Today we delivered Risk Assessment training to a lovely nursery team. We worked through the 5 steps to risk assessment, identified hazards and how to minimise risk, used real case studies to explore how risks could have been mitigated and considered the importance of staff deployment, team work and communication. Really enjoyed delivering this and I know the team will use this new knowledge to make a great impact on their setting.

Barts Busy Bees Merry-go-round
Think this says it all really. We want to say thank you with every last bit of our hearts for everything you have done and still continue to do for Louie and Phoebe. You don't just educate the children you take care of, you nurture them, comfort them and inspire them to be the best they can be. Keep being you because you're all amazing ❀
Can't actually believe it's Connors last day today, want to say a huge thankyou to all of the amazing staff for making Connors journey with you so much fun, he really thinks the world of you guys, as do I. I honestly don't think I could have found a better setting for him to attend. We will both miss you all so much ❀️
I just want to say a massive thank you to all of the ladies at bees. You all do a fantastic job and put in so much effort from the little things to making every graduating child a cap, you're all wonderful. Just know that everything you do is greatly appreciated. Thank you for making our little bee the best he can be πŸ’™
Still time to donate to our walk for autism week, wow look at those steps, link below 😊
Hi Bees, just wanted to leave a little review here regarding the REAL project (it won't let me leave another in the review section).

Louie and I have really enjoyed taking part in the project with Ella and Jess. I feel Louie has found it beneficial and has really enjoyed spending the time doing the activities. It's nice that there's a mixture of home visits and outings and I would definitely recommend taking part if parents get the opportunity.

Louie really enjoyed his visit to Santa, he enjoyed completing jigsaws at home with Ella and Jess and also reading his books and being read too.

Thanks for letting us take part.

Love Louie and Gemma ##
Fresh strawberries for pudding tonight ,🐝❀
Just wanted to leave this here for all you wonderful ladies at Bees. Phoebe came to you as quite a shy (I know, remember she was!) and not very confident little lady. Now she leaves confident, with a better vocabulary than me and having learnt so much from you all. She's proud to be a Busy Bee and Bees will always be a special place for all of us as a family. You work so hard to make all your little bees the best people that they can be and you should all be really proud of that. Im not very good with goodbyes, as I proved this morning. So I'm just going to say "see you later" and we'll be back in March with Louie. In the meantime keep doing what you do because you are the most amazing setting ❀🐝. Have a fab summer, lots of love, Gemma, Mike, Phoebe and Louie ##
To all you Amazing Queen Bees,

I want to thank each and every one of you for your hard work, patience and the comfort you bring to your little Bees. You help to nurture them and support them, whilst giving them the confidence to grow in themselves when us mommies and daddies aren't there to do it. The care and love you show is felt with each child, I'm sure. You all do an incredible job, for which I am incredibly greatful. Look forward to seeing you all in September- I know Lilly is going to miss you all ##. Have a great summer, you all deserve it. Lots of love πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—
Will there be anything special on when they break up on Friday? x
Thank you for a lovely and very emotional morning. You ladies work so hard to help all the children be the best little people they can be. I'll save some tears for next week xx

Friday update - Today has been wonderful. We looked at lots of different stories but our favorite was called 'Dont wake Mr Bear'. Some of our children love a den/hidey hole so we made our own. We used those fine motor skills when completing a few jigsaws, played with the dolls houses and small world too.In the art area we did some gluing and coloured some pictures.. we've been really busy! For snack we had toast or cereal. Have a lovely weekend. See you Monday.

Apologies for the late Thursday update.
Lots more storytelling today, we used puppets too to act out the story. We are revamping our book corner in nursery too, it'll look amazing and the children will enjoy books and storytime even more.
Denise was busy planting more seeds in the garden, the children will be watching carefully waiting for the little shoots to appear over the coming weeks.
See you tomorrow for funky Friday

Wednesday update, following on from our mark making in flour last week where one of the children said " we need flour when we make cakes" well that's just what we did!
We added all the ingredients together including chocolate chips as that's what the children requested when we made our shopping list. We hope they tasted amazing when you got them home.
More new faces joined us again today. It's great to make new friends on our nursery journey.
Snack was cucumber and banana today

Monday update.
We've been so busy today, welcoming more new little bees and showing them all the fun things we do. Carrying on from last week's interest of the birds and the sounds we hear when we're outside, we've decided to leave them some lunch in our bird feeders. We're going to check on Wednesday to see if they've visited our garden.
We've talked about sharing and being kind to each other at our circle time too today.
We've finished off this afternoon with some ring games. The hokey cokey is our favourite.
Snack today was apples and cucumber.
See you Wednesday

Friday update - Today we have been busy decorating some biscuits. It's Funday Friday so why not? πŸ˜‹ We used edible eyes and marshmallows to make our biscuits look extra yummy! We had lots of fun playing in the oats too. When we sprinkle them from up high it looks like snow πŸ˜ƒ For snack this morning we had toast and banana with a cup of milk or water. This afternoon we had crackers with yummy pink milk. Have a great weekend. See you on Monday πŸ₯°

