What we have been learning

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 info@firtfriends-nurseries.co.uk  They are an invaluable tool for ensuring children feel included, especially those who struggle to communicate verbally and a good conversation starter.   

What have we been learning? The children have been doing ‘children’s choice’ in messy play, this has encouraged children to get involved and become more interested in what out in the room. The children have really enjoyed the toothbrushing song and have been learning about teeth and the importance of keeping them clean. The children have been self-serving at mealtime, choosing their meals and serving onto their own plates, pouring their own drinks and then clearing up after themselves and cleaning their own faces.

The children have shown an interest in the Pirates in the recent months, exploring key words, looking at different pirate stories and learning pirate songs. Some of our older children have also really enjoys writing their letters, doing their name cards and talking about them, we have encouraged all children to join in when these activities are happening, the younger children love to copy the older children!

In the upcoming months Butterflies will be celebrating the season Spring, this will include Shrove Tuesday/pancake day, St Patrick’s day, Mother’s Day and comic relief, 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.
