Christmas information

Thursday 02 December 2021

Here is all of the important Christmas information that was provided on the letter that we sent home on Monday.

Christmas events

We will still be celebrating Christmas this year, although once again, it may look a little bit different to our usual Nursery celebrations.  Here are some important dates and information about the next few weeks in Nursery.

Christmas Recording

As outlined in our previous letter, it’s not going to be possible to host a Christmas performance that you can watch in school this year. However, that’s not going to stop us from performing! You’ll be able to watch ‘Our First Christmas Play” from the comfort of your own home. For this, we’d like children to have a Christmas themed/coloured top trousers, leggings or a skirt to wear when taking part in the play. Please bring it to school by Wednesday 1st December.  You do not need to buy anything new – a cheerful or festive top that they can be comfortable in all day (playing out and eating lunch in too) will be fine.  Please put your child’s NAME in their clothes and put it in a small bag.  It will remain in Nursery until we have filmed our play.

 Christmas Dinner

Christmas lunch in school will be on Thursday 09 December.  If you’d like your child to join in, please let us know and we’ll add your child onto the list. Payment (£2.20) can be made online. Please call the office if you are unsure of how to do this.

 Christmas Party

Our Nursery Christmas party will be on Monday 13 December in the afternoon. If your child already attends Nursery on that day, you can send them to Nursery in cheerful or festive clothing.  Children will still be playing in Nursery provision and outside in the morning, so please make sure clothing is warm and comfortable.

For children that attend Nursery on Monday, collection will be at the same time as usual, 2.15pm.

If your child doesn’t attend Nursery on Monday, they are welcome to join us for the party. Children will need to have had lunch before they arrive and be wearing their ‘party’ clothes. We will greet you at the main Nursery door.  Please arrive promptly at 12.30pm and collect at 2.15pm. Please let a member of staff know if your child will be joining the party.

Children attending mornings only – If your child usually only attends Nursery for the morning session, please feel free to swap their morning session that day and just arrive for the party in the afternoon, or you can collect them slightly earlier on the party day at 11.30am. This should allow you time to have some lunch before returning to Nursery. Please speak to a member of staff if you have any questions.

Party treats

Children will have lunch as usual on Monday but during the party, we will provide them with a treat and drink. We’d like to ask for £1 contribution towards party treats and will place a donation jar outside Nursery soon.  Thank you in advance for your contributions.

Christmas crafts

It wouldn’t be Christmas in Nursery if we couldn’t take part in all of our favourite Christmas crafts! Sadly, we can’t invite you to our usual ‘Christmas Stay and Decorate’ mornings, but don’t worry, children will still get to take part in some fun activities. We will put their Christmas crafts in a bag and send them home in the final week.
