Nursery News May 2017

Policy of the month

Our policy of the month for June is Sun Care, a copy of which is shown on the hall notice board. The nursery is committed to ensuring that all children are fully protected from the dangers of too much sun. It would be much appreciated if children could arrive at nursery with sun cream on if it’s going to be a hot day with a high UV index.


This month on the ground floor we have continued learning about the Life Cycle. The Foxes have been exploring bugs and mini beasts, while the Rabbits have been learning about the life cycle of different animals as well as the life cycle of humans. We have been looking at our caterpillars regularly to see which stage of their life cycle they are in!

On the middle floor we have been having lots of sensory play! The Hedgehogs have been exploring the smells, tastes and textures of fruit and vegetables and have carried out food tasting and printing activities. Our older Hedgehogs have been learning how to walk on the walkodile and walked really well while on our trips to the Meadows Park!

Our care home visits are going really well. This month we have been drawing, playing jenga and making paper plate pandas with the residents. We have invited the residents to come to the nursery later this month to listen to the Foxes and Rabbits sing their summer show songs.

Parent Involvement

We would like to say a big Thank you to Christian (Emily’s Dad) for coming in and reading the Hedgehogs stories in German. The Hedgehogs seemed to enjoy listening to Christian’s stories!

Forest Schools

We are currently on our last block of Forest Schools before the Summer. Forest Schools will resume after the summer at Sciennes Woodland with the Foxes and younger Rabbits.


All staff recently completed a full day refresher infection control training course learning the most up to date infection control procedures.
