Nursery - Hopscotch

Weekly Update (Week ending 06-12-19)


This Week.....

Monday morning saw the arrival of the travelling Pantomime: Beauty and the Beast. The children really enjoyed it, singing along to the songs and joining in with the booing! Thanks to the freezing cold weather we have enjoyed some time outside exploring ice! We also baked and decorated our own gingerbread men, women or babies. On Friday we did our first Nativity practice in the hall - I was so proud of all the children as this was a very new experience for them which involves quite a lot of sitting and waiting. They all did brilliantly. We will do a couple more rehearsals next week, including changing into our angel costumes! We've been counting up to 10 using fingers, toes and elves and the children have also decorated the classroom having their own ideas of where and how to put things. 


Thanks so much for all the angel costumes and oranges that have been sent in for our various activities and tombola donations. It was lovely to see so many of you at the parent drop in. I hope you enjoyed seeing the photos of your children hard at work. There will be a chance for us to discuss their progress properly in the new year at the next parent's evening.


I hope to see some of you at the Winter Festival tonight. 


Next Week…

The Christmas fun will continue! At the start of the week we will be learning about and making Christingles ready for a special Christingle Service in school on Wednesday. You can expect to see lots more Christmas crafts coming home and more of those songs that get stuck in your head! 


Supporting Your Child at Home

  • Please can you encourage/remind children about manners? A simple please and thank you go a long way but are not often heard in class - this is particularly evident during snack time. 
  • Can they match numbers to actual objects by giving you the correct amount when you ask for two/four/six of something?
  • Can they talk about some of their favourite parts of a story? What bit did they like best and why? 


Dates and Reminders 

  • December 13th is the PTA Christmas Surprises Room - bring in money and buy a gift.
  • December 17th and 18th will be our EYFS Nativity performances at 9.15. Don't forget to book your tickets (max 4) via the online booking system (see email) by Thursday 12th December. 
  • As previously mentioned we will be doing PE after Christmas. However you do not yet need to buy a PE kit as we will start off just in bare feet! 


Have a good weekend.
