Thank you to the staff of Catford Library for making us feel so welcome during our visit. The children enjoyed choosing the books they wanted to borrow.

Two groups of Nursery children ended their week by visiting the pet shop. First of all, we walked to the bus stop. Next, we travelled on the bus towards the shops. Then we enjoyed looking at the different animals. Finally, we selected a hamster to bring back to Nursery. We had to be really still […]

While playing in Nursery, the children are able to choose what they wish to play with. They are really focussed and engaged by being able to follow their own interests. This allows the adults to have lots of ‘teachable’ moments with the children, where we can help them to progress with their learning. Last week, […]
The new Nursery children have enjoyed showing objects from their ‘All About Me’ bags. This has really helped the children to build relationships with the adults and their peers. They are settling in really well!
