Nursery end of Term

We are very sorry to have to shut the nursery today, Wednesday. We have unfortunately experienced vandalism of broken windows to the extent in the nursery that glass shards have gone through everything and it is essential that the nursery be deep cleaned before we have access for the children.

Thursday arrangements for Teddy Bears Picnic

We intend to go ahead with the Teddy Bear Picnic but only for a shortened time in the garden. We will have the toilets open. AM Group 10.00-11.00 PM group 1.00-2.00

If you can bring your child to the picnic tomorrow and stay that would be great. Please feel welcome to bring younger siblings.

Friday arrangements

Sorry no nursery deep clean will commence next week.

We are very sorry to end the nursery year in this way but wish you all a very happy and safe holiday.

Nursery Snow Day Ideas

Hello to all our nursery children and families,

I hope you are all keeping warm, safe and well during this cold, snowy time.

Here are a few ideas for activities you might want to try while our nursery is closed…

Outside (if it is safe)

Make snow creatures (as a change from snow men!)

Have snow ball throwing challenges (like how far can you throw, make a target to hit, win points)

Make a snow obstacle course

Treasure Hunt – hide a toy for children to find

Write or draw in the snow with sticks

Inside

As it is world book day, enjoy some stories together, there are online stories and activities on the website below…

The Big Little Book Corner

You could still dress up as your favourite character and maybe act out your favourite story using funny voices!

Create a snowy scene in a shoebox from recycled materials

Make up your own stories with a snow theme

Create a cosy indoor story den

Have fun and enjoy some time to play together!

Looking forward to hearing all about your snow days,

Miss Watson

Christmas Jumper Day Friday 15th December


On Friday 15 December we’re inviting all pupils to take part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

The whole school and nursery will be taking part, with everyone getting the chance to show the world their silly side by wearing their favourite festive knits for the day.

We’re asking pupils to make a £1 donation, or whatever they can give, to help save children’s lives around the world.

The money they raise will help Save the Children give the world’s forgotten children a brighter future. It could help bring essentials like healthcare, education, protection and food to the millions of children around the world who are missing out on the most basic support.

And you won’t need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun – simply decorate an old woolly to create your own crafty masterpiece, or wear something festive.

We’d really appreciate your help to make Christmas Jumper Day a huge success.

With your support we’re looking forward to a woolly great day!
