Teenie Moons

During October the Teenie Moons have been learning all about Diwali. This is a festival celebrated as part of Hinduism and is also known as the festival of light. The children have created beautiful artwork, experienced messy play such as colourful rice and playdough. 

The Staff in Teenie Moons have also introduced “Proud Clouds” to celebrate the children when they have done something amazing no matter how big or small. So, if you little one has done something amazing, share it with us so we can celebrate! 

The Teenie Moons also held a stay and play that was very successful and cannot wait to have more 

A Warm Welcome.

We’d like to well WELCOME Becca!! She started in September, and she has settled in really well and has an amazing bond with the children already and we cannot wait to see her develop! 

Mini Moons

Mini Moons have been focusing on Autumn and the seasoning transitioning. They have taken part in lots of fun activities that have involved loose parts to add some risks to the environment (adult supervision of course) and lots of messy play. 
The Mini’s have also been learning about Diwali by creating tealights & rangoli patterns. The older Mini Moons learnt some key facts and new words, whilst the younger ones focused on playing together and learning new words. 
Halloween is also on the horizon for the Mini Moons and the spooky season fun has started to begin- keep an eye on our social media for pictures of all the fun we have been having!! Check out your parent partnership bags for some fun at home 😊

We also had a ‘Sports Man’ come to the nursery to provide a free 45 minuet session for the children to take part in different sport to support their well-being. The children absolutely loved this and had so much! Our children got a football session to head up their imagination for the world cup starting in November. 

Full Moons 

Full Moons have had a jam-packed October, starting off by celebrating Space Week! They enjoyed learning lots of new facts and opening their mind to what could be and what is in space. They created beautiful designs of they rendition of the planets and learnt about the solar system through messy play and investigation. 
They then carried on and learnt about Diwali by making tealights and more amazing paintings. They have been focusing on ‘being a global citizen’ and focusing on the world around them. 
Halloween is coming up for Full Moons and they will be celebrating by dressing up, party games and messy play!
