What a lovely first week back we’ve all had, the warm sunny weather has certainly taken us all a bit by surprise and we have loved being able to get outdoors.
We’re sure you will have noticed the beautiful spring bulbs in full bloom in, or near, both nursery buildings. These were planted in Autumn by members of the PTA and we are so grateful for the time parents commit to making our school and nursery environment more welcoming. Children in Acorns were also delighted with the playground painting which took place during the holidays- thanks PTA! We have really benefited from having the cycle track repainted as children are learning to follow the arrow directions and hopefully this will help us avoid having any car, scooter or bike collisions!
We would like to remind you that, as the weather gets warmer and the sun becomes stronger, your child should be protected by wearing a hat and high factor sunscreen when they come to nursery. If you haven’t done so already, please supply a bottle of high factor sunscreen, labelled with your child’s name and the cream will be re-applied after lunch or as and when required. Please hand sunscreen bottles in at drop off time, please don’t keep this in children’s bags, as we will store sunscreen in a safe place out of reach of our children. Due to health and safety requirements, we are unable to keep any spare bottles of sun cream in nursery to apply to a child who hasn’t had any handed in from home- this is to avoid any allergies or reactions of any kind however, if you require any help or would like to discuss this with us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will be happy to help.
This is a really fun, but busy, term where staff are getting transition information ready for those leaving in June and collating photos and gathering comments and drawings to ensure that Special Books are ready for sharing during week beginning 17th May. Children are so proud of their own Special Books which reflect snapshots of play experiences they have engaged in or moments they are especially proud of. Staff are also constantly reflecting on children’s learning and will include these observation comments in the Summative Reports for all the children who are leaving to go to school in June.
The next Netherlee Parent Council meeting will take place on Wednesday 12th May at 7pm. Please click here to access the Parent Council section of our website for more information.
Enjoy the sunshine over the weekend and please continue to get in touch with us at any time if you or your child needs anything or even if you would just like a quick chat or catch up.
