Reminders and Requests:


Homerton is looking for lunch supervisors to join our friendly and experienced team either on regular days, or on a supply basis. If anyone in the community knows of anyone who might be interested in doing lunch at Homerton 11.30-1.00pm, on a couple of days, we would love to hear from them. No previous experience is needed just an interest and enjoyment of working with children aged 3-4.


Parents afternoon/evening for Nursery children is taking place in March – please sign up outside your classroom doors.


Message from the Head Teacher:


Dear Parents


I hope you have all had a good half term. Thank you to Mel, Bridget and Vicky for running the holiday club for us last week. All the children seem to have had a very good time.


Please do come along to our Communication, Language and Literacy workshop next Tuesday, and thank you to Jacqui for planning this.  If you are able to attend then please bring a pen and notepad with you as we have some exciting activities planned for the evening!


Next Wednesday the staff are putting on Homerton’s own version of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, for the children, so children may well be telling you about it.

Bob, our caretaker, has offered to be Daddy Bear for us!

Next Thursday is also World Book Day.  If any of you would like to come in and share stories with children at drop off time, for 10-15 minutes, we would love to have you here – please just let class staff know if you are able to do this. During the week children are also invited to bring in their favourite story (please put their name in the book), to share at Circle times with class.


We have a busy half term ahead with lots of lovely events for the children planned. If you are able to get involved with activities in class please do, as your help is always very welcome.


Covid/Medical Update: One member of staff has tested positive for Covid this week. Please continue to keep children at home if they are poorly.
Some of our Learning this week     

Children have been enjoying celebrating ‘Pancake day’ and Carnevale yesterday and today. I thought you would like to see some pictures of things they have been doing  in the first couple of days of term.


Carnevale Mask Making











The children have been making and decorating masks as part of their Carnivale celebrations. Italian is also our language of the half term and I shall be sending out some more information on all things Italian next week.



We have also been enjoying pancake themed music and cooking sessions.

Davina, our music teacher, sang some lovely pancake songs with the children and shared her own version of the story ‘Mr Wolf’s Pancake’.

Pancake fun







Children have also been enjoying making and eating their own pancakes…by all accounts they were delicious!





Wishing all our families a happy second half of the Spring Term

With Best wishes from us all
