One of the older children brought their favourite story ‘The Highway Rat’ in from home to share, and they decided to watch the short video.
From this they made their own ‘WANTED’ posters and practiced their writing skills. They also made their own masks and role-played the story book with their friends.
From this the children were able to discuss behaviour, and said it wasn’t nice how the Rat made his friends feel, so they decided it was important to have some rules in nursery and to make sure they are kind to their friends.
"Staff have an excellent knowledge and understanding of the children's individual needs and provide a stimulating environment where all children are excited and motivated to learn. Observations of children are consistently used to plan for children's individual next steps in learning."
Linda Shore, Ofsted Inspector
"This provision is outstanding . All practitioners have high aspirations for children's achievement. This means the nursery is exceptional in the way it meets the needs of all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and they make very rapid progress towards the early learning goals."
Ofsted inspector Caroline Midgley
"The Staff always make my child feel happy, safe and secure. The Staff are always approachable, welcoming any queries, concerns and often encourage new ideas from parents and children. My daughter often get comments she is lovely and often models herself on the staff."
Scott, Olivia's Dad
"My son, eats food at nursery that he wouldn't / doesn't eat at home. Which is fantastic! I think the other children eating well shows him there something more to this dish than he thinks."
