    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

    We have had a fantastic start to the half term. We have loved meeting and getting to know the new children and their families. We are learning about the children's interests and watching them make new friendships. They have been exploring inside and outside and have particularly enjoyed blowing bubbles outside, digging in the mud pit and conquering fears by climbing the wall.  We are very proud that many children are now taking themselves to the toilet independently and learning self-care skills such as washing hands and putting on coats.

    It would be really helpful to support their learning at home by using the 'tip and flip' method to put their coats on (see pictures below), and encouraging them to independently blow their own nose. Our focus this year is to promote language development so a great way to do this is to ask your child what they have been learning at school and please share this conversation on Tapestry. We are very excited for next half term, when we will be preparing for our Christmas concert and starting 'out and about' outdoor learning sessions as well as starting Friday reading mornings.
