This term we have been doing lots of exiting things…
One of our children had a new puppy and this lead to many discussions on pets we have at home or pets we would like to have.

Lisa brought in her 3 pugs, Jo brought in her rabbit and Yuliya brought in her hamster.
We converted the home corner into a vets, purchased a vet game for the children’s tablet and read lots of stories about how to care for animals. Next term we are hoping to have some mini beasts and reptiles visit us.

We celebrated the royal wedding by having a huge party on the Friday before it and we made lots of fun art and crafts like crowns and baking “wedding” carrot cupcakes. We made crowns, talked about the union jack flag and had a party. We also learnt to sing “God save the Queen”.

We have been looking at oral health as part of the further money received from the healthy living grant. We have been showing the children how to care for their teeth and how to brush them properly. We will be handing out 3 minute sand timers along with a children’s teeth leaflet from the oral health foundation.

Next term we will be having a summer salad workshop for the parents to make a healthy salad for their Childs lunch that day.

We are looking forward to using the new school obstacle course as the children love to explore the school grounds playing on the big field, visiting the secret garden and using the school playground.

The nursery garden is coming along very well and we are looking forward to all the vegetables being ready to pick in June. As well as courgettes, tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots we have been selling strawberry plants and peas which has become very popular with the parents.

We have also been looking at British values and how we can incorporate them even more into our play and activities. A huge display has been put up for the parents to see how we embed the British values in the nursery.

An E-safety display for the parents was put up also as children’s safety online is becoming more of a concern in our growing ICT world.
