Important Nursery Update

Hello Everyone.

We are really looking forward to welcoming all the nursery children back next week.  The children’s days will remain the same as they were before the Christmas holidays. Unfortunately, however there have been some changes to the drop off and pick up times. Please see below for details

Monkeys and Elephants to attend on a Monday and Tuesday, Tigers and Giraffes to attend on a Wednesday and Thursday

  • Drop off – 8:15 am or 8.45 am
  • Pick up – 3:30 pm or 4:15 pm

If you previously collected your child at 3:15 pm we will assume that they will now be collected at 3:30 pm. If you would like to change to 4.15pm or you would like to change your pick up time from 4.15pm to 3.30pm please let us know by emailing or phoning the school or nursery.

When dropping off and collecting children we ask the following of you

  • please avoid congregating outside school gates at either end of the school day
  • please follow the national FACTS guidance in relation to 2m physical distancing
    and wearing face coverings.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

Shape Hunt

Do you think you can all be like the animals from The Animal Tale story and become shape detectives.  Have a look around your house and see if you can find some squares, circles, rectangles and triangles.

Remember these facts to help you:

  • a square has 4 sides that are all the same length
  • a triangle has 3 sides
  • a rectangle has 4 sides, 2 short sides and 2 long sides
  • a circle is round with zero sides
  • a square has 4 corners
  • a triangle has 3 corners
  • a circle has 0  corners

 

 

Welcome Back

Hello Everyone, hope you are all well and have enjoyed the February break.

Did you have fun in the snow? Mrs Wilson’s dog enjoyed catching snowballs.

We are looking forward to hearing your news so remember to let us know how you have been keeping busy.

 

Migration

Every year certain birds move from one place to another,  some may travel thousands of miles.  These long trips are called migrations. 

Why

  • to find better food supplies,
  • to find a safe place to have their babies,
  • to find warmer places

When

  • change in weather
  • change in the length of day
  • less food is available

Destination

  • it is not known exactly how birds know where to go but scientists believe the information is passed on genetically, so they know when they are born

How 

  • instincts
  • they use the stars, the sun, and earth’s magnetism to help them
  • they usually always return home to where they were born
