FANGTASTIC TIME FOR EVERYONE
November 02 2019
We would like to say a massive thank you to all everyone who attended our ‘Fangtastic Fundraiser’ last night. Another amazing turn out. I’m sure both children and parents had a Fangtastic time. The staff within the nursery have done an amazing job of organising this event and a lot of time and effort was put into it. It was really worth the wait to see everyone enjoying themselves on the night. Thank you to everyone who donated prizes for our raffle and helped us to raise the funds. This year the money raised will go towards purchasing new resources for the children. Thank you very much
EXPLORING THE PAINT WITH THE 2-3 ROOM
October 14 2019
The children in the 2-3 room were curious to experiment with the paint, using paint brushes to make clear marks on the paper. The children then extended their learning by exploring the paint on the table tops using only their hands and fingers. They spent time exploring the texture of the paint by spreading it all over, using their fingers to make patterns.
EARLY LITERACY IN THE 3-5 ROOM
October 10 2019
The children in the 3-5 room have been learning all about traditional fairy tales this month. They have been exploring ‘The gingerbread man’, ‘Goldilocks and the 3 bears’ and ‘The 3 little pigs’. They have participated in a variety of activities including baking their own gingerbread men, building the little pigs houses and eating porridge for snack. They have also spent time recreating the stories using the puppets and creating masks.
