Nursery Newsletter August 2018

Welcome back to nursery everyone, we hope you had a safe and happy summer break. A special welcome to the new boys and girls joining both the Carlton Hill and Castle Hill classes. We know everyone will join us welcoming them and helping them to settle in.

This month we will be focusing on learning the routines and following rules as well as developing our independence. Children will be encouraged to select resources that they wish to use and to put them away when they are finished. You may notice more natural resources in the nursery rooms, these have been put out for children to explore and experiment with and we hope they will develop their curiosity and inquiry skills.

Please remember all children need to change their shoes before they come into the playrooms, these should be shoes that are sturdy and that you are happy for them to get messy. Children should keep a change of clothes in a bag on their peg in the cloakroom.

Snack money should be paid through PARENTPAY please speak to a member of staff in nursery or at the school office if you have any difficulty paying this or accessing the system.

Finally, an additional hello from me, Helen Peoples, I have been appointed as the new Principal Teacher here at Royal Mile Primary School and look forward to working with all the families and children as well as the fantastic Early Years Team.
