La Jolie Ronde French Lessons

11th April 2018

We have been learning our numbers, our colours, the parts of our bodies, our names, how to greet our friends and all about Easter in FRENCH! We also had an egg hunt to celebrate our French Easter. Linda has got lots more planned for us in term 4 and we are growing in confidence every week. Linda also has a series of excellent books and CDs for sale. Please let us know if you would like to purchase any. This will help to reinforce our vocabulary at home too


Pyjama Drama

11th April 2018

We ALL got a chance to participate in some extra Pyjama Drama sessions this term. Kristine worked with us on the Chinese New Year, The Gruffalo, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Kindness. Our imaginations were running riot and we all had great fun. If you would like to sign up for extra Pyjama Drama sessions, please see Kerryn in reception.


Spring has sprung! Do you like our new Spring scene in reception?

11th April 2018

We helped Scott to design, build, paint and make our lego mountain scene. We learned how to paper mache and spent lots of time building the lego which was a tricky job but very good for our technologies skills. We love playing with the crane and the KingsWellies Express! We also helped Scott to build us our very own “den” outside. We love hiding in it and using our torches to tell scary stories.


RSPB – Early Years Habitat Explorer Sessions

11th April 2018

We really enjoyed having the RSPB visit us. We spent lots of time outside exploring the South Park and our playground. We learned how to identify habitats and found and identified LOTS of minibeasts. We have also made our own minibeast hotel – we hope to attract lots of residents! Other sessions will include exploring our green spaces using our five senses and making our own nature’s colours collection and creating our own piece of wild art. We will also be using lots of “wild words” when we are thinking about the journey of an animal. Lots of fun!

Marcia will be sending out a consultation document to you soon. We would like to know what you think of our snack and lunch provision. Please give us your feedback. We will be asking all of our children and staff for their favourites too. Many thanks.


Parental Consultations

26th February 2018

Vision, Values and Aims You will be aware that we recently carried out a review of our Vision, Values and Aims. We asked all of our stakeholders (parents, staff, children, friends, partner agencies) for their feedback on the content of our Vision, Values and Aims. We don't want these to just be words. They have to mean something and show our aspirations for our nursery. Please find attached our revised Mission, Vision, Values and Aims statement for your information. You can also find this up around the nursery, in our Prospectus and on our website. We would very much welcome your feedback and thoughts on this revised document.


Tempest Photographer

26th February 2018

I can’t believe that it is that time of year again! We have booked a photographer from Tempest to come to nursery on 29th and 30th March 2018. This will be an opportunity for your children to have their photographs professionally taken. You will be able to purchase these if you wish, through their sale or return policy. Tempest have an excellent reputation and are the main photographer used in most schools. More information will be sent home in due course.


Parental Consultation – Question of the month February 2018

26th February 2018

Each month we strive to self-evaluate our practice because we want to be a better nursery. We also need our parents to give us feedback. Our February 2018 question of the month comes from How Good Is Our Early Learning and Childcare and focuses on Quality Indicator 1.1: Leadership and Management. Our board will be changing shortly to show our March 2018 question of the month. We very much value your feedback.
