This week we have been learning about Diwali. Some of the children chose to make some candle holders.
The children have also been talking about the fires that they have seen over the firework period. We have been to the woods to drink hot chocolate, collect firewood and leaves and learn about how to stay safe around a fire. Once the children have learned how to stay safe, we will use the sticks collected to light a fire.
The nursery follows a child-led approach to teaching. Children are born with a natural desire to explore and learn and our staff members support them in this. We have created an enabling and stimulating environment to enable us to do this. We do not plan ahead, rather we remain ‘in the moment’ with the children as they explore and learn. We observe the children carefully and enhance their learning by teaching them in their chosen activity.
If you would like any further information about any of the activities we enjoy at nursery, please look at our planning board or ask a member of staff.
