Don't forget it is Safari day tomorrow, the staff have done a fantastic job of theming the nursery. The children will be learning lots about different animals you may find on safari and their environments. Encourage your child to join in the fun by helping them dress as their favourite animal they may find on safari🐯

Wanted…

A Nursery Apprentice for a group of adorable children.

If you want this choice position, have a cheery disposition!
Lovely smiles, always.
Play games, all day.
You must be kind you must be trusting,
Fairly organised and good at dusting.
Take us on outings, play football,
sing songs, tell jokes.
Never be grumpy or sad,
never give us foods that are bad.
Love us as a son or daughter and help us to explore with water.
If you don’t tell us to be quiet,
we will never give you cause to riot.
We won’t hide your spectacles so you can’t see,
put toads on your seat or pepper in your tea.
Hurry quickly.
Many Thanks Sincerely
La Petite Academy

Today the Preschool children will be talking and learning all about football. Where and when the game was first invented, looking at old football kits which were worn when football was first introduced to modern day kits. What material a football is made from and also talking about what skills are needed for the game. They will have the opportunity to have a quick peek at the England game this afternoon if they wish to during our free flow session. They will also be able to hear the game on the radio, where we take the opportunity to talk to the children about the commentators job and how radios work to transmit information.

Oh dear, it looks like we will have to wait a few more weeks for the new corridor carpet. There has been a small problem of the wrong colour tiles being fitted!!!! So we are left at the moment with a mismatch but they have assured us they will try and rectify it as soon as possible!

Our visit from these little 10 day old chicks, the children enjoyed holding them. There was lots of language skills used, introducing words like hatching to the younger children and learning lots of knowledge about the world by talking about how they grow and what they eat.

What a busy day we have had at nursery today. A group of Preschool children visited Blagreaves Library for a story and activity session with Chloe Inkpen, who is an illustrator of children's books and whose father wrote the Kipper series (Mick Inkpen). We have been celebrating the Queen's birthday, by decorating cakes and making cucumber sandwiches for afternoon tea and we have also had a visit from 10 day old chicks which all the groups got to hold or stroke.....photos to follow soonπŸ₯
