Making friends and exploring Nursery

Tuesday 18 September 2018

We’ve had a great start to the week in Nursery; most children have now had their first session and we’ve been really proud of how well they’ve all settled in. Children are beginning to make friends and it’s been lovely to see them playing alongside each other and starting to become involved in role play together. The home corner has been a hive of activity with children enjoying making cups of tea and some breakfast for Mrs Long.


In our Nursery garden, we’ve been collecting lots of apples from the trees.  Miss Backhouse, and a group of little helpers, used them to bake some delicious apple buns. The children helped to count out the apples, weigh the ingredients and mix them together. We enjoyed eating the apples and buns at snack time. Yum yum!


In the Early Years Foundation Stage, physical development is one of the important Prime Areas.  Children should be able to move freely with pleasure and confidence in a range of different ways such as slithering, shuffling, rolling, crawling, walking, running, jumping, skipping, sliding
and hopping.

As you can see, we’ve been busy developing our climbing and balancing skills already this week.
