Rabbits - Nursery

 A very warm welcome to the Rabbit Class. Our nursery is situated within the 'Rabbit Warren' and our nursery lead is Mrs Bollington.

Water Bottles

Water bottles should be in school each day and should contain only water or sugar-free squash.  Any worries or concerns, please don't hesitate to speak to me. 

Snacks

Children are provided with a  fruit snack each morning or afternoon, along with their 'free' milk drink.

Toast is available to purchase, for an additional morning snack. This costs £1.25 per week or every two weeks if your child attends for only 15 hours.  This is payable on Parent Pay. 

Reading Books.

Children are issued with school reading books and a reading record book. Books will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays, but please send them in each day to school as we try and read as often as we can.

At Walton, we use Rainbow Readers as a reading reward scheme, to support reading at home. Reading is such a vital skill for life and one that is essential for accessing the curriculum further up the school. We are a book-loving school, and really hope our children will become passionate and avid readers too! Each time your child reads 25 times at home, they get a different coloured badge. 200 reads give the children a highly coveted gold badge. We count a maximum of 7 home reads each week - so, even though you may read more often, you only need to do a daily summary in the record book. 

We ask that children are read to at least 5 times a week at home, but ideally each day. This can take many forms and doesn't need to always be 'school books' - books from home, magazines, e-readers, audiobooks and even cookery books all make exciting ways to access a wide range of vocabulary. If your child is a reluctant reader at home, do let us know - we have many strategies to support this. 

Forest School

On a Wednesday afternoon, Miss Botrill and Miss Townsend will engage in Forest School with the Rabbit class. The children should come to school in their forest clothes on this day. These should be warm clothes with long sleeves and trousers. Footwear should be suitable e.g. wellies and they should bring a waterproof in case the weather turns. All clothes and footwear should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
