Nursery - Year N

My most memorable read as a child was a book called Mr Meddle's Mischief by Enid Blyton. Perhaps I was taken in by the thought of mischief! Mr Meddle is a pixie who can't get anything right. He's always meddling in other people's business and making dreadful muddles. From then on I went to read many of her books but my favourite was the series of The Magic Faraway Tree and The Wishing Chair. I loved these stories so much I would read them over and over again. They whisked me off to wonderful places of elves, gnomes, talking trees and so many other wonderful things.

When I was a child, I loved the Goosebumps books. I found them so exciting yet very scary! Each story was a different mystery and adventure and I'd never be able to predict what would happen next...

One of my favourite children's books is Alfie Gets in First by Shirley Hughes. I love all the stories about Alfie and Annie Rose but this is my favourite. It's a simple story about Alfie coming home from the shops with his mum and slamming the door shut with Alfie inside and mum and the keys on the outside. One thing I love about this book is the illustrations. They tell so much of the story not written in the words, like the window cleaner who gradually works his way up the street on each page and the people who come out of their houses to see what is going on. Shirley Hughes is a great author but an even better illustrator because her pictures tell so much more of the story.

My favourite story is ‘Guess How Much I Love You’. This is my favourite book to read to my children. Every bedtime we snuggle down and share this story together. We all find that this is the perfect way to end the day.

Welcome back to all our nursery children!
 It's been so lovely to see you all after such a long time off. Everyone has come back with great enthusiasm. 
We have also had the pleasure of welcoming several new children to nursery. We have been impressed at how well they have all settled in and we are enjoying getting to know them and watch them making friendships already! 
During circle time we have been discussing health and hygiene and why it is important for us to wash our hands regularly throughout the day. We have also been reminding ourselves of our nursery rules such as sharing, being kind and taking care of nursery resources. 
We have been blessed with good weather so have enjoyed spending time outside, playing with the water, sand and buying ice creams from our role play shed! The mud kitchen is also very popular so please remember to bring your children in old clothes as it can get rather messy!
