Induction Information September 2020
Induction sessions - commencing Monday 7th Septemeber to Friday 11th Sept
We are in the process of inducting our new children. Mrs Lee rang all parents at the end of last term to provide you with your child’s initial start date and session/group time. We have two groups of children, the first starting at 9.15am – 10.15am and the second group at 10.30-11.30am. Our existing pre-school children will be doing their normal hours of 8.40am – 11.40am (note the slight 5min change). We ask that all parents attend and collect their children promptly from their sessions to avoid coinciding with the next group and session. Thank you.
Nursery starts at 8.40am.
Children must be collected at 11.40am.
Please line up at 11.35am outside the School gate.
Please be prompt.
We are very busy in Nursery baking, gardening and completing art and craft activities. Please help us to enhance these opportunities for your child by bringing your £1 to nursery on Monday mornings. Alternatively, the total amount for this half term is £7 if you would like to make a single payment.
Please note that our Nursery Fund also provides your child with a daily snack. Please see our menu on the Nursery Notice Board.
This term we welcome all of our new children and their families to our Nursery alongside welcoming back some of our older children who will continue their journey with us. We hope that you have enjoyed the Summer break and that you're now looking forward to all the exciting things we have planned for the new school year.
This half term our topic is 'All about Me'. We will be learning how to make new friends whilst settling in to the Nursery routine. We will begin our topic by learning about our body parts and our senses and how we use them.
Please spend some time talking to your child about their senses and the different parts and functions of our amazing bodies.

Stay and Play Sessions
The Stay and Play sessions have not yet restarted, please contact the school office for further updates. The activities are aimed at children aged 2 and 3 years of age and take place in our Nursery. Please see the school office or a member of staff for further details.
We are always working very hard in Nursery to ensure that your child gets the very best start. You will receive a School Newsletter each week and a Nursery Newsletter every half term to keep you informed on our Half Termly Topics, Wow Events, Achievements, and 'At Home' practical activities to support your child's learning at home. This information can also be obtained from our Nursery Notice Board and right here on our class page.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage we use a piece of software/app called Tapestry. It allows us to take photos/videos of your child, link them to the age bands that they are working in and then share this with you via email. This software/app will also enable parents/carers to send photos/videos to Mrs Lee and the Nursery team which we can share with your child throughout the morning. More information will be provided over the next few weeks.
