Love, learn and live in Christ!

This week is the second of the season of ADVENT. We now light the first two purple candles on our Advent Wreath. The first purple candle represents HOPE. The second represents LOVE. What do you do to show your family and friends that you love them?

So your child has as much fun as possible and gains as much independence as possible, please remember ;

  • Dress your child in clothing and coats that they can manage themselves
  • Sensible footwear, no sandals, flip flops, crocs or open toed shoes
  • Trousers or shorts to be able to access roktagons and outdoor climbing
  • No expensive clothing or coats they will get dirty and children do get anxious
  • Wellingtons in winter or wet weather- you can leave labelled wellies at Nursery
  • Encourage your child to become independent in using the toilet, it boosts their confidence and self esteem and gives them independence in the Nursery

The Way, the Truth and the Life

 This term our topic will be

                         God's Family                         

Children will begin to understand that God made all the people in the world to be part of his family and that we are part of it too. Children will begin to know and love God and show our love for him by helping one another.  Children will begin to learn that God has given us gifts so that we can show his love to others.

Through the story of the Nativity children will learn that God's greatest gift to us was to send us his only son Jesus and to be able to respond to that gift.
