Where do we start...!! Mrs Khan has been with us for 27 years and WOW what a teaching assistant she is. She is a highly experienced member of the team. She loves baking, horror stories and spoiling her children.
Our Nursery children have just finished their first half term in school and the Nursery staff are so proud of them. They have settled well and are enjoying the activities on offer to them. Over the last few weeks we have been learning different nursery rhymes. Hopefully you have found the parent help sheets that we give out each week useful, they tell you a bit about what the children will be learning at nursery and how you can help them further at home. We look forward to seeing you next week W/C 5.11.18 for our drop in parents evening session. We look forward to seeing you.
We have been exploring numbers and developing our Talk 4 Maths skills. The children were given an open ended question such as "show me 5" and could choose from a wide variety of resources to do so. The response from the children was fantastic. They were independent and enthusiastic and found different and interesting ways to represent numbers, all whilst talking and explaining their choices. Such a fun maths session!
Our weekly themes have complimented these skills and we have been learning to sing and count with 'Five little Monkeys', 'Five little ducks' and '1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive'.
Your kind 'Making and Baking' contribution
Each Term we ask parents and carers for a £3 contribution towards making and baking. In nursery we like to decorate biscuits, make pancakes, bake cakes and crumbles, chocolate nests at Easter, food tasting from foods from around the world.
A big thank you for your contributions as it also helps to buy ingredients for playdough, jelly baff, sensory play pasta, noodles, oats and hay/straw.

Fulltime Nursery Updates
This summer will see some changes to EYFS. As you may have heard in the press, the government has increased their childcare provision for 3 and 4 year olds who’s parents are both working. From September 2017, these families will now be eligible for 30 hours of free childcare. In order to accommodate these changes here at Kings Road Nursery, from September we will be offering 26 part time morning or afternoon places for those families eligible for 15 hours provision, but we will also be offering 26 full time 30 hour places for working families (subject to eligibility. Please see Trafford Council website for further details). In order to do this, this term we will be converting the music room into a new Nursery. Changes will be made so that the entrance will be within the Nursery outdoor area, linking the classroom to the rest of the EYFS areas. Its and exciting time for EYFS and we look forward to seeing the new classroom take shape.
Happy Chinese New Year
Coming soon...January 2019
