2017 Tiny Toes and Twinkle Toes Newsletter – Summer Term

Posted in Newsletters | No Comments »

This week in Nursery . . .

April 21st, 2017

Twinkle Toes and Tiny Toes have been settling back into their routines.  They have been remembering how to do ‘good sitting’ and ‘good listening’ too. We have been really lucky because the sun has been shining which has meant that we have been able to get out into the garden. So much has grown over the Easter break and we are really pleased because Mr Mason has been able to cut the grass.

This week in Nursery . . .

March 31st, 2017

We could see lots of signs that Spring is truly here.  On our Spring walk we saw hazel catkins, celandine, blossom on the trees, rosemary flowering, oregano and mint sprouting fresh leaves and the wigloo is also starting to green up.  We also spotted a large nest up in one of the school trees.

Sadly, we said goodbye to Miss Harrison today.  She will be greatly missed by staff and children alike but we wish her well in her new job (and we might be seeing her again sooner than we think!)

This week in Nursery . . .

March 24th, 2017

Twinkle Toes have enjoyed mixing and pouring in the mud kitchen.  Some of us worked really hard to fill big containers in the water tray then transport them across to the mud kitchen.  They were very heavy!  


We were interested in playing with the real vegetables and spent time dropping them into our buckets to make a big splash!


Tiny Toes were excited to plant some of the seedlings that Devlin’s Nanny gave us.  Some of us helped Mrs Roome to plant the peas, cabbages and carrots. We remembered to water them.  We hope it won’t take too long for them to grow.

While we were clearing the weeds away, we found some carrots which we had planted last year.  We were surprised at how big they had become.  



It really was a busy week in the garden as we planted our seed potatoes.  We have planted a variety called ‘Rocket’ and the Twinkle Toes have planted a variety called ‘Jester’.  We wonder which will grow to be the biggest potatoes or will produce the most potatoes.  We’ll have to wait a few weeks to find out.

Dave Hargrave's visit

March 24th, 2017

On Wednesday 15th of March, I had the opportunity to pop in and visit the school during reading time in the morning.  There was a really nice atmosphere in the classrooms.  It was great to see students reading and enjoying some really challenging books.  I was also lucky to meet and talk with a group of four amazing students.  One was reading the Knitbone Pepper trilogy by Claire Barker who came to the school this month.  Another had a copy of Harry Potter and also a Michael Morpurgo novel.  I was also introduced to the 52 storey treehouse, which I had never heard of, but it sounds great!  I heard really good things about the reading room too. Thank you all for a really amazing visit. Keep up the good work kids!
