Nursery - Ireland
We hope you all had a wonderful half term and shared lots of exciting adventures together. This term we will be learning about 'Fabulous Food and Celebrations'. We will be looking at a range of celebrations including, Bonfire Night, Diwali, Birthdays, Chinese New Year and Christmas. We will also be exploring signs of Winter. As part of our topic we will be going on a Winter Walk and visiting the local shop to buy ingredients for our cooking. More information about what we are learning can be found in our Knowledge Organiser.
This term, we are supporting the children to become more independent. We would like all parents to leave the children at the classroom door and allow the children to put their things away themselves. We will be starting our day with morning rhymes and Wake and Shake as part of our carpet time. Please ensure children arrive promptly to the start of session AM: 8:30am and PM: 12:30pm. Children arriving late in unsettling for all children and means they miss out on vital learning.
Please ensure your children bring their PE bag, water bottle, book bag and coat on the first day back.
