The new term has started in earnest and children have come back excited and ready to learn.
There has been a focus on talk and sharing our summer news: the children have been supported to make a shared book about their summer news.
We are already welcoming brand new children and their families to Rachel Keeling.
Children have been helping our new starters by sharing with them, smiling, talking to them and showing them around. Wonderful Rachel Keeling Values at work.
Children have been baking and sharing snacks (including the rarely spotted Brownie!)
Of course, our gardeners who are helping develop our outdoor space have been wonderful and children have enjoyed watching the excavator and diggers at work.
With a deeper focus on language and vocabulary, we are now including key words on our weekly plans and on learning displays in each space. Look out for them so you know what the children are doing each week across the nursery.
