A warm welcome to our Nursery!
Our priority is to provide a safe, happy and secure environment for the children and we are delighted with the way the children are settling in.
The children thoroughly enjoy being outdoors what ever the weather. Therefore, we would be very grateful if you could provide wellies that the children can leave in school. We also have Forest school sessions where the children learn how to work together, share their ideas and on occasions we have a camp fire and roast some tasty treats. These sessions are on Mondays.
P.E. is on Wednesday. It gives the children great confidence if they are able to wear a pair of shorts under their uniforms as they can begin to become more independent. Please ensure that your child’s name is clearly marked on their clothes.
We operate a Healthy Schools Policy and the children are encouraged to eat fruit, drink milk or water during our snack time. The children all sit together and have a selection of fruit. Snack money is 75p per week or if it is more convenient you can pay for a term or half term. Please enclose the money in an envelope clearly labelled with your child‘s name and place in the ‘in box‘.
Friday is our ‘library’ day when the children can choose a book to take home. We would recommend that the children have a book bag to take their books home in. These can then be used throughout your child‘s time at Bishopston. Book bags are available from the school at your request for £3.50.
Our theme this term is ‘Let’s celebrate’. Initially we will be exploring the children‘s thoughts and ideas on this topic. This can include how they move, how animals move, transport etc. We will then see where the children lead us.
In Nursery we spend our time learning through exploring and playing in the areas that interest us.
