Take a look at what our nursery children have been doing in their first term at Fonthill...

Molly chooses to paint a picture of her 'Mummy' using a range of colours from the pots.

The children take a break from all of their busy play to have a quiet read in the cosy book corner.

Every morning the children sit together to have cereal and chat!

Watch out, its going to fall!

Alixander counts how many bricks he can build on top of each other to make a 'tall tower'.

Ashley is great at sorting!

Here, he sorts the colours of teddies into their corresponding pots.

Hello everyone!

The children play in the outdoor log cabin, making grass tea and mud pies from their mud kitchen.

'Let it go! Let it go!'

Here the children's interests are embedded in their play as they sing and dance along to their favourite song. They also dress up and act out the characters roles from Frozen.

Mark Making Time!

The children are engrossed in making marks of all kinds, whilst also practicing writing letter formation.

As its autumn time our children like to go on conker hunts under our chestnut tree.

They have a go at opening the conker shells in lots of different ways.
