizzy drinks, chocolate bars, sweets or whole nuts. For example, please send in:

· savoury option such as a sandwich or filled wrap

· fresh or dried fruit and/or vegetable

· a bottle of water

· savoury biscuits, cheese pieces or yoghurt.

Please note that we do not have facilities to heat up food or keep it cool. Thank you.


Spare clothes: Please make sure that your child has a PE bag of spare clothes (including underwear and plimsolls/shoes) at Nursery. If you have been loaned any clothes belonging to Nursery please wash and return them. Thank you.


Opening evenings will take place on Tuesday 24th and Wednesday 25th March. You will receive a separate letter about this in the next few weeks.


Nursery term dates: Nursery’s last day before the Easter Holidays will be Thursday 2nd April. Nursery will be closed on Friday 3rd April and will reopen after the Easter break on Monday 20th April.


Thank you for all your help and support and enjoy the half term break.


Mrs Dookhun, Mrs Back, Mrs Alter, Mrs Chada and Mrs Delaney.
