We used to be babies! 👶 The theme this term is ‘Celebrating ME!’ So we have started it off with looking at babies, talking about babies and pretending to have babies! The children have been exploring their own experiences of growing up and becoming “big boys and girls”. We have our very own real pregnant Miss Treadgold in room 1 and the children are very excited 👶 We have grown very fond of a new movement song 🎶 which has inspired our washing line activity. Take a look here and ask your children to teach you the moves! youtu.be/yjce4zKauyI?feature=shared ... See MoreSee Less

This week in Nursery, our theme has been all about On The Pond. 🦆 We have had lots of pond themed activities out. The children have all loved our frogs tray. We mixed Chia seeds, water and green jelly together to make frog spawn. It is an unusual texture, very slimey but the children all loved getting messy in it and hopping the frogs. 🐸The children have also been playing our fishing game to develop their co-ordination skills and have also used the fishing nets to catch some fish and ducks! We have been decorating some frogs with tissue paper and jumping up and down!🦆🐸🐠 ... See MoreSee Less

We’ve been monkeying around in room 1 this week! Monkey Puzzle was our inspiration for many exciting activities, giving us lots of opportunities to further develop our learning! We made banana muffins that “tasted delicious”. Our grown ups gave us a challenge at snack time with mathematical bananas that we were encouraged to peel all by ourselves because we are learning to be super duper independent! And we have enjoyed the fabulous sunny weather, swinging and leaping around like chimps 🐵Take a look at the children’s favourite positional language video on YouTube “where’s the monkey” youtu.be/idJYhjGyWTU?si=K3OXtwQJy5NkEex0 ...

We would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the support you have given F over the years.  He has had a wonderful time and he has made some lovely friendships. The Leaver’s Assembly today was just super, the children were all so engaged and happy – a real joy to see.  It was lovely to see F on the stage.  I can appreciate all the hours it took to produce a performance like that and it was a real pleasure to watch.

C has settled in well to Room 1 and enjoys attending pre-school.  Staff make every effort to make C’s time there special and he has come home with certificates with his favourite superheroes which  was a lovely touch.  I feel that staff know C well and have been great helping him with his development and things like potty training.
