Autumn 1

Week Beginning 17.9.18

This week we have continued to meet lots more of our new nursery friends and have welcomed them into our Eagley family. We have had lots of fun meeting everyone and we hope you have too!


We have had lots of circle times this week where we have sang songs and learned each others names. This has helped the children to get to know each other and it has been lovely to watch new friendships grow and develop. The children have loved exploring our nursery and learning through their play. We are very proud of every single child and how well they have settled in and adjusted to nursery routines. Well done everyone!


This week we have done some amazing counting as we have been counting how many name cards are on the tens grids every day. This is a lovely way to develop our counting skills and the children are trying so hard!


We are still practising to get our own coats and pants on in order to explore outside! At home we would love you to encourage your child to become independent when getting dressed, putting their own pants, shoes and coats on independently. 


If you would like any guidance on how to toilet train your child. There is some excellent guidance on the NHS website, you can access this on the link below.


Thank you for all your support during these exciting first few weeks of school.

Week Beginning 10.9.18

Wow! What a busy and exciting week we have had in nursery. We have met lots and lots of our gorgeous new nursery friends and we have had a lot of fun! We would like to take this time to welcome you to the Eagley family as this is a very exciting time for both you and your child.


This week we have been busy getting to know each other, playing, and most of all, having fun! We have also started painting pictures of ourselves, looking in a mirror and thinking about the features on our faces, it has been lots of fun. Our paintings will be displayed in nursery as your child completes their painting. You are welcome to have a look when you drop off/pick up your child.


The children have been fantastic at choosing what they want for their lunch, carrying their trays and using their cutlery to eat it all. Well done everyone!


As we go outside lots as part of our learning in nursery, we often wear our waterproof suit pants and coats. The children have tried really hard this week getting themselves ready and we are really impressed. To help your child with this experience, you could practice putting pants, coats and shoes on at home, encouraging your child to become as independent as possible. 


Next week we look forward to welcoming the rest of our new nursery friends to play with us and we hope they have lots of fun too! Below are some pictures of our fun this week. Have a fabulous weekend and we will see you  next week!

Week Beginning 3.9.18

This week we have loved meeting all of our new nursery friends and their super parents and carers! We have had lots of fun playing in the nursery during our stay and play sessions and it has been lovely to meet you all. 


Over the next two weeks, each child has their own individual start date and start time. This is to help us ensure that every child is settled on their first day and make this exciting transition as smooth as possible. We understand that bringing your child to a new nursery can be a little bit daunting for both yourself and your child. We want to assure you that we will look after your precious children and will do all that we can to make the transition as easy as possible. 


Coming to Nursery is an exciting time and whilst your child is here they will do lots of outdoor learning! With this in mind, please can I remind you that your child should bring a pair of wellies to nursery with their name inside on their first day. These wellies will then stay in nursery to be used throughout the year. Nursery provide outdoor waterproof pants and jackets.


Being at nursery is thirsty work and it is important for your child to stay hydrated. Please bring a water bottle for your child each day. They can keep this on our shelf to drink as and when they please. 


Thank you for all of your support already during this exciting new year! I am confident we will have lots of fun.


Miss Holdsworth, Miss Bowker and all the nursery team!
