We will aim to respond to you the same day (during school hours)

Hello parents,

It seems so long since we’ve seen some of your children and very soon they’ll be starting new schools. The staff in the nursery thought it would be nice to have a quick ‘virtual’ catch up and farewell. We are going to host 3 Zoom meetings, one with each key person next Wednesday 15th July, times set out below.

 

You need to join the meeting with your child’s key person. We suggest you and your child sit together and join the ZOOM meeting, with your video on but your microphone switched off! The host (Mrs White, Mrs Harriss or Mrs Monaghan) will talk first, then each person will be asked to turn on their microphone to share a piece of news, a picture, or even a short dance! Then at the end, we will sing a rhyme together.

 

If your child does not want to talk that’s ok, it will still be nice to see them and for them to see their peers. We will try to limit the meeting to about 15 minutes (assuming no technical difficulties!)

 

I hope you will be able to make it.
