Bridge Farm September News

Staff
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Katie on the birth of her daughter Chloe, who was born early on Saturday 12th September weighing 5lb 3oz. and to also congratulate Elise, in the lambs room, who is expecting her first child due beginning of March.

We would like to welcome new staff to our ever expanding nursery, Vickie R is working in the pre-school room and has a level three qualification and is a full time degree student studying Early Childhood Studies at UCS in Ipswich. Vickie loves messy, musical and Arty activities and will be taking on key children two days a week.
Laura is starting with us as an apprentice working towards her level 3 qualification; Laura will be supporting the staff in ducklings whilst gaining some valuable knowledge, skills and experience.

Sharing beach week
Thank you to all who shared in our beach week, the children loved it even though the weather wasn’t great they all had fun.

Winter Menu’s

E-safety –
Due to current legalisation updates we would like to bring this website to your attention. We feel it may be beneficial for you at home; we use ICT programmes within the pre-school room however they are not linked to the internet.

Wow boards
Please don’t forget to add any wow moments or milestones that your child has achieved outside of nursery. It’s always great to hear/ read their achievements to put it into their learning journeys.

Learning Journeys
Please ask your child’s key person if you would like to look at your child’s learning journey.

Don’t forget about our lending library opposite the office for you to borrow any books or story sacks. There is also a transition sack for children who are moving up from ducklings to lambs for you to borrow and share with you child, there are pictures of the room, staff and puzzles for you to look through. (Owls and pre-school bags to follow)

Nursery photographer
Our nursery photographer will be coming into nursery on Saturday 10th October between 10am – 12pm. There is now a form in the office if you would like to book a slot.

Room News

Ducklings
Our holiday display is looking great; please bring in any photos of your recent days out or holidays so we can put them on our wall display. We have been upgrading the sensory baskets with different natural objects and the children have enjoyed watering our vegetables in our garden patch. We are now starting to think about harvest, and we will be printing with some winter vegetables. We can see if any of the children know what the vegetables are. We will be changing our display boards too to incorporate harvest.

Lambs Room
Our beach role play has been a great success and the children loved playing with all the different sensory trays. We will soon be changing it into a farm shop to link in with harvest and autumn. We will also be making an emotions board so we can discuss the different emotions and how we are feeling.
Can we please have some family photos to make a photo album for each child? This not only helps with their settling in but it’s a lovely talking point for us all.

Owls Room
We are looking at shapes around us and in our community, and have been looking at all about me and our families/pets and about where we live. We’ve already made some lovely displays of the children’s work. We will be discussing parts of our bodies the colour of our hair and measuring how tall we are. The children will be able to draw a self-portrait and pictures of our family and we will be turning our role play area into a doctor’s surgery. This will then be followed by people who help us, were hoping to have visits from the police and fire service. If anyone is in a profession where you could come in and chat to the children about what you do, it would be very much appreciated.

Pre-School
It’s been great to welcome all the new children to the pre-school room and we are having lots of fun outside with our new connect four which was purchased from our Sainsbury’s vouchers. We’ve enjoyed creating a new garden centre role play area which the children have really enjoyed playing in. We will also be focusing on changes in our community with weather, harvest and incorporating this into our play
