Dear parents and carers


We are half way through this academic year already!  Our new children have settled in well and our older children have been enjoying their maths and phonics group activities.  We have had a very successful enrichment week, learning about the importance of taking care of our planet and thinking about how we use plastic.  We had brilliant ‘trash mob’ groups- where we picked up rubbish in the garden, the children also sorted paper and plastics so please encourage them to continue with this at home too when putting your recycling into the bins.

We hope you have a very lovely half term break.  Our new topic is ‘Growing’ after the holidays.  The curriculum web is online so please take a minute to look at it so you can see what we will be doing at nursery; you can reinforce this learning at home.


Science Museum Visitors

PLEASE PAY £2.50 ASAP if you haven’t already done so.

We are very fortunate to have booked the busy Outreach Team from the Science Museum to come into school and deliver their dynamic workshops on Wednesday 26th February.

Children in the morning nursery will experience the Museum’s Bubble Show.  The children will find out the secret Science Museum bubble recipe, learn how certain materials can change the way others behave, and step inside a human bubble.

Afternoon Nursery will participate in Three Little Pigs, an interactive storytelling workshop in which the children will help the three little pigs choose the best materials to build a strong house that will keep them safe from the big bad wolf. 

In order to help meet the cost of the workshops, we are asking parents for a small donation of £2.50 per child.  Children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding do not need to pay.  No children will be excluded from participating, but experiences like this can only go ahead if the level of financial support is sufficient.  Please pay any contributions in cash to nursery staff between now and half term.
