To further encourage our children to develop a love of reading we have adapted our family sharing time. We welcome parents to stay for the first 15 minutes of each session and will now put out a selection of reading books on a Tuesday and Thursday that we would like our parents to share with their children.  On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will have our name writing cards out as usual. 

We will be restarting a library system in Nursery ( Thursday 19th September 2019)where we will let your child choose a book to bring home for the week to enjoy with you. Books will be swapped on a Thursday so we ask that on a Thursday your child puts their library book in the box in the cloakroom ready to be swapped.
