Book of the Week!

The Book of the week is the Gruffalo, chosen by the children themselves. In the garden this week the children wanted to go in search of the Gruffalo, so by popular demand we are going to base next weeks ‘Learning Agreement Time’ activities on the wonderful story. Here is a link to the story to remind the children of the characters and the repetitive language used throughout Julia Donaldson’s beautifully written book.


Scissor Safety

As well as settling into their new nursery environment, next week we will be teaching the children how to use the tools and equipment in the nursery safely.

Scissors are the first tool your child will want to use to create their wonderful creations; but it is amazing that so many children don’t know how to use them. So to ensure they know how to use them, as well as strengthening their fine motor development, we will be teaching the children how to use scissors safely.

Here is a YouTube link on how to hold scissors safely.

Hello & Welcome

Welcome to the nursery blog, here you will find out what your little ones have been getting up to at nursery. Important diary dates and any events taking place in nursery, school and the wider community.

Meet the team!

Today was the new nursery starters, stay and play and before I could even open the gates, I was greeted with beaming smiles and eager learners. The day was a roaring success take a look at what we got up too!

Thank You

Words can not express how much we are going to miss this cohort of children, they have made us smile everyday and brought so much joy to our lives. They are about to embark on a very exciting learning journey and although it saddens me to see them leave, they are ready to transition into reception. 

On behalf of all of the nursery team, I would like to thank all of the parents and carers for their support throughout the year, participation of learning agreement time and the very thoughtful cards, kind words and gifts you have given to us. We have been completely overwhelmed by your kindness and we can not thank you enough.

I would like to take this time to remember a dear member of the Peters Hill family and nursery team who sadly passed away at the start of the school year, Mrs A Jones. She is dearly missed but I know, she too would be extremely proud of our superstars this year.

This year would not of been possible without the support of the wonderful team I have been privileged to work alongside. A huge thank you, to Mrs Jones, Mrs Coley, Mrs Clift and Shannon.

I hope you all have a wonderful, fun and safe summer and we can’t wait to hear about how you are getting on in your new classes. 

Miss Richards
