Phoneme of the Week (b) 

Next week will be the letter ‘b’. All children are invited to bring in an object beginning with this letter to share in our ‘Sound Basket’ circle time. This will take place every Monday and will form a regular part of our weekly timetable. Please place items in our ‘Sound Basket’ which will be placed next to the self-registration  name cards at the door.

Physical Development (P.E)

Each week, we will have a games session on the school field. For the activity, please could the children come to nursery already dressed in their P.E kit. Preferably black shorts or cycling shorts, a white t-shirt or polo shirt and plimsolls/trainers would be the ideal, to match the P.E uniform in main school. If the weather is cooler then black/grey joggers or black leggings are also acceptable.

P.E session for am children Tuesday morning

P.E session for pm children Wednesday afternoon

Full time children are welcome to wear their P.E kit on both days of the week, as they will be joining in both sessions.

Expressive Arts and Design

We created observational drawings of flowers


We made up our own ‘Under the Sea’ stories, creating out own characters and settings.

Physical Development

We held our annual ‘Sports Day. Thank you to our fabulous audience for their support during the races and for being so pro-active and joining in during the carousel.

Suggestions for Home

Recap the letters learnt so far in phonics.  Which letters can you name? Which letters can you point to or find in a book? Can you pronounce each phoneme? Can you blend the phonemes in simple three letter words e.g ‘cat, ‘dog’, ‘man, ‘big’?


What I need at nursery daily:

  • Named wellies
  • A waterproof coat
  • Book bag
  • Home-school book
  • Spare clothes bag (this does not need to be nursery uniform)
  • plimsolls
  • During the summer months please ensure that your child is wearing a high factor of sunscreen (SPF50 if possible) . This should be applied before nursery.
  • Sun hats

Book bags should be stored in the labelled boxes (Part-time girls, part-time boys, full-time children). Please ask a member of staff if you are unsure of where to locate. Please feel free to personalise book bags with familiar key rings or add stickers to their name label. This helps to ensure that they go home with the correct owner at the end of the session.

Snack Payments

Snack will be £3.00 this half-term. Alternatively, it can be paid weekly at 50p per week. A purple folder is kept on the snack table, along with a tick list and a pot for you to post your money. Please indicate to show that you have made a payment.

Show and Tell every Friday- Please name your items and avoid sending in valuable toys. Topic related objects/photographs are much more interesting to share. A ‘Show and Tell’ box will be placed near the door for you to store your items until circle time.


09/07/2018- Stay and Play- the last one 🙁 The am session will be 9:00-10:00 and the pm session will be 2:15-3:15.

The theme for ‘Stay and Play’ on Monday 9th July will be water play. We will be having a water fight on our school field and the session times for parents to join us will be from 9:00-10:00 am for the am nursery and from 2:15 to 3:15pm for the afternoon class. Children will need to bring in a change of clothes, a towel, a hat and be wearing plenty of sun cream. They may also bring in a water pistol, bubbles or water toys to play with. Historically, the children have completely soaked staff, so parents and carers may also want to bring spare clothes too. Although, I am sure we will have a dry, quiet area if people are not keen to get wet.

The message about the event has gone out on the school APP and a letter was sent home on Friday. However, due to transition events we had a few children absent on Friday so please spread the word.

Enjoy your weekend,

Mrs Todd and the nursery team
