Autumn 1 2019

On behalf of Mrs Halmshaw,Mrs Mehmood and myself I would like to welcome back our existing parents. We would like to offer a big welcome to our new parents and thank you for selecting our Nursery. We are welcoming a large number of children over the next few weeks as over 30 of our children left us in July to start Reception.

As you may know all the classes are named after famous Yorkshire people. Our Nursery is named after Margaret McMillan who was a great pioneer for Nursery education in Bradford. I have put some information about her on our information board.

As usual, we have a busy half term planned. Our Core Story is Mrs Wishy Washy and we invite parents to join us on Monday 16th September to launch the story. There will be an opportunity for you to do an activity with your child that will be linked to the story. We will be continuing our involvement with ’50 things to do before you are 5’. I continue to work closely with Mrs Locke to arrange as many events as possible with which you can be involved.

We shall be cooking and eating different food e.g. soup, pizza, buns etc. We shall be planting bulbs in our Nursery garden and observing closely the signs of autumn. The children are encouraged to be outdoors at all times so please send them in suitable clothes and shoes.

I shall be out of Nursery on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning. On these sessions, Miss Gordon and Mrs Bedford will cover me.

We say a big thank you to Mrs Raheesa Khan who was our Nursery governor last year. She was supportive to the Nursery. We welcome Mr James Fenton as our new Nursery governor and look forward to working with him for the benefit of your children.

We look forward to working with you and your families throughout another exciting year in our very successful and popular Nursery.
