Welcome to the May newsletter! It has been a busy and exciting month with building work taking place in the nursery and a complete overhaul of the preschool garden.
This month, the children celebrated both International Space Day and International Astronomy Day. The children participated and engaged with lots of activities looking at planets, moon’s and the stars to help extend their learning about these two special days.
We have taken delivery of some lovely new resources across the nursery this month, promoting some wonderful activity set ups. All of the children love the new resources and these have been great for the children to practice turn taking and patience.
On Thursday the 20th May, the children celebrated International Bee Day. The children and staff dressed in yellow and black to celebrate. The children took part in lots of lovely activities across the nursery, looking at bees and their habitats in more detail.
Continuing the insect theme, the children in the toddler and preschool rooms have been very excited as they watch the caterpillars grow! Hopefully in time for Butterfly Awareness Day on the 1st June, we will have butterflies which we can showcase June’s newsletter.
In addition, this month the babies have been exploring textures using cornflour and water to create ‘gloop’ which they have thoroughly enjoyed.
What’s coming up next month
There is plenty to look forward to next month! The children will be celebrating Dinosaur Day at the beginning of the month as well as Fathers Day towards the end of the month. There is also World Environment Day where we build on the learning and activities of Earth Day, to promote recycling and how to look after the environment, which will tie in nicely to World Ocean Day later in the month. It is set to be a busy month!
Other important information
A reminder, we will be closed Monday 31st May for the late May Bank Holiday. We will open as normal at 7.45am on Tuesday 1st June.
