Welcome to the Woodhurst Nursery class page,
New parents September 2020, please find a link to a short video clip to share with your child about starting Nursery.
Dear Parents and carers
Welcome to Warfield Nursery and our website.
Woodhurst Nursery staff are Miss E Dick class Teacher, Mrs S Crispin Nursery Assistant, Mrs S Main Nursery Assistant, Miss C Thomas apprentice and Mrs S Thomson Lunch cover.
Here you will find key information about our learning for this term and other useful information. As we are still working under Government guidelines due to the COVID 19 pandemic we are sorry but parents are limited within the Nursery building. We ask you to say goodbye your child at the door and staff will support your child putting things on their peg. This is an essential independent skill for your child, it is just happening much earlier than we would like. As children enter Nursery they will wash their hands and at regular points during the day. We do ask if you can limit the things children bring. They may leave their bag with “spare clothes “on their own peg for the week. Please write your child’s name on the labels on all children’s clothing especially coats and jumpers.
All children should have a named drinks bottle and named lunch box. We politely ask that no nuts or eggs are included in their lunch boxes due to allergies.
Please provide a sunhat when it is hot and waterproof shoes and a waterproof coat for wet weather. If you have some wellington boots at home do please send these to Nursery too. We always try to have some time outside during the weather despite the weather as outside learning is such an important part of our curriculum.
Our Learning this term is the topic All About Me. We have attached the document to give you more details about what your child will be learning with us at Nursery and how you can support your child at home. We will also be spending a lot of time settling the children this term as it is a very new experience for them and many children have not been away from parents before.
As we are a school Nursery we start the children learning phonics, Phase 1 and then progressing to Phase 2. We also introduce Early Number and counting to the children. Please do ask if you have any questions about these two important areas and how you can support at home. For example, going on a sound walk or a letter hunt for phonics and counting the stairs or knives and forks at tea time.
We are so looking forward to getting to know your children and our new families this term. If you have any queries / questions, please do not hesitate to ask one of the Nursery team and we will try our best to answer them for you.
Miss E Dick
Woodhurst Nursery Teacher
