What is happening this term?

Spring 1 2020

NB Nursery will be closed Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th to enable all staff to renew their Paediatric First Aid Qualification.

All staff attended 12 hours of training, and successfully passed a written and practical test at the end


Our book this term is Owl Babies, by Martin Waddell, which tells the story of 3 baby owls as they wait for their mother to return from hunting. The text provides the background for our focus on supporting children to develop resilience and self-confidence. 

We will be facing new challenges, both physical and mental, and supporting each other to have a go. We will be exploring feelings, naming them, talking about how they make us feel and how to deal with those that are tricky. 

We are going to find out about owls, where they live, what they eat, how they fly. We will try writing with feathers and create owl inspired art. We are going to go bird watching with real binoculars, though we might not find any owls! 

This term we will also find out about Chinese New Year, and continue to work on increasing our total in our Make £20 grow challenge.

We have weekly access to the hall for games sessions, visits from the book bus every 3 weeks, use of the forest area and our weekly Monday songtime with our families. 

New this term, we will be sharing our Makaton sign of the week with our families, to support communication.

To follow, details of this term's Come and Play and Open Evening events.

Happy New Year to all. We look forward to seeing all the children on Tuesday 7th January.
