We would like to say goodbye and thank you to Amy and Sarah who will be leaving us at the beginning of September, Amy is having a change of career and Sarah is starting full time at University. We would also like to welcome back Jade Loverseed who some of you may remember and also welcome Nicky Scott who is going to be starting at nursery and Pauline Heywood who will be working at our Davenham Out of School Club.

Babies and First Steps

This month we are going to take part in Heuristic play sessions and we will be making a display based on this with lots of photos of us taking part.

Our colour of the month is yellow and we will be doing more creative pictures for our ‘art gallery’.


The story of the month is ‘Fox’s socks’. We will be reading this book as a group and participating in different activities based around the book. The shape we are concentrating on this month is the triangle. As the Autumn has started, we have started a display in which we will be going on walks around the garden, collecting nature objects such as leafs, pinecones, twigs.

Big Room

Throughout the summer holidays we moved our big room around as we had noticed that some of the areas were more popular than others. Since the move there is now more space to explore their interest areas, which include the construction area, kitchen/role play area and the art area.

Pirate Pete is at nursery waiting to go on a special adventure which can then be shared with the children in big room.

We have recently made a family display board which is in our cosy area. If you have any photos which we could display, please can you either pass them to Nikki or email them as this will help to comfort the children and encourage communication skills.


Throughout September the pre-school children are going to be creating lots of arts and crafts for the outside to help develop all of our 7 areas.

This month we are also focusing on Autumn, we will be taking part in nature walks around the garden and linking in with our story of the month which is ‘Stickman’.

Also we would like to remind you that Dave the Dog is here waiting to go on adventures with you, which you could then write in your news flash books to share with your friends at nursery.
