Nursery Update


If you have any questions about the following dates please see a member of staff in Nursery. Also, please keep an eye on the school facebook page, twitter account, school website and Nursery noticeboard for any further updates.

Outdoor Friday

The Outdoor day we had last week was such a success, nursery staff have decided to continue learning outside every Friday from now until the end of this term. Please could we emphasise the importance of sunscreen and sun hats. Due to council policies nursery staff are not allowed to apply sunscreen to children, so it is very important that sunscreen is applied BEFORE children come to nursery. This should happen every day but even more important on a Friday when we will be outside all session.

Sports Day

Sports day will be on the same day as School sports, Tuesday 30th May. We will start our sports day at 9am-10am for the morning session and 1pm-2pm for the afternoon session. Parents are welcome to join us but this is not essential.

Almond Valley

Our Nursery outing to Almond Valley will take place on Thursday 15th June. Please speak to Dawn Coatham SCCDW if you haven’t returned your slip. If you are not attending the trip or taking your own transport please make sure a member of staff is aware of your plans. Again, we would like to emphasise, sunscreen and hats should be worn on the day or appropriate clothing for wet weather. Coaches will leave Nursery at 9am sharp. Please arrive at Nursery for 8:30am.

Sharing our Learning

Our final shared learning event will take place on

  • Monday 29thMay

Doors will open early at 11am or 3pm. We look forward to welcoming you to Nursery to look at your child’s learning journal and spend time together.

Leavers Celebration

Our aim is to have all our pre-school children together for a final celebration on the morning of Thursday 29th June. We would appreciate if all children returning to Nursery after summer could attend the PM session on this date. Please let us know if you are unable to change sessions.

The morning celebration will begin at 9am. Children should be dropped off no later than 8:50am. A member of staff will open the gate to the garden at 9am for families to join us for an informal garden party. Our presentation to children will begin at 9:10am followed by refreshments. You are welcome to stay and play with your child for the remainder of the session. Two tickets will be allocated per family and children are welcome to wear party clothes.

All children returning to Nursery after summer are welcome to join us in Nursery from 12:30 on Thursday 29th June.

Final Day

Nursery will close for summer on Friday 30th June. Due to AM children having the last session before Christmas, PM children are entitled to the last session this term. All AM children will finish Nursery on Thursday 29th June and PM children are welcome to attend Nursery from 8:30 am on Friday 30th June and should be collected by 11:30am.

Thank you for your continued support,
