Thank you for your support – we raised £609 for the Barnardo’s charity.

We would like to thank you all for a wonderful year.   We start every weekday morning by opening up the door to a sea of smiling faces.  Happy children make happy teachers and that is what this year has been about.  We’ve had the privilege of teaching a collection of confident learners, appreciating how each of them is special in their own way.  We will miss them tremendously.

We would also like to say a massive thank you for all your kind messages and generous gifts – we feel very lucky indeed. We hope you all have a lovely holiday.

Love the Nursery Team.

Next week’s learning

The children have chosen their favourite stories, songs, games and activities to revisit next week.  We will be celebrating the fantastic year we have had in Nursery by looking back at what we have learnt and how we have ‘grown’.


This week’s learning

Another great week in Nursery! The children are enjoying our new ‘school’ role play  area and enjoy taking on the roles of both teacher and pupil. They are listening to each other and taking turns to act out the different  roles. The children have  learnt a new poem called  ‘I have a Tiny Turtle’,  so maybe they could perform it to you. Later in the week we carried out an experiment to make a ‘cure’ for dragon pox (based on ideas from the story, Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox by Julia Donaldson).  We also used bicarbonate of soda and white vinegar to make fizzy colours.   Many of the children chose to make headbands, using a range of resources and tools to decorate them.

As part of their transition to Reception we had a circle time to talk about it and answer any questions the children had.

A few highlights:

Playing ‘schools’
Bee headband
Making a river in the sandpit

Finding a cure!

Important Date

Whole School Celebration Evening

On Monday 16th July we will be having our annual celebration evening between 3:30 – 5:30. This is an opportunity to take a look at your child’s work, see their current and new classroom as well as potentially meet their new teacher. There will be a variety of events taking place such as sports, musicians playing and singing, as well as activities within each classroom for you and your child to participate in.

The following events will be taking place…

Genius Time Presentation in the Great Hall 3:45 – 4:15.                                                                        Work and pictures will remain displayed throughout the evening.

Sports on the field or playground:

Year 6 performing songs from Aladdin in the Studio Hall 4:00 – 4:20.

Musicians: There will be various Busking areas, marked out along the corridors, for children to entertain visitors. We will place timers in these areas so that there is ample opportunity for the musicians to perform. So if your child plays a musical instrument, then encourage them to bring it along for all to hear.

Due to the latest successes of the England football team in the World Cup, we have decided to have a World Cup themed mufti day. Children are invited to come to school on tomorrow wearing red and white. Children may wear an England football shirt but no other sports shirts are permitted e.g. Chelsea football top, England rugby top etc. The children can also show their support by coming to school with face paint, flags or any other items that they feel support England.​

We invite you to make a donation, big or small, for your child to wear red and white. This money will go towards the renovations of our school swimming pool.

This week’s learning

Another fantastic week in Nursery! We started the week reading the book ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers and used this to think about how we can be a good friend if we see someone looking sad or lonely. The children said they could invite them to play with them, share their toys or give them a hug! We also enjoyed singing our new song Listen to the Water and made up some actions. We looked back at some of our favourite stories and drew pictures from them, thinking carefully about our choice of colour.   We also visited the Reception outdoor area on Friday and enjoyed playing with their toys and on their equipment.

A few highlights:

Learning how to hula hoop
Making playdough to use for Science Day
Being a superhero for the day!
Helping my friend wash the car

Next week’s learning

Next week our book of the week is Never Snap at a Bubble by Yvonne Winer. We will be learning a new poem about a turtle; making turtle crafts; learning about capacity by making potions and experimenting making fizzy colours.  As part of the  transition to Reception we will be talking about any worries and how to deal with them.
