In the mornings, classroom doors will open at 8.45am for children to arrive, and then close at 9.00am.

In the afternoons, doors will open at 3.15pm for home time.

We ask that you provide your child with a water bottle and make sure they bring it into school everyday. As we are a healthy school, only water is allowed.

Please provide your child with a change of clothes that they can bring into school and leave on their peg. These don’t have to be school uniform.

Please also make sure that your child’s name is on all items of clothing so they don’t get lost!

Children will also be developing fine motor skills with mark-making activities to build muscles and control when using a pencil. We will work on these skills through dough disco, paint brushes, chalk, tweezers, and a variety of pencil control activities.


It is really important that your child has the correct pencil grip for writing. Share this short video with your child to practise holding a pencil correctly. Encourage them to use their pinchy parrot fingers!

Our Topic for this half-term is Minibeasts and Gardening.

We will be discuss Lent and how this is a special time for to reflect. We will then learn the Easter Story and think about all the special ways we celebrate this in our communitu. 


Healthy Teeth

At Christ the King, we want to promote the importance of good oral hygiene. In Nursery, we daily brush our teeth after lunch using the 'Brush Bus' and regularly talk about the importance of taking care of our teeth. Additionally, in our topic this half term, we will be learning about dentists and dental nurses and how they help us. 

 

We would appreciate it if you could share this video with your child and talk about the importance of brushing your teeth in the morning and at night. You can also discuss how different foods and drinks can be good or bad for your teeth. With this in mind, please ensure your child only brings water and healthy snacks to school.
