Hello and welcome to the nursery blog. It is our aim to update this at least twice a term.

The nursery blog provides an insight to nursery life and is a great way of sharing our learning, achievements and important information. Writing a blog entry can be time consuming, so we would like to draw your attention to the nursery twitter feed, @TCSoA_Nursery, which you will be able to see to the right of this page. You do not have to be a Twitter user to see what we tweet, as it is streamed here on the blog, but if you do have a Twitter account, please follow us for up-to-date tweets, interactive content and regular updates.

Posting photos and information for parents will be the sole purpose of the nursery twitter feed. If you wish to share personal information or have concerns, please arrange this through the usual communication methods of face to face, email and telephone.

Kind regards,

Vicky Ferguson

Nursery Teacher

Welcome to the new nursery year.

Four weeks have passed and we have been very busy in nursery. On return the children enjoyed exploring nursery rhymes through their play. The children have been singing the songs for Incy Wincy, Baa Baa Black Sheep, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Humpty Dumpty. This term we have enjoyed doing lots of activities to develop our fine motor skills.

We have been meeting all our new children and introducing them to our returning cohort. Our new children have been exploring all the different areas in the nursery and have helped contribute to the topics we are exploring. Following on from harvesting the food in our garden (which made lovely snacks) in the next few weeks we will be looking at farming; we have started to look at the different types of crops and the machines used to harvest them. One of our parents will be bringing in baby rabbits for us to look at and we hope to have a visit from the vet to find out about their job and caring for the animals.

Other children have been focussing on what makes a good friend and discussing the importance of sharing and being kind in our play. We have read a variety of stories and developed the Rainbow Fish story with those interested.

We are starting our ‘daily mile’. This initiative is not necessarily about all children walking a mile but being fully active for 15 minutes a day. This term we are starting with a variety of walks on campus.

Ally is back helping us learn some songs in Makaton for some of our future events. While you are out and about can you help us by finding signs of Autumn? We are looking for acorns, conkers and leaves that have fallen from the trees all to add to our loose parts play. Until next time….
