The Queens Platinum Jubilee!

At The Enchanted Wood we celebrated the Queens jubilee with an afternoon tea garden party with some delicious scones and party games. We made flags and decorated our garden ready for our party. We had a lovely time with all our friends to celebrate Queen Elizabeth becoming the first British monarch in history to achieve Platinum Jubilee – 70 years of reign and service.

Staff Easter Bake Off!

The staff all took part in an Easter Bake off, they all baked their own cakes or bakes over the weekend and on Monday we tasted them on our breaks and chose our Star Baker through anonymous votes! For the second year in a row Jade our Bunnies Room Leader recieved star baker for her delicious lotus and chocolate orange cookie cups! Well Done Jade!!

Easter Bonnet Competition!

The whole nursery took part in making their own Easter Bonnets! The children made their own bonnets at home with their families and brought them in for the parade. Each room took turns to parade their bonnets around the garden. We had four winners and four runner up prizes, however they were all absolutely amazing!

Curiosity Approach inspiration.

Families are able to follow the Curiosity Approach at home by involving children in the everyday running of the household. Children can be encouraged to help prepare meals, press buttons on equipment such as washing machines and telephones as well as supporting with home maintenance such as sweeping a floor or recycling empty packaging. All of the above allows children the skills they needs to practically succeed in life.

Provide children with a range of loose parts to explore and upcycled materials to allow children to explore using their senses and imagination. Children can build and create enchanting story lines without a toy being just one thing.

Give children real resources rather than play resources to allow them to explore the weight and texture of treasure like resources. Allow children to explore with awe and wonder and recognise those moment of deep-rooted exploration.

Allow children to explore the outdoor natural world as much as possible. Take regular walks, collect natural items and have family time outside exploring all weathers.

Upload all special wow moments onto the Tapestry app and have a hand in hand approach with the nursery to share children’s play and knowledge and celebrate achievements together.
