Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.

We have been very busy this week making cards and presents for our mums and baking lots of goodies for our special Mothers Day Tea afternoon. We enjoyed chatting away with our mums whilst we tucked into sandwiches, fairy cakes, flapjacks, jam tarts , all perpared and baked by us! It was a great afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed by all!

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
We at Prince Edward Primary School were very excited to host the termly gathering of The Sheffield Nurture Network Group in our Nurture room this week. Nurture practioners from all over Sheffield came together to share experiences and resources and to exchange practical tips and advice as well as offering encouragement and support to the members. By meeting together and talking about the challenges we face and strategies that work well, empowers us as nurturers to feel supported, enabling us all to continue to do the best we can for our nurture children.
Thank you to all who attended!
We have been observing the changes in seasons in Nurture and decided to experiment with blending colour and silhouettes to create these stunning winter scenes!
We recieved a box of beautiful christmas tree decorations from our partner Nurture group in Tyndale. Our children really enjoyed unpacking the decorations and marvelling at how carefully they had been made. Thank you Tynedale Primary Nurture Group. We hope to hear from you again soon!
Today the children were each handed a paper heart and were asked to crumple it, step on it (without ripping it), and say unkind things to it. After that they unfolded their heart, smoothed it out and tried to get it look as smooth and fresh as it was before. Of coursed everyone’s heart styed crumpled and tatty. The children were then asked to applogise to their heart and see if they could fix it. We had a discussion about how even though they said they were sorry, the creases still didn’t come out no matter how hard they tried to fix it, and this is exactly what happens when one child is nasty to another. You might not be able to see it on the outside but all those crumples stay with them on the inside!
Today the children were asked to squeeze an entire tube of toothpaste onto a paper plate. They were then asked to try and get as much toothpaste back into the tube as possible. After a while they realised it wasn’t going back in! We then had a discussion about words and phrases that have been said to them that are hurtful and wrote them on a whiteboard. We looked at the words and talked about how they are just like the toothpaste that has been squeezed out of the tube. Once hurtful words have come out of your mouth, you can’t put those words back in! We thought about how we should choose our words carefully even when we are angry. Even if people forgive us for saying hurtful things, they will still remember that those words have been said.
