January Newsletter Rendlesham


We hope you all had a lovely Christmas break and start to the New Year.

All staff would like to say thank you for all the cards and gifts received. We would also like to thank you for helping us to make the Salvation Army Christmas gift appeal a huge success!


Our Topic this term is Fairy tales. Between now and Easter we will be focussing on a fairy tale each week and linking our planning to these. For example, this week we have been focussing on goldilocks and the three bears. We have been reading the story (literacy) using 3 bowls, spoons and porridge to compare quantity (maths) discussing kind behaviour & forgiveness (Personal, social and emotional development) and learning the Goldilocks and the Three bears song (Communication and language)


Our car park and the pathways around the nursery can become extremely slippery during the colder weather, please be extra cautious of this. With the possibility of snow in the upcoming weeks can I take this opportunity to remind you that if the nursery has to close for any reason then notices will go out on our Facebook page, we will also inform the local radio station BBC Suffolk. We will endeavour to keep the nursery open, where possible but with staff travelling from as far as Dunwich and Felixstowe it may be the case that limited spaces are offered to adhere to room ratios.


It is our duty as a childcare setting to ensure that the safety and wellbeing of the children that attend our setting is paramount. Therefore, can you please ensure that the doors are closed securely behind you when you enter and exit the building. Please do not hold open the door for anyone that is unfamiliar to you. I would also like to remind all parents that the use of mobile phones and cameras in the nursery building is prohibited. Except in exceptional circumstances where permission has been gained- such as nursery performances. If you need to take an important call whilst in the building then please inform a member of staff who will be happy to watch your child whilst you take the call outside.


When it is time for your child to move into the next room we aim to make this transition as fluid as possible by trialling with their key person initially, allowing them to become familiar with their new surroundings, peers and staff.

Depending on how well they settle and their individual needs, we will gradually extend their time in their new room until they move up permanently. As your child becomes more confident and comfortable they will spend more time with their new key person and less with their current.

For the children due to start school this September we will inform parents of our transition plan once school places have been allocated and confirmed in April.
