We get up to so much at Lady Castle Nursery! Click here to look at our gallery.
Fifteen month old, Hawwa, and two year old Daniel, have have been playing with the aquatic gravel today, enjoying the feel of the grainy, bumpy stones in their hands.
They were fascinated to watch as they poured the gravel back into the tray or even on the floor, listening to the noise it made as some bounced on the floor.
Hawwa enjoyed moving the gravel from the tray to the sand and then onto the floor whilst Daniel liked to drop it back into the tray. He poured and shouted ‘look!’ – delighted with his achievement.
Both children used their right hands to grasp the gravel, with Daniel preferring to pour from one hand to the other. What an interesting day!
Congratulation to Miss Turner and Miss Simpson who have been awarded a place on the Foundation Degree course: ‘Integrated Working with Children and their Families in the Early Years’ at the St Edmund’s Children’s Centre in Bradford.
The two-year course is strongly work-based and promotes the effective development of partnerships when working as part of an integrated team. Validated by both the University of Hertfordshire and Pen Green Research Centre it also offers the first steps towards a BA Honours degree.
‘We understand that working with children and families is a privileged, challenging and rewarding experience’, said Nursery Manager, Miss Muranka. ‘This course provides a clear understanding of the principles and practice of integrated working to meet the needs of individual children and their families’.
