Spring Term 2020
This year is disappearing very quickly, already we are halfway through and each day we see more and more learning taking place and the children growing both emotionally and physically.
The children helped to make pancakes, weighing the ingredients, mixing the batter, watching as Mr. Roake cooked and flipped, adding sugar and lemon and then tasting. Even children who were reluctant at least tasted the pancakes and decided that they do like them after all.
We have also celebrated Chinese new year with a visit from a dragon and world book day where we all got to dress up and share our love of reading.
We returned from the Christmas holiday to new learning opportunities including a bear hunt in the outside area and new playmobil toys that Father Christmas brought to the nursery.
Autumn Term 2019
Very soon we will be starting rehearsals for the Christmas concerts. These will be on Thursday the 12th and Friday 13th December. Please check the newsletter to find out exactly when your child’s class is.
We have had school photos and almost everyone smiled. These have now all been sent out and must be returned to the school office no later than Friday 22nd November.
Children have been busy learning inside and outside at a wide variety of activities that have already changed several times in order to allow not only for development and progression but also in order to ensure that important events such as Diwali and Halloween and the changing of the seasons are learnt about. During our carpet sessions we have been learning how to make different sounds with our voices, the names and properties of 2d shapes, how to make different types of marks, taking turns with our peers and we have started to count different groups of objects,
The year is off to a flying start with most of the nursery children now in fully. We have had some tears and tantrums, and that’s just from the staff, but now the children are happy and settled and are looking forward to a great year. We would like to thanks everyone for inviting us into your homes before the start of the year and for all the support given by parents and carers during what is a difficult time. We know that it can be traumatic for children and adults alike but by working together we can ensure that the children are as happy and healthy as possible over the course of this year.
