A very warm welcome to our second half-term in Acons! Thank you for sharing your family photographs last term. It was a great talking point and the children really enjoyed sharing these with us (you can still send photos in if you wish). Please can we ask that your child continues to bring a water bottle each day and a bag with a spare change of clothes in case of accidents. In an effort to promote the drinking of water, we will provide cups and a small jug of water for children to pour independently. Hopefully, this will encourage children who are reluctant water drinkers to make the transition. We’ll keep you posted!

PE Information

Wednesday morning sessions are led by Ms Bradley and focus on developing ball skills, throwing, catching and balancing. On Friday mornings we also go to the Hall for “music and movement” sessions. Children do not require a PE kit.

Extended Learning

For extended learning, your child can complete any of the tasks below:

  • Homework Grid (Activities can be brought into nursery, shared on Tapestry or emailed to
  • Year Grup Bucket List Activities

Additionally, you can share daily stories with your child, sing nursery rhymes and play counting games. For reading ideas and support, please visit There is also an interactive version of the “Owl Babies” story


Our theme for this half-term is called “After Dark”. We will be learning about nocturnal animals and seasonal changes as well as Christmas and the Nativity. We will be reading “Owl Babies” and non-fiction animal books and linking our maths and creative activities to our theme as much as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to us at nursery or alternatively, e-mail us at

Many thanks

Mrs Salmon
