Take a look at our review of the year 2017-2018

Review of year 2017-18

The Outdoors at Windsor

Our outdoor environment is so important for the children’s learning – we thought we should show it on the website.

The richness of the variety of natural environment – the trees, shrubs, flowers, natural habitats, the different levels, the range of natural surfaces provide a challenging, engaging, open ended satisfying world to be in.

Windsor – an oasis in Parkfields

Exploring down the Lane

Today was full of discoveries – from the stripy caterpillars, the beetles, the butterflies, the guinea fowl, the chickens, the pony and of course the horse called Misty

The children have loved being explorers and of course – making their own fire with sticks in the fire pit to make hot chocolate

Thanks for leading all our adventures Sharon

Forest crowns

The children made their own crowns from willow and decorated them

Nursery Places Available for September

If your child is 3 years old by the end of August 2018 come along and visit us. We offer a morning session 8.30-11.30am and an afternoon session 12.30-3.30pm.

As you will see from our website we love the outdoors and celebrate how playing in the outdoors  allows children to have the richest, real opportunities leading to the highest levels of learning.

Heavy Work

This week the children have been doing lots of activities that help support their sensory development.

They have been rolling down the hill – that helps develop their sense of balance (posh name is vestibular development) an essential sense that so much of our physical competences sit upon.

They have been climbing trees and using mallets – this we call heavy work. This helps develop their sense of proprioception – where their bodies are in space – again another vital sense we all need. Heavy work trains our brains to know where our body parts are.  Think how important that is for learning and life.

They have also continued their fascination with bug hunting – we are hatching butterflies at the moment too – look out for the photos coming soon

Our ducklings grew very big

We have loved having our ducklings – as you can see!

They have grown very big so Sharon has taken them back to live at Northicote farm.

Watch out for what we are caring for next!

Do Trees Have Faces?

The children were amazed how tall the grass is. They saw a lot of butterflies and birds and loved climbing

Outdoor Explorers

We found ladybird eggs on the tree

We couldn’t believe it when one of the children noticed the little yellow eggs. We didn’t know what had laid them there – then a ladybird appeared (maybe to check on them).

We needed to get the magnifying glasses to have a closer look!
