B Cador: October 2018
We are about to start our sixth week back at school. Our new venture in school — The Nest — is becoming increasingly popular.
Mrs Pegram has established a fun, friendly and relaxed club that the children love!
The morning session from 7.30am offers the children a relaxed start to the school day with breakfast, quiet games and play activities and a chance, at the children's request, to practice their spellings or read supported by Mrs Pegram.
The afternoon sessions start at 3.30pm. Some children stay for the shorter session, til 4.30pm. Others stay for the longersession til 6pm. Children start the afternoon session with a healthy snack and then, weather permitting, enjoy time outside. Stuck in the mud and other traditional groups games have become the norm and children have the opportunity, too, to play with a wide range of PE equipment to practice their skills or make up new, exciting games. Some have even gone as far as to imagine their skipping ropes were fishing lines and fished for octopus and sea snakes over the back of the stage! Children return inside and enjoy a light tea, if staying for the longer session. Twister, Frustration, Balancing Penguins are some of the games that bring excitement to The Nest. We also now have children making dens for imaginative play and designing houses, vehicles and race tracks!
Above all, The Nest is offering children lots of opportunity to play and socialise in a safe and nurturing environment. Feedback, from both children and parents who are regular users of The Nest, is very positive. Thank you Mrs Pegram!
Do enquire at the school office if you are interested in finding out more about The Nest . An Information Pack is available.
