BOOKS, BOOKS and more BOOKS  ..........reading is the best !!!  

Please try and read with your child daily. We try to foster a love of books and stories in the Nursery and your child will gain so much from having you read with them and show them that books and reading is important and enjoyable.

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 understand to know that Jesus has a great love for each one of us and we need to think of ways in which we can show our love for Jesus. We will learn about how Jesus cured people who were sick and lame and we will think of 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.
