We had our first stay & play session of the term which was a numeracy focus, each area had a numeracy experience out for children to explore and show the adults around, thank you to all the parents, grandparents & carers for coming along.
We had our annual curriculum evening where parents were invited along to hear an 1140 presentation & also about the overall nursery experience your child will receive. Parents were then given the opportunity to explore the nursery setting and view some of the resources the children interact with. Thank you to our parents for your continuous support.
We had a great time at our Halloween party. Children took part in party games, dooking for apples, dancing & shared a party snack. We also read spooky stories and explored Halloween activities in the messy area.
The children have been learning all about fire safety in nursery. We have been practicing our matches & lighter song, stop drop & roll actions, the number to call in an emergency and our addresses. At the graduation fire fighters came into give children certificates, hear all of the busy things they had been learning and show us the fire engine and protective clothing they wear when putting fires out.
To raise money for children in need we wore active clothes to nursery or something with pudsey and donated money to the charity. Children also took part in Joe Wicks Big Morning Move on the ChildreninNeed Youtube channel. We had a busy morning being active with our PATHS programme, baking, forest kindergraden, arts and crafts activities & exploring outdoors too!
Road Safety Week 2019. Road Safety Week ran from November 18th to November 24th. The week, organised by 'Brake', a road safety charity, is an annual event and the biggest road safety awareness event in the UK. We decided to practice crossing the road safely within the nursery carpark area remembering to Stop, Look & Listen.
Thank you to all of our parents/grandparents for coming along to our stay & play session. This time it was an informal stay & play session (no specific curricular focus) simply to come into the playroom and spend time with your child.
Thank you to all of our parents for coming to celebrate Burns Day with us! We had a great time having a Scottish snack, singing our Scottish songs, telling our Scottish story "There was a wee lassie who swallowed a midge", taking part in the highland games & different Scottish activities in the nursery afterwards.
Our focus this stay & play session was Literacy, children had the chance to show parents & carers experiences available to support Literacy within our early years setting. Thank you to those of you who attended!
Some of our children visited a local Fairtrade unit as part of Fairtrade fortnight. The children travelled on the bus, when they arrived they were invited to take part in different activites e.g. fairtrade games and baking. The children saw some of their artwork displayed also!
