On Monday 1st February we held our first Virtual exercise class with children and staff from all our rooms and we invited our parents and grandparents. We had such a lovely response and numerous parents and grandparents joined us for the session. It was lovely for the children to see them on the screen and joining the activities.
Our parents and grandparents enjoyed being able to see their children enjoying themselves at nursery and interacting with their peers, as they have not been able to come into nursery as normal for some time due to the Covid restrictions. Children saw their parents and grandparents on screen joining In with their favourite action songs, it was super seeing them all join in together.
We invited parents to comment on the session and for any other ideas they would like to see virtually to help them during this difficult time.
One parent said “ I loved it, it was so nice to see Bobby having fun at nursery in real time…. unfortunately I had a meeting otherwise I would have stayed for the whole thing and joined in”.
We had some lovely feed back from parents saying they now know which songs they do at nursery and they can now do them home.
After the session we discussed how exercise is good for us and how it keeps us healthy, we talked about our families who joined us on screen and how some of our parents do exercises at home.
We would like to say a special thank you to all who joined us for the virtual exercise session and we look forward to our next little get together soon.
