DODD (Nursery)

Stay and Play

Thank you to all the parents that were able to join us for our festive stay and play sessions this week. The  children  enjoyed taking part in some activities including bauble hunts (in the rain), Christmas stories, decorating the tree, eating mince pies, making Christmas decorations and more! We understand that not all parents can attend because of other commitments. We will have more "stay and plays" throughout the year. 

Nursery curriculum meeting

Nursery is all about learning whilst playing and having fun! The children are encouraged to find out new things by exploring the world around them and ask questions. Nursery is a safe, friendly place where children feel happy to take risks and engage in new experiences. All staff strive to build strong relationships with their key children so that they flourish in our setting and children are supported to become "confident communicators" so that they can express themselves effectively to others. Nursery is a wonderful place to be, please take the opportunity to join us at our stay and play events throughout the year.





Please see your child's key worker if you haven't been given a time or date.

The children have been brilliant at using the story map to read "That's not my Robot." There are copies of the story map in Nursery if you would like to take one home for your child to share with you. 

Bollywood Dancing

The children were very keen to tell us about the fireworks they had seen over the weekend. They wanted to make some firework pictures. They have been working on sprinkling glitter rather than tipping and pouring it over the paper! We have also talked about different types of celebrations as it has been Diwali this week. The children have made rangoli patterns, tasted indian food and learned how to dance Bollywood style! We are always keen to find out about what children do at home, if you attend a special celebration please share it  with your keyworker on Tapestry.

Well done to all the children that have now completed their first day at Nursery. Lots of the children are managing to say happy goodbyes to their parents in the morning and settling in well. Remember all children are different and it may take your child longer to adapt to our setting but this is all very normal! Please see your child's key worker if you have any concerns. 
The children enjoyed exploring Nursery with their mummies, daddies and grandparents during stay and play. It was lovely to see the children engaging with parents during this time.
