Nursery News April 2017
We have had a busy month with lots of spring activities and trips! The Rabbits had a great time at East links on their Spring Trip. Thank you to the parents who came along to help out! We all really enjoyed watching our Living Eggs hatch, all ten eggs hatched giving us 5 girls and 5 boys! The Hedgehogs, Foxes & Rabbits also had lots of fun taking part in Easter crafts and our Easter egg hunt in the garden, and they did really well finding the hidden eggs.
Zoolab came to visit the ground floor this month. We sat really well and listened about all the creatures, we learnt about their life cycle, where they live and what they like to eat. We also got to see and touch (if we wanted to) a snake, toads, giant snails, a tarantula & big cockroaches! All of the children were very good at remembering to wash their hands afterwards!
Forest Schools at Sciennes Woodland
The younger Rabbits & older Foxes had lots of fun exploring the woodland at Sciennes. We had a great time looking for bugs with our magnifying glasses, practicing our balancing on the logs and building dens and swings using tarps and rope. Our next block of Forest schools will include the older Rabbits at Blackford Pond.
We are pleased to announce that Katie Gibson has been appointed Deputy Nursery Manager. Katie has been with Meadows since mid 2015 and has spent most of her time on the first floor with the younger children. Katie will now be spending time on the ground floor to continue to develop her knowledge of this age group.
We will sadly be saying goodbye to Irene at the start of June as she is moving back to Spain. We would like to thank Irene for all her very good work during her time at Meadows.
