Nursery Reading Scheme
To support your child's developing reading skills you will recieve an email from the Nursery this week to inform you or your chid's next steps. For those children who are still developing confience in their sounding and blending skills they will continue to progress through the 'Sound Blending' books. For those children who have devloped confidence in sounding and blending, they will be using the 'My Phonics Book'. Please view the relevant video below on how to use the book/booklet to support your child develop their early reading skills.
Remote Phonics Workshop and Nursery Reading Scheme
You will be able to find a recording of the Phonics Workshop on Microsoft Teams. By clicking on the link on the Teams page, you will be able to access the session.
Please note the Nursery Reading Scheme is for children who are progressing to start Reception in September 2022. Children who will be staying with us in the Nursery next year will not be taking part in the reading scheme at this point. Children who are staying in Nursery in September 2022 will take part in our phonics sessions as an introduction to letter sounds but will not need to sound and blend cvc
Reminder: Books go home Thursday /Friday and are returned to Nursery Monday/ Tuesday. For children using the 'My Phonics Book' please use one page per week until the end of the booklet.

Supporting your child at home.
Nursery Behaviour Policy
During Parent Consultation Meetings some parents have expressed a preference to carry on the use of our behaviour plan at home. We have therefore included our Golden Rules which are used throughout the whole school and our Traffic Light system. We hope you will find them useful to use with your children at home.
Parent Workshop on Language and Communication
Thank you to those parents who were able to attend the workshop on Saturday morning. We are glad you found it useful and informative. We will be presenting another workshop at the end of January 2022 about phonics.
The Power Point from the workshop is available below.
Early Start Ealing are providing a range of workshops for parents to support early development in specific areas for children. Please view the document below and book via the email address if you have interest in any of the sessions they provide.
Children's Snacks in Nursery
Just a reminder to say that due to pupil allergies, please do not put any snacks into your child's bag to bring into Nursery. Children should have a water bottle and named changes of clothes. Could you please also encourage your child not to bring in any toys from home as if they are lost or damaged it causes a lot of distress for your child.
Water bottles in Nursery
Please ensure that children only have water in their water bottles when they bring them to Nursery. Water is great for the children and it helps to hydrate them quickly, is good for their teeth and is brilliant brain food.
Forest School sessions are led by Nursery Teachers and Mrs Watts who is a certified Forest School teacher as well as the class teacher for RF Reception class at Fielding. Forest School will start on Monday 27th September.
You will receive a message via your Bromcom account on a Friday/Wednesday to let you know if your child is attending Forest School. Ladybird children attend Forest School on Monday afternoons and Dragonfly children will either attend Monday afternoons or Thursday mornings. If you child is due to attend Forest School then please send them to Nursery with wellies or waterproof shoes. They will also need a raincoat/shower jacket as the weather does not stop us.

Nursery Outdoor Learning Area
Please can you help us keep our Outdoor Learning Area tidy at the end of the day by encouraging your children not to play or use our equipment when you are collecting your child from the Nursery. We know it is an inviting and exciting place for children to be, but we would be grateful if you could please promote our outdoor area as our outdoor classroom. Thank you.
Supporting Children with Additional Needs
All children may experience some difficulties in learning from time to time during their school life. We aim to provide equal access to the whole curriculum for all children including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). All nursery staff are involved in the learning and development of pupils with SEND with Parents/Carers involved at all stages.
Mrs Chadwick is the schools SENDCo, she works closely with nursery to ensure that any children experiencing difficulties are able to gain the support needed as early as possible.
We place great emphasis on identifying pupils with additional needs as early as possible, therefore ensuring a differentiated curriculum to accommodate individual needs and allow maximum access to the curriculum. Where a child has a particular individual need, we will make reasonable adjustments to help them overcome their difficulties which may include additional support. Depending on the identified need this support may take place in class, in a small group or on an individual basis. On occasion, additional support is sought from an external agency such as;
- School Health
- Behavior Support service
- Educational Psychology Service
Speech and Language
SEN Inclusion team

If you are picking up from the Ladybird class at 3.30pm then please be aware that the Ladybird children go to tea at 3.30 till 4.00pm. We will have the children ready to go at 3.30pm if we know in advance.
