This Months Topic:

    This month’s topic is ‘All About Me’. We will be doing lots of fun things including

    turning the home corner into a Clinic, playing a guessing game with Guess the Baby and we will be doing self portraits and talking lots about ourselves and our homes.

    Our colours this month will be Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. Our shapes will be Circle, Square, Triangle and Rectangle.

These will all have specific weeks so keep an eye on the planning board to see when

    they are being covered.

     Book of Interest: We will be looking at lots of different books this month including The Alfie Stories and The Little Princess Stories. We will also look at books telling us all about our bodies and developing our senses.

For our storybooks we will be doing a small display for each book showing key

    features from each story.

Special Notices:

Security Notice

     Please remember to sign your child in and out of the nursery.

Please ensure that if you are in the habit of putting the catch on the door as you leave, make sure you release it before you close the door. On a number of occasions over the last few weeks it has been left on and this could be a security risk.

     Anyone could gain entry to the nursery and the children who can reach the lower

    handle could try to get out.


     ST Funding starts Monday 1September 2008 and will run for 14 weeks. If you haven’t

    received a letter detailing funding amounts please come and see me.


     Please ensure that your child’s music fees are paid up by the end of each month so

    that I can pass these on to the music company. Fees remain the same at ?3.50 per week. They can either be paid on a weekly basis or I can add them to your invoice Happy Halloween! and you can pay in full each month, please let me know which you would prefer.

Miss Mai Ling who did our music sessions last year is no longer running our

    sessions. She has passed her sessions with us over to a young man called Daniel.

    Daniel is fully CRB checked and has all the relevant Police checks in place.

If you have any questions regarding music sessions, please do not hesitate to come

    and see me.
