Important weekly events in Nursery
Tuesday Morning – Forest School .
If it is your child’s turn for Forest School, could you please ensure that they have their Forest School kit with them.
Forest School Kit:
- Warm waterproof coat.
- Wellington boots.
- Older clothes to wear that are appropriate for the time of year to keep the children warm.
- Spare socks.
- In Autumn, winter hats, gloves.
We will provide the children in Nursery with waterproof trousers to wear over their clothes.
Thursday Morning – PE
Could you please ensure that your child has their PE pumps in school. All Nursery children will take part in a PE session. (We will not be introducing full PE change until the Summer term.)
Thursday 11:45-12pm – Parent Reading Groups
You will be informed in writing of your Parent Reading Group dates. Please ask a member of the Nursery staff if you have forgotten your next Reading Group date. Staff will remind you each week.
Nursery Weekly Homework
Weekly ‘Home Learning Challenge’ cards are given out every Monday. There is a specific challenge set for each day (the focus of the challenge will change each half term.) The challenges link to the children’s learning in Nursery and allow you as parents to share in their learning achievements every week.
Please return Home Learning Parent comment sheets every Friday. We really value your feedback; parental voice is key to your child’s learning and helps us to set their next steps.
Learning Bear Targets
Please continue to work on your child’s Learning Bear Targets. We will discuss their progress and set their new Prime Learning targets together at our next Learning Bear Review.
Each half term in Nursery and Reception we will invite you to join us for a Parent Workshop. Every workshop will begin with a short presentation explaining ‘what’ and ‘how’ your child learns, linked to each aspect of learning during their Early Years Education at MBA.
