Cycle 3

The children in Nursery have worked extremely hard during Cycle 2. We have just started Cycle 3 and are excited about all of the learning that will take place.

The children have really flourished and it has been lovely to see them become independent learners.  Every child has their own resources in their tray to access during group work and they are well on their way with writing their names in the morning, well done everyone.

During this cycle we will be having some special visitors in Early Years. We will be receiving a set of eggs which we will be able to see hatch into ducklings. Very exciting! The children will learn about the life cycle of a duckling.  They will have the opportunity to draw and write about them and maybe even hold one!

In cycle 3, we will also be reading some traditional tales including The Ugly Duckling and Jack and the Beanstalk.  These traditional tales tie in with our topic on Understanding the World as we develop an understanding of growth, decay and changes over time.

The children are working hard to learn the set 1 sounds in Read Write Inc and I would like to thank you for your continued support in reading with your child.  The feedback on the home reading books has been very positive and I look forward to welcoming you all to a reading morning in the near future.  More details to follow.

Things to remember:

Spare Clothes

Please ensure your child has spare clothes with them in school at all times, including underwear and socks. It is very important that we are able to change your child and make them comfortable if any toileting accidents occur or if they get wet from water play. We explore the outdoors in all weathers so children need to be dressed appropriately.

All children require a pair of wellies in school.  The children really enjoy outdoor water play and accessing the newly replenished sandpit.

Snack Money

We ask that the children continue to bring in 50p every week, on a Monday, to contribute towards the cost of providing the children with a range of healthy snacks.

Children must be in correct school uniform at all times. This includes appropriate footwear. Please ensure your child’s uniform is clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Thank you

Miss Livesey and Mrs Singh
