Spring at Jack Straws Lane

Nursery is where children can become so much more! 

At Jack Straws Lane our children can be whatever they want to be, recently they became archaeologists and teachers. Not forgetting to thank their mummies for being fantastic.  


Our pre-schoolers loved digging for dinosaurs! Using the woodland at the nursery and following on from their interest in dinosaurs, the children put their investigation skills to the test as they dug and discovered buried dinosaurs. The children were able to wash them to identify which dinosaurs they had found and then were practicing their Growing Writing skills by writing some of their names and their features using magnifying glasses. Brushes and spoons and spades. 





During World Book Day- all children throughout the nursery were invited to dress up as their favourite story character and bring in their favourite story to share for the day. Pre-school children decided they would like to take their stories down to share with the babies. Developing their Growing Readers skills they each shared their stories, pointing out the pictures and reciting some of the story too! Some of the children were siblings so to share stories together was extra special for them.



We celebrated Mother’s Day with a special breakfast. We invited all of our Mummies in to enjoy breakfast for the day. They got to enjoy a range of fruits, croissants and bagels with us here or to take on the go for work! Don’t worry, we remember Daddies on Father’s Day too!
