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

                         New Life                      

Children will begin to understand that because Jesus rose from the dead we can experience Easter. We will learn how Jesus appeared to Mary Magdalene when he rose from the dead and begin to understand why this story is important. Children will  begin to understand the special gift of joy and peace that Jesus gave to the disciples and can also give to us. We will hear and learn about the story of Jesus going back to  his  Father in heaven.
