The pre-school nursery children have been enjoying getting to know their classroom, the playground, the P2 children and Mrs Clarke. They also enjoyed a ‘Forest Schools’ adventure with Miss Cran. The final visit to P1 involved parents and carers and a pirate theme, they all had fun! The transition programme helps to ensure a smooth start to P1 in August. Thank you to everyone who has made this years programme such a success!
The Afternoon Nursery children took part in their first Nature Play Adventure on Friday morning. We walked along the old railway line to our site. We had lots of fun exploring the area, making dens, painting the trees and making mud pies! We plan to go every Friday morning so look out for more news of our adventures soon!
The morning nursery children recently went to ‘Forest Adventures’ with Ms Cran, Mrs Simpson, Mrs Carde, Mrs White, some parents and visitors from Sweden. They had a fantastic time exploring and learning. Over the next few terms, the morning children will have an opportunity to go back to the forest in small groups with Ms Cran and Mrs White to broaden their experiences. Thank you to our parent helpers for participating so well!
We arrived at our Forest School this week to a blanket of Bluebells, amazing. The children spent their first week investigating their woodland and foraging for goodies.
New equipment such as magnifying glasses, mini-beast pots and mini-beast identification sheets were introduced and the children were off! We found a variety of mini-beasts and the children ensured that all insects were placed back in their habitats safely.
Some of the children found Jack’s Beanstalk and tried to climb up!
As ever the hammock was very popular and its use encouraged co-operative play and turn taking.
The afternoon Nursery group are going to be going on lots of adventures in the woods as part of ‘Nature Play’. This week Ros came to visit and told the children about what they will be doing. They are excited about finding treasures, making things, listening to stories and swinging in the hammock!
