Summer 2 2021
Having carried out a thorough risk assessment, extensive staff training and made the necessary adjustments to the setting and provision, we continue to open to all children and look forward to welcoming families new and existing. Although some things will be different, the staff are still the same, and continue to offer exciting opportunities in a nurturing and safe environment.
We will continue to spend as much of our time as possible outside, so ask that you please ensure that your child is equipped for the weather. We ask that, wherever possible, spare clothes and wellies are left at nursery to minimise the number of items moving between home and the setting. Now that the weather has begun to improve, please remember to apply sun protection before nursery, send a hat in with your child, and they still need those wellies for playing in the water, mud and forest. And label everything please!!
Bug hunting was a very popular topic last term, equally so Going on a Bear Hunt - although luckily that proved less successful, except for the teddy bear found in the forest area! Many of our seeds have now emerged and children have been diligently watering the plants and removing to the forest any slugs or snails we find eating our crops.
We continue with the searching theme into our last half term, this time looking for treasure!! Our pirates will be searching for numbers, shapes and letters through a variety of fun pirate themed games and activities. We will be supporting our leavers by practicing lots of those vital independence skills to ensure they are school ready, whilst working with our younger children to help them prepare for the changes for them from September too.
Alongside this, there will be opportunities to play in the forest area, and with the variety of toys and creative resources on offer in the garden and classroom.
We will continue keep in touch with you via class DOJO, which is a safe and secure way for us to share information with you about your child, and what they have been up to at nursery, and for you to ask any questions and tell us any news. We will also share here ideas for you to support your child's learning at home.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
