Our visit to Arcadia Library

The children had a fantastic session at the Arcadia Library! The kind people that work there shared some lovely stories with us and showed us how to borrow books using a library card. Some children and parents were already registered at the Library and some more signed up during the visit. The nursery children love to listen to stories and had such an enjoyable time, so let’s get ourselves to the library as often as we can!

I would just like to say another big thank you to all the parents that joined us on our visit, we really appreciate your support.

World Book Day 2019

We had a lot of fun on World Book Day! The children enjoyed wearing their pyjamas to Nursery as our whole class focus was ‘bedtime stories’. We had lots of opportunities to share stories and get involved with the story-themed activities in the classroom. We were lucky enough to have a special visit from Miss Chronnell we shared some lovely stories about the lovable characters Pip and Posy. In the afternoon we spent some time with Year 3 as they read stories to the children in small groups.

Reading is so much fun and thank you to everyone for getting involved and being part of World Book Day! Everybody remember to use your book tokens!

How we have changed…

Thank you to all those that have already brought a baby photograph into Nursery, the baby book will be beautiful! If you have not already photograph in, we ask if you could do so as soon as possible. The children have enjoyed talking about how they have changed since they were a baby and have talked about what they could do then and what they can do now e.g. a baby drinks from a bottle and older boys and girls drink from a cup. We will be making a book of all the beautiful photographs showing how the children looked as a baby and how they look now they are big nursery boys and girls!
