Friday 24th May is non uniform day. Please send your child in their choice of clothing, no all-in-ones, nightmare for getting out of for using the toilet!
Half term next week. Nursery re-opens on Monday 3rd June. Enjoy the break.
This week's theme has been centered around the film 'Monster's Inc'. In the secret garden the children collected natural materials to make their very own monsters. As you can see from the pictures below the results were fantastic! With regards to the secret garden, could you please send your child with a coat even if it does look like it is going to be warm because it can be quite shaded and breezy in the secret garden.
We have also been looking at shape and the children's cutting skills whilst making monsters.
The children have continued to make great progress in our Read Write Inc program and have shown great enthusiasm!
The Nursery Read Write Inc (RWI) sessions are underway for children who will be entering full time education in September. The sessions comprise of snappy interactive 10 minute lessons introducing a new sound each day with games and the help of our friendly frog Fred.

A letter about our summer trip will be given out in the next few days, please note payment for this trip can be made using ParentMail. Any questions just ask a member of staff.
I can’t believe how fast this term has gone! This week we continued our focus on Easter, by estimating how many eggs were in a jar, making chocolate Easter nests, matching eggs in the Secret Garden and today to finish off we’re going on an egg hunt.
Have a good break and we’ll see you all back in nursery on Wednesday 24th April.
This week we have been learning about Easter. We learnt that Christians all over the world celebrate Easter and people go to church for a special service. In the secret garden the children practiced their phonics by looking for letters. They then went onto making Easter eggs out of leaves, grass and twigs. We were also lucky enough to spot some lady birds.
The children have also had the opportunity to use weighing scales and have practiced using vocabulary such as heavy and light.
There's just one week left before the Easter break, hasn't this term flown by?!
This week we have continued with our 'weather' theme and this week focused on rain. The children learnt about the water cycle and how water is needed for plants to grow. In the secret garden we went on a leaf hunt, seeing what different leaves we could find and which type of tree they came from. The children also planted some wild flower seeds which we hope to see in bloom very soon.
Thank you to all of you who made it to the stay and play session. It was fantastic to see so many of you.
Over the next two weeks we will be focusing on Easter, with many different activities planned.
This Friday is the Spring/Easter Stay and Play for both morning and afternoon children. The morning starts at 9.00am and finishes at 11am. The afternoon starts at 1.00pm and finishes at 3.00pm.
Please be aware that the nursery can only accommodate 1 adult per child and younger siblings are discouraged due to the nature of the activities.
Come along with your child for some creative fun!
All the children who attended the nursery today, decorated a pancake with healthy toppings. Then they enjoyed eating it during snack time. Yum!
Next week we will be focusing on Spring which will run along-side the other topics we are covering this term.
We will also be thinking about being kind and thoughtful. The book we will be reading is Have You Filled A Bucket Today? We will be discussing how our actions affect others and how we can fill our buckets with kindness.
