As the temperature drops, please can we ask that you label all of your child's clothing with their name including gloves, scarves, hats etc. We understand that this is an extra effort on your part but it makes life so much easier and reduces the chances of losing things. Many thanks, Miss Arnold and Mrs Deocades.
Advent retreat with Onelife Music
Nursery spent a wonderful day with Dan and Emily from Onelife Music on an Advent retreat. We thought all about our journey to Christmas through Advent and how God has given us this special time to get ready to welcome Jesus. We learnt some great new songs, made a human Advent wreath and made Advent promises. The children behaved so beautifully that Dan and Emily couldn't believe they were only in Nursery.

- PE - A Christmas treasure hunt with Miss Neville!
After reading "Stickman" by Julia Donaldson, we made our own stick people!
The star of the week this week is ... Jenilia!
Jenilia is our star this week because she joins in with all of the stories we read in Nursery so enthusiastically. She listens really well and tried hard to make good choices. She is becoming very independent and we are very proud of her.
Our class wish - To try our best and be kind to others.
Over the year, we will be encouraging the children to work hard to make our class wish come true. In prayer and reflection assemblies, each class will chose a child who has worked towards their class wish so we can celebrate their achievements as a whole school community.
Our first ever class wish child was Isabella. Well done Isabella! She is always kind to others, has beautiful manners and is keen and ready to learn. Keep it up!
If you were unable to attend your parent consultation please see Miss Arnold to arrange an appointment at a convenient time.
Previous Stars of the week

Jacob - For being so kind and always trying his best.
Our stars for Autumn 2:
Ayah - For always making such good choices.
Karolina - For settling in so well.
Ciara-Lily - For being so polite and increasing in confidence.
Over the past two weeks, the children have been learning all about the story Dear Zoo. They loved learning about all of the different animals that arrived in the post and were able to retell the story fantastically! They enjoyed playing with the small world zoo, painting zoo animals and writing their own letters to the zoo.
Some of our wonderful work on "Dear Zoo"
Macmillan Coffee Morning - This Friday (28th September)
On Friday, the whole school will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support through the World's Biggest Coffee Morning. This is an amazing charity that helps millions of people who are suffering with cancer, along with giving much needed support to their families.
We will be holding a cake sale for the children on the day and the children are allowed to wear their own clothes with a "green" theme to help raise money on the day.
What can you do to help?
1. Bring in cakes on Thursday.
2. Wear green - wear green on Friday and bring £1 to help our fundraising.
3. Bring in 50p on Friday to buy a cake at the MacMillan Cake Sale.
This week in Nursery
This week the children will be staying until 2pm. Please make sure they have a pair of black PE pumps in school for their PE lesson on a Tuesday. Also if you have not sent back the permission form regarding Tapestry we ask that you do so as soon as possible.
A few notes for parents:
- Please send your child with a bag containing spare clothes (including shoes) and baby wipes in case they have an accident. However, please note that we expect children to be toilet trained when they start nursery. Please do not send children in nappies or pull-ups as we do not have facilities for changing children.
- Please make sure your child's name is in all of their clothing and on any bags you send in. This will make home time far easier and save lots of worry.
