EXPLORING CATERPILLAR ROOM
Today the children built an amazing structure.
The adult helped by reminding the children they should only build four bricks high, to keep everyone safe.
Our Story Corner
Every day the children are read stories in this area, either individually or in a small group where the adult will use story props and prompt cards. The following week the children have free access to these resources and will often tell the story to themselves or more frequently with another child.
Well we have reached the end of year!
Sadly no snow for us to all go sledging but there are a few days left!
Thank you to everyone who came to the Christmas sing-a-long,
the children were amazing.
Enjoy Christmas will see you and our new children starting in January 2018 .

First day back Wednesday 3rd January 2018
This week has been really cold!
Today everywhere was white with ice. The children wrapped up warm and everyone went on a winter walk.
WE explored pumpkins outside for Halloween week.
We scooped out the insides and made soup in the mud kitchen mixed with mud and water.
Two pumpkins had holes punched in them, we used real hammers and golf tees we had to be careful to mind our fingers.
Welcome back to our children who were
here last year.
Hello and Welcome
To all our new children
It has been a busy few weeks , settling our new children who can find being
dropped of and collected very unsettling.
Please be reassured we will call you if we feel your child is finding nursery very difficult and may need a longer settling period.
Children exploring Caterpillar room
Their first weeks in a new Nursery
Parachute in a group
Its very tricky to work together as a team
This week the children have enjoyed climbing & scrambling over our tyre climbing frame.
Lots of children have returned each day to try again, pushing themselves to move quicker or climb higher.
Thank you to everyone who came to our Celebration picnic.
It was lovely to chat with everyone and to be able to say farewell to the children moving onto Sunbeams.
Our construction site
At last we have finished the construction site!
The money raised from the magnets was used to purchase large diggers for the children to use, as you can see the children quickly started to explore their new play area.
Thank you Michelle, Suzanne and Jo
As you can see from the pictures the children had a great time on the bouncy castle (secretly the staff did to)
We didn't see the Easter Bunny , but he gave us all a mini chocolate egg as a treat.
The best bouncer will get a prize
Thank you to all the parents who sponsored their children, any forms and monies can be handed into the office or given to Caterpillar room staff.
Welcome to all our new children and their families
I update this web site regularly please check in to see
your child learning through their play.
Roundhill Gets Active
All week the children have been out on the school field.
Warm up exercises first!
The children ran (it is a long way to the end)
They pushed buggies
and ran with the go wheelies
Well done Caterpillar children!
The children painted flowers and planted a sunflower seed for their mummy.
Please remember to water me and put me somewhere warm to grow.
This week the children have been decorating a fallen tree from the garden.
First they painted
next they stuck on tissue paper with PVA glue
Finally they tied ribbons on the tree
The finished tree will become part of the process art display in Caterpillar room
Today we went on an adventure, can you guess where?
Yes we went to Santa's grotto.
We listened to our Christmas story and made paper chains
before our adventure was over and we had to leave.
We didn't see Santa he must be very busy but maybe
if we are good we may see him soon.
Water tray /Marble run
This week the children have really enjoyed the challenge of using the syringes to squirt water down the marble run, causing great excitement when they see the fruits of their efforts come out at the bottom.
' BRRRRR it's cold outside'
This week the children are making bird feeders too feed our feathered friends over Winter.
Here is the recipe to make some at home.
Wild bird peanuts
Bird seed mix
Lard chopped into cubes at room temperature
Mix well in a bowl
push hard into a clean yogurt pot
(Add the string in the bottom first)
Hang up in the garden
Enjoy watching the birds eat their treat!
We have had lots of time every day, to have lots of fun practicing kicking footballs and trying to score goals, some children are footballers in the making, already
starting to dribble the ball.
Welcome back to all our Caterpillar children, this term is going to be busy with
Firework night and Christmas.
Welcome back to our returning children and a
warm welcome to our new children and parents.
The settling in period can be a highly emotional time for both children and parents , these emotions are most evident at drop-off time and collection times. To help us support your child it is important that children are collected on time and for children to see happy cheerful parents, I know you may be feeling sad, however children respond better to happy faces. If you have any concerns at all please speak to a member of staff or call the school who will put you through to Caterpillar room.
MUD KITCHEN MAYHEM !!!
