Nursery Newsletter 8.4.19

Dear Parent/Carer,

Thank you for your patience whilst we have moved the Nursery. Staff are very excited for the children and parents to see the new environment, we are very sure the children will love the added space and make fantastic memories there in their last term of Nursery.
This week our story is 'A little bit brave' a story about a little rabbit who finds some courage and has an adventure. It takes the children on a journey through lots of different settings introducing new vocabulary on the way.

This week we will be re-establishing routines in a new environment and ensuring the children understand how to use and put away the equipment properly. However we also have lots of enhancements for the children to extend their learning with us throughout the week.

On Monday it is Nursery and Reception's turn to pick litter. We will talk about our environment and why it is important for us to look after it.  Each year our school council commits to raising money to sponsors young lady who lives in Uganda. This sponsorship is facilitated through the organisation Watoto. Watoto is a family of people from all over the world who are working together to ensure that the forgotten have a place to belong.
On Wednesday 10th April, we are fundraising to raise money to cover the cost of Brandina’s sponsorship. We are asking children to come to school dressed in one of the colours of the Uganda flag - red, yellow or black. This could be a t-shirt or jumper, scarf or pair of socks. We suggest 50p per child towards the Watoto charity for the occasion.

As it's almost Easter time the children will be encouraged to count the Easter bunnies carrots for him. They will be able to match or write the number of carrots for the bunny.

Communication and Language 
We will be discussing our story of the week in small groups as part of our language activities this week. The children will be encouraged to answer questions including who, where, what and why about the story. 

Knowledge of the World
As it is nearly Easter the children have lots of Easter themed stories and props to explore including 'Peter Rabbit A Pop up Easter Egg Hunt'. They have chicks and shells to count and sort independently.

The children are also using our brand new cooking facilities to create their own Easter nests this week. They have picture cards to order and will be encouraged to work as independently as possible.
