We have been busy bees!

We have had such a busy time at nursery in both the morning and afternoon classes. We have used lots of construction materials and loose parts while mixing it with our imagination skills to build and create some marvelous creations. Also not to mention building on our fine motor skills while having fun with all our friends.

Transition Week 3

The children are busy exploring the school and have met some new people. Here at Abbotswell, the staff work together as a team to ensure that all the children feel safe, welcomed and valued.

Although your child will have their very own class teacher, they may see many of our staff team during their school week. We would like these people to be familiar to your child so please take a look at our lovely staff team and see how many of them your child is able to recognise!
