We have all been very busy in the nursery garden potting seeds and planting out our flowers and vegetables. Thank you for all your kind donations for our garden - the children have loved tending to and watering the new plants and have learnt lots about where our food comes from.
SHARING A STORY
Thank you to all our parents and carers who come into nursery on World Book Day to share a story with the children. We had a great day in our pyjamas! Don't forget to use your World Book Day token to exchange for a free book.
Big Little Moments
We have been working with Betterstart Southend on our children's communication and language in nursery. Below is a link with some lovely ideas for helping children lean and communicate - why not start with sharing a story.....
The afternoon nursery children experienced their first yoga class this week with Tatty Bumpkin. The children did so well, listening to the teacher and learning some new moves. Tatty Bumpkin is a yoga inspired approach to helping our children become "bendy, giggly, clever and strong"
BENDY: develops flexibility through yoga
GIGGLY: enhances creativity with fun multi-sensory stories & original music
CLEVER: aids development with smart links to support the early years curriculum
STRONG: promotes wellbeing & relaxation
Thank you so much for your donations. We have been making good use of them to enhance our nursery environment. The children loved scooping out pumpkins this week and we have kept the seeds to grow our very own pumpkin patch! We also had a tea party with "The Tiger Who Came to Tea".
Parent Reading Sessions
Every Thursday, at the start of the session, we would like to invite you to change your child's book and enjoy reading with them. We have a wonderful selection of books for you to choose from and with your support we hope to foster a love of books in our children from an early age.
Embracing the Outdoors
The outdoor environment is a rich and natural space for learning. We spend lots of time outside in our nursery garden and would ask that children are dressed for outdoor activities as we go outside whatever the weather! Please remember to name shoes, coats, wellies etc.
We will be learning the RWI sounds each week and revisiting sounds previously learned. We will also focus on a number and colour each week.
