Christmas Advent Calendar

It’s fair to say the Christmas frenzy has hit us!  What an exciting and busy time we’ve had.

For our advent calendar this year, we really wanted to emphasize the value of quality time together, rather than just “things”. So we filled our advent calendar with activity and challenges tailored to each individual bairn’s interests.  Each bairn has a special activity to do and the opportunity to share it with their friends if the wish.  Quality one to one time and time with friends can often be overlooked at such busy times and we’ve all really enjoyed our advent times together so far.

Here’s a sneaky peek at what they’ve been up to…….

We’re Back!

We are all so excited to be back at Nursery and welcome all the new boys and girls to Nursery for their first week.  Here’s a peek at what we’ve been up to…..

…..we love being creative with paint and loose parts..

…it’s great having a tea party.  The smell of coffee and tea in the nursery has been delicious!..

…everyone likes to have a turn helping with snack and it’s great when the older bairns help our new starts to learn all the different jobs we do….

…..we continue our learning outside everyday.  This week we’ve been pedalling, sharing, building, balancing, making music with different objects and the most fun playing in the rain!  Puddles are great and when the rain stopped we added more water to make more puddles and continue our play.
