This week we will be learning all about Harvest. We will be doing lots of art work including painting with wellies and fruit and vegetables. On Friday for the first half an hour of each session we would like to invite you in to look at our Harvest artwork and look at your child’s learning journey. Please continue to bring in non-perishable food donations for the ‘AylesburyVineyard charity’. Please can you leave all water bottles at home-the children have access to milk and water throughout the whole session, thank you.

Literacy and Numeracy

We will be singing songs about Harvest and reading lots of stories all about food. We will also be making towers which are taller and shorter than each other out of big blocks and crates.


On Friday this week the Nursery children will be doing PE, please can they come into school dressed in their normal school uniform and trainers. We will be encouraging Pre-School children to join in our PE session so if they have trainers, they are welcome to wear them on Fridays as well.

Show and Tell

We are changing the way we do ‘Show and Tell’ for Nursery Children. This week if your child is in ‘Rocket group’ please can they bring in an item which is special to them to show on Wednesday. We will choose a different group each week to show their favourite things.

Family Challenge

Each week we will be setting a family challenge and we love seeing some of the results! This week please can you encourage your child to put on their coat independently, if they are able to do this please extend them to do up their own zips and buttons and to put their rucksacks on their backs, please continue to practise this over half-term. Please send photographs to (write ‘Nursery and Pre-School Family Challenge AM/PM’ in the subject box). Good luck!


Please label everything with your child’s name. Every child needs a change of clothes in school in case they have an accident. If you child needs their nappy changed please provide nappies and wipes. Please remember our sessions finish at 12:00 pm and 3:30 pm, we will try to open a little earlier in order to have more time to feed back to you. Please can we have any old CDs and DVDs that you do not need any more to make mobiles for our garden. We hope you have a great half-term holiday.
