July news

The children really enjoyed their time in the village hall, we created a lovely large learning environment for them to explore and they also enjoyed going for lots of walks around the village; looking at the horses, trains and going up to the field at nursery looking at the progress being made and asking the builders what they were doing.  

We have now moved back to Alvechurch to an exciting new environment for the children. We have lots of new resources which the children are having great fun exploring. The children have all come back to nursery with a smile on their face and have been excited to meet up and play with their friends again. 

The 0-2s have loved the light up shapes which they have found very relaxing at sleep time. The 2-3s have really enjoyed exploring the new train set with track and the large water tray with soapy water where they added sea creatures and enjoyed washing them. The 3-5s were very excited with the fairy house they have had in the tough tray. It is an all-natural resource and they have found different things to do with it. They have made dens for the fairies and made a camp fire rubbing some of the sticks together to make the fire!  

What’s coming up in August 

Unfortunately, we are losing our older children as they are slowly leaving to go to school. We are going to have a socially distanced picnic for them to be together one last time as a group.  

The week commencing the 10th of August is National Afternoon Tea Week so we will be asking the children about what they think this includes and talking about how we can make this healthy. We will then enjoy an afternoon tea with a menu the children will have helped to create. 

Other important information 

Can we please remind parents that we need sun hats and creams for the children to be able to go outside and enjoy the sunshine.
