Welcome to Nursery and Reception
In this first term of the year we will start with the topic
'This is me'
Our main aim will be to get to know the children and get them settled into their new class/ school.
We will move onto investigating Autumn and the changes that this colourful season brings.
And as the term progresses, we will be learning all about the Hindu festival of Diwali.
We will endeavour to follow the interests of the children throughout their first term with us.
We will also begin to explore the key areas of learning and development such as:
Nursery will have a gymnastics class on a Tuesday am, a P.E session on a Wednesday am and a dance session on a Thursday am.
Mrs Vaughan's class will have a gymnastics session on a Tuesday afternoon.
Mr Denham's class will have a dance session on a Thursday afternoon.
For Reception children please ensure that you send in a P.E kit to remain in school for the full half term to include named items: a white T shirt, black shorts and black P.E pumps. Thank you.

Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning
The Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning are the ways in which children engage with other people and their environment. They underpin learning and development across all areas of the curriculum and support the child to remain an effective and motivated learner; we plan to support these characteristics throughout all of our planning across the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Tapestry is the online learning journal system we use in place of learning journey books. This is where you can see what your child is up to in school and where they are with regard to their learning.
Class teachers will send out details for you to sign up to Tapestry. When you have done this you will be able to view what your child is up to and even add your own entrys from home.
Please help us by uploading any pictures or videos you have at home.
If you need support logging in or have any other problems, please let us know.
Please make sure you send your child with a water bottle every day. We ask that it is only water in water bottles, not juice or fizzy pop.
We encourage children to get fully involved in their learning (through play) which can often result in children and their uniform becoming quite messy. We provide aprons and water proof clothing and try our utmost to limit this for you.
We do our best to make sure your child comes home with the right jumper/cardigan at the end of each day; Please can you make sure your child's jumper has their name written in it clearly to help us.
The best place to write a name so it is less likely to fade is on the inside of the bottom hem at the back. Thanks in advance.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to one of the team or contact us via Tapestry or the school office.
