Nursery Welcome Information
Under normal circumstances we would invite all our new starters and parents in for a visit to provide you with an opportunity to meet the staff and get to see your child's new classroom. Due to the current situation this is not possible. Below you will find links to documents that provide you with all the information you need to know about your child's start in Nursery.
The Nursery team will shortly be giving you a call, to discuss things with you and this will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you may have. Please be patient, we have a lot of new parents to call and we will be in touch with everyone in the next few weeks.
After that, if you have any questions, no matter how small, then please contact us via email:
Mrs Holt (Deputy Head)
Miss Meier (Nursery Teacher)
We look forward to meeting you and your child in the Autumn Term and welcoming them into Nursery.
We can't wait, it is going to be so much fun!
I thought it would be nice for you to find out about the sort of things we do in Nursery. I have attached a link to our current Class Page so that you can have a read and take a look at the pictures and videos to see what we have been up to this year. I have also included a link to last year’s class page so you can get a feel for Nursery life at Bentinck.
Enjoy exploring and make sure you check the page again next week as I will be adding a new story and activity. Until then stay safe.
Here are some fun activities that you can try with your child over the Summer.
Here is a lovely music session that you and your child can do together. You will both need an old cardboard box and two wooden spoons so you can join in with your home made drums.
You do not need to do it all in one go! Break it up into smaller chunks if your child finds it hard to concentrate for long. Stop after one song and continue the next day. You can come back to it again and again.
Here is another lovely activity you can do together using old toilet rolls. Making things helps children to learn to think creatively and helps them become problem solvers. These are important skills to foster and nurture for their future development.
I know making things can be messy, so my advice is to have your child wear old clothes and put a big cloth down to protect the floor or table.
Nursery Rhymes play an important role in our Nursery curriculum. They are great for developing language, memory, creativity, an understanding of rhythm and rhyme and early maths and literacy skills.
Here are some of our favourite rhymes. You can choose one or two to teach your child or you could just play them in the background as your child plays. The choice is yours!
Have a lovely Summer everyone and we will see you all in September!
