Nursery Rhyme Week

World Nursery Rhyme Week is fast approaching and we are delighted to confirm that our EYFS classes will be taking part. The initiative, which was launched in 2013, promotes the importance of nursery rhymes in early childhood development and education with a particular focus on how nursery rhymes boost early language and literacy skills.

We will be taking part in the worldwide ‘Rhyme A Day Challenge’ and have a number of fantastic learning activities planned throughout the week based upon the following rhymes:

  • Monday 16th November: ‘The Wheels On The Bus’.
  • Tuesday 17th November: ‘Five Little Speckled Frogs’.
  • Wednesday 18th November: ‘Hickory Dickory Dock’.
  • Thursday 19th November: ‘Old MacDonald Had A Farm’.
  • Friday 20th November: ‘Miss Polly Had A Dolly’.

Reciting nursery rhymes is a wonderful activity you can enjoy doing together at home and all of the resources are available for you to download. You can access all of the free resources at: www.worldnurseryrhymeweek.com

You don’t have to be young to say a nursery rhyme – how many of the above do you remember?

CHRISTMAS PARTIES AND ACTIVITIES

A letter went out on EDULINK this morning regarding the party day and the Christmas activities in December which includes Elf Day, Christmas Hat photo shoot, virtual Christmas panto, Christmas quiz, craft days just to name a few.  There will be lots of surprises along the way and we will be trying to make December extra special this year for the children.  We are asking for a donation of £3 towards the cost of the above and this includes party day.  We would prefer you pay via ParentPay but we will accept cash as long as it is in an envelope with your child’s name and class on and marked CHRISTMAS .

Don’t forget to let us know if you want your child to receive a letter from Father Christmas in December , you can let him know by completing the form on EDULINK via the LINKS and FORMS button.

FLU IMMUNISATION PROGRAMME – Tuesday 24th November 2020

FLU IMMUNISATION PROGRAMME – Tuesday 24th November 2020

If your child is in Reception – Year 6 and you have completed the form for him or her to have the nasal flu vaccination, the Immunisation team will be in school on Tuesday 24th November 2020 to see your child.  If you have not completed the form for your child to have the vaccination, then your child will NOT be included in the programme.

Please be aware if you have completed the form but your child has since had the vaccine at their Doctors, or you have changed your mind, as the Immunisation team have your form and permission, you will need to contact them directly to amend on 01744 624353.  The school does not have a record of your returned form.

The immunisation team are extremely busy and as you can appreciate due to the COVID 19 restrictions it has been more time consuming and more difficult organising the immunisations within school.  The team need to visit every school, the above date is allocated by the team.

If your child is absent on the day, for example you child’s class could be isolating you will need to contact your doctor to arrange immunisation.  On the immunisation day, I will send some information out to any classes isolating regarding drop in sessions the Immunisation team will be organising in December, but your first point of call should be your child’s doctor, as you may have to travel to the drop in session and they are limited times.  The drop in sessions are NOT in school.
