April – May 2017

Final Term

For some children, this is their final term of Nursery. Please look out for dates for transition events with school – exciting times!

Mr Melville has had a baby!

We are delighted to inform you that Mr Melville’s wife gave birth to a bouncing baby boy named William. Mother, Baby (and Father!) are doing well.

What we’ve been doing and what we’re getting up to?

Last term we were busy learning about our calender topics of Spring and Easter. We have been observing and recording signs of Spring and we are noticing that many more Minibeasts are visiting our Bug Hotel! Our child led theme was the very popular Space theme which led to many science and drama opportunities. We also helped to create our Golden Rules and to experience Our Emotions which we shall carry on into this new term.

We begin this new term continuing our calender topic of Spring – fortunately the weather has been suitably obliging! We are creating more opportunities for the children to visit and engage in their local community, starting with our trip to Figgate Park.

We also look forward to having Pam Day, a PGDE Dance sudent who will be providing dance experiences for the children and staff. Keep dancing!
We will also be participating in the whole school theme of Health Week in June. Mrs Evans has already planned some exciting events for the nursery.

Along with developing our child led themes, we also look forward to thinking about school. We will be visiting the school often in preparation for P1.

Busy busy as always!

Our Learning Journals are up and running

We have launched our new way of tracking and sharing your child’s learning through Learning Journals. Learning Journals are online and will replace the paper Personal Learning Plans. We invite you to come into nursery to see the journals and floorbooks in action and to get your feedback as to how the journals are working for you at home.

We Are Online     

Our school website is proving to be very popular. To see some of the things that nursery (and school) are doing please visit…
www.royalhigh-pri.org…then double click…CLASS BLOG…scroll and enjoy!

Your Voice Counts! 

We are always interested to hear what parents and carers think and do take on board the feedback you give us. If you have a good idea that would help us further improve any aspect of nursery life then please add your comment using the post it and board provided.

RHPS Nursery Needs You! 

Do you have a skill, talent or interest that you would like to share with our nursery children? We are looking for parents to come into nursery on a regular or ad hoc basis to share their special knowledge and love of learning with us. We would love to hear from you if you have some time to spare. Please speak to Miss Watt for more info.

Nursery Business  

Please remember that snack money is due for this term. There are approximately 10 weeks in this term, therefore snack will cost £25. As this is a long term this amount can be paid in instalments – please see Miss Marr for details. It is very helpful if snack money is brought in a named envelope.

So that we may explore the outdoors fully, please ensure that your child has weather appropriate clothing and footwear.

Should your child be unwell, please contact the nursery as soon as possible. A reminder that NHS recommendation to nurseries advises that in order to decrease the rate of infection to other children and staff, please allow 48 hours at home after the last bout of vomiting or diarrhoea.

Dates for the Diary

May Day Holiday – Mon 1st May
In Service Day – Thurs 4th May
Victoria Day Holiday – Mon 22nd May

As this is a long and busy term, I will issue a June newsletter also which will include dates for transition days, sports day, summer trip (to East Links Farm), leaving celebration etc. In the meantime, please remember to check the nursery reception whiteboard for up-to-date nursery news.

Many thanks for your support

At RHPS Nursery we have an open door policy. If you have any issues, concerns or feedback, please do not hesitate to come in for a quick chat or to make an appointment to discuss an issue further. We especially like to hear of achievements outside of nursery too!

Miss Watt, Miss Hamill, Miss Marr, Mr Melville, Miss Lonie…
And may I extend a special thank you to Miss Carter who has provided our nursery with consistent supply cover. We hope to see her again very soon.
