The Royal Wedding
We celebrated the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in true British style-with a street party! And no royal wedding celebration would be complete without cucumber sandwiches and cake, and of course the group photograph.
The Highfield Cafe
We invited our families into the Nursery when it became a cafe. We took orders, fetched home-made buns and drinks, and collected payments.
Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud!
We loved getting muddy with Miss Lane and Mr Webster on Mud Day.
We made potions with mud and pot pourri in the mud kitchen. And felt the mud squelch between our toes!
Mud play has great therapeutic benefits for young children, and it’s a free resource. Go to communityplaythings.com and read their article about playing in marvellous mud.
Kung Hey Fat Choi!
The Nursery children enjoyed celebrating Chinese New Year. They took part in a workshop with Shuai, who taught them the Chinese Lion dance, waving ribbons and playing instruments.
The bedtime story session was lovely! Children enjoyed sharing books with their parents before their supper- milk and a chocolate biscuit. Back in Nursery we shared “Can't You Sleep Little Bear?” snuggled up by candlelight, and then we were ready for bed. Zzzzzzz...
Once again we went to help the Friends of Stand Road Park to plant daffodil bulbs. Everyone joined in to plant over 1000 bulbs! We'll be going down in the Spring to see them in bloom.
It's good to be back!
We're enjoying being back at Nursery with some old friends...and some new ones! We've been busy inside and out, having lots of fun at different activities.
