Google Meets

A big thank you to all of the boys and girls (and grown ups) who joined the key group google meets this week. All of the nursery team really enjoyed seeing all of your smiling faces and the chance to meet some of the new children who will be joining us as soon as we get back to nursery.

Grown ups – As we explained during the meetings, these first meetings were just a chat and a chance to see if Google meets would work for us and we hope that all of your children enjoyed the chance to see their keyworkers and some of their friends. If everyone is happy to continue with the meets we are going to try and arrange key group meetings every two weeks. For the meetings we will let you know the week before what we intend to cover in the meeting, with all activities staying simple and informal.

For the next meetings which will be held in the week beginning the 1st February, we intend to have a scavenger hunt where the children will be sent off to find simple items easily found at home.

As always your feedback and comments would be most welcome to try and ensure we are meeting the needs of everyone.

Small Acts of Kindness

This week we have talked a lot about looking after ourselves but it is super important to look after other people as well! The book in this video helps us understand why and gives us some examples of how we can look after eachother.

What did you think of the story?

How could you fill somebody’s bucket today?

Why don’t you try telling everyone in your house what you love most about them or draw somebody a nice picture?

Still not sure? Here is another lovely short story that might give you some ideas! Have a lovely weekend everybody!

Den Building Challenge

We love building dens in nursery! They can be a great place to go if you’re in the red zone, the blue zone or the yellow zone and want to get back into the green zone. Small cosy comfortable spaces help us to regulate our emotions and they’re lots of fun to build. 

Why don’t you try making your own using some bed sheets, a blanket or anything else you can think of lying around the house! Send in pictures if you can, we’d love to see your creations!

Keeping busy.

These nursery girls have been keeping busy by learning dances from across the world. Their favourite was the Samba from Brazil. They also had fun planning a family adventure to have a bonfire on the beach. They took a picnic of pizza and hot chocolate, then finished off by toasting marshmallows on the fire. Sounds amazing girls and I love your dancing outfits.

Food for fuel challenge

It is important for us to eat well and look after our bodies. Can you think of foods that might help us grow big and strong?

Mrs Banks has been busy making some healthy snacks and has taken pictures to give you some ideas to make your own. Have a go and send some pictures in if you can to show us your creations!
