Polkadot Pershore – Our gifts to Austin Court Care Home

Dear Parents, family & friends,

We at Polkadot Pershore decided during the festive season that it would be nice for
the children to make something rather special for the residents at Austin Court Care
Home in Evesham.
The staff and children worked together and came up with an array of special
Christmas snowflakes, which each child played an active part in making.


As you can see from the pictures the results are spectacular, and the residents were
absolutely over the moon when one of Santa’s elves delivered them.
It is always lovely to work in collaboration with differing settings within the wider
community and it is something that we as a nursery hope to do more of in the future.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

From all the staff & children at Polkadot Pershore.

 

November at Polkadot Pershore!

November has been another busy month for children at Pershore nursery.

We have all been creating individual art master pieces , celebrating Bonfire and Remembrance day, alongside beautiful stories explaining and recognising various emotions. Some of us even had a go at re-enacting some of them.

In small groups we took part in using and naming different shapes, supported by creating our own shapes using playdough; mixing different coloured jelly and identifying the colours in the surrounding environment has been another favourite activity, along side creating beautiful rangoli patterns by sticking coloured rice for Diwali celebrations.

Autumn Time at Polkadot Pershore

Playing, exploring and making sense of Autumn at Pershore

 

Have a look at the fabulous time children and staff alike have had in October.

 

We have welcomed new children and families, went for autumn treasure hunts and celebrated harvest by exploring lots of new fruits and vegetables.  Playdough shapes making, water play, music making, dancing, drawing would also be worth mentioning.

 

A real feast for our senses by trying new textures, flavours, sounds, words, stories and songs.

Big thank you to all parents for sharing with us those beautiful, positive thoughts engraved on the Pumpkin.
