Sport Relief 2018
We have had a fabulous time in nursery this week for Sport Relief! The children danced non-stop for 1 hour at our Go-Go Disco on Thursday and have enjoyed lots of sporting challenges in the nursery garden. Thanks to your kind donations we have raised almost £50 for Sport Relief.
Introducing.... Free Flow Fridays
After February half term we will be introducing "Free Flow Fridays". As well as our usual active Friday focus we will be removing the chairs from the nursery so that the children can experience activities in different positions - kneeling, lying, crouching, standing. Benefits of a chair free classroom include increased core strength (essential for those early writing skills), improved posture and a reduction in childhood obesity. Most of all, we hope the children will enjoy the freedom of exploring their nursery environment whilst having lots of fun!

A Special Visitor!
We were all very surprised this week by the arrival of a visitor from outer space. There was a knock on the window and a friendly alien appeared - his spacecraft had crash landed in the nursery garden! The children were excited to see the smoke and lights and had some great ideas about how we could help mend the spaceship. The alien was so friendly that we invited him in for a special snack of tea and biscuits.
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.
