Welcome to The Nest
What is The Nest?
We follow the six principles of the Nurture Network
Children will have the opportunity to:
Talk about their feelings
Work on curriculum based activities from their classroom such as phonics, maths and reading
Experience and practice the development of positive relationships
Some of our favourite pictures from our sessions!
A Morning in The Nest
First, we have carpet time and talk about what we are going to do in our session.
Then, we wash our hands and enjoy a snack, a piece of toast or fruit.
Then, it's time to choose a board game, this helps us to build our team work skills as well as using our learning to help us get around the board.
Next it is time to complete our learning activity. We sing songs and complete tasks in our learning books.
Sensory Trays and Choosing
When we complete our learning activity we get to do our sensory trays. These change each day so it is always fun! Once we have completed our tray we get to choose an activity of our choice.
Tidy Up Time
Before our lunch we must tidy away ready to have a story!
Finally, we finish with a story and talk about how we have done in our session and what we are looking forward to about the rest of the day.
What have we been up to in The Nest this term?
Maths has been really fun! We have been learning about how to use number lines, bead strings, pictoral representations and counting equipment with numbers up to 50. We have written our own equations and created our own maths stories!
Learning about Easter
Everyday we play a game or do a sharing activity with our friends. Look at all the fun we have!
Our seasonal visitor 'Buffy Bunny' joins us to bring us seasonal goodies for the children to enjoy.
On this visit be delivered some holiday decorations to include in our space.
'Elf on the Shelf'
We look forward to his next visit!
