World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

Our coffee morning at Melville Street in aid of Macmillan cancer support went so well on Friday.

The staff went all out, baking lots of lovely cakes and parents were extremely generous with their donations. 

So far we have reached £400 at Melville Street alone, with our other nurseries due to hold their coffee mornings this week. 

Thank you again for all the fantastic support.

 

Face Time

The toddlers at Early Days have been learning to recognise and name their facial features.

We used printed photos to look at our own facial features then we drew over their outlines.

We also used a mirror to identify our eye and hair colours – there were so many different combinations!

At snack time we made mini pizza faces too!

The Great Outdoors

To learn about the changing seasons and explore our outdoor environment, we took our babies to Dean Galleries to have snack under the trees.

Whilst we were eating we were able to watch the branches swaying in the breeze, the leaves falling and the birds flying in the sky.

We collected fallen leaves and small branches and the babies enjoyed exploring the smell and texture.

The Italian Job

The pre school children at Melville Street went to La Rusticana for lunch last week to tie in with our countries topic.

This was an excellent experience for children to get a feel of Italy and experience Italian food.

It is important for children get hands on experiences linked with what they are learning at nursery and also a great chance to be involved with the community and understanding the world around them.

And the food was so tasty!
