We were extremely lucky to have the wonderful Imelda Staunton accompanied by her husband Jim Carter come and read to the ducklings today. Imelda is the voice of Stickman and also The Gruffalo on the audio story. It was such an amazing experience for the children. Many of the children recognised her voice and were amazing little ambassadors for Miss Delaney's.
Parent & Child Breakfast
We had our first parent and child breakfast of the year in September, an opportunity for the children to enjoy breakfast at nursery and the parents to have a coffee or tea. It is a chance to meet with the other new parents. It was an amazing turn out and so lovely to see so many families.
We celebrated the coronation of King Charles. The children dress up, had a photo booth and enjoyed a royal party. Some of our neighbours had decorated their homes with flags and we went to say hello.
Fire Service Visit
The fire service visited the children at school, it was so exciting. Some of the children climbed aboard the fire engine whilst some squirted the fire hose in Avondale Park. They had an emergency call before everyone got a turn but the children enjoyed the sirens and blue lights as they left us to save the day.
It was one of the children’s birthday and the ducklings were treated to a bubble show. They had so much fun taking part. From bubble snow, hundreds of tiny bubbles to bubbles filled with smoke before having the chance to be inside a giant bubble.
First Aid Training
The start of the new academic is always busy. The staff completed their paediatric first aid course for the first 2 days of term before the children joined us on Wednesday. The training offers staff the opportunity to refresh their knowledge and practise their skills to help your children should they get ill or have an injury. It's also a chance for some staff bonding for the new staff joining us this year.
