Welcome back for the Autumn Term.  We hope you had a great summer break.

Learning Journals
Your child’s learning journal is kept in their drawer for you to look at whenever you want to. Approximately every 6 weeks or so, we will ask you to fill out part of their next step plan. This will only take about 5 minutes at the beginning or end of a session and will give us valuable information about how you feel they are getting on, what they like to do at home and what you would like us to work on with them. If you have any queries about this please do not hesitate to talk to your child’s keyworker.

Fundraising
At the end of last term we had our summer BBQ and raised a fantastic £800 so thank you to all who helped and attended.

Purchases
To help to organise the garden area we have purchased another wooden storage shed and replaced the broken plastic storage box.

Nursery News
I have been asked by the school to remind parents, for the safety of your child, to please not park in the school car park and to close all gates when entering and leaving the school ground.

They have also asked me to remind parents that children are not permitted to ride their bikes or scooters within the school grounds or to play with any equipment left outside the classrooms.

Many thanks for your co-operation with these matters.

Water Bottles
If your child brings in their own drink for snack time, can you please make sure that it is labelled with their name to save confusion when trying to give them out.
