Sunscreen and Sun Hats

sun protect policy

At Loanhead Nursery we provide outdoor learning experiences all year round, using our nursery garden, going to the woods taking part in forest school activities.  In the Summer months we all want to enjoy the sunshine but we must do this safely.

We ask that all parents/carers apply sunscreen to their child/ children before attending nursery, NHS recommend children use a sun protection factor 30+.

We ask that you provide an unopened bottle of sunscreen that we can keep in the nursery and will support your child to apply throughout the day.

We will have a “nursery” sunscreen (care inspectorate recommended)  to use on odd occasions however we need your permission before letting your child apply this.

Finally, we ask that you provide your child with a labelled sun hat. We will encourage them to wear their hats when they are playing outdoors.

Please also see our recently revised sun protection guidlines.

Thank you for your support!  The Loanhead Nursery Team

Nursery Sun Protection Policy

As the weather is changing children are choosing to spend more time outdoors. It is very important to ensure the children are protected from the sun. Below is a link to our current sun protection policy. If you feel we could add to or improve this then please give any ideas to a member of staff.

Thank You

📗World Book Day 2021 – Digital book token 📚

📚  As part of World Book Day, the children always love to be given their book token in school.  This year I have been given a digital book token for parents/carers to save onto their phones and use in participating stores.  The children can get one of the £1 books using this token or they can get money off the other World Book Day books.  This can be used until March 28th.

Enjoy 🙂 and remember to send in your extreme reading photos

Chinese New Year continued

As Chinese New Year festivities go on for up to 15 days we thought we would share some more activities and ideas you could try at home.

Did you know exploring different traditions helps your child develop acceptance and cultural awareness?
Why not watch this clip to learn more about Chinese New Year? Before watching maybe ask your child what they already know about Chinese New Year? After watching find out what they have learnt about the celebration.

Chinese New Year cuisine is as varied, colourful and as exciting as everything else to do with the celebration.  If we were at nursery, we would take the opportunity for children to try different foods from China and expand their taste buds. There is lots of well-known examples available in the local supermarket that you can try. You could try lots of pick ‘n’ mix bowls with common Chinese food at home. Spring rolls, prawn crackers, rice, noodles, dumplings, sweet and sour chicken or tofu, as well as many other common dishes. Or you could opt for a healthy snack, an orange which symbolise wealth, apples are for peace and tangerines are for good fortune.

Our chart we shared yesterday displayed the Chinese alphabet. We hope you had fun finding letters from your name.

Today we are sharing a chart displaying Chinese numerals. Can you find your age? Or the number written on your front door?

Have fun discovering the Chinese numbers.
