Welcome to the Summer Term from all the team. We look forward to continuing our partnership with you this term.
Our play and learning will be linked to the children’s interests with a special focus on Growing and Changes. This will include a visit to the farm. We will also be talking to the children about their transition from Nursery to Reception. Later in the term the children will have the opportunity to spend some time in the Reception classes.
We will also send a report to parents this term to show your child’s progress and to talk about their learning before they go to Reception or meet with you if your child is staying in Nursery next year.
