A month of fun!

The first climb up onto the summer seat - always a good moment!
I can't believe the first month of a whole new school year is over - there is no doubt that September is the hardest month as we get all 26 children settled into nursery, for many it is the first time they have been with anyone other than family. This year we also have 6 little ones who don't speak English so it has been difficult for some of them to settle - it must be do hard when you know the adults don't understand you or you can't understand them. 

It never ceases to amaze me every year at how quickly the 2 different groups become one big class & begin to gel and play together. Once most are settled and happy to let their parents go it is definitely easier to have the class as one group and we can really begin to get the routines of nursery into place. The class have been embracing every opportunity offered to them & I love their enthusiasm for tackling lots of new experiences. 

We are very fortunate that we will have 3 childcare students working with us this term so we will have a 3rd adult every day but even at this early stage I can say that this class is proving a very manageable one with just the 2 of us. We'll enjoy the next 3 weeks of getting to know names, having the whole new experience of lunch & dinner in nursery, exploring the playground in a variety of weathers & making our first visit to Bear Woods. 

Here are just some photos of some of things the class have been enjoying so far:
"It's my name" 

"It's a crocodile"

  4. When I was a kid I really enjoy playing with many dolls, my elders sister was only 2 years younger than me and we made a good role when playing in the backyard of our house. Sometimes she cook some food and ask to eat me, that was just virtual food but we enjoy it a lot. thanks for sharing such post with us.

  5. I appreciated their blogs There are many competitive examinations coming up every now and then and electrical engineering exam for any engineering student it is important to appear for such exams for more project as well as opportunity. There are many such video coaching centers coming up in the market and not all are known to deliver exams for electrical engineers result as per the requirement.
