Nursery New Starters September 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to welcome you and your family to Bishop King Nursery. I am really looking forward to teaching your child during the following year and meeting you in the near future.

Starting in Nursery is an exciting but challenging time for all children. Before your child starts with us it is vital that we find out a bit about them so we can ensure they feel happy, safe and secure really quickly.

In previous years we would complete home visits. However, due to the current global situation we are going to complete doorstep or garden visits this year. These will consist of us coming to your house and having a short meeting with you and your child. Your meeting will be between 12.30 and 3pm on Monday 6th September 2021

During this meeting we will discuss starting dates and which sessions you would like your child to attend. We offer morning, afternoon and, when your child is settled, all-day sessions, which are funded through your 30 hours code. The times of these sessions will be confirmed nearer the time.

We work together at Bishop King School to ensure that starting Nursery is a successful experience for all pupils. We therefore support your child to settle into the daily routine by having staggered starting dates and times; this will be discussed at the meeting.

Along with this letter you will have received some forms to complete. Please can you complete these before the meeting so that we can discuss any questions.

Both this letter and the questionnaire are on the website under the Early Years admissions tab in a format that can be translated.

Finally, if you haven’t already done so, could you ensure that you also bring your child’s birth certificate for the office to check before your meeting date.

I look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Brown

Hunting For Mini-beasts

This term the children in Nursery have been learning about Mini-beasts.

They have enjoyed hunting for minibeasts in the the Nursery garden and in the school woodland area. They researched the mini-beasts they found using books and the ipad and were fascinated by the fact they found out.

The teachers learnt new facts too, such as that some ladybirds have stripes not spots.They played mini-beast games and enjoyed activities based on 'the Hungry Caterpillar'. 

By the end of term all children were able to retell the story using the props.

Chinese New Year 2020

The children have really enjoyed learning about Chinese New Year. They had a go at using chopsticks in the role play, dressed in traditional Chinese clothes, learnt about the importance of the colour red and made marks that represent Chinese writing. The highlight for them was watching dragon dances on the interactive white board. They then used beaters to make the drums sounds they had heard and scarves to create their own dragon dances.
