We are currently in the process of changing the displays in the corridor outside the nursery. The first one to change is next to the coat racks. Please take the time to have a look. It is all about healthier lunch boxes. A recent survey showed that very few lunch boxes surveyed in typical primary schools were meeting the nutritional needs of the children so we have pulled together s display based on the most recent information to help make making healthier lunch boxes easier!
Parents sometime wonder why messy play is so important in nursery, yes, your children do come home covered in paint and shaving foam or even porridge but as well as ensuring the washing machine doesn’t get a break messy play has a value in helping your children learn and develop. Messy play allows children to experience a variety on textures, it gives them an opportunity to learn new vocabulary and speak and listen. Handling the messy play materials helps build strong hands and practice fine motor skills and they get opportunities to practice maths in a real world situation, counting items, filling pots full or half full or cutting items in to halves or quarters.
Hands On Learning website gives a nice overview about why we value messy play so much in the early years.
