Welcome to 2 Year Stay and Play
Hi welcome back to 2 Year Stay and Play!
We would like to give a huge welcome to you all and we hope you have all had an excellent Summer! We are very excited to start the new term and welcome back our older children and meet our new families. Our topic for Autumn 1 is ‘Magical Me’. We will be discovering more about ourselves and each other, through activities such as painting self portraits and a whole lot more. We have set up the role play area into a house and we cant wait for the children to come in and explore!
If you have any questions and queries please don’t
hesitate to speak to any of the 2 Year Staff!
The Room Lead in 2 Year Provision is Shelley Nicholson and the Early Years Practitioners are Kirsty Rodham and Danielle Hocking. Danielle and Shelley and Kirsty will be in the setting on a morning and then Shelley and Danielle will be in on an afternoon!
If you have any queries or questions please don't hesitate to speak to one of us or drop Shelley an email at the address below!
Session times are 8.45-11.45 and 12.15-3.15.
If someone different is collecting your child please inform school as soon as possible and make sure the person collecting brings their I.D and knows the correct password please!
We send weekly diaries home on Friday. These tell you what your child has been up to and what they have been learning. Please return these by Wednesday.
Notes from home are sent home regularly and are available anytime from staff.
You will have the opportunity to look at and contribute to your child's Learning Journey throughout the year and can ask to see this at anytime.
Each day your child will need to bring a named coat, bag and spare clothes. As the weather is becoming very changeable, we would really appreciate it if you could bring suitable clothes ready for any changes!
We go outside whatever the weather so children need to be changed frequently. Please ensure you send a named bag with plenty of spare clothes in, especially if your child is potty training.
If your child wears nappies or pull ups please send these AND wipes in a named bag each day.
Wake up Shake up and Relax Kids! (Article 28)
We have recently introduced a 'wake up' song and a 'cool down' session at the start and end of each session and the children are really responding well to this and having lots of fun taking part! The objective is to begin the session with a song to get the children excited and ready to learn and then end the session with a relaxing few minutes to let the children calm down and relax before leaving the setting!
Our First Week! (Article 31)
For some of us we have spent the first week settling back into provision and for some it has been our first week visiting 2 Year Stay and Play! We have all enjoyed exploring the new toys and new environments! Here are some photos of our week so far!
How you can help at home (Article 18)
There are lots of things that you can do at home to support your child at home.
Singing is such an important part of Early Years education, it supports speech, language, mathematical awareness and early reading.
We do encourage all children to use words instead of actions to make their wants and needs known. It is helpful if you continue this at home by encouraging talk and extending vocabulary for example if your child says "car" you could extend this by saying "yes, it's a big, red car".
When out shopping you could encourage your child to create their own shopping list. This list might be a lot of marks on paper but to your child it will be exactly what they say it is. Encourage your child to remember what they wanted to put on there " have we got everything on your list?"
If you would like to find out more about how you can help at home please speak to your child's key person.
