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

                         Getting to know Jesus                       

Children will begin to know that Jesus has a great love  for each of us and we will be thinking of ways in which we can show our love for Jesus. We will hear stories about how Jesus cured people who were ill and we will talk about ways in which we can show our love for people who are ill. 

We will begin to know that Jesus showed that he was the Son of God at the wedding at Cana and begin to think about what this means for us.
