Welcome to the last half of the year.
Last half term the nursery started to look at Health and Sport as the children were inspired by the Aston Villa football coach. This theme will continue with the continuing support of a coach, the kitchen garden and the Banardo's Toddle at the end.
We will also be looking at Transition to assist the children with their move to various reception classes in September. To support this we are creating reception role plays and arranging small group visits to Anglesey Reception and St Francis School.
Sound Bounce will also be returning to us for five music sessions and some more children will be visiting The Symphony Hall
We have been home visiting all the new children for September and have really enjoyed meeting with familiar and new families. We will be writing to you again at the beginning of July to ask you to join us for a Stay and play session where you will be able to meet the staff, fill in all the paper work and the children will have the chance to play with the other children in their key group.
Classes continue as usual in the Community Room and you can find an overview of the nursery curriculum in " About Us". If you wish for any further information please call direct on 0121 464 4385 or come in and see us.
Welcome back to the summer term.
We hope you all enjoyed the break.
As you can see we had an exciting half term with the Living eggs hatching on day twenty one and growing into really rather large chickens. Nine out of the ten eggs hatched and when they were old enough they went to a new home on a farm. It was great watching them hatch and grow almost over night. We have placed a time lapsed video on the website so you can see for yourselves.
We finished the term with an Easter egg hunt on the last day where the children had to search out treats left by someone with suspiciously big feet.
Room one morning children had the opportunity to visit The Symphony Hall as the conclusion to the Sound Bounce work shops. They went on the stage, conducted the organ and had a musical picnic. It was a wonderful visit and other classes will have the same opportunity later in the summer term.
The afternoon children will have the opportunity to visit Handsworth Fire Station, watch this space for pictures.
We will be having a focus on Health and Sport this half term and we have been lucky enough to receive support with P.E. skills from the Premier League Stars event. We have a coach from Aston Villa coming to support both staff and children for the next ten weeks.
We will also be growing and tasting our own vegetables, keeping our bodies fit, including out teeth, making healthy choices and completing a fun run for Barnado's at the end of the term.
We know you grow vegetables at home so please share with us your ideas and successes.
Offers of nursery places have gone out in the holidays. Shortly we will be contacting families to arrange home visits to support with your induction process into nursery.
If you still wish to apply for a place or have not received a letter please call or drop into the nursery as soon as possible.
We have had the Living Eggs package in the nursery this week. The children have been able to see the eggs hatch and then watch them develop. Next week when the chicks are a bit stronger the children will be able to hold the chicks and learn to care for them.
Welcome back to the second half of the spring term. We hope you all had a great break.
Last half term the nursery participated in a collaboration with The Symphony Hall and The Town Hall (TSTH) called Soundbounce. We had two professional musicians called Sara and Natalie who worked with the children on a project about a penguin called Parinda. Parinda traveled via different means to hot, cold and imaginary countries improvising with songs and instruments as she went. The children got really involved and explored new instruments such as the viola, the piano, the squeeze box, the xylophone and organ pipes.

Happy New Year and welcome to the first term of 2017.
We hope you all had a great holiday.
The nursery celebrated Christmas at the end of last term with lots of Christmas activities such as the making, writing and sharing of cards and also the big end of term party with Santa himself.
The children really enjoyed the games, dancing, dressing up, meeting Father Christmas and of course the gifts he brought with him.
We would like to thank all of you for your kind gifts and presents.
Also we would like to thank you for helping to raise over £800 with the rest of the school by supporting our Children in Need Super Hero day.
As in previous years we will be working again with Sound Bounce. These are two professional musicians funded by a partnership with The Town Hall and The Symphony Hall (THASH) to run a series of workshops with young children. The project is about a bird who uses various forms of transportation to travel to different places. It involves exploring lots of instruments and exploring improvisation. In addition this year the team are going to follow on from last year's work and develop the theme further with the reception children.
We also hope to conclude the experience with some small group visits to The Symphony Hall to see and hear the organ; watch this space for photos as we go.
