They say time flies when you’re having fun and that certainly seems to be the case this academic year. The Summer term is here and for some children it marks the final term before they leave us to take the next step in their school journey. This week they found out which primary schools they would be going to in September and many of the children were excited to share this news with their teachers and friends.
We have begun our theme on transport and the children put their heads together to brainstorm the different ways they come to nursery. In Tuesday’s cooking session we made wheel biscuits by rolling and cutting out wheels of all shapes and sizes. In assembly the children have been learning some new transport songs including “A bicycle made for two” and a song about Ford Escorts, Minis and Ferraris. One girl went home and asked “Mummy do we have a Ferrari?” to which she replied “no darling, we have an Audi”. It had obviously been playing on her mind as the next morning she asked “why don’t we have a Ferrari?” Her Mum thought about it and said “you’ll have to ask Daddy!”
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the daynurseries.co.uk Top 10 award for the fourth year running! This award recognises the most recommended nurseries in each region of the UK and we say a massive thank you to all those parents who submitted such lovely reviews. All of us at Mount Carmel work tirelessly to create a warm and nurturing environment for children and we are so grateful to receive such positive feedback from parents. We feel so privileged to do the job that we do, working with such delightful children and their families, and love the community that Mount Carmel has become. We have received dozens of congratulatory messages on Facebook including one from a woman who did work experience at the nursery when she was 13 – “I’m now 38 and a teacher. I still teach the steam roller rhyme that a nursery nurse called Tina modelled to me and a song about a miller. It was an inspirational time.”
Luigi ran like the wind at the London Marathon and crossed the line in an impressive 3 hours and 45 minutes. With your generous support he reached his target and raised £1,751.00 for the Mental Health Foundation.
We are very grateful to all of you that have brought in your recycled craft materials for junk modelling. The children will be putting these resources to good use over the next few weeks so please raid your recycling bins at home for any small boxes, kitchen roll tubes, buttons etc.
Next week’s sound is g as in goat.
