This has been a very exciting week for St James Church School Nursery!
On Tuesday, we received an award from Somerset Skills and Learning for being their Apprenticeship Employer of the Month! We have a very successful record of training apprentices - out of our 12 Early Years Practitioners, 6 started off as apprentices with us.
All week in Acorns, we have been learning about and celebrating Chinese New Year. On Wednesday, we were very lucky to be able to take the children out to Mei's Chinese Buffet Restaurant for lunch! The children enjoyed a variety of new foods which many of them hadn't tried before - including Spring Rolls, Vegetable Chow Mein, Egg Fried Rice, Chicken balls and Prawn Crackers. We were incredibly proud of how sensible the children were in the restaurant and the staff in Mei's all commented on how well behaved they were! This was a brilliant opportunity to experience eating in a restaurant and to find out about different cultures and celebrations. Thank you to Mei's for having us!
