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 World                          

Children will begin to understand that God loves and cares for each one of us and we will talk about what we think and feel about this. We will hear about all the things God created for us and we will respond to this. We will learn about how God has asked us to care for the world and we will think about how we can help to do this.

We will begin to know that God made each one of us different and special and we will talk about what this means and reflect on this.
