Our first newsletter- here is a copy of the newsletter sent out on Friday 21st September.

week 3- This week we have had great fun looking at the weather by making kites to fly on the rather windy days we have had this week and collecting rain in pots when we had a storm. We have been looking at shapes in the maths area and we are working on recognising our names every morning so please don't do our names for us! we have enjoyed singing counting songs this week and learning even more nursery rhymes.

Week 2 10/9/18. This week we have welcomed more children to our nursery and started to get into a routine. We drew pictures of our faces and will next week use a range of different materials to add more detail. We learnt some new counting songs and Nursery Rhymes and enjoyed a story at the end of each session. Well done everyone for such a lovely week and adjusting into Nursery life so well.

Here are some of the exciting things we have been up to already on our first week back welcoming old and new members of the Nursery.
