F1 Maths Stay and Play
At the start of the Summer Term, F1 opened up the Nursery to parents by holding a Stay and Play session.
The focus of this session was to help parents gain an understanding of how we teach maths within Early Years, as well as giving them some ideas of suitable maths activities and games that they can carry out at home with their children.
During the session, the children shared their learning journeys with their grown-ups.
The session was very well received, with some parents suggesting that we held more open sessions with a similar theme. their grownups.

Helping families in Nottingham to stop smoking
City centre ‘big belly’ bins now feature a follow-up to the Dear Santa quit smoking campaign. Shown before Christmas, the adverts are a post-it note reply back to the child from mums, dads and grandparents. For example, dad says he has packed in so can now afford to take the family on holiday. Grandma says she has quit because she wants to see her grandchild grow up. The messages directed smokers to free text Santa to 80800 or call New Leaf on 0800 561 2121 for free stop smoking aids and support.
New Year is the time for parents to think about quitting with New Year’s resolutions, especially after seeing the Health Harms campaign on TV or billboards.
New Leaf ‘Next Stop’ Bus Campaign
New Leaf Stop Smoking Service has launched a new advertising campaign on Nottingham City buses to encourage smokers to make New Leaf their ’Next Stop’. The adverts outline the free support and stop smoking aids offered by the service.
Stopping smoking is the most important thing a person can to do to improve their health.
To refer anyone please call 0800 561 2121.
People are 4 times more likely to stop smoking using New Leaf than by trying to stop on their own.
