If your child displays coronavirus symptoms including a cough or temperature they will need to follow government test and isolation policies, including track and trace. Please inform the school office as soon as possible if you or your child displays symptoms or tests positive for covid.

Please do not send them into the nursery or on school grounds to prevent further spread of the virus until you have followed government guidance.

Thank you for your continued support with: keeping the staff and children safe, nursery open and the children in education.

 Important information

To all parents:

Can Parents please bring in a CUP, Wellington boots and a drawstring bag with spare clothes to stay at nursery if not done so already. Please LABEL  all your children's belongings, including both shoes. Please ensure your child knows what their cup and wellies look like. 

Please do not send your child in with a school bag as we have very limited space and all spare clothing should be stored in the nursery. Please do not send your child in with water bottles as we have cups stored in the nursery.

Most importantly please do not allow children to bring toys from home into the nursery as they may get lost, cause conflict with other children or become a dangerous hazard. All resources in the nursery are risk assessed and age appropriate to maintain the children's safety.

Thank you for your assistance

Bedtime story Scheme

Due to staff absences, the Bedtime Story Scheme will be postponed this week. Apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

If you wish to access books online you can find many here via the Havering Library site: , alternatively you can watch nursery staff read picture books on the Broadford Primary School Youtube page:

From Friday 21st January 2022 all children will receive books for you to read with them at home. Early reading ignites creativity, sparks curiosity, and stimulates the imagination in young children. Sharing books, stories and rhymes develops skills to support the transition to school.

Books will be sent home every FRIDAY.

Please return all books by WEDNESDAY.

Unfortunately books which are lost or damaged will need to be paid for.


All books will need to be returned in the last week of each term.

Our topic focused learning

This week the children have been settling back into the nursery routine after enjoying family time over the christmas holidays. The children have settled back extremely well, expressing their emotions of excitement to see friends and teachers, as well as missing spending time at home. We have focused our learning around our favourite activities to support the childrens return to school, including books around starting school or missing home.  

Book of the week

Nursery rhyme of the week

This week the children have been practicing the nursery rhyme action song: Roly poly

Teacher requests

We politely ask if you have any unwanted bath bombs we would very much appreciate if we could have them please? They will be used with the children in their water play.

Also if your child has grown to a new shoe size, may we please keep their old wellies for our spring flower planting project? Or any old wellies at home you no longer need would be appreciated.
