Hi

I was meaning to email last week but I totally forgot. People are so quick to email when there is a problem but people don’t bother emailing to say something nice so here it is. Can I just say how beautiful the toddler room looks. It’s is so stimulating, inviting and engaging for the children. I visited 18 nurseries over summer term to meet our new intake and I am so happy to say that my daughter goes to the best nursery I have seen. Not only is the room amazing the staff are so friendly and approachable. Peyton is extremely upset when I drop her off at the min and they are great with her talking to me about ideas of how to get her more settled. Your all doing ana amazing job.

Thanks

At Storytimes we have enjoyed a fun filled summer together! 🌞

We have all enjoyed being back together learning and having fun everyday, so much so we decided to end summer with some fancy dress themed fun!

We started off as pirates and embarked on a big adventure to find treasure. We found coins and gems and practised our counting together. We all looked amazing and did our best pirate impressions! Ahooy Matey!

We then ended with a beach themed party all dressed up in our beach party outfits! We danced, explored and even made our own yummy smoothies. Some of our Preschool children also enjoyed their last day together before they start their own new adventures in big school.

A BIG welcome to our "Pre-school Committee" 🤩

Each week, four of our fabulous children will be selected as the committee members for the whole week! .... How Exciting!! The children will have a different topic each week to discuss with their keyworkers.

This weeks topic is "What Would you like to see in Pre-school"

The children invited Miss Louise to their meeting today, they discussed between themselves whilst enjoying a lovely pot of warm milk and cake in their meeting room exactly what they would like to see in the classroom.

The outcome of their meeting today in the children's very own words is:

⭐️More Music in the classroom
⭐️A lot more money in the home corner
⭐️A farm and planting area
⭐️Houses in the classroom
⭐️Different building blocks in our construction area
⭐️Sand pit outside

The children have enjoyed implementing all of their awesome ideas this afternoon! we cant wait to have a meeting tomorrow to discuss how this went.

Just a little snippet of some of our activities that have been going on this week in Preschool :)

Owl Babies has been on our Story Scribing this week and the children have loved being the characters, especially baby owl shouting "I WANT MY MUMMY!!" :)
Have you read this story at home? its one of our favourites.. why don't you add it as your bedtime story this weekend :) to enhance your child's Literacy skills.

Next weeks Letter of the Week is "m" … If your stuck with how to sound this out ask your child to show you :) (we have recapped on this one before) why not get one step ahead and tell your child to hunt down an object that begins with this letter and send it over to us on your child's learning book :)

We hope you have a lovely weekend … Stay safe and we will see you next week ! :)

Summer smoothies🍓🍌

We began by washing our hands independently, using soap to remove the germs and drying them off. We cut up some strawberries and bananas in the garden, using a knife in our dominant hand to cut the fruits into pieces with some help from Jo and discussing how the fruits grow and where they come from.

Once all the fruit was cut up and ready we went inside to wash our pots using a cloth, we enjoyed carry out small tasks to help while talking about different jobs we help with at home.

With clean hands, cutlery and plates we began to add our ingredients to the blender. We added frozen yoghurt, milk along with the strawberries and bananas we had sliced. We used good pouring and scooping skills with control to do this while discussing healthy choices and which fruits give us the most energy for the day.

When all the ingredients were in the blender, Jo explained we needed to be careful, helping us assess our own risk safely. We pushed the button once the lid was on and watched the magic happen.

Yum yum, delicious. We drank every drop, cheers everyone🥛🍴

Preschools Coffee Shop...

The Preschool children have been really interested in transporting the home corner resources into the sand tray making tea and coffee with the teapots, so we transformed our Sand area into a coffee shop and added further resources for them to explore their imagination either further!

What fun we have had... the Preschool room has smelt like Costa Coffee all day :)

Fizzy Painting...

Toddlers had fun exploring the fizzy paint today in the glorious sunshine, as they mixed the different ingredients and watched how it changed and went all "fizzy"

The children spoke about the different colours they could see and they got mixed up :)

Following the Prime Minister’s statement last night confirming the relaxation of restrictions we are now awaiting detailed Government guidelines on how this will be applied to nursery settings.

Once we have received these and had time to digest their implications we will issue further details and revise procedures where appropriate.

Our priority remains the wellbeing of our nursery team and the families we support.

Toddlers story of the week is "Simons Sock" The children chose this story as its one of their favorites! We hung our own socks on the washing line and had so much fun going on a sock hunt!

What's your child's favorite story at home? 💙

Pre-School children had a blast this morning as they worked together to find the hidden dinosaur eggs! The children used their fantastic maths skills to count all of tiny eggs and put them in order of size.

Babies & Tinies Mr Chocolate Tea Party

#worldchocolateday2021 🌏🍫

Photos from Storytimes Private Day Nursery and Pre-school's post 09/07/2021

Our story of the week in the toddler room is: The Tiger Who Came To Tea🐯☕️

The children reenacted the story with tea pots, cups and other filling and emptying utensils, making tea for the tiger with our brightly coloured tea and sparkling sugar.

They used great control when pouring the tea, transporting from cup to jug and feeding the tiger, "yum yum". We explored the different scents of our flavoured tea bags and various flowers we picked ourselves from the garden🌸🌼

"Be careful, it's hot" some of the children said, blowing the water to cool it down recognising different temperatures and expressing their imagination.

Several children repeated phrase from the story "I think I'd better go now ", "thank you for my tea" as the recalled information from the story and acted this out through play.

Sausage and Peas came out to say hello while some of our friends tidied their house and gave them fresh water and food.

The toddlers gave them some snacks and lots of affection🐹
