Just a quick housekeeping post 🙂
Winter is upon us, and while we may not be out in the snow we will be going out where possible through out the winter months. Fresh air and exercise are important to your child and we know you want to keep them warm and cozy when they are outside. Our uniform is practical and comfortable and when complete (with the normal winter additions) all our students will be toasty and happy.
The School Overcoat, Hat & Scarf are a great place to begin, and for most that’s definitely warm enough. Wellington boots, for those muddy puddles and a second pair of warm socks will keep Jack Frost from those toes. Gloves and if needed a navy beanie hat to be worn under the school hat should keep ears extra cozy.
Parents who have been with us last year are probably already aware of our class mailboxes. Each class group have mailboxes on the door, there is one for each child. Please continue to check these daily as your child may not notice mail waiting to go home. These are also useful if you wish to leave a note for another parent to arrange playdates and the like. Thursday is the day that children are chosen to bring a DVD to school, this is communicated via the mailbox too.
Another great addition to our school day are the Morning and Afternoon Activity displays that are in the lobby area of each campus.
Designed by our own Katie, these activity timetables let you know what your child has done and what is happening tomorrow so you can be ready.
The nursery school also communicate via large signs on our front door, if we are out and about we also have teachers phone numbers so you can join up with us if you are collecting your child.
Final School News: Daisy Duck is going on a holiday to the Nursery!
The senior class of the nursery will be undertaking a practical life project based on cleaning and laundry. Parents will be happy to know that we will be helping the children learn how to sort laundry, wash, dry and fold clothes. So now there will be no excuses for keeping their room in order! 🙂
We’d like to leave you with a smile, parents may have seen or heard of their child working with the pink tower. We spoke about it in an earlier post. Well once a child has mastered this work don’t be surprised to see them try to build any set of cubes into a tower.
Early one morning, already dressed in her ballet gear one of our nursery children was looking at a set of tissue boxes painted black for an art project.
She proceeded to take out a mat, unroll it, and attempt to stack them to form a tower! 🙂
The concentration and determination on her face as she was absorbed in her work. The teachers present for Breakfast club watched her work and had to capture the moment to share.
Great Work Jules! 🙂
Stay tuned for more general school news, especially as we are getting ready for the big anniversary school production of Peter Pan.
Untill then remember keep practicing “Never Smile at a Crocodile”
