RAVENSCROFT NURSERY SCHOOL
JANUARY NEWSLETTER 2017
Happy New Year
We will be using ‘Frozen’ as a theme- If you have Frozen mini figures etc that we could borrow it would be much appreciated. Also we wil be using large frozen ice blocks - if you would have room at home in your freezer to make some of these would you speak to Mrs Symington/Mrs McGowan
Colours for the month will be black and white. In association with this we are having a “black and white day” on Friday 20th January when we hope the children will wear some black and white clothing if at all possible. (Usual activities will still take place, so make sure items are suitable for a Nursery day.)
Please see your child’s teacher if you wish to sign up to receive a story sack each week.
Our ‘Time to Talk’ language Programme will continue throughout January. Keep an eye on the classroom notice boards for the updates on themes covered. We will be having a workshop for parents on our ‘Time to Talk’ programme on Thursday 12th January after 9am drop off.
This January we will be launching our ‘Getting Ready to Learn’ programme. The ‘Big Book Read’ is the first part of the programme and we will be sending home bedtime books for you to share with your child later in the month- more details to follow.
We have received notification from the Education Authority that as of 1st January 2017 the price ofnursery school meals is to increase from £2.40 to £2.45. From next week, will you please send £12.25 for 5 days school dinners and £4.00 for school fund- Total: £16.25
