Play dough 

The children enjoy exploring the play dough stations within the nursery.

Here are the benefits of playing with play dough...

  • It develops fine motor skills. 
  • It's calming for children. 
  • It encourages creativity. 
  • It develops hand-eye coordination. 
  • It improves social skills. 
  • It supports literacy, numeracy and science concepts. 
  • It promotes play.  

Below is a simple recipe you can use to make play dough. If you make your own play dough, please add photos to your child's tapestry account. 

8th October 2021  - Multi skills 

The children enjoyed their first multi skills session lead by  Mr Townsend from Chelsea football club. The children enjoyed balancing the quoits on their heads. 

The children will have the opportunity to join in with this session every Friday. Please ensure children are wearing sensible shoes and no earrings.

Hello from around the world display... 

This week the nursery children will be bringing home a plain piece of paper. We would like them to decorate it with how you say 'hello' in your home language. The display celebrates the wonderful languages our families speak and allows the children to feel a sense of belonging. 

Below are some examples. 

Friday 24th September 2021


The children have settled really well into their daily nursery routines. New friendships are developing and the children have enjoyed exploring all of the nursery resources inside and out! 



Please can you send us a family photo via your child's Tapestry account. We would like to add these photos to 'Our family' display boards in each of the rooms.  

Thank you
