We’ve had a couple of lovely walks this week, making the most of the weather whilst it’s lasted. ☀️⛅️Yesterday, preschool enjoyed a lovely sunny afternoon walk into town, discussing what we might see during circle time in the morning. The children then had a lovely time in the park, saying hello to people and even did a spot of sunbathing. ☀️

This afternoon, the Tweenies also had a lovely walk to the park, spotting dogs 🐕 and birds 🐦 on the way and loved climbing on the play area. They especially loved the swings and slides, as well as running up and down the hill! 🛝

SIGNS OF SPRING 🌸🪻

Today, the toddlers enjoyed a trip to the local park. Along the way, we looked out for signs of spring. We saw lots of beautiful flowers and some blossom trees. The toddlers enjoyed saying hello to everyone passing by and really enjoyed being able to run free at the park, practising our climbing skills and enjoying being pushed on the swings and roundabout. We also enjoyed having our snack at the park in the lovely sun ☀️

This morning preschool embarked, on a lovely spring/easter walk in our local environment.

We took a walk to our local church, taking in nature and its beauty. The children spotted spring flowers such as “daffodils” and “blossom” along the way and said hello to passers by.

Following our current topic of Easter, the children listened to choral music and listened to a short story about Easter. We discussed about how to be respectful and mindful during this time.

After spending time by the river, the children took it in turns feeding the swans and ducks before returning back to nursery for lunch and a special ice cream treat!

Happy Easter Everyone

This morning Preschool went on a signs of spring walk!

During our adventure we explored our local environment including the racecourse. The children reflected on their past experiences of the races when we were lucky enough to watch the horses in motion last year. We discussed the differences in the environment and how the horses came from different places and don’t stay at the racecourse all the time.

The children used great observational skills, finding the first signs of spring on their walk including:

🌼 Finding daffodils

🌼 Blossom on the trees

🌼 Looking at crocuses

🌼 Listening to sounds of nature
