Lots of rules in place to keep children and staff safe. The wonderful weather means we can be outside all day long and of course, everyone is so pleased to see each other. We currently are just taking the ‘Oak trees’ in small groups.

Going Shopping Feb 2020

We are very fortunate that we have a community shop just next door where we buy our milk from. A small group of children come and we talk about what there is to buy and the children handle the money and carry the milk back to nursery.m_o_36789_41c97ejynah1rnmb2agfa92dqmrvv3zb m_o_36790_y07b44gwzkcb0rad2m9d7q717abbn1z1

Our Elm Tree

Today Steve the Forester came in to prune our Elm Tree. We talked about the clothes he was wearing- high vis jacket, steel toe caps and chain saw protection. We then walked over to our tree and Catherine had made a big arc in the frost for the children to stand on. Steve gave us a little talk about our special tree and while we had to look after it. How dutch elm disease had killed nearly all of our elm trees and that was why our tree was so special. We talked about the leaves that an elm tree has- with ‘teeth’ on the edge of each leaf. We then looked at his tools, secateurs and a sharp saw. He then sawed off a few branches to help it grow into a big tree without having lots of side branches. We talked about how we have to prune it like a hair cut. Dec 2019m_o_35813_c87rkb28vwkkdrc1497msqgt8fp4ya0h m_o_35809_pdd5cfv7hg72d7efq52f74cyf1frsvcy m_o_35814_wmwj4d7hsezvkdxwxb6xvyzms1h6q6mp
