Welcome to Sandcastles Nursery!
Miss Natalie Blake
Hello! My name is Miss Blake and I am the Nursery teacher. I have taught in early years for many years now and am looking forward to my first year here at Castlefort. We have a lot of exciting things planned for the year ahead and I cannot wait to share these experiences with the children.
Please feel free free to contact me with any queries about the provision or your child.
Miss Blake is your 'first point of contact', but Mrs Locke (Deputy Headteacher) is available as EYFS Leader.
Below there are some links to some useful information to help you and your child in Nursery. You'll find letters, curriculum information and copies of our timetable. If there's any other information you'd like but can't find, please let me know
Our topic this term is
Why do you love me so much?
Themes incorporated within this topic include:
This topic stimulates children’s curiosity, understanding, knowledge and imagination about themselves and their relationships with others. They will learn…
Activities you can try at home together:
--Look through the family photo album together, maybe organise a family get-together and take lots of new pictures.
-Make a family tree using photo graphs. Lay them out on a big piece of paper, and explore how everyone is connected.
-Visit a friend or family member with a baby. Find out how they have to take care of it, and compare this with how you are taken care of.
Take a look at our Nursery, we have so many things to be getting busy with! We have so much fun making mud pies in the outdoor kitchen, building in the construction area and pretending to be pirates on our ship!
We love outdoor learning here at Sandcastles Nursery! Take a look at the fun we have been having!
