Welcome back after the Winter break. All of the children have all settled back into the nursery routines and are all excited to learn.
We have now started Forest schools on a Friday and our first session was on the 12th January. The children had a fantastic time exploring the school woodlands and building fairy dens using natural objects.
In the classroom we have been learning about New Year’s resolutions and the children have all made a wish for the year ahead.
We will now be focusing on weather and this week we have spoken about snow and ice. We will explore and investigate how ice melts.
In nursery it is important that the children have lots of opportunities to be independent. We encourage your children to try everything themselves first. It would be very helpful if you continue this at home too. Give your child opportunities to put on their own coat and shoes, encourage them to use a knife and fork at meal times and wipe their own noses and wash their own hands. These skills will allow your children to grow and have good self-care skills in preparation for school.
