Caterpillars to butterflies
Whilst school has been closed, Mrs Goodwin has been looking after some caterpillars at home and keeping Nursery up to date with their growth. This linked to our home learning topic of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'

Mrs Goodwin and Miss Thorpe-Kennedy are the key workers for all nursery children, each child is assigned a Key Worker when they start Nursery.They work closely with you as parents and your child, to form a special relationship, giving your child reassurance and guidance; helping them to settle quickly into nursery life. Each day the children spend time with their Key Workers where they participate in various activities.
In the Early Years Foundation Stage we use a piece of software/app called Tapestry. It allows us to take photos/videos of your child, link them to the age bands they are working in and then share this with you securely via email. Using this software/app, you will also be able to send photos/videos to Mrs Goodwin which we can share in Key Worker time.
In Nursery your child will bring home a reading book to share with you at home (you can purchase a reading bag through Parent Pay). Your child will choose their own reading book to bring home to share. If you choose to share another book with your child, please write this in their reading record too. Your child will have opportunity to change their reading book every Monday and Thursday. Please ensure you sign your child’s reading record each time you read. Children will read individually with their key worker once a week.
The children have access to outdoors whatever the weather so it is important that your child always has a coat and pair of named wellies they can leave at Nursery. We provide outdoor outfits for messy and wet play.
