We noticed that our apple tree was bursting with juicy, ripe apples so we helped Miss Reynolds to pick them. We collected them in a basket and then sorted them into good and bad apples. We washed and tried some of the apples, they were very tasty. Some children then worked together with Mrs. Grange to bake an apple pie. Once it cooled down we tried some with our milk and at home time. It was delicious!
We also began to explore different textures and made collage pictures. We talked about how materials felt and looked. Some were squishy, some were smooth, some were hard and some were fury. We chose the ones we liked the feel of for our collage.
Over the last few weeks we have had lots of fun exploring our new nursery environment and making new friends. Take a look at the photographs below to see what we have been up to.
We are really looking forward to seeing our F1 children again and excited to meet our new children too.
Children that attended Nursery before the holidays and are returning to F1 will return to school on Monday 6th September and will attend morning sessions (Mon-Fri) 8:45am-11:45am. If your child attended F1 for 30 hours before the holidays they too will return on Monday 6th September at 8:45am and will need to be collected from the F2 door at 3:00pm.
For our new starters - There will be a welcome meeting on Tuesday 7th at 3:30pm.
Your child/ren will then come to our stay and play sessions for the rest of the week. Please see below drop off and pick up times:

From Monday 13th your child/ren will attend the full morning session everyday - 8:45am and will need to be collected at 11:45am.
Mrs Hale and Mrs Lees have been really busy during the holidays; setting up and creating a fantastic learning environment. They have done a brilliant job and we are sure our children will love exploring all the new resources and areas. We have added some photos for you to have a sneaky peek before next week.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon
We have had a very busy term filled with lots of fun learning so it was only fair to have a little treat on our last day in F1 together. During the morning Mrs Sung and the children noticed a hedgehog stuck in our outdoor area. Mrs Sung and Miss Pell put on some gloves and carefully untangled the hedgehog. The grown ups and children were worried the hedgehog may have been hurt so Miss Pell took the hedgehog to the Vets. The Vet called Miss Pell and said that the hedgehog was ok and needed to be put back where it was found so it could go back to his family. We released the hedgehog (we decided to call it Harold) and went back inside so it was nice and quiet. Later in the afternoon, we went back outside and Harold had gone back to his family!
What an exciting day we have had!
There will be lots of changes when we return in September; some children will stay in F1 and some children will start a new learning journey in F2. Mrs Hale and Mrs Lees will be in F1 and Miss Pell and Miss Reynolds will be the teachers in F2.
We hope you all have an amazing summer break and cannot wait to see you all in September.
