Autumn 2

 A big welcome to the new Nursery 1 children who will be joining us in Autumn 2. In Autumn 2 we shall be having our last few sessions with the coaches from Bradford City The children have really enjoyed these sessions. I am sure we have some potential, future football players in our Nursery.

 Our new core story is ‘One Cold Dark Night’. This is a lovely story about Ned, the hedgehog who is looking for a home for winter. Through the story, we are going to learn about the signs of autumn and winter. Sian and Bella are going to lead a workshop with the children then they will hold a performance for parents and children. Our Mathematics focus is Shape and we have many exciting activities planned around this theme.

In order to support the children to be independent, we are going to have our dress yourself challenge where we encourage the children to put on their own coat, hat and scarf. Your support with this will be most appreciated.

On 12th December, we will be holding our popular calendar-making workshop for parents and children. We will be having our Christmas parties on 19th December.

 On 2nd December, we will be holding our Open Day for prospective Reception parents.  If you have a child starting Reception in 2020 please come along and visit our very popular and successful Reception classes. We hope you will choose to apply for a place at our school.

As you know, many people in our community rely on food banks. Through December, Nursery will be collecting dried or tinned items to donate to our local foodbank. If you are able to contribute at least one item, we would be most grateful.

On Saturday 14th December, St Matthew’s Church will be celebrating their 170th Anniversary; there will be a display in the school and church with contributions from our children. Everyone is very welcome to take part in the celebrations on that day.

On behalf of the Nursery staff many thanks for your continued support.May we wish you all a happy and peaceful break with your families and our best wishes for 2020.

Mrs Dyson (EY Leader and Phase 1 leader)
