A talent for writing at Grasshoppers Day Nursery
After putting pen to paper for a writing competition, children from Grasshoppers Day Nursery in St Albans were delighted to hear one of their entries had been successful.
As part of the contest which is run by ‘Young Writers’, pre-schoolers from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on York Road submitted their poetry, with four-year old Orla’s entry being recognised and selected for publication in an anthology.
To celebrate the achievement, practitioners from the setting organised a surprise awards ceremony for Orla and her mum, where Orla was presented with a certificate and flowers for her efforts, whilst the group discussed the importance of writing.
Grasshoppers Day Nursery Team Leader, Jodie Smart explained;
“Everyone had a brilliant time showcasing their creativity for the competition, and we are all very proud of the results. Writing offers so many benefits such as aiding communication skills, as well as helping to prepare the children for big school.”
