The Nursery class has had a fantastic half term. The children really enjoyed our topic 'People Who Help Us'. They were really interested and were fully engaged in all the exciting activities we planned.

We welcomed visitors who helped enhance our learning and understanding of how people help us and what we can do to help them.

Thank you to all our parent readers and parent chefs that came in this term. New rosters are filling up fast. Do continue to read to the children over the holiday. We have been talking about rhyming words and there are many books that are fun and engaging that identify rhyming verses.

In Reception we have had such a busy week. We started with a Chinese New Year story and made some fantastic 'Year of the Pig' lucky pictures and had a special story. Thank you to our parent helpers for this activity.

We have sent home a parent feedback questionnaire in your child's bag. This will help us when we are planning for our next half term as well as helping us what your child does outside of school.

Thank you to all our parents who attended our Parents' Workshops. We hope you found the presentation and work stations beneficial. The power point has been put on the school website.

Next term will be very exciting where we will be reading lots of fairy tales and traditional tales and we will focus on a few of our favourites. Week 1 is' Art Week' where we will be looking at art work by Kandinsky and Piet Mondrian. Our second week back is 'Book Week' where we will be writing and illustrating our own stories. You may wish to help the children think of ideas of what they would like to write a story about.

We have lots of exciting things planned for the term.

Have a safe and restful holiday,
The Nursery and Reception Team