Another busy, busy day πŸ˜€
We are working on those mark making skills by using paintbrushes with flour. Some children did a super job of writing there name.
Further on from this, we added some lemon juice to see what would happen. We squeezed and squeezed until all the juice came out. It smelt amazing πŸ‹
The children who missed the church visit earlier on the term had the chance to go over today with Dawn and Steph.
Lorna read us a story today about Charlie and Lola. It mentioned about having pink milk before bed so we decided to make some strawberry milkshake. It went down a treat πŸ˜‹

Monday update - On Thursday, one of the children suggested we got the soft play out so today we did just that. The children enjoyed jumping, building, crawling and lots more to work on those gross motor skills. They also chose to look at a few books and build with the magnetic Lego too. For snack they had grapes and apple or cereal. This afternoon they had crackers. See you Wednesday.

Wednesday update.... We were so excited about the snow coming down overnight that we just had to get out in it β˜ƒοΈ
We built our very own busy bee snowman who the children decided to name "snowy".
We found some twigs for his arms and used our threading toys for his face. We popped him a hat and scarf on as one of the children said he might get colder.
We finished off having a snowball fight......Lorna come off worse πŸ˜‚
We took a peek at it again this afternoon and noticed that it had got smaller so we talked about why that happened.
Snack was cucumber and banana today.
The children are hoping for more snow tonight so we can make a baby snowman tomorrow πŸ€žπŸ˜€

Our visit to St Bart's Church -

Today we visited St Bart's Church. Some of the children had showed an Interest in the church so we thought it would be nice to go and have a look. We spoke carefully about road safety beforehand as there was a road to cross outside of nursery. We also had a look at the scenery and saw some horses in the fields. The children noticed other things such as the clock, cars and spoke about what the weather was like. Once in the church, we looked at the beautiful pictures on the windows and the Nativity scenes from Christmas. The children thoroughly enjoyed this visit and we will be sure to do it again.

Wednesday update, another lovely day working on those motor skills. We've dodged the downpours and managed some time outside too. We finished off with exercises and stretches. Snack was banana and yoghurts

Monday update, a lovely day today doing some very tricky threading with zoo animal pasta but we kept trying until we managed it. We've also helped Denise make playdoh as well.
Some children last week have shown an interest in St Bart's Church and have been asking questions about what's inside, so to extend on from this, Lorna has contacted them today and asked if we can go and take a look around. On Thursday this week, we will be taking the children over in small groups to see inside the church and talk about all the wonderful things that go on there.

We've had a great start back to the new year. We've welcomed lots of new faces and are forming some great friendships. We enjoyed the soft play today, climbing under, over, through the tunnel and out the other end. We've blown the cobwebs away outside by burning off more energy.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and we'll see you Monday.

Thursday update- not many pictures today on our last day of term. It was lovely to see so many families come to join in our circle time today which during our recent inspection was quoted as "an awesome time of quality engagement from children". The way the children pick up our makaton signing makes us so proud and we hope you enjoyed it, so thank you to all that attended.


A whopping £120.00 was raised over our fancy dress days last month all to go to children in need. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed. This will make such a big difference to some children's lives ❀️

We had the most delicious Christmas dinner today. Thank you Lorna for all your hard work, it went down a treat. We munched on yummy vegetables, mash and roast potatoes, turkey and stuffing. Some of us tried cranberry sauce too. For pudding we had jam sponge with squirty cream. What a nice treat. We are now full and ready for a nap 😜

Thursday update - a lovely little salt dough gift from one of our little bees today. He told us how he helped mommy make it and had to put it in the oven until it was ready. Wonderful work 🐝 Some of our children decided today that our dinosaurs needed a home so that's exactly what we did with the blocks and blankets. We played a funny snap elf game with Denise too. Snack was toast today.

Wednesday update - Who would have thought you could have so much fun with a cardboard box? It took a little while to work out the best way to get in it without hurting ourselves. Then we had to solve the issue of getting out again. Great team work !!

Monday update, we've been busy again today with all our Christmas activities, we are practicing our songs ready to sing to you next week too. We managed some time outside although it was very chilly. We celebrated another birthday today of one of our little bees with some cake for snack. This morning, we had banana and grapes.

Photos from Barts Busy Bees's post 01/12/2022

Thursday update - We've put our motor skills to the test again today when we made playdough with Denise, and also experimented with magic snow. Lots of words like squashy, bumpy, soft and cold were heard from the children. We went outside with the magnifying glasses to look for the cheeky elf but couldn't spot it but we did manage to find one hiding in our Christmas tree on the stage. I wonder what he'll be upto tomorrow ?


Nursery has its very own postbox for those important letters and cards to Santa. If your child would like to write Christmas cards to Santa or their friends this year please ask a member of staff for a list of names and we will happily pop one in your child's bag 😊


Reminder - Parent consultations will be going ahead next week. If you would like a 10 minute appointment please speak to a member of staff to book a day and time.

Thank you 😊
