Happy New Year to all the nursery parents and their families! We hope you had a fantastic Christmas and New Year. We have enjoyed looking on Tapestry and seeing how busy you have all been in the holidays. Thank you to all the parents and carers who came to watch our Christmas concerts. We were all so proud of the children as they sang in front of such a large audience!

Last term we started our ‘Family Music’ group. A big thank you to all the parents who attended these sessions. The children had so much fun singing with their grown-ups and we hope you have continued to practise these songs at home. Singing is benefical to children’s speech and language development at this crucial age. We will shortly be inviting the next set of parents to take part in this experience this half term.

Last Friday it was great to see so many parents participating in activities in the Nursery with their children on Science day. The children were excited to share their learning with their parents both indoors and outdoors. Here are some of the activities that the children explored:

- Planting potatoes outside

- Floating and sinking in the water tray

- Discovering sea life in the ‘Gelli Baff’

- Searching for bugs in the compost

- Mixing colours with pipettes and food colouring

- Investigating magnetic and non-magnetic materials
