An amazing start to Term 1!
Pebbles have had the most amazing beginning to our new year. We have welcomed back old and new friends, and everyone has settled beautifully. The Nursery has benefited from a brand new floor - visit our ‘take a tour’ page to see - it makes cleaning so much easier, which has been very important over the last few months!
As Pebbles have settled, the adults have been immensely proud of their understanding to keep their distance when required and their knowledge of hand washing. Sanitising and washing forms very much a large part of our day to day routine and practice within Pebbles, with all children coping remarkably well.
Whilst welcoming everyone back, the children have enjoyed exploring the inside and outside classrooms - they have used their fine and gross motor skills to manipulate toys, and used creative language whilst getting messy in sensory flour or foam. Mrs Pallett has taken all their photos, and Pebbles are trying hard to recognise their pictures and their name cards. Last week we created our very own self portraits using natural materials for Art Week which helped us to think of similarities and differences amongst our group.
Once settled, our focus is gradually moving now to counting and building upon literacy. Our attention skills for stories and rhymes are increasing along with our turn taking.
Hopefully all parents are finding seesaw a beneficial way to stay in touch and join in their child’s learning and development. We thank you all for your continued support and co operation during Covid. Please explore our new website and let us know your thoughts!
Our learning and play so far is below, please enjoy looking through.
