First half term done!

Well what can I say!…the children’s first experiences of school have been very different this year as we have faced some of the biggest challenges yet.   From home visits taking place on the door step to the children having to say good bye at the gate, we are delighted to say that most have now settled and are enjoying Nursery…phew!

 

 

 

     

The children enjoy looking at their family photos in the home corner which has helped them to settle at Nursery.

                                                               

They have started to follow our Nursery rules and routines and have made friends and learned lots of new skills already!

                                                      

We look forward to welcoming the children back after a well deserved week off!
