High Street Nursery Weekly News
This week, the children have enjoyed learning the story ‘The Colour Monster’, the children have been learning about a range of feelings such as: sad, happy, angry, scared and calm. The children have settled well into Nursery, the staff and I are very proud of the children.
Next week, we will begin to read the story ‘Peace at last’ and we will continue with the topic ‘All about me’.
Thank you for all the parents who have sent photos of your child and their family.The children have loved looking at the photos and it has gave them the opportunity to talk about members of their family. If you would like to send a photo in, you can send to the Nursery email: [email protected]
If you have further questions or concerns, please do come and speak to me at school or you can email me on the Nursery email.
Helping your child at home:
· Each week we will put a nursery rhyme on the back of the newsletter for you to share with your child. Nursery rhymes play a very important role in early language skills, development of vocabulary, rhythm, rhyme and early phonics skills. Share the rhyme with your child on a regular basis.
· Encourage your child to tidy up after themselves at home, putting one set of toys away before getting others
· Counting out – encourage your child to count out objects in the environment e.g. how many knives/folks needed for tea time.
· Number recognition – encourage your child to talk about and identify numerals in the environment e.g. door numbers, numbers on price tags etc.
· Encourage your child to take off and put on their own coat.
- If you could send your child into school with a pair of wellies it will ensure we can access our woodland area all year round.
- If you are collecting or dropping off your child at 12pm the only access will be via the gate nearest to the chip shop off the High Street. Please wait by the small green gate at the bottom of the path by the trees (opposite the nursery building).
- We have a school twitter account if you would like to follow us: @nurshistprimary
- We have a school page where updates and newsletters are published – Winsford High Street Primary School

Before posting the previous post about Tik Tom, we checked the BBC News site and it would appear to be genuine.
We realise that there are false news items in circulation and that they get exaggerated. However, we decided to post this information to ensure all members of our community are vigilant.
All social media platforms have their risks, which is why there are specific age recommendations for their use.
I have been made aware by a parent and by also seeing on BBC news, that a graphic video of a man committing suicide has gone viral on Tik Tok. Tik Tok are believed to be struggling to remove the video and subsequent shares.
Please see a link to the story on the BBC and take care to ensure that your children are safe.
bbc.com The video has been viewed by children who report being extremely distressed by the content.
[09/05/20] So pleased to have been able to welcome all of our fantastic children back to school this week! A great team effort by the staff, thanks also to all of our parents and grandparents for your support.
Lovely to welcome the children back today! So proud of their positive attitude and behaviour! Lots of positives, but a few things to work on as one would expect!
Notably the entry and exit to the Verdin car park! As we consider ways to overcome the congestion, please can I request patience and a sensible approach from all concerned!
This problem has been made worse with the closure of the car park on the town!
Good luck to last years Year 6 as they embark on the next phase
of their education, we will be thinking of you!
[09/01/20] We are looking forward to welcoming back all of our children tomorrow. All the staff have worked hard in making sure that we are going to be as safe as possible.
Having reached the end of what has been an extremely difficult year, I would like to thank all of our parents for their support and good wishes. We have managed to welcome back over half of the school; the children returning have been fantastic as have those working from home.
Yesterday we said farewell to our Y6 having celebrated their last day with a camp fire and outdoor cooking( apologies to parents for the fire aroma). We also watched our virtual assembly and celebrated the achievements of all. On behalf of all at the school, I would like to wish them all the best for the future. Hopefully the girls and boys concerned will return at some point to share their onward journeys!
On behalf of all of my team I would
Like to thank the children and parents for the gifts and comments received. Much appreciated by all!
At High Street we have a strong sense of community, which for such a large school is a credit to all! I am very proud to be the Headteacher and look forward to welcoming existing and pupils new to the school in September. There will be challenges, but together we can ensure that the children receive the best education possible in a safe and friendly manner.
Wishing all a wonderful summer!

One of our pupils AK, has been working hard to raise money to support Chester Zoo, together with her brothers and friends from other schools in the community. We are very proud of their efforts. Please see the link below which captures a picture of all concerned. The children are walking up their stairs to represent climbing Ben Nevis to raise the funds.

The Lord Mayor of the City of Chester
Councillor Mark Williams invited children from across the Borough to write a poem to commemorate VE Day. This young lady from Y5 received a commendation for her efforts! Super proud!!!!😀
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, sadly the planned civic and military public commemoration events to mark 75 years since the Second World War ended have been cancelled.
Following to the lockdown announcement, Cheshire West residents, as well as the rest of the Country, are now being encouraged to create their own special lockdown VE Day commemoration weekend from the comfort of their own homes.
As the Civic Service and Military Parade which was originally scheduled for 10 May 2020, were cancelled, the Lord Mayor of Chester, The Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council and Chester Cathedral have come together to produce a Virtual Civic Service to commemorate 75 years since the end of World War 2. Military Personnel, local dignitaries, Chester Cathedral clergy and school children have all contributed to the short service which has been recorded from their personal locations, including on board HMS Albion.
Whatever you have planned on Friday, please take time in your day to sit back and enjoy the virtual civic VE day service from the comfort of your own homes.
