Tomorrow all of the rooms are going to have a chance to do some baking (there's fruit cake planned, samosas, oaty cookies, kebabs, chapattis and more).

We've also had a special visitor pop in to see us- Lauren with baby Tony! Lauren is looking very well and the children loved seeing her little baby.

The Secret Life of 4 Year Olds

This was really interesting, if anybody missed it and wants to catch up. Fascinating to sit back and just watch children play and work things out for themselves!

Meanwhile over in the Honeypot room the children were enjoying working together to complete a dinosaur floor puzzle. Afterwards they clapped their hands in excitement as they finished the puzzle, and were talking about how big the dinosaur was compared to the little toy dinosaurs on the table, they pointed out the dinosaur's tail, nose, eyes and other body parts, and laughed as they shouted out their best dinosaur roars!

Last night we enjoyed an amazing team Christmas party- a night out at an Italian Masquerade Ball in Milton Keynes! There were some amazing performances, a delicious 3 course meal and dodgems and a casino to keep everybody well entertained. It was a great party to mark the end of a great year that has seen the nursery go from strength to strength. Thank you to everybody for coming and making it such a brilliant night! (Please feel free to add your photos so we can all look back and remember the night without having to rely on my not-so-great photo-taking skills)


The photographs have arrived! Please ask in reception if you have ordered one of your child for Christmas

Now that the wet weather is upon us could children please be provided with a pair of wellies and waterproof coats for outdoor play.

Especially at this time of year it is really important that children can continue to enjoy lots of outdoor play and learning experiences. As long as they are wrapped up warm and have suitable footwear it is perfectly safe, and very beneficial, for them to be outdoors.

Watch out, Mary Berry, you have nothing on our Tweenies...

Our Tweenies had so much fun in the mud-kitchen today. They collected water from the water vat, watching how they could control how fast the water trickled out using the tap, and using jugs and cups to transport the water in.

Some of them delved into the mud-pile, using small shovels and rakes to mix up the dry mud and collect it into saucepans to place in the ovens. And the ovens were a real source of amusement as the children turned the dials and pretended to turn up the heat.

One of the children added water to a tray of dry mud and observed how the texture changed. After emptying it onto the floor a group of them took it in turns to roll it out using a makeshift rolling pin.

Another of the children was collected grass "chips" and putting them into the bowl to go in the oven.

Master bakers in the making!


We will be handing out the Bookstart Treasure Bags to all of our Preschool children today and tomorrow. Inside the packs will be a selection of stories, rhymes and songs for you to enjoy sharing with your children.

If you aren't here this week please don't worry- we will save a Treasure Bag for you to collect next week!


What fantastic imaginations children have!

This afternoon I was lucky enough to stumble upon some of our preschool children concocting a horse-making potion, which arose from a game of Cinderella. After doing all the chores, including cleaning the playhouse and washing down the tables and chairs, they fed the horses which then managed to escape!

So what did they do? Decide to make a horse-making potion, of course!

Each child in the group came up with something special to add to the potion. There were frogs, snails, carrots, and one little boy even came up with the idea of adding a helter skelter. (After Amanda asked him to put it in the mixture, he looked at her with a bemused face and answered, "Well I don't have it with me!" as if she was being totally ridiculous!)

They then went around the group to talk about how their addition would help the potion, and came up with the idea that the frogs would help the horses be able to jump, and the carrots would feed them.

The game carried on for so long as the children went wild with their imaginations and took turns in stirring the potion with their hands and pushing it all in using their feet. The helter skelter proved particularly difficult.

Amanda used the activity which had all the children captivated, to talk about shape and size, quantities, numbers and forces. The children were encouraged to listen to each other and take turns to contribute, valuing each other's ideas and being given the confidence to share their own thoughts.

The group gradually grew, from the original 2 children along with Amanda, to a sizeable number of boys and girls, younger and older children together.

And as much as the children enjoyed themselves, it was also great fun just standing back and listening!
