Toasting Marshmallows

After some of the children made a pretend campfire with the bricks, we decided to let the children experience a real campfire in the playground using a firebowl.

We discussed all the safety rules with the children beforehand and then had a great time toasting marshmallows on the fire.

Stay and Play

A big thank you to all the parents who came into nursery today to play with their child during our “Stay and Play” morning. We made swirly dragons as part of the weeks Chinese New Year celebrations and the children enjoyed having the parents join in at singing time.

Chinese New Year

Today was Chinese New Year and the children were learning about some of the customs and celebrations which happen on this special day.

They learned about how children receive lucky money in a little red pocket and made some of their own with chocolate coins.

We also tried to replicate a very long Chinese dragon and had great fun moving it around the nursery!
