Transition Day will take place on Tuesday 5th July.  If your child is moving into Reception at Harlyn please remember to arrive in the Reception playground at 9.15am (see previous letter for additional information). There is no afternoon Nursery on this day for children moving up to Reception at Harlyn. If your child is continuing in Nursery or moving to a Reception class at a different school they can attend their Nursery session as normal. Children who attend paid for additional hours are also able to stay for their lunch/afternoon session if they wish or we can credit your account.


Library: please send in your child’s Harlyn 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. Nursery’s last library day will be Wednesday 6th July – please bring in your library book so that we can return it.


Teddy Bears Picnic: on Thursday 7th July Nursery will be having a Teddy Bears Picnic with Reception. The children are allowed to bring a cuddly toy to take on our picnic.


Open Afternoon: on Friday 8th July there will be an opportunity for you to look around the school and visit classes from 2.45pm – 3.15pm. Please note that as this is Nursery’s last day of term we ask that parents do not come to look around the Nursery. If you wish to visit other classrooms and your child is in afternoon Nursery, please feel free to collect your child between the above times and take them with you around the school. If you are not able to join us please collect your child from Nursery at the normal time.


Nursery term dates: Nursery’s last day will be Friday 8th July in order for staff to carry out the transition programme for children joining us in September.


Enjoy the half term break and we will see you on Monday 6th June.
