Ahoy there! The children of THNS have been busy this week making and reading maps, digging for buried treasure, dressing up as pirates and creating their own 'Jolly Roger' flags. A new pirate language has erupted throughout the nursery and truly captured the children's imaginations. Shiver me timbers!
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!
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.
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!
This week some of our children and their families were celebrating Eid ul adha. We hope you had a fantastic 3 days of celebrations and we would love to see any photos you may have taken at home. We celebrated by sharing dates during our snack time and reading stories about Eid. Eid Mubarak from THNS!

A HUGE thank you from the children, families and staff at THNS to our Head of Nursery, Debbie Butler who has now become Head of School at Beulah Nursery and Infant School. We'd also like to thank Margaret Scanlan for all of her support and commitment to THNS over her term as a Governor. We are grateful for all of their hard work and support and know that they will both continue to be great friends of THNS.

They all received a special certificate and a prize for coming to Nursery every day. Well done!
Our 2 year olds accompanied by their parents, had a fabulous time visiting Crystal Palace Park Farm last Friday. They had the chance to stroke all of the animals and learn all about them. They even had a picnic in the park and went to see the Crystal Palace dinosaurs! Thank you to all the parents who took the time to bring their children and engage in this exciting learning opportunity. Please have a look at our photos on the 'galleries' page or click here.
We have had a fantastic Sports Day at THNS today! Our staff worked incredibly hard to arrange the different races, make medals for all of our children and certificates for our children who are leaving THNS. Many thanks to all of our parents and carers who came to cheer on our children today.
