New Nursery Parents 21/22

Hello Everyone


We hope you are well and are enjoying the warmer weather.  

I am pleased to tell you we have now uploaded our next video.  Here you will see Mrs Colwell also enjoying the sunshine and planting some sunflower seeds.


By now you should have received a letter in the post, with a little bag containing sunflower seeds for your child to plant at home.  The seeds are Ring of Fire Sunflowers and can be planted directly into the ground outside 1.5cm part or as Mrs Colwell has done into a pot and then planted into the ground when hardier.  The seeds are ready to plant now and should flower July to September.

We are very much looking forward to all our new nursery pupils joining us in September to begin their learning adventures.


Normally at this time of year, we would start to invite children into school to visit us.  Unfortunately, with COVID restrictions still in place, we are unable to do that at the moment.


However, we still want to ensure children have a smooth transition into school and to help, we will be posting a series of videos here over the coming weeks and sending activities home for children.


To start with, we thought the children might like to start getting to know Mrs Colwell, their class teacher.  Click on the video below to meet Mrs Colwell and find out some exciting facts about her!

Meet Mrs Colwell
