Today we’re talking about GRAPES! 🍇

It’s a well known fact that whole grapes are a dangerous choking hazard for babies, toddlers and young children!

The size and shape of grapes means that they can completely plug a child's airway. The tight seal produced by the grape's smooth surface makes them difficult to dislodge with standard first aid techniques.

Young children are particularly vulnerable to choking on a grape because:
• They don't have a full set of teeth and are still learning to chew properly.
• Their swallow reflex is still developing.
• Their airway is very small.

This handy image shows just how to slice them so that they are safe to eat - slice in half lengthways and ideally into quarters. NEVER in half widthways!

Same goes for sausages, olives, cherry tomatoes and large blueberries. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!

[08/26/21]   Can parents please check their Tapestry account to see the parent letter, thank you.

A great activity to keep little ones busy this week!

It's the last week of The Nenthead Summer Treasure Trail 🦔🐾🌲The sun is (supposed to be ..) going to shine & there is fun to be had.
Use your special binoculars to search high and low to find all the cheeky animals☀️
Pop into The Hive at Nenthead or Nenthead Community Shop & Post office to grab a special treasure bag.
Suggested donation of £3.00
Every single penny we raise will go towards funding a lovely new playpark ❤

What a great idea!

Have you stickered your school shoes yet?
Cut a sticker in half and pop one half in each shoe for kids to match them up when putting their shoes on, so they get them on the right feet.
This sticker was a foam one from Hobbycraft and lasted nearly the whole school year!
They don’t need to know the whole alphabet or be able to count to 100, but being able to dress independently is incredibly helpful when they go into a classroom so this is ideal to help support them with that. 😊 #FiveMinuteMum #StartingSchool #BackToSchool
