Miss Toni & Miss Tracy attended Safeguarding training sessions.

Janet attended Early Years briefings.

Forest School sessions have started again – the children found freshwater shrimps, pond snails & tadpoles and enjoyed sausages & popcorn round the campfire.

Busy Bee children have been having their ‘Special Day’ bringing in photos of their family, home, pets & holidays to share with their friends.

Teachers from various schools have been visiting the Wise Owl children in preparation for staring school in September.

Wise Owls have been holding their parents’ meetings.

Ducklings have ordered new equipment including shape sorters, ICT and threading items.  We are currently in the process of ordering lots of equipment for the new Nursery & we have also had a new ‘den’ made.

We released the butterflies that the children have watched develop from caterpillars.

Work on our new nursery is progressing well with some rooms close to plastering level. Decisions are currently being made on the style of doors and lighting, and equipment needed for the dining room and kitchen. One of the outdoor areas has been fitted with artificial grass and the bi-folding doors from the new Busy Bee Room are looking spectacular.
