Our topic this term is When I Grow Up and the children have certainly come up with some very exciting and interesting career choices. A newspaper reporter and taxi driver have already visited the nursery to talk to the children about their work. The children really enjoyed these visits and are looking forward to visits from a police constable, airline cabin crew member , TFL maintenance engineer and a nurse. Most of these visitors are parents of nursery children who have volunteered to come in and spend time talking to the children about their work. If you would like to come in and play a part in bringing this topic to life for the children, please speak to a member of staff. We are most grateful for this contribution to the children’s learning.
Although the weather is cold, we do encourage all the children to spend some time each day exploring and playing outside so please ensure your child has a warm coat, hat and gloves (clearly labelled with their name). Please also ensure that your child keeps a change of clothes in the nursery and remember to replace this if they are changed during the day.
The children really enjoy making models in nursery using recyclable materials e.g. cereal boxes, kitchen roll tubes, various types of packaging. Please bring in anything the children can make use of and drop it into the large blue box in the garden or give it to a member of staff. Please avoid any items that have been used to package foods containing nuts.
We welcome parental involvement in nursery so if you have any skills that can be shared with the children please speak to a member of staff. Later this term there will be an Easter bonnet workshop when you are invited to come in and make an Easter bonnet with your child. Remember, there is always time in the morning for you to stay and read a book with your child or investigate an activity. Don’t forget to check on the gallery pages to see some of the activities your child has taken part in.
