Over the summer our children took home sunflower seeds – look how well this one grew!

This Half-Term’s Topic is Exploring Colour with Elmer

Thursday, September 26, 2019

This half-term we are learning about colour. We have a colour of the week which will be seen around the Nursery, in the water-tray, the playdough, Show and Tell topic and within our artwork. To support this topic we are using the Elmer books. As Elmer is an Elephant we are learning about other wild animals too! Together we collaged a large picture of Elmer.

 

We are turning our outside playhouse into a Safari Cabin. There are lots of wild animals to find!

 

The Quiet Room

Thursday, September 26, 2019

Now as some of our Nursery children are staying all day they need time to rest. During summer we have set up a new Quiet Room upstairs. After lunch and playtime outside the children come in for a ‘Wiggle and a Jiggle’ – some stretches and calming down exercises based on yoga. We then tip-toe up to the Quiet Room with our soft toys ready for some rest. The lights are dimmed, we play soothing music and have twinkly lights projected on the ceiling. The children rest for about 20 minutes. We wake up with stretches and lots of fun popping the bubbles from our bubble machine. We have mats, blankets and pillows for the children to use and rest time is very popular. It provides an important balance with all the other exciting activities of the day and promotes well-being.

Welcome to a new school year at Nursery!

Thursday, September 26, 2019

We have said goodbye to some of our older children as they move up to the Reception class. We welcome back the children returning to Nursery and our new children are settling in well. There have been big changes in Nursery! We are now open all day, with Mrs Parmar leading the morning sessions and Mrs Compton leading the afternoon sessions. We also welcome Mrs Earl to our team. The Nursery is looking good!
