Miss Hancock and Mrs Walker

Spring Term 2018

Welcome back and a very happy new year to all our Nursery children and their grown-ups. We hope you all had a lovely Christmas.

This term we continue to follow the children’s interests to help us plan our activities. Last term the children showed a great interest in our ‘Christmas Post Office’ so we have set up a permanent shop role play area for the children to use. This half term it is going to be a supermarket…we are looking forward to seeing what ideas the children have next!

We will also be planning activities related to upcoming special occasions such as Valentines Day, Friendship week, Easter and Red Nose day. This term we will be using monies raised from the Christmas performances and photographs to do cooking and baking, and growing as well as buying sensory resources for messy play. Keep an eye out for future website posts about what we have been doing!

 We are also planning our annual Nursery trip for this term. Please keep an eye out for a letter this half term with more information.

 Please also check the nursery noticeboard for our shared story and special book times for this term. 

 Thank you for your continued support
