What To Expect From Term 1 2018

term 1 2018

It is Term One at Humpty Dumpty Nursery School and we have kicked off this new year with lots of enthusiasm and excitement. We welcome all our children and parents back and also extend a warm welcome to all our new children and parents who have joined us this term.

We have so many fun things planned for this term and we would like to share them with you. We started this week with our first theme “All About Myself”. The children are engaged and already learning more about their bodies and what makes them unique and special. Our themes run over a few weeks at a time. The themes for this term are:

  • All about me
  • Colours all around & the shape of things
  • Sing a song of opposites
  • Summertime

The remaining 3 weeks of term the Wood Hoopoes and Fish Eagles classes will spend time on further preparing for the school assessments.

We have our school picnic coming up very soon on the 1st if February from 16:30 till 18:00 at the school. We will also do Virtues training that evening introducing parents to our Virtues and character training curriculum and what it entails. The training will be done the first part of the afternoon and then afterwards we will have a “Bring It Yourself” picnic and get to know teachers and other parents. Bring your children along to play and have fun. They will be watched by staff the first part of the afternoon on the playground.

At the end of term we will launch Humpty Dumpty Book Week. We are very excited about this as it will give the children an opportunity to learn more about books and reading and nurturing a love for it. We will also ask parents to donate a book during this week that is related to one of our themes. This will help us as a school to expand our resources and help us teach the themes even better. The dates will be confirmed.

We have been keeping all the artwork that your children create in class as we will be having an exhibition the last day of term, turning the school into an art gallery. This will be a lovely time where you can view all their creations and appreciate their handy work throughout term.

Our school trip this term is to the dentist and fits in nicely with our theme “All about me”. The dates for these trips are the 15th and 16th of February. We will send out consent forms and more information on which children will go which days, etc. soon.

We wish you an enjoyable first term at Humpty Dumpty and remember that we have an open-door policy, so you are always welcome!
