Nursery do not have homework.
All of the children are given a ‘Parent Information’ file, which is updated weekly.
The file provides parents and carers with information on what we have been learning/what our main focus will be the following week, and also contains suggestions and ideas for ways you can support your child at home.
Please return the file every Wednesday so that it can be updated and sent out every Thursday.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Many thanks for your support,
Miss Knobbs (Monday - Thursday mornings) & Miss Moore
