It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas……
The Christmas play is fast approaching and rehearsals are well underway. You have probably heard your little ones singing christmas songs so please do encourage them to keep practising at home. Due to space restrictions, we will have to limit the numbers to a maximum of 3 people per child.
Last week, we requested that some children bring in certain items of clothing for their costumes. Please do start to bring them in this week as we begin out full dress rehearsals.
I am disappointed to say that we still have had no santa! It will be a shame for the children to miss out on meeting Santa at the nursery so please do have a think about whether you would like to volunteer to be Santa this year, and let us know at the earliest (if only so we can make sure we get an outfit that fits
Some of you may have seen the changes to Sunshine room. After tracking the children’s interests and looking into the benefits of Construction Play in the early years, we have turned Sunshine into a construction room. The children are able to choose from a vast range of resources including lego, marble runs, work benches, connect-a-straw and much more. It is amazing to watch them build a car out of cardboard boxes and a castle out of blocks. And, not to mention the learning as they talk about different sizes, heights and so much more.
With all of this, it is only fitting that the name of the room reflects its purposes. As of 1st December, it will officially be called Diggers Room.
You will also start to see changes to our outdoor area as we think of ways to improve the outdoor experience. We have introduced some balancing materials in the form of tyres and stepping stones and Tobi’s dad has grand plans for a mud kitchen. If you have any resources at home that you think will be useful, please do bring them in.
Every once in awhile, we ask you to bring in family pictures which we send back home. This time we want one that we can keep – as we develop our home corner.
As of 1st December, you will get an email confirmation within 48 hours of any late fees incurred.
