Dear Parents and Carers,
We would like to welcome you all to our Nursery. It was lovely to meet you at the meeting/playdate and we look forward to helping your children settle into Nursery and to have a very special start to the year.
We would like to emphasise how important it is for us all as parents and teachers to communicate regularly so that your child’s individual needs are met and they receive a positive and stimulating introduction to learning. Do not hesitate to speak to any of the Nursery Team, sharing your questions or concerns. You can ask us to call you if there is not time in the morning or at the end of the day. You can message us on Class dojo.
This term our main focus is ensuring the children have a safe and happy induction to Nursery. Our themes include ‘getting to know each other, family, pets, school and the world around us’. We shall also be finding out about Autumn.
Your child will be given a reading book. Please share this with them at home. Reading the story, talking about the pictures and allowing them to handle the book and turn the pages. We will swap these books every few weeks. We will also give you a book mark where you can draw a smiley face or write a comment every time your child reads. When they have read 10 times and filled the grid please give it to us and we will give them a sticker and extra praise. We will then give you a new bookmark/ grid to fill in.
Your child will have a Learning Diary. If you would like to contribute to the diary please fill in a ‘house’ telling us about something new your child has tried, said or achieved at home. Please check your child’s tray each day as we shall put any pictures, paintings, writing and objects that they have collected or made in here for you to take home. Whilst we are following Covid regulations we shall pass their pictures to you. Later in the term we are going to start online diaries. This is called Tapestry. I will send further information when we are ready to start this.
Once induction has finished we shall be in touch with some important dates for the start of this year. These will include a parent session to discuss what happens in Nursery and reading, Children in Need activities and Christmas! We shall display these dates in the Nursery entrance area (on the table outside) and on Class dojo.
We look forward to working together with you, getting to know your children and preparing them for their journey through school.

Please remember to collect your child's reading folder from the classroom each day.
Please let your child hold the book and turn the pages.
After you have read the book to your child talk about the pictures and the story.
Change the book as often as you would like and please fill in the reading record.
