SCITT Trainees…

This week we welcome

Chris Clark, Amanda Clough, Alysia Hughes, Emma Rose and Fran Tague from the Gateshead 3-7 SCITT.

This is part of their teacher training and they are improving our nursery areas with new exciting equipment based around STEM. STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and Christina our teacher has been attending some new training. We would like to invite you all in on Friday 24th March to share ideas to support your child at home and play with your child in the Nursery exploring new ideas. We will be selling pocket money toys you can then take home to continue support learning in STEM. It is also Red Nose Day and we will finish with our cake stall as advertised.

We are the trainee teachers, Chris and Xenia, and as some of you might have heard, we would like to start a brand new and exciting music club next week.


The club will run from 3:45 – 4:30pm every Wednesday for 4 weeks.
– Wednesday 1st February
– Wednesday 8th February
– Wednesday 15th February
Half term break
– Wednesday 1st March
We are very fortunate to have a piano in the nursery, so would like to put it to good use. The club will involve lots of singing (nursery rhymes and Disney!), dancing, music games and story-telling, all to the sound of the piano and Ukulele.
There are currently ten places available so if you are interested please fill in a slip and return it to a member of staff.
We look forward to seeing you there next Thursday.
