Bampton June News: Wold Wellbeing Week, Fairies and Father's Day

The Old Station Nursery Group - Creating Brighter Futures Together

We would like to say a big welcome back to the children who have returned. 

The children have adapted so well from having such a long time off; eager to see their friends and explore the activities available.   

June news

This week has been World Wellbeing Week and in nursery, we have been discussing our feelings and what makes us either happy or sad. Helping children recognise and understand their feelings is an important part of supporting their development. There has been a lot of change in the children’s lives recently, so it is important that we support the children and their feelings. Anna has been our yoga guru and has been showing the children some yoga which helps to improve posture, flexibility, strength, balance, coordination and motor skills. 

The Coral Room have been fascinated by the fairies that have appeared in the garden overnight and have been mesmerised about the magical goings that have been happening. I wonder what they will get up to next!

The Baby Room have enjoyed playing with the musical instruments and singing their favourite nursery rhymes.  They have taken a great interest with the technological toys and have enjoyed their time in the sensory room.   

For Father’s Day, the children made some lovely pictures of their daddys and grandads, and we had some brilliant reasons as to why they love them so much – the child’s voice can be so unfiltered! We hope you enjoyed seeing the pictures at the front of the nursery and had a brilliant Father’s Day. 

What’s coming up in July

Looking forward into July, we are expecting to welcome back the rest of our families. Unfortunately, our graduation for our school leavers will not be able to happen, however, we are hoping to arrange something special so the children can celebrate together!

We are hoping to be able to explore our environment again soon and be able to go on walks to the park and the shops. Many of the children have mentioned the ‘Corona Cobra’; we would love to visit the ‘cobra’ and let the children see all of the decorated rocks.   

Other important information

Now that the weather is getting hot again, can I please ask that you provide a sun hat and if possible, apply sun cream before your child attends nursery. Whilst at nursery, we provide sun cream, Nivea factor 50, and will apply when needed.   

The term finishes on Friday 17th July and this will be the last day for the term time only children. The nursery is open throughout the summer for the all year-round children. If you would like your child to attend any extra sessions throughout the summer, please do get in contact.  Autumn Term 1 begins on the 3rd September.   

If you have any questions or would like to discuss what changes we have made, please do not hesitate to get in touch. From all of us at the nursery, we would like to thank you for your continued support.
