Welcome to Nursery at Greenleas. Our topic this half term is 'Percy the Park Keeper'. We shall be sharing a range of stories featuring Percy and his friends and taking part in lots of activities related to these. We will also be looking at non-fiction books about woodland animals. We will be welcoming Grandparents of the children in Ducklings class into school on Thursday 27th February to celebrate our annual Grandparents afternoon! We will also be holding our Mother's Day Celebration assemblies for both Ducks and Ducklings on Friday 20th March. In Maths, we will be continuing our work on number recognition, ordering and 1:1 correspondence counting.
All children need is a bookbag for their works of art, clearly named and only one key ring attached so it is easily identifiable. Your child will also need a named water bottle so that they can access it at any time. Milk is provided and you can sign up for this on our website via the home page under 'booking and paying' then select the milk option. We will be having regular PE sessions once the children are used to the routines of the classroom. They do not require a PE kit.
Now that the weather is colder, please make sure that your child has wellington boots and a hat and gloves in school as well as a warm coat. In Nursery, we access the outside learning area in all weathers and also take part in forest school activities, so it is important for the children to have appropriate clothing.
A gentle reminder that we are a healthy school. If your child is celebrating their birthday and you wish them to distribute a healthy treat we are happy to make sure they are first out at the end of the session so they can offer a treat to friends - once their friends have checked with their grown ups. If you would like to send in fruit or raisins we can distribute these at snack time. Previously, parents have given a small party bag sized toy if they did not wish to send in fruit. Thank you for your understanding.
