Congratulations to many of our nursery children for their 100% attendance. Nursery children received, certificates, weekly stickers and prizes. Excellent attendance at school is important to allow your child to fulfil their potential and for them to have the best possible start in life. Below are just some of the reasons why it is so important children attend school:  To learn  To have fun and make new friends  To understand responsibility  To experience new things in life  To develop awareness of other cultures, religion, ethnicity and gender

This week nursery celebrated international day by learning about each other’s national dress, flags and cultures. Thank you to the parents that have performed a traditional dance to the nursery children, who enjoyed the performance.

What a lovely visit from the farm Nursery had this week as part of their Farm Topic Hook. Children saw lots of different animals, learnt about their offspring, held some guinea pigs, rabbits and chicks and even had a go at feeding some lambs and a donkey. Nursery children behaved fantastically around the animals and the nursery team were very proud!

Thank you to all the parents/carers that have attended our nursery book fair and we hope you enjoy reading with your children.

Children in nursery got a large container, washed it together, filled it up with water and watched the ducklings swim inside it!

The children in Nursery visited Sainsbury’s this week to buy porridge and different ingredients that they would like to have in their porridge. They also decided that it was not too hot or too cold but it was just right, so they ate it all up just like Goldilocks!
