Autumn Term Newsletter (October 2018)

This term seems to be going so fast we can’t believe we are nearly at half term; REMEMBER (nursery closes on the 19th October and re-opens on Monday29th November). We have had a lovely Autumn Term so far, learning about Autumn, Harvest, Hibernation and exploring activities with our favourite bears from home.
OWLS (Pre-school) Our regular outing and activities are proving incredibly successful. The children are loving their visits to our 3 regular care homes and are making relationships with the residents, sharing experiences, stories and generally enjoying all aspects of these outings.
Beach school has been successful too, as the weather has been very kind to us. We have spent this term focusing on identification of the different things we find. As well as our ongoing project on pollution, cleaning the beach and the ornamental pond of plastic and rubbish. Please talk to your children about all our outings as you might be amazed about their awareness and knowledge.
Yoga:- All the children are enjoying the many benefits of our regular yoga sessions, gaining control, whilst practising a variety of poses, listening skills coordination and positive well-being. Ballet and ball-skill sessions are also enhancing the children’s learning and development in all areas and promote a holistic approach to their nursery experiences.
Next term we will be thinking about Remembrance, Christingle celebrations, starting our Advent celebrations with Las Posadas. (watch this space).
