Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of our children and parents. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year! We are welcoming some new children into Nursery this January. They are settling really well into our class and we are very much looking forward to getting to know them. As always, please contact us if we can be of any assistance to you with regard to your child and feel free to pop in if you need a chat. This term we will be looking at a selection of traditional tales and we will be looking closely at the season ‘Winter’. We will also be looking at Chinese New Year and how it is celebrated around the world.

Learning Journeys

Please could I remind all parents and carers to please return your child’s learning journey that was given to you before the Christmas holidays. These are an important document that we need to keep in the nursery so please return them as soon as possible. We hope you enjoyed looking through them 😊

School Applications

If your child is due to start school in September, please make sure you have applied for a school place by


Please note that a place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place at the associated primary school, therefore you must still apply.

Forest School

We will be continuing with forest school every WEDNESDAY while the children are at Nursery. Please could your children come to Nursery in clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty, as it is often very muddy down there! Your children’s clothing will also need to be warm, as we will be out in the cold. If your child does not have wellies at Nursery, they will also need to bring in a pair for forest school.

Weather Appropriate Clothing

We will also continue to do outdoor activities during the winter months so please ensure your child brings lots of warm clothing to nursery that is labelled with their name. It is also helpful to have a pair of wellies that can be left at Nursery too.

Medical Forms

If you haven’t already, please return all medical and permission forms to Nursery. We are hoping to go on a trip this term and these need to be returned to ensure your child can come. Thank you to all who have already done this.
