Timetable

School Uniform

Whilst school uniform is not compulsory for Nursery lots of children choose to wear school uniform.

  • Sun hat
  • White polo shirt
  • Maroon sweatshirt
  • Jumper or cardigan
  • Joggers
  • Dark sensible shoes – Velcro only (no laces)
  • Wellington boots

If your child chooses to not wear uniform, they need suitable clothing for school and a change of clothes brought with them each day. Children play outside in all weathers so please ensure they have suitable coat and footwear.

Due to Covid-19 children need to come into school in a clean set of clothing each day.

All About Money!

Snack Time!

Throughout the week children will enjoy a range of healthy snacks including, brioche, crumpets, toast, yoghurt, biscuits cereal, milk and a piece of fruit. The charge for this is £1 per week.

Lunch Time!

If your child is staying in nursery all day, you can provide them with a packed lunch or school will offer them a free school meal. If they are leaving at 11:45 they will not be provided with a lunch for that day.

School Trips!

During the school year class outings are organised in connection with our ‘Topics’. You will then be asked to make ‘voluntary’ contributions towards their cost.

Charity Donations!

Throughout the year children are also encouraged to think of others and help by sometimes donating money for worthy causes such as Sports Relief, Red Nose day and other worthwhile local charities.

Other Information

Messy Play

Children will engage in lots of messy play activities, this is all part of their learning journey and they will go home very messy. Please can you provide a full set of spare clothes so we can change your child if needed. Ensure they have their names in.

Fine Motor

Each morning we will set our classroom up ready for your child to engage in a range of fine motor activities, this helps develop children’s writing skills and gets them ready to hold a pencil correctly.

P.E

Nursery will not be taught P.E by our P.E coach due to current Covid-19 regulations. Physical development will be incorporated into our daily activities and children will access outdoor areas during continuous provision to develop their gross motor skills.

Toileting

If your child is fully toilet trained, don’t worry if they have an odd accident from time to time. Sometimes they are engrossed in their play and leave it too late! Please provide your children with a full change of clothing so we can ensure they are clean and dry throughout the day.

If you are currently toilet training your child, we can work closely with you and encourage them to use the big toilet at school.

Homework

We encourage all children to read at home with their families. At the beginning of each week children will be able to take a story book home to share at home over the week.
