We have been very busy with our garden! Thank you to all of the boys and girls for helping with all of the planting. It was a BIG job! Also to our gardening group for ensuring that they are watered and looked after every day. Our ECO Group have also been very busy building compost bins and trying to reduce our recycling waste. Great work all round!

Goodbye Rumps

10th April 2019

We are very, very sad to let everyone know that Rumpole passed away recently. He was a HUGE part of our KingsWellies family and will be very sadly missed. Rumpole was such a character, always up to something! He LOVED coming to the nursery and LOVED being cuddled and petted by the children. He was also a Therapet for 3 years and really brought a lot of joy and laughs to the people around him. He was a really, really good boy and was best buddies with Ziggy.

Health and Wellbeing curriculum

10th April 2019

We are going to be extremely busy promoting our Health and Wellbeing curriculum. Things have been going really well this week so far in Health Month! We’ve made lots of smoothies, made healthy home bakes and have been working hard in our new PE classes. We also loved our healthy picnic at Hazlehead Park. Charley is VERY keen to start our own Wellies football team and Molly will be starting dancing classes with our older children soon. She will focus on jazz, ballet and modern dance. Exciting stuff! For more ideas on what you can do with your child at home to promote health and happiness, you can download lots of activity guides from www.ndna.org.uk/healthy
