As our children return from their six week break it is always wonderful to see how they have grown physically and emotionally. All our friends and family came back smiling and happy to be back at school. There is no greater compliment for us than to see this: children feeling happy and secure and knowing we will be delighted to see them and hear their news.
Children have explored mixing paints, with some children able to create shades and tones such as 'peach', 'teal' and 'gold' purposefully. They have recreated the Hackney Carnival some of them attended, shared their summer stories and created interesting models from Lego. The garden team have been busy harvesting the fruits and vegetables: grapes, apples, gooseberries, potatoes, mint and chives were all harvested this week and garden and bluebell teams worked with children to prepare and cook potato salad, potato cakes, apple and cinnamon crumble and simply to pick, washand enjoy the fruit fresh from the tree.
We are now beginning to welcome our new friends to nursery and begin developing friendships and play. Our Rachel Keeling Values and our established friends will be helpful in the next few weeks!
