Cooking on the Fire Pit at THNS!

In the cold Winter weather this week, we decided to warm ourselves up sitting around our Fire Pit! We learnt some campfire songs and even cooked corn on the cob and hotdogs. Please have a look at some of our photos.

Home Learning Packs – Number Rhymes!

Nathanael and his family have been practicing their numbers at home, through learning rhymes after being given a Home Learning Pack at nursery. This week we also taught our children how to make their own playdough and then we gave their parents the recipe so that they could make their own at home. Please check out other Home Learning Packs, which can be borrowed from the library!

Toilet Training Advice

Part of the Early Years curriculum is for children to recognise the urge to go to the toilet and to be able to self-manage their toileting needs, developing independence. Please talk to your child's keyworker if you require any support in Toilet Training your child and look out for our guidance and leaflets. WORKSHOP COMING SOON...

THNS goes clothes shopping!

We have been creating our own clothes shop in our role play area, so decided to gather some inspiration from the real clothes shops in Thornton Heath! We even bought some clothes, used real money to pay and took our receipts back to nursery.
