Nursery News December 2017
Children in Need
Thank you to all parents and children who donated to Children in Need. We raised a total of £108 through our bake sale, PJ party and teddy bear picnic.
We have now completed our last week of Forest Schools for 2017. The children have had great fun going on the 41 bus and spending time exploring up at Blackford pond – especially on the muddy hill! We will be resuming Forest schools next year and plan to continue taking the Foxes and younger Rabbits to the woodland at Sciennes for shorter Forest Schools sessions and the older Rabbits to Blackford Pond.
We would like to thank Gesine (Alex’s Mum) for coming in and spending time with the Rabbits and Foxes to discuss her experiences at nursery as a child. The children enjoyed listening to Gesine’s stories and songs as well looking at her photographs. We compared how Gesine’s nursery was different to our nursery and discussed any changes the children may want to make to our nursery.
We would like to welcome Stela and Barbara to Meadows Nursery. Both Stela & Barbara will spend time on both floors during their induction.
