Introducing-St James’ Hospital

The reception and nursery children had a special visit from a REAL nurse! She read us a story about hospitals, answered our questions and showed us some special items such as a stethoscope, thermometer, bandages and slings. We set up our own hospital role-play area!

The Grand Opening of Our New Outdoor Area

Creative constructions

The new construction area in Nursery is proving to be very popular.  

Parachute fun

Ruth brought in the parachute. We loved going underneath it!

Aliens have landed!

We are very proud of the aliens that we have created.

Self portraits

This week we have been looking in the mirror to help us to draw a self portrait. We used different pens on a large roll of paper.

Our First Week in Nursery

All the children have settled well into Nursery this week. They have made lots of new friends as well as catching up with some old friends.

Congratulations! Miss Ottey gets married!

Miss Ottey became Mrs Plummer on Saturday 5th August at a lovely wedding in the picturesque village of Burnsall. Mr and Mrs Plummer had a beautiful day and we wish them both much happiness in their life together. Congratulations from all at St James’!  

Goodbye butterflies! 

This afternoon we waved goodbye to our butterflies​ ​​​​​

And then there were 5!

All of our butterflies have hatched. They are beautiful!  We need to give them a little time for their wings to dry out. We have put an orange in with them so they have something to build their energy. When the weather conditions are suitable them we will set them free.
