    From Mrs Ainsley

    We’ve had another happy and fulfilling week with the children getting used to our free-flow ethos. This means that they can choose to go outside or choose from either of the rooms. This has encouraged independence, confidence and self-esteem. We have adult led activities but most importantly we can allow the children to initiate their own learning and as adults we are able to extend that learning in a situation where the child feels happy, relaxed and willing to learn.

    We have had a lovely first full week back and the children are all becoming familiar with the routine of the nursery. We are just a week in and the children are settled, happy and loving exploring their new environment.

    Our topic this term is ‘Light and Dark’ but as always we have gone with the flow of the children’s interest too.  This week so far, we have explored castles with accompanying knights plus built dens outside.

    Miss Nicola was back for her Monday afternoon dance session and there were some great moves and rhythm. I can’t wait to see what they do next!

    Welcome back to each and every one of our Junior Boys, Junior Girls and Nursery School pupils. The past two days have been full of energy and excitement for both staff and pupils.

    From Mrs Ainsley

    With the end of term approaching fast, the staff and children have been enjoying their last week chatting, reminiscing and talking about upcoming holidays and days out with family and friends. I can’t believe that we are nearly at the end of some of your children’s Claires Court journey. The staff can not help but to develop strong attachments and we have loved watching them mature, achieve, grow in confidence and become kind, considerate beings.

    We have been eagerly awaiting the chicks hatching from their eggs and once they did there was much excitement. After spending the weekend gaining strength and growing, the children were able to hold them. The children were also taught the importance of looking after them and helped to change their water and give them fresh food.
