Cooking soup on our fire pit

Last week based on the children's interest in camping, they made tomato soup and then heated it up on our fire pit. They watched the adults build and safely manage the fire, learning how to keep themselves safe. Staff encouraged the children to use their senses to smell the fire, feel the heat, listen to the crackles of the kindling and taste their homemade soup. Yummy!

Parent Gardening Club

Thank you to the parents who came in for our Parent Gardening Club today. They helped us to clear 4 bags of garden waste and we planted over 50 daffodil bulbs, which are sure to make the THNS garden look fabulous in Spring. Next time we will be planting Winter vegetables... yum! It was lovely to see the interaction between our children and families whilst digging and planting together. Please look at our Gardening Club photo page, where you will see our progress this year.

‘Jeans for Genes’ Day at THNS raises £60 for charity

Today all of our children and staff wore their jeans to Nursery to raise money for the 'Jeans for Genes' charity, which supports children in the UK with genetic disorders. We beat our target from last year and raised £60 today for this worthwhile cause. Well done, THNS!
