Miss K McIntosh – Nursery Class Teacher
Mrs P Hodgson – Nursery Teaching Assistant
For those of you who are returning for your second year in Nursery, welcome back! We’ve really missed you!
For the children who are new to Westvale, welcome to our wonderful school. We are delighted to have you as part of our Westvale family.
I hope you had a fantastic summer break. I’m looking forward to getting to know you all again and all of the exciting experiences we are going to have together.
Our topic this half term is “I am Amazing!” Children will be settling in and telling us all about themselves and their families. We will work hard to ensure your child feels safe and secure to enable them to foster a love of learning and thrive.
Check out the curriculum overview below to see what exciting things we have planned this year. The autumn 1 overview goes into more depth about what outcomes we will be helping your child achieve by October half term.
Some things to help you:
- Nursery begins at 8.30am and finishes at 11.30am
- We ask for a snack contribution of £1 per week per child payable every Monday morning.
- Following our risk assessment, please do not enter the school grounds unless invited by prior appointment.
- Please ensure your child has a bag (labelled) with a change of clothes in to keep in school. If unsoiled, this will be returned to you on the last day before half term.
- Please send your child into school with their own clearly labelled water bottle, school do not provide or sell water bottles.
- Please ensure coats, hats, scarves and cardigans or jumpers are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
- Book bags will be given out every Friday to be returned on Monday. Please enjoy the book with your child and comment on their engagement and things they have said about the story in their reading record.
- You will have access to the online learning platform SeeSaw which will be used as a home / school link and to view some of your child’s learning whilst in school (Please bear with me while I make sure everyone is registered).
- We have a limited number of Nursery places available. If you know of anyone requiring a place for their child, please ask them to contact the office ASAP.
