Early days in Nursery

We have had such a busy time in Nursery.  Some children were returning after the summer, looking as if they had grown like sunflowers.  We have also welcomed many new starters who have settled down to enjoy their day.

 

These first weeks are so important.  The children are getting to know us and the other children, learning about the routines and engaging in active play.

 

                   

 

We use nature as a starting point for a lot of our work throughout the year, so have been looking at the changes that Autumn brings.  The children’s interests also help us to plan a curriculum that motivates them.

 

              

 

They are now exhausted and ready for a break.  Enjoy half term, everyone.  We’ll see you after the holidays!
