What's going on in Butterflies..


We would like to welcome Valentina Kendall, Elijah Mansey, Emerson McArthur Stead, Alice Mould, Leo Stuart, Brody Wickes and Tyler Smith to Butterflies room. And we would like to say goodbye to Bethany Beresford and Esme Harrigan.


What we have been learning

With the continued focus on Speech and Language and Physical Development in the Butterflies room continuous Learning areas are enhanced daily to give children a rich learning experience. Please speak to your child’s key worker if you have concerns around Speech and Language or Physical Development as we can give you ideas for how to support your child at home.  Our Family Photo Board has been such a big success within the room that the staff have decided it’s going to be a permanent display within the room, the board will be regularly updated with new photos. If you have a photo of your family we would love to see them.  You can forward them via email, and we can print them for our display.  Pictures can be sent to Sharon.winters@btconnect.com  They are an invaluable tool for ensuring children feel included, especially those who struggle to communicate verbally and a good conversation starter.   


The children have shown an interest in Pirates this term, so the staff decided to extend play and learning, the children have had lots of messy plays and roleplay activities available to them that have involved Pirates.


In the upcoming months Butterflies will be celebrating the season Spring, this will include St David’s day, St Patrick’s day, Mother’s Day, Easter and St Georges day, these will help support the children’s learning of different cultures and religions. This will include a range of arts and crafts activities and food tasting experiences. If you have a festival, you wish us to celebrate then please speak to your keyworker. We will always welcome suggestions to enhance children’s learning experiences.  We also support charity events such as ‘Children in need’ which your child may wish to participate in.  Posters will go up around the nursery giving you plenty of notice.


The Children’s Story book of focus is ‘Pirates love underpants. The children have been busy creating Artwork to go towards our featured board, the children have enjoyed linking this story to their pirate themed roleplays and messy plays. If you have this story book it would be a great idea to read it at home with your child, this will support their learning at nursery.
