Nursery - Toucan Class


Winter Time.

It is lovely to take this opportunity to welcome everyone into Toucan Class Nursery for the 2017/2018 academic year. Our main aim this half term in the lead up to Christmas is to continue to settle our Toucans into their routines having lots of fun in the process! We welcome your support to enable your child to become independent and confident in our setting. We will be providing a wide breadth of wonderful experiences to fully support the Foundation Curriculum. Our emphasis is upon excellence and enjoyment and learning through play with our focus being on child-led learning.

 Week 7:

We have enjoyed a lovely Christmas themed week in Nursery.... as we have continued taking turns to open a door on our Advent Calendar as we count the days down to Christmas Day! Our classroom has been a hive of activity as we created our festive party hats in readiness for Toucan Christmas Party.

We enjoyed a truly magical time at our party, wearing our party hats with pride as we played with the balloons and danced along to the Christmas music and took part in Christmas Corners, Pass The Parcel and Musical Bumps! We then enjoyed singing Christmas songs together using our props of headdresses and musical percussion when we were surprisingly interrupted by our very special visitor...Father Christmas!! He had parked his reindeer at Leeds/Bradford airport and came to join us at our party bringing a special gift of a book for each of the children kindly donated by our FOWE PTA. We wished Santa well singing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" before he needed to leave... the count-down to Christmas is his busiest time! Then, it was time for our Festive Feast. Thank you for all your wonderful contributions, they went down a treat! We appreciate all your fantastic support to make our party such a success.

Polite Request: Only one card please from each child to be given to the class. We ask that your child makes or purchases a card of their choosing and helps to write it, including signing their name to post in our post-box (situated on our Question Table) to all their friends in Toucans. The children will take turns to collect the post and their cards will be opened and shared at carpet time, giving thanks to the sender and then displayed for us all to enjoy.

 We break up for Christmas on Friday 15th December(on this day we ask that your child wears a Christmas themed jumper, paying a pound to charity) at 3.15pm for two weeks, returning Wednesday 3rd January 2018!!

The Nursery Team would like to thank all our lovely families for your support across the term and would like to wish all our Toucan Families "A Very Happy Christmas & a Festive New Year!"


Polite Reminder: Tuesday 2nd January is a Training Day; School & Nursery is closed to children.
