Christmas Newsletter 2019

We are coming to the end of term with only a few weeks left until we break up for Christmas. There are plenty of activities and fun for the children to participate in, especially with Christmas around the corner.

We would like to reassure you that if your child has not done a “craft” activity (painting or sticking), it does not mean that they have not been busy; they have been busy learning through their play by doing other activities.

As the weather is getting colder please remember to leave your child’s coat, please ensure coats are labelled with their names. Remember we go outside everyday. This is part of the EYFS curriculum and is so important children are dressed appropriately and are ready for all adventures. We are having a lot of bags left within the lobby, please ensure these have also got your child’s name on it. Please encourage your child to leave their toys at home as these can get lost or misplaced. Thank you.

If your child is due to start school in September 2020, it is time to start completing their online application, for more details on this please see the poster within the lobby area.

WANTED

If you have any unwanted buttons, food colouring, craft items, spare clothes, underwear, they would be gratefully received. If your child has been changed at Nursery, could you please return any items of clothing as soon as possible.

CHRISTMAS CONCERT

The last day of “normal” nursery session is on Wednesday, 11th December 2019. On Thursday, 12th December 2019 we will be holding our annual Christmas Concert both in the morning and afternoon.  Details on which concert your child will be attending will be placed on the nursery door.
