Dear Parents and Carers,
What a wonderful time to be working with children! There is great excitement in the air!
You are in for a few surprises when you go onto Google Classroom this week. We filmed children every day this week, across the four zones, to ensure that all children in attendance were included. Unlike previous years where we rehearsed daily from the last week in November for our Nativity Concert, this year we managed to capture the children as they naturally performed. There are yawns, wiggling, shouts, scratching, dancing, stretching, shirt lifting and no actions from some and that is absolutely to be expected from 3 and 4 year olds! We really hope that the videos bring some much needed joy and smiles to you and your family.
Please remember that Google Classroom is a secure environment and only the children and parents/carers from your child’s zone will have access to it. As such, these films must not be copied onto any social media platform please.
On Tuesday 15th December we will unveil our festive windows in the Acorn Building on Linn Park Avenue as part of the Living Advent trail around the local community. More details can be found by clicking: http://www.netherleelivingadvent.co.uk/
We really hope that your child takes the time to share their ‘Special Book’ at home with you. The children take great pride in their Special Books and as you can imagine the staff put a lot of work into making sure that they reflect your child’s progressive learning story. We ask that you return ‘Special Books’ during next week.
Next week we will celebrate ‘Party Week’ by playing lots of fun games such as ‘Pass the Parcel’, ‘Statues’, ‘Christmas Corners’ and ‘Hokey Cokey’. We will have one of the following party snacks every day: a Party Ring, a Jammie Dodger, a chocolate coin, a few cheesy puffs or Skips all accompanied by diluting juice. We invite children to wear their party clothes on any of their days attending next week.
We would like to remind you that we are open from 8am-6pm on Friday 18th December. Should you wish to collect your child earlier than normal, as you are collecting siblings from school, please just let us know at drop off time.
On behalf of all staff of Netherlee Nursery Class we would like to wish all families who celebrate Christmas a very Merry Christmas and we hope that all families have a lovely holiday period. Enjoy spending time safely with your family over the festive period and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to nursery on Tuesday 5th January 2021.
Have a lovely weekend,
Mrs Donaldson and Mrs Kerr
