This week in Woodlands

Dear Woodlands Families

I would like to say a big thank you, to the children’s Grandparents, who took the time to share the afternoons with us this week.

We have really enjoyed sharing the Nursery with you and know that you enjoyed seeing your grandchildren in their Nursery environment.

Thank you to Rebecca, our new Assistant Marketing Manager for taking some super photos on Tuesday afternoon.

We all acknowledged how special it felt to have families back inside the Nursery classroom.

We received a lovely note from one of our Grandparents:

“I wanted to write and thank you and your wonderful staff for giving us a peak into the loving and nurturing environment that you feed our grandchildren’s inquisitive little minds in.
It really was a privilege so spend some time with our Grandson and his friends and see how they love learning in your care”
2022 Grandparents Day at Woodlands

Now Summer is here, the Woodlanders have taken lots of opportunities to develop their learning outside in the sunshine. They recently enjoyed bringing in their bikes or scooters for ‘Bike Day’ where they explored the grounds – some at super speed! The Woodlanders have been on nature walks, noticing which flowers have bloomed and spent time collecting the flower petals on the floor to make potions with! A popular summer activity the children like to do is roll down the hill, get covered in grass and do it over and over again as they laugh with one another! It’s the little things in life! ’

Might I also please remind you to use the Woodlands car park safely and refrain from parking on the roundabout which we need to keep as a flowing, turning circle. Thank you.

Wishing you super, sunny weekends!

Best wishes

Mouse’s Wood by Alice Melvin

Mouse’s Wood is a gentle wander through the seasons of the year. With lift-the-flaps and gentle rhyme, the story is a delight.

The beautifully illustrated map on the preface allows readers to track Mouse’s progress, with the seasonal evolution subtly detailed through the surrounding trees.

As Mouse wanders he meets all of his forest friends and every time he meets someone new, readers can take a little nosy inside their house.
