What a fun and super-busy first week back at Nursery! The children have all adapted brilliantly to our new drop-off routine, and everyone is trying hard to come in with a cheerful smile and a wave. We have focused on settling in and learning new routines this week. The Nursery Class children have learned our ‘Good Morning’ and ‘Goodbye’ songs, have practised answering to their names in the register, and have learned all about our ‘Give me 5’ rules – they might be able to tell you about them at home! They have also been practising good handwashing, and have learned another new song to help with this! All of the children have enjoyed exploring the nursery inside and out, and trying out all of the activities on offer – have a look at the photos for just a few examples of what they’ve been up to. We’ve even managed to squeeze in school photos and a fire drill – phew, what a busy week!
We have had a lovely week in the nursery, welcoming our Busy Bees old and new! It has been wonderful to see parents and children having fun in our garden again after so many very strange months. Our initial meetings have all gone very well, and we are so looking forward to having all of our children in for their proper nursery sessions from next week. Our first couple of weeks back will be spent settling in and exploring our surroundings, and practising our listening skills. Then we’ll be ready to embark upon our first topic of the year – We’re Going on a Bear Hunt! Don’t forget to bring your smiles!
