Ahoy there me hearties...Autumn 2 is here!
This half term our topic is
Nursery, are you ready to set sail, go exploring and search for treasure?
We are and we would love you too come too.
Let's find out how to sail a ship, follow a map and investigate 'under the sea.'
Jigsaw Jenie is still quite shy but loves to watch everyone in Nursery.
So far this year Jigsaw Jenie has been to the hall to watch PE and loves hearing about our experiences at home.
Our half term focus is 'Celebrating Differences'
We will be making sure everyone feels welcome by celebrating our cultures, creations and caring for each other.

Parent Information and Support
Health for Kids
There is a wonderful website below that is useful for your child and for you as a parent. It has games and information about feelings, health, illnesses and sections on body image, mental health and much more. There is also a section for you, the parent, to refer to for information on the school nurse and it shows local Solihull support services. Press here to access the website - health for kids.
It's good to keep talking -
Set aside that 5 minutes a day to share a rhyme or a story book or just
simply have a chat... because it's important to talk.
Put technology to one side for a while and encourage a 2-way conversation
with your child about anything they are interested in or
might want to talk about. Young children need to constantly hear conversations and engage in them to be able to learn how to speak to others confidently
and extend their vocabulary.

In the EYFS, we teach about dental hygiene.
The children learn the value of good brushing and how to use toothpaste to fight tooth decay. The Colgate Tooth Defenders help us to learn how to keep ourselves healthy and even give us our own toothbrush and toothpaste to take home!
The Tooth Defenders would like us to complete our brushing chart to make sure that we keep our teeth and gums healthy.
If you need any support for your child or any tips on keeping teeth clean, please see our documents below to help you. Also start taking your child to the dentist….it is never too early to start!
