What's going on in Butterflies..

 

We would like to welcome Freya Hobby, Jaxon Sutton, Ali Zakriya, Alyssia Whelan, Jack Victory, Leo Fitzpatrick, Dominic Pape, Layla Stevenson, Lev Gurchenkov to the Butterflies room.

 

What we have been learning – Family

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 childs 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 its 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 Baking 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 been bakery themed, the children have taken part in cake making activities, making the cakes themselves and then being able to enjoy them afterwards, the staff have also recently taken the children on a trip to Asda bakery where the children planned out maps, made shopping lists, and then went to the bakery to get ingredients for cakes, they then came back to nursery and baked, they absolutely loved this and are all looking forward to their next trip!

Butterflies have celebrated the school leavers and the season Autumn.

 

In the upcoming months Butterflies will be celebrating the seasons Autumn and Winter, this will include; Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, Diwali and St Andrews 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 Next Story book of focus is ‘How to catch a falling star’ this book links to the season Autumn, The children have been busy creating Art work to go towards our featured board.
