Playing in bubbles

This week the children have been having fun playing in and with bubbles! On Wednesday they made the most of the big puddles on the playground. Mrs Tinkler put bubbles in the puddles and they splashed in it making their own bubbly water. On Friday we took the bubbles onto the field and chased them around in the wind, very good exercise and lots of fun as  well.

The children have being doing lots of work on oral blending this week. They are becoming pretty good at finding the object when the word is sounded out. This is a fantastic pre- reading activity which can easily by done at home using every day objects such as tin, pen, cat, mat, dog, peg etc.

The Star of the week this week was Dougie- he is listening really well and showing great interest and knowledge in lots of subjects. Well done Dougie!

Enjoying the sunshine

This week the children in Little Wenlock have spent a lot of time outside enjoying being in the sunshine and exploring the outdoor area.

They have been learning the skill of listening, going on listening walks and playing games that encourage listening and concentration. A particular favourite activity this week was going on a bear hunt after they read the lovely book with the same name by Michael Rosen, the story can be found on You Tube if you want to watch it again together.

The children have really enjoyed learning their colours by looking at the book Colour Monsters, this has also helped them to explore their feelings and emotions.

The letter sound that they have been looking at this week is ‘s’ if you want to support your child with this remember we say the sound of the letter and not the name.

We had our Friday bubble celebration assembly today and Mrs Tinkler chose Gideon as her star for helping the new children to find their way around their new environment. Well done to him!


End of week 2

The children have done really well settling into nursery and learning the new routines. Today they went on a ‘listening walk ‘ wearing their ‘listening ears’. They are finding their way around the setting and discovering new toys and friends to play with. Everyone was very tired today and deserve a well earned weekend rest (Mrs Tinkler included)! Next week we will be doing ‘Welly Wednesday’ and we will need a change of clothes or waterproofs. We are still having trouble with the iPads in school so are unable to put photos on as yet. Next week I will  try to put some on using a different method.

Little Wenlock’s ‘Star of the Week’ was Myla, she wasn’t in school today but will receive her certificate on Monday. Well done to her!

First week back.

It has been lovely to see our Year One  children again and to welcome all our new Nursery and Reception children into school. Everyone appears to have enjoyed themselves and have quickly settled into the new routines. Unfortunately we have had a little trouble with the Internet this week so I haven’t been able to put any photos on the class pages. Hopefully this will be remedied soon. Please ensure that your child brings a coat and water bottle each day and all clothing is labelled as P. E will start on Tuesday. Thankyou for your support in this. From Monday fruit will be availabile at snacks time.

First day

The children settled in well on their first day in Little Wenlock. They had fun playing with the new toys and also with their new friends. Please keep an eye on the class page for information and photos of what the children have been doing in school.

Nursery in September

Dear parents,

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome your child to Little Wenlock. We are very much looking forward to the year ahead and thought it would be helpful to share some key information.

Our class will be a small class of nursery age children. Here are a few things that you will need to know before starting:

  • Your child will come into class straight away in the morning via the external classroom door.
  • To ensure social distancing is able to take place and overcrowding is reduced, pupils will be permitted to arrive between 8.45am and 9.15am.
  • At the end of the day, pupils will leave via the external classroom door. Again, to avoid overcrowding, you may pick your child up between 2.45pm and 3.15pm.
  • Parents will not be permitted to enter the school building- it will be by appointment only.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available for your child to use before entering and leaving the class. We also have handwashing facilities in class and hand sanitisers around school. Your child will not need to bring their own hand sanitiser into school.
  • PE kits must remain in school and include a tracksuit. In the first instance, all PE will take place outside so pupils will need to be dressed appropriately.
  • Waterproof clothing and a change of shoes/wellies will be needed . This can be kept in school until half term or sent home for a wash if very muddy!
  • No jewellery should be worn to school with the exception of stud earrings. Earrings must be removed on the days we have PE .
  • Your child will be permitted to take a class library book home each week.
  • Drink bottles must be labelled and contain water only.
  • Your child may bring in a healthy snack (e.g. fruit) which must be kept in their bag.
  • Your child will only need their bag and bottle each day, please no toys to be brought into class.
  • NO nuts to be brought into school. We have pupils who have nut allergies.

We recognise that the transition to returning to full-time education in the nursery environment may also have an impact on the pupils’ emotional well-being. No doubt, they will find the first few weeks tiring and we have a curriculum in place to address their emotional well-being.

Most importantly, we ask that we work together to support your child effectively. We are keen to address any concerns or issues you may have at the earliest opportunity. We do appreciate that school systems and procedures will be different as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic but we are confident that we will all be able to adapt quickly if we follow guidelines. It is also likely that these systems and procedures may alter over the year and we will keep you informed of any changes.

Please contact the office should you require further information.

We look forward to your child attending Little Wenlock in September.

Mrs Tinkler and Mrs Parker

World Book Day

The children have had a lovely day dressed up as their favourite character. Unfortunately we are having some technical difficulties with Little Wenlock’s I pad at the moment so I haven’t been able to upload any photos. Will do our best to get it sorted next week.
