Nursery Newsletter
Autumn 2017
Welcome to Nursery!
We hope you all had a pleasant Summer holiday and are ready for the term ahead. This promises to be a busy term as we welcome all our new children and their families.  All class names have been changed to tube stations.  We are now: Morning – Leyton and Afternoon – Leytonstone.  We hope to take the children to visit the stations later in the year.  Maybe you can take them for a ride and talk about the stations as you pass by.
Don’t Forget…
  • Book Bags are changed every Friday. Please bring in their school book bag and they will be able to bring home a story to share at home.  Book Bags are £4 each.

This term be will be learning about ourselves and our families.  We will be making a display in the Nursery so we would like you to send in a photo of your family that we can use.
Our stories this half term will also feature families. Please check on the information board for the story and rhyme of the week.  We send home a copy of the rhyme for you to share at home.
We will be focusing on sharing and turn taking as for some of our children this will be the first time in a Nursery setting.
In the Nursery we support the children to become independent learners. Please take the time to encourage your child to dress themselves – especially when putting on and taking off their coats.  We teach them to put the hood on their head first and then wiggle their arms in.

Go to www.walthamforest.gov.uk – applying for a primary school place.  We suggest you do this as soon as possible.
  • Please be patient when we are dismissing the children at the end of the sessions. The children’s safety is of the utmost importance and we need to ensure that each child is delivered safely to their appropriate adult. We would be grateful if older siblings could wait behind the wooden fence to prevent too many people by the doors when we are sending out the children.  The Nursery staff thank you for your co-operation.
If you have any concerns about any aspect of your child’s development, please talk to a member of staff we are always happy to help.
