FS1 Week 38 2012

The children have been very busy this week exploring the setting further. They have especially enjoyed getting ready to have their photographs taken and putting on their “make up” in the new Bielefeld Photo Studio.

Next week, we will begin our topic of “All about me”. If you have any family photographs that you can send in for your child to talk about then please send them in, we will return them to you at the end of the topic. Also if you have any books linked to families/ ourselves/ senses that your child would like to share please feel free to bring them in too.

Clothing: Please make sure that your child has a complete change of clothes with them every day so that we can change them after they have had lots of messy fun if needed!! (The muddy digging area is proving to be very popular at the moment. Wellies and a warm coat are also required in the setting daily, (waterproof trousers are also a good idea so your child can continue to play outside all year round).

Snack money: Thank you to those parents who have returned the baking donation and slip. If you haven’t already done so, please return as soon as possible as we would like to start cooking/ tasting activities next week and we need to know if there are any allergies in the setting.

Naming clothing: Please can you make sure that all clothing, even shoes have names in. We have lots of shoes/ wellies that look exactly the same.

Can you help us, please? We are hoping to extend our outdoor music area, so if you have any old pots and pans at home that you are going to throw away, please send them into us, they will be really useful.

Magic Rainbow Moments: In your child’s book bag, there will be a letter explaining all about Magic Rainbow Moments. This is a fun way to share what they have been learning at home with their friends in the setting. If you can attach a photo to the slip as well that would be even better. We look forward to seeing what the children have been doing at home.

If you have any worries or concerns, please feel free to contact us straight away, we are more than happy to help sort any problems out big or small.
