One of our Dads who is a Dentist, came to Nursery to talk to the older children about his job.  He counted our teeth and showed us how to brush our teeth properly. (please see Facebook).


We had a visit from a consultant from Early Start, Bolton Council. She was looking at how well we make provision for children progressing and achieving. She was very impressed with all the work we do in this area and gave us a glowing report.

We celebrated the Royal Wedding with the older children. We had our own Megan and Prince Harry and we had a tea party. (please see Facebook).

Some staff attended a meeting to discuss plans for our new Wise Owl Room in Phase Two.
Wise Owls held a Bike Week when they all brought their bikes to Nursery and rode on the paths nearby.
Wise Owls also enjoyed caring for some caterpillars which eventually turned into beautiful butterflies.
Janet attended training on GDPR.
Some of the school teachers who will be taking our Wise Owls in September came to visit.
Miss Tracy and Miss Sarah went up to Purl Meadow to get it ready for all our summer Forest School sessions.

We purchased a number of items of equipment including a sensory den and other sensory items for Ducklings and a wicker den for Butterflies.
