September news

What an interesting month! We’ve had many highs and some slightly stressful times which we would like to thank you all for your support with.

New government guidelines have meant that we have needed to add some extra precautions, such as wearing face coverings whilst moving around the nursery and whilst handing over at the door. Again we would like to thank you for your support and cooperation in wearing the face coverings also. 

The children, as always, have been taking everything in their stride and continue to attend with smiles and are excited for the day ahead. 

Preschool have been reading ‘When my granny went to market’ and from this, they have explored new ways of saying hello. They have done this by learning the words in different languages, such as Gutentag, Ni Hao and Konnichiwa. They have created a display where they have made kites which in the book, are from Japan. The children have also made masks, which in the book are from Mexico. Preschool have also been busy racing the new remote control cars, learning how to use the controller to keep the car steady and on track. 

The Toddlers have been playing with the new small world resources, creating play with the fairies and gnomes. The children have been baking creating some yummy vegan cupcakes so that they could all enjoy them together. 

The Babies have shown an interest in water play this month, filling and emptying containers and also washing the animals. Lots of different language was encouraged, such as “splash and animal sounds like “baa baa” and “moo moo. The children have played with water outdoors, with a favourite activity being mark making with the water. The children have also been exploring paint as they created Autumn paintings, moving the paint with their hands and different tools. 

What’s coming up in October

We love October at nursery! We have lots of autumnal activities planned and there is, of course, also Halloween at the end of the month – we can’t wait. Please remember as we get further into Autumn to check that your child has wellington boots, puddle suits and warmer clothing so that we can ensure they can still go outside on the colder days
