Our 2 and 3yr olds had a fantastic day out at Crystal Palace Park Farm today. Their parents/ carers attended the trip with them so it was a fabulous family experience. The children had the chance to meet and handle lots of different animals. Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard to arrange this valuable learning experience.

We love getting messy! THNS led a successful 'messy and sensory play' workshop for our parents and carers this week. Families and their children had the chance to explore different textures, sounds, smells and most importantly learn how messy play can support children's learning and development across all areas of the curriculum. A big thank you to Helen for organising and leading a fabulous workshop, which our parents/ carers have given excellent feedback on.
To the rescue! THNS children received a special visit from London Fire Brigade today. Everyone got the chance to sit in the fire engine, speak to the firefighters and even use the hose! A huge well done to all of the children for their excellent behaviour.
Can we build it? Yes we can! A huge thank you to all of the families who supported their children to create make-shift dens and raising money for the charity 'Save the Children' in the process. With your help we raised a total of £60! Click here to view our pictures of the day!
We have had the most amazing two weeks at THNS watching our baby chicks hatch from their eggs. All of the children at THNS have been completely enthralled by this process and have learnt lots of new facts and vocabulary, which has developed their communication and language skills. This experience has impacted on all areas of our curriculum, from counting chicks to creating fantastic art work. Please click here to see our photos from the last two weeks.
Today at THNS we had a great turn-out for our phonics workshop, where our parents/ carers learnt how to support their child's early literacy skills. Families made and laminated resources to use with their child in order to support their learning at home and in preparation for their transition to primary school. Many thanks to Nadia for preparing and leading this great learning family learning opportunity.
We're very pleased to welcome all of our new children and families to THNS. What a lovely sunny week we've had! Please click here for our latest newsletter, which contains diary dates for the summer term.
Children at THNS enjoyed an exciting Easter hunt today, searching high and low for baby chicks in our garden. Children were encouraged to help their friends after they had found their chick, so that every child was able to find one. We'd like to wish all of our children and families a happy Easter holiday and look forward to everyone returning safely on Monday 16th April.
To warm ourselves up after a half term of chilly weather, we decided to have an end of term BBQ today at THNS on our fire pit. The children sat around the campfire feeling the warmth on their faces, singing songs and learning about fire safety. Everyone enjoyed a tasty a hot dog for snack time today!
Children at THNS completed a tricky obstacle course at nursery today for Sport Relief. Donations collected will go to 'Comic Relief', a charity which supports projects around the UK and the rest of the world. Well done team THNS for raising over £50!
