WEEKLY Update Parents Nov 14th 18th.

Big thanks to Charlotte’s mum Alex for coming in to run an art session in big room, and to Iola’s Uncle for coming in to talk to big room about submarines ( as he works on one). Ash’s mum has offered to come in, in December to ice some gingerbread. If you want to come in to read, garden, draw, craft, dance with the children let us know.
Our show and tell sessions in the big room are very useful for building on children confidence in speaking, and in listening , responding and understanding. Do encourage them to bring in an article, toys or picture relating to a visit into nursery so they c an tell us about it. Please, no VIOLENT toys.
PLEASE also update us by e-mail or via IConnect about what your child has been doing at home. This really helps inform our planning for activities and to reflect the children’s own interests. Many thanks to those of you who already do this.
