Nursery Weekly News - 08/02/2019

Dear parents/carers,

The children are thoroughly enjoying their learning about pets at the moment, and the visit from Mrs Hall’s dog was a real hit! This week the children have been writing letters from George, the dog in our story, saying sorry for all the bad things he has done, and they have also been busy in our vet role play area taking care of all the poorly animals.

Thank you so much to those of you who have brought in your completed home learning – there are some AMAZING dog kennels in our Nursery at the moment, and the children are so proud of them. There is still plenty of time to complete the challenge, as the deadline is the end of next week.

Nursery Garden

Well, my great plans to transform the Nursery garden during the last two weeks didn’t quite go to plan due to the bad weather. We are still waiting for the opportunity to plant our new shrubs and plants to help our outdoor area look a little more inviting. I will trying to dig over the garden in preparation for planting (weather permitting!!) on Tuesday between 3pm and 4pm – if anybody would like to bring a spade to help me you will be very welcome!

Your children are already beginning to be very involved with the garden, and we have introduced “gardening helping hands” each day in Red and Yellow bases to help weed the garden and to be involved in the planting when it is time.

Keeping Healthy

To add to the list of unpleasant bugs going round, chicken pox has joined in too! Obviously, at this time of year everybody is more susceptible to illness and it is especially important to reduce the spread of infection. If you think your child is unwell, please do not bring them in – they need to be wrapped up warm and resting until they are better.


Next week is the final week of this half term, and the following week (w/b Monday 18th February) is a week’s holiday. We return to Nursery on Monday 25th February.

Thank you for your continued support. Please remember that we are always available at the beginning and end of the day if you have any questions or concerns, or you can make an appointment to see me.

Have a lovely weekend,

Julie Simpson
