Dear Parents/ Carers
Chinese New Year
Just a quick reminder about our event day on Friday (16th February) where we will be celebrating Chinese New Year. We would like the children to enjoy the day of activities by dressing in Chinese clothing, red/ gold clothing, or as it is the year of the dog maybe some little doggies. The staff put a lot of effort into the event days, dressing the nursery and themselves to support the event and they really enjoy seeing the children make the most of the activities and taking part in the day. Just a few of the activities will be making lucky money pockets, decorating a Chinese dragon to take part in a parade and trying Chinese cuisines.
Today the children will be taking part in Shrove Tuesday by tasting various pancakes at snack times along with taking part in pancake obstacle courses to help develop their gross motor skills.
Our Blossom Tree
We would like to see a few more leaves filling our blossom tree with activity ideas, thank you to all the parents and children who have contributed so far we love hearing your feedback.
Baby Unit Outside Play
The babies can now enjoy more outside play under a new lovely wooden shelter, even when it is raining. The outside area is going to be developed to a similar theme as the main nursery bottom garden area, with a focus of large sand, water and block play with lots of den building.
Collecting from the Tweenies Room
If you have a child in the Tweenies' Room you must go into the room on collection to get feedback notes from the staff. Please do not stand outside in the corridor as this can make it difficult for other parents and staff that are trying to answer the door.
We will be sending out the confirmation slips with the days you have been allocated in the next few days, these events take a lot of organising to ensure staff are deployed appropriately to maintain ratios. If you have not yet returned your slip please contact the office today.

Parents/carers if you have received a leaf 🍃 to fill in and place on our tree, please could you fill them in as soon as possibly to help us blossom even further in our setting 🌳 we love to hear what you and your children would like to see more of.

Parents, we soon have our ‘Nursery Rhyme Day’ event coming up on Tuesday 23rd January. Here is just a few ideas for you to think about when dressing up your child/children!
9 January 2018 - 3:53pm
Each group has explored lots of fantastic opportunities today outside. Baby unit went over to the green area and collected leaves and twigs to add to their tactile. They then further enhanced their provision by following through with a creative activity. Tweenies got messy as they painted using different tools, whilst other children walked along the stones listening to the sound their feet were making. Toddlers challeged their children to take risks as they balanced along the wooden plank. They created a wet sand tactile, whereby the children generated ideas and made marks. PreSchool encouraged the children to use their imaginations as they built castles, and used the space around them to role play. They also prompted the children to recall by drawing their own ideas. What a lovely day, full of quality activities and plenty of learning opportunities!
