To introduce the new Music Development Matters curriculum the children at Highwood House have been participating in a selection of music and movement activities. Music and movement together provide many benefits to the social, mental and physical development in children. Incorporating music and movement in early childhood education helps young children with social interaction and language growth. The children have enjoyed creating their own musical instruments to support their ever developing curiosities, they have been learning new songs, rhymes and actions to complete with them.
Home Learning Bags are now available to borrow from the nursery. Home Learning Bags are activities that you can take home to explore with your child and are available to borrow for 2 weeks. There are a selection of Home Learning Bags available in the reception area. Please see your key person or Lurice if you have any questions about this.
To further support our parent partnership, please feel free to email in any photos or inform the nursery via your parent partnership book or using WOW vouchers. We love to hear about your children’s achievements and interests to incorporate them into planned activities to further support your child’s development.
To help with our forward planning, and if you have not already done so, please could you inform the nursery of your child’s leaving date if they are leaving us to start school in September.
With the changing weather please provide weather appropriate clothing as well as sun cream and sun hat for the children to safely explore the outdoor area.
