Nursery - Shrimps 2020 - 2021

Mrs Nolan

Welcome to our Shrimp’s Class Page!

Hello everyone,

Well, what a lovely first half term it has been.

We are so pleased with how the children have settled into nursery and how they have been superstars with all our requests for handwashing and other little routines related to Covid-19 restrictions. The children have really enjoyed learning about Autumn and all the harvest songs, we hope you have watched the EYFS Harvest which is now on the website. Well done to my lovely little Shrimps, you really are the best singers in the entire school!

We are so excited for the weeks leading up to Christmas. Our topics are ‘To Infinity and Beyond’, ‘In the Night Sky’ and ‘The Magic of Christmas’. The rockets have already landed in the nursery and are ready for the children to play with. We have new and exciting space themed stories for the children to enjoy in the book and talking area. We are hoping to collect lots of big cardboard boxes for the children to create their own space rockets, so if you have a big box they could climb in then please bring it in and I will put it in quarantine for 72 hours before the children will play with it (keeping us safe from Covid-19).

Towards the end of the term, I am sure we will be learning some Christmas songs and hopefully we will get to create another video of the Christmas Story for you to watch and enjoy. Watch this space!

Don’t forget, during their time with us the children can choose to play inside or in the outdoor area throughout the day. Inside we have a book and talking corner, a small world and construction area, creative corner, writing and mark-making area, maths area, role play area and a large interactive white board for them to play with. In the outdoor area we have a mud kitchen and digging area, water play, sand play, role play, large and small construction, ball skills, bikes and trikes and many other areas and activities.

Please remember that if your child attends nursery on a Wednesday they will go to our Forest School, these sessions are our ‘Welly Wednesdays!’. Please remember your child needs to come dressed in their waterproof clothes and wellies before they come to school that day and a bag with a coat and shoes with their names on needs to be sent in with their name also written on the bag. This is so that we are ready to go and have lots of fun exploring quicker then.

Please remember the children will need to bring a water bottle filled with fresh water each day and their name written clearly on it. The children do have a mid morning snack of a piece of fruit and will be offered a drink of milk or their water bottle as their drink. We do refill the bottles once they have drank all their water as the day goes on. If your child stays for lunch they have the option to bring a packed lunch from home or buy a school dinner, which you can order with us each morning.

We are looking forward to all our fun learning with your lovely children this Autumn Term 2 in Nursery.

Thank you for your kind support,

Mrs Nolan,

Mrs Bridgwater, Mrs Hulme and Miss Dyke.
