Nursery - Pixies

Autumn Term 2021

Hello and Welcome to Pixie Class!

We have places available for children born between 01.09.17-31.08.18. Please email us on nurseryadmin@bmatcooksspinney.org.uk or call  01279 437590 for more information.

Our sessions are as follows:

AM: 8:30-11:30

PM: 12:30-3:30

We are very excited to welcome all of our new starters to Pixie class!

This half term our focus will be on ensuring the children are settled in and beginning to form relationships within the class. We have many exciting things planned, beginning with our topic of ‘All about Me.’ Within this topic, we will be focusing on building relationships and developing an understanding of the classroom routine and boundaries. We will be learning all about each other, looking at what makes us different, exploring our emotions and learning about our families. As we move on through the term, we will begin to focus our topics and learning around the children’s interests.

Library Books

Once a week your child will have the opportunity to select a library book to take home and read. These books will be changed every Friday.

Clothing

Please ensure that your child has appropriate outdoor clothing for the weather. Nursery use the outdoor area in all weathers, therefore please ensure your child has a waterproof coat. We have welly boots available for the children to wear in the wet weather.

Please ensure that your child has a spare change of clothes at nursery, including underwear and socks. All items of clothing should be named.

P.E

Nursery children do not participate in P.E lessons until the Summer term. Therefore, your child does not need a P.E just yet.

Tapestry

At Cooks Spinney we use an online learning journal called Tapestry, through the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). On it, we record observations, comments and photos to show your child’s progress throughout their time in our EYFS, this complements the other forms of observing and assessing that take place.

With Tapestry, you are able to access your child’s learning journal from a computer or mobile device at any time. Email notifications are sent out to inform you when new observations have been added. This will allow you to keep up to date with your child’s progress, and see what they are doing at school. We also encourage you to share evidence from home to contribute to your child’s journal.

You can view your child’s learning journal via https://tapestryjournal.com  or by downloading the ‘Tapestry’ App on mobile devices.

If you have any questions, please come and speak to a member of the Nursery team.
