Thursday 1st December



Dear Parents


It has been yet another busy week in Klee Class. This week we have been painting with worms (spaghetti), hunting for very realistic (!) worms in fake mud, dancing and painting along to some classical music and wrapping up warm to experience the frosty outside!


We have also been enjoying our new role-play Space Station. The children experienced alien attacks, landing on Mars and enjoyed pretending to be astronauts and drawing underneath the table.


We have also been exploring the different sounds instruments make and matching these to the different parts of ‘We are Going on a Bear Hunt’. Some of the children then acted out the story in small groups.


Thank you for your donations of junk for our making table. If you have any of the following they would be gratefully received.

  • Big cardboard boxes for our ‘Whatever You Want Area’.
  • Stones, pebbles and sticks for outside.

Thanks in advance.


As we are fast approaching Christmas, please see the information below about events in the next few weeks.




Christmas Performance

This year’s Christmas performance ‘Ralph the Reindeer’ will take place in the school hall on Tuesday 13th December at 9.30am. We will be singing a song at the beginning of the performance and then returning to the Nursery.


Nursery will be Elves and will need plain long sleeved green or red tops and bottoms or an elf costume if it is easier. Please ensure your child comes to Nursery at 9.05am dressed in their costume. They can remain as Elves for the session or can change after the performance when we are back in Nursery.


If your child attends the afternoon sessions or is an ‘Option B’ and does not normally come to Nursery on a Tuesday morning they can still be part of the performance if they wish. Please bring them in, dressed as an elf, on Tuesday morning at 9.05am. You will then be able to collect them from the Nursery after the performance. Please let us know if your child would like to be part of the performance but does not normally attend on Tuesday mornings so we have an idea of numbers.


Mrs Marvel

As part of our Christmas celebrations we will be having a magical visit from Mrs Marvel on the morning of Wednesday 14th December, followed by our Christmas party. We are asking for a contribution of £3 for the magic show. The HSA are kindly donating the balance. Please bring the £3 to Nursery in an envelope with your childs’ name and hand it to either Sally or Felicity.


If your child normally attends Nursery on a Wednesday afternoon you can swap your child’s session for the morning for this week. Please let us know if you would like to do so.


We will put a sign up sheet for party food donations at the beginning of next week. Thank you in advance.


End of Term

A reminder that Nursery will break up for the Christmas period on Wednesday 21st December at 1.30pm so there will be no afternoon Nursery on this date.


Thank you

Felicity and Sally
