Your child’s journey through Myatt Garden’s Nursery
Group trip to Howarth Timber
Since we had our new toilets installed, the nursery children have been very interested in builders. They had the idea to make a ‘builders workshop’ in our garden. A research group visited Howarth Timber builders’ merchants to find out more.
World Book Day
Nursery celebrated World Book Day by bringing favourite books and toys to nursery as well as wearing our pyjamas. It was a day filled with fun and reading!
After two weeks away whilst building works were carried out in Nursery, the children, parents and nursery staff were delighted and excited to return and to see the new updates.
During the recent nursery building improvements, the children adjusted well to their temporary surroundings and had fun exploring the new environment.
Chinese New Year
Nursery children have been celebrating Chinese new year. Children wrote a card for their family then we went to the local post office to buy a stamp and post it. The children were very excited.
Nursery went on a nature walk to Luxmore Gardens to look at the different types of bugs that we might discover in our nursery bug hotel!
Nursery made a shopping list and went to Tesco to buy some cooking ingredients.
Children in nursery have been using all sorts of items and materials to make models.

Christmas in Nursery
Children in Need
Nursery raised £37 getting spotting for Children in Need.
Nursery children had fun celebrating Diwali
During Diwali celebrations we made roti, rangoli patterns and divas.
Nursery families enjoyed a sunny picnic, celebrating those children who are moving up to reception and welcoming all the new children.
The chicks grew so quickly that by the time they were less than a month old they needed more space than we had at nursery and we thought they must be excited to meet their families. We said goodbye and sent them back to Christmas Tree Farm. They travelled in a pet carrier and will live for one week in a hutch, then they will live in a pen with their cousins.
When they are fully grown they can run all around the farm and probably peck the crumbs from visitors picnics. Visitors to Christmas Tree Farm can also buy a bucket of food to feed the animals. If you would like to visit the chicks (and the goats, rabbits, sheep, pigs and cows!) here is the link to where they now live: http://www.xmastreefarm.co.uk/ The chicks won’t end up on a plate, they will live at the farm for their whole life to help children learn about animals and how wonderful they are.
Nursery found it so interesting and exciting to incubate eggs and watch the chicks hatch out of their eggs, we thought it looked like really hard work! We took good care of the chicks giving them lots of food and fresh water, keeping them warm and giving them lots of cuddles. We couldn’t believe how quickly they grew.
We had a visit from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
We went on a nature walk and enjoyed looking, touching and learning all about the local wildlife.
Nursery children have been busy collecting snails in the rainy weather, they then counted the sails using the 10 frame.
Thank you to all those who attended our Garden Party, we all had such fun.
