Kate Chaplin – Youth Sports Trust Tutor and Development Coach, has written a blog in the eyes of one of the children at a nursery/pre school.
In the Autumn of 2018, my Early Years teacher went to Minehead to “Teacher School,” for the day.
They learnt lots of games and activities that would help me to learn, be active and play with my friends and family.
During Autumn, the leaves changed colour on the trees and some of them fell onto the ground when the wind blew. We started to play the games that my teacher had learnt.
Sometimes we were like the Birds in the Trees who were balancing on the branches when the Autumn winds blew
Look at Me!
I can balance on both my feet close together On one foot On the other foot How many seconds can I balance for on each foot?
Soon, our parents and carers came and joined us. We would all listen to a story and then play together.

In the spring term, we were given a rucksack.

My favourite thing in my rucksack is my……?
At home, I have played with the toys and cards in my rusk sack with my parents and we all had lots of fun.
At Easter, we had an egg hunt and played Healthy Mover games! We had a picnic with our friends from other nurseries.
I made some great new friends and learnt not to be scared of going to a new place and trying different games and activities.
