This week our story book is the traditional tale "The Gingerbread Man". This tale is easy to act out and retell and we are encouraging the children to especially remember the repeated text "Run, run, as fast as you can, you can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!"
This week we will be making gingerbread men with the children. Please ask them about how it tastes as the recipe does include the spice 'ginger'!
We have two classes in Nursery:
Elephants AM & Owls AM
Our teachers are:
All working together to help the children to achieve their full potential and to make good progress.

If you have any questions or concerns that you would like to discuss with us then please do speak to any member of the Nursery team at the end of session time when you pick your child up, we are more than happy to meet with you to discuss any issues.
It is essential that children have appropriate clothing and footwear when coming to Nursery. We have fantastic provision which includes lots of opportunities for children to explore and learn. This means that often children's clothing will suffer because of their messy play experiences. All the materials we use are natural and will usually wash out of clothing.
During the first two weeks, you and your child will be visited at home by your child's teacher and Early Years Practitioner. This allows the children an opportunity to meet their key worker in a safe and familiar environment. It is also an opportunity for parents to chat to the staff about your child, including their previous childcare experiences, their general development, their interests and share other relevant information or concerns you have about them starting Nursery. Any information shared during this session helps staff to plan for your child's first day and ensures the move into Nursery is as smooth as possible.
