’50 Things to do before you’re five’
There is a brand new app for families in Hertfordshire! It’s called ’50 Things to do before you’re five‘, it’s intention is to improve outcomes for our younger children. It’s full of ideas for activities and experiences that can be accessible for everyone that encourage communication and language, being active and trying new things. Many experiences are outdoors and open ended so the whole family can take part!
How many experiences and memories can you tick off?
We are all God’s Children Day
Today we had a fantastic day, we learned the parable of the lost sheep. There was a shepherd that loved each and everyone of his sheep.
Children had their own special sheep they had help to draw and looked after it for the day. All children managed to keep their sheep safe, just like the shepherd did in the story.
We also made ‘hugs’ to show how the shepherd loved all his sheep and how Christians believe that God loves us all. Children chose to either represent a sheep or themselves as we all matter.
We sang a song too about how we are all special, important and loved.
What a wonderful start to the term. The children are settling really well and have been fantastic. They are learning our routines well and following adult guidance to join in with all activities.
We have started now to draw and display our self-portraits and we have been creating face pictures with bits and bobs to represent the features. Here are a few photos.
Classroom and outdoor area photographs
We are busy getting our classroom and outdoor area ready for learning and playing, see the photos below. We can’t wait to get started with new friends and new adventures and look forward to getting to know you all. If you scroll down you can meet the team, and see the PowerPoint from our welcome meeting back in July.

A message for any nursery families that are coming to us or staying with us in September.
We look forward to welcoming children and families in September. Some children may be excited, and some may feel daunted, I’m sure many of you parents feel a little apprehensive and we all have a mixture of feelings.
I have attached a pdf story of a child starting school for you to share with your child. This will enable you to introduce the idea of going to nursery or school and possibly staying all day. This will help all children especially those that will be full time in September. Read the story and talk about it with your child. Doing this several times every now and again will help your child understand some of the experiences that will be ahead for them and help them cope emotionally for what could possibly be a challenge. It will be ‘welcome back’ to those families we know and for those that are new, we are looking forward to meeting you and beginning the process of getting to know you.
