Kate snaps Prince George on first day at nursery 0

Kate snaps Prince George on first day at nursery

Prince George has been photographed by his mother the Duchess of Cambridge during his first day at nursery. William and Kate took their son to the Westacre Montessori School nursery on Wednesday as his education formally began. Two pictures taken by the Duchess of her two-year-old have been released to mark the occasion and they show the future king standing outside the school buildings near the royal couple’s Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

The toddler prince is shown near a large, colourful mural, wearing a winter coat with a small rucksack on his back. George will attend the nursery while the couple are staying at their Norfolk home but not when they are in residence at Kensington Palace in London. Montessori is an approach to educating children developed by the Italian educator Maria Montessori.

It is founded on the belief that within each person is untapped potential that needs a fertile environment and it aims to develop the whole child naturally, with the period from birth to age six seen as when children have the greatest capacity to learn. In one of the images George is looking straight at his mother, who is behind the camera, and in the other his attention has been drawn to something on his right, as he turns round to point at it. The future king is following in the footsteps of his father William and uncle Prince Harry who were also taught at a Montessori nursery at Mrs Mynors School in west London.

Diana, Princess of Wales had first-hand experience of the Montessori teaching method as she worked for a period at the Young England Kindergarten in Pimlico, central London, which used the system. George’s first day at nursery was a far cry from his father’s experience of starting his schooling. William was also joined by his parents the Prince and Princess of Wales as he walked into the nursery, but there were reportedly more than 100 reporters and photographers witnessing the moment.

George’s nursery is in a converted chapel on a private road in East Walton, near King’s Lynn, and there was likely to have been only other parents and their children nearby. By contrast Kate went to a nursery in the Jordanian capital Amman where her family were living at the time. The nursery in Norfolk reportedly charges 5.50 an hour and has been rated as good after an Ofsted inspection in June, the same grade it received following the last inspection in 2008.

The report said: “Children are interested and motivated to participate in activities. Staff have a secure knowledge of how children learn and develop. Children make good progress given their starting points and capabilities.” But it said the nursery was not yet rated as outstanding because: “Staff do not always seize opportunities to promote children’s learning and deeper thinking skills to the highest level. “Strategies to build on and develop the good teaching practice further are not yet fully established.” Please check your email inbox and follow the simple instructions to continue enjoying our content.

Police found bullets, gun near ex-NFL star Hernandez's alleged victim 0

Police found bullets, gun near ex-NFL star Hernandez's alleged victim

FALL RIVER, Massachusetts State Police troopers found two bullets and a .22-caliber handgun near the body of a man prosecutors say former NFL star Aaron Hernandez killed in June 2013, the officers testified on Friday. Sgt. Kevin Halle said he excavated soil in an industrial park where the body of Odin Lloyd, a semiprofessional football player, was found on June 17, 2013, and discovered two projectiles near a patch of dirt marked by a red-brown stain.

I was screening the material to be taken out and, looking at the screen, there was a projectile, he told jurors in the Massachusetts Superior Court trial in Fall River. Prosecutors showed photos of the bullets in court. Investigators earlier testified that they found empty .45-caliber shell casings around Lloyd s body at the industrial park in North Attleborough, Massachusetts.

Another state trooper, Steven Gallagher, said he and fellow officers found a .22-caliber black-and-silver pistol while searching a wet, wooded area near a road a short distance from where Lloyd s body was discovered by a teenage jogger. Hernandez, who lived nearby, has been charged with murdering Lloyd, 27, who was dating his fiancee s sister, Shaneah Jenkins, at the time. Jenkins has testified the two were in the early stages of a friendship and sometimes smoked marijuana together.

Hernandez, 25, had a $41 million contract with the New England Patriots when he was dropped from the team after his arrest on murder and firearms charges. If convicted, Hernandez could draw a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. Prosecutors contend that Hernandez and two friends, Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace, picked up Lloyd at his Boston home on June 17, 2013, and drove him to the industrial park where his body was found later that day.

The gun used in the killing has not been found. Wallace and Ortiz have also been charged in Lloyd s death and will be tried separately. All three have pleaded not guilty.

Earlier on Friday, Associate Justice Susan Garsh ruled that jurors will be allowed to watch surveillance video of Hernandez sitting in a car with one of his lawyers at a North Attleborough police station a day after Lloyd s death.

According to prosecutor William McCauley, the video shows Hernandez dismantling his phone and using his attorney s phone to make calls to Wallace.

Hernandez will face a second trial later this year on charges he killed two Cape Verdean men outside a Boston nightclub in 2012.
