OUR LEARNING THEME

The children have been excited to talk about where they travelled to, or what activities they did during their Christmas holidays. This lead to us talking about the different modes  of transport we have taken. The children helped set up an airport role play area, creating signs to let people know where they are going, placing the chairs in a specific area to create the plane and even researching what the iside of the cockpit looks like so we can recreate this in our own plane.  You can watch the real life video of a pilot here!

PERSONAL SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT

We have had some new starters in our nursery unit this week. It has been wonderful to watch the children invite and include all he new students to their play and help them find what they need in the classroom. Throughout the next wekk we will continue to get to know our new friends and explore the unit together.
