Nursery First Week
What a fantastic week we have had with all the new Nursery children. As you can see they have loved exploring the playground, their new classrooms and getting to know their new teachers.
Next week they will get to explore more of the school and meet their PE, Music and Arabic teachers.
Each class will have a focus book and take part in many different art activities based on the theme. I wonder if your child will be able to remember which book we’ve read?
As the Infant School’s focus is healthy eating, we will also be talking about healthy and unhealthy food. We need your help to ensure all children come to school with a healthy snack.
We take the importance of a healthy diet, very seriously. We talk about healthy and unhealthy foods every day in snack time, in order to help your children to learn while they are at school. Eating foods high in sugar or additives, is proven to reduce children’s attention span, limit their ability to focus and hinders information retention.
As a result, we have developed a healthy eating policy in the British School of Bahrain. Please make sure your child’s snack has no high sugar/additive foods such as, biscuits, doughnuts, cake and flavoured milk. Avoid fried food such as, chicken nuggets, chips or samosas.
We also request that you have no nuts or products that contain nuts in your child’s lunch box. There are some children in nursery with severe allergies to nuts and we need to do our best as a community to ensure that these children are protected as best we can. Please note that products to avoid include, Nutella, peanut butter and pistachio nuts, as these are all nut products.
On the afternoon of Wednesday 26th September we would like to invite you all for tea and coffee afternoon. This will allow you to meet some of the new parents from your child’s class and have a short information talk about our curriculum and expectations.
Please note that this means you will not need to attend the information evening on Monday 10th which is for Reception and KS1 parents.
We understand that the uniform shop is currently out of stock on some items and would like to thank you for your understanding and patience with this. We would just like to take this time to remind you, children should not be wearing jewellery at school as it can be a health and safety hazard. Please note that girls should wear blue or white hair accessories.
It’s also very helpful if every child brings to school a change of clothes. This helps us in the event of an accident or their clothes getting wet during water play.
