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 loved sharing their Learning Journeys with their families today. As ever, our 'Sharing Success' day was a popular THNS event. Our staff are looking forward to discussing children's progress more with families during keyworker week. We are very proud of our children's achievements!
Parents enjoyed exploring our computing equipment whilst attending our Digital Learning Workshop. Everyone played with the computer software, iPad apps and remote controlled and programmable bots, discovering how their children learn at nursery whilst using technology.
Today we had some very special visitors at THNS. Oak the Guide Dog and her owner Marian came to teach our children about the role of guide dogs and how they support people with Visual Impairments. All of our children had the chance to meet Oak and give her a stroke! We were very proud of some of our children who were a little nervous at first but built the courage to take a turn. Thank you Marian and Oak! Please click here to see our photos from today.
