We explore our classroom both inside and outside and learn through play and focus activities.

Ava's dad came to Visit to talk about being a Firefighter

Ava's dad came in to talk to the children about being a firefighter. He showed us what he has to wear for his uniform and what he has to do in his job. He talked about keeping people safe and how he has to keep safe too by wearing lots of safety clothing. We are going to enjoy pretending to be firefighters this week.

This term we have enjoyed being pirates. We have been reading Pirate books, pretending to be pirates in the Ship, Pirate dancing, making faces and counting our Pirate treasure. We have made Treasure Islands in the Playdoh and searched for buried treasure in the Sand Area.

We are inviting parents to stay and plant on the first Wednesday back after the holidays. If you have a pair of gardening gloves that would be really useful as we will be weeding and planting some bedding plants outside in our Outdoor Classroom from 9:00 until 9:30am.

A polite notice...can you please make sure your child does not bring their own toys into nursery. They are toys to stay at home. We have plenty of toys to play with here in Nursery. We cannot take any responsibility for lost or broken items.

Thank you
