The children at The School House nursery in Middleton have been busy reading a story called The Chapatti Moon. This book tells the story of a cheeky chapatti that runs away from its maker, Mrs Kapoor.
The children wanted to make their own chapattis so Sabrina’s mum very kindly came into nursery to show them how. She helped the children make their own chapatti mixture and used a special flour called ‘atta’. They dressed up in traditional Asian clothing called ‘shalwar kameez’, shown in the photograph.
They had a fabulous day, which taught the children about traditions and cultures, and the importance of patience and helping each other to achieve the end result of a tasty dish.
"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."
