Every Wednesday we do PE in the studio. This week we were making shapes with our bodies.
There are two classes of Nursery children at Cheddar Grove. They are called Willow and Cherry,
Willow class attend school on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9.00-3.15 and Wednesday mornings 9.00-11.30. Cherry class attend school on Wednesday afternoons from 12.45-3.15 and Thursdays and Fridays 9.00-3.15.
At the start of the school year the Nursery staff visit every family to meet children and their parents in the home setting .We find out about each child's previous experiences in playgroup or with childminders and discuss how best to support each child as they start attending the Nursery.
Each child then comes to a Welcome session at school, where they have the opportunity to meet other children and their parents .
Today Willow class had some exciting visitors. We met some mini beasts - A giant African land snail called Turbo , a tarantula called Rosie, a hermit crab called Hermione , a cockroach called Melinda and a very friendly snake called Hunter.
The children really enjoyed this educational hands on experience.
