MESSAGES

  • Save the date: Nursery Christmas Show Thursday 7 December

  • Children who are ill need to be at home to recover as we cannot  care for sick children in school and do not want illness to spread to the others. Please see our school policy for these common occurences:

-Diarrhoea (2 or more episodes in 24h that is new or unusual): Stay home for 48 hours since the last episode.

-Vomiting (more than 2 times and/or occurring with fever): Stay home for 48 hours since the last episode of vomiting

-Vomiting (1 isolated occurrence without fever): Stay home for 24 hours since vomiting

-Fever (temperature equal to or more than 37.6 degrees celsius): Stay home 24 hours after the pupil is found fever free without intake of fever lowering medication

If your child is ill, please let your child’s teacher know and also whether the illness is contagious or not.

  • Please remember we are a nut free school, this means you may not send any nut products at all to school at any time, this includes Nutella, snack bars that contain nuts, nut butters, nut oils or nuts.
  • ATTENTION When collecting your child at the end of the day, it would be helpful and more secure if parents could stand further back from the door. This allows children to leave more safely and for teachers to recognise parents more easily.

FOXES AND PANTHERS

The children have really enjoyed learning about pets and talking about their own pets in class. We will have some very special visitors coming in on Monday. The children will have the opportunity to meet some guinea-pigs. We will read the story of ‘I Love Guinea-Pigs’ prior to the visit and we will also think of some questions that we can ask about them too. We will talk about how to look after them and how to gently stroke them. If you would prefer your child to not touch the guinea-pigs then please let Mrs Robertson or Miss Chilvers know.

The children will be making a salt dough figure of their favourite pet in class, thinking carefully about what it looks like.

During maths the children will be practising to count objects carefully and match the amount with the numeral.

During Mandarin the children will be matching the animals to their home and learning vocabulary surrounding this activity.

We have already started learning songs for our Christmas Production and the children are sounding beautiful. More information will follow shortly regarding costumes.

Children have been intested in exploring quanitites and capacity and using a variety of mathematical language. To enhance this we will create a role play  ‘Baker’s Shop’ and the children will continue to do real baking around the Christmas theme. Pupils will have the opportunity to create recipes to encourage writing skills. 

At group times the children will be encouraged to share their ideas about giving and receiving and how if makes us feel.

De goede Sint is in Shanghai aangekomen.   Deze week komen we alles te weten over deze bijzondere man.   In het boek `Met opa naar de Sint` neemt opa zijn kleinkinderen naar de intocht van Sinterklaas.  Maar opa is een beetje verstrooid waardoor ze te laat komen en slechts een glimp van Sinterklaas opvangen.   Gelukkig komt alles nog goed en  worden opa en de kinderen zelfs ingeschakeld om Sinterklaat te helpen met pakjes uitdelen!
