Honey Pot Garston are extremely pleased to announce that we have received a Silver Award Reading Quality Mark by our Local Authority for our commitment and dedication in promoting reading in the Early Years!
We have been very lucky to have Mike our nutrition manager and Sue our gardener helping us plant some seeds this week. We are looking forward to watering them daily and watching them grow.
We have also had a visit from Zoo lab this week to help us celebrate Jamie’s birthday. Zoo lab brought lots of reptiles for us to explore. We were all very brave
We have been very busy this past month with lots of exciting trips, We have enjoyed visiting the museum exploring the world of colour, Windmill farm and Acorn farm feeding and petting the animals and Walton hall gardens playing on the park and riding on the train.
Earlier this week a group of our Garston Worker Bees met up with a group of our Aigburth Worker Bees at Otterspool Prom for some fun and games. The staff brought along some PE equipment and the children were able to use the large space to carry out their daily PE session. They had fun with the parachute and also took part in some friendly races such as the egg and spoon race. The children had a great time making new friends and ended their trip by visiting the play area. They are really looking forward to meeting up again soon!
A group of our Busy Bees had a fantastic trip to The World Museum this week to explore the colour and light exhibition. they visited the colour changing mood room, had fun dressing up to explore the effects of camouflage and discovered how dogs, bees and fish actually see. They also had time to visit the aquarium floor and explore the bugs before enjoying their packed lunch.
Our first few session of Forest School in the Spring Term have gone extremely well. The children are absolutely loving it. Our Forest School Teachers Ashley & Michael have been teaching the children the basic rules of Forest School which cover safety around the fire circle and the correct way to use the tools. During their latest session they made pieces of art on the trees using all of natures resources and they had their first meal at Forest school which was prepared on the camp fire!
We had our first gardening session with Sue and Mike this morning. It was a perfect day to start planting. We learnt about how to prepare the soil for planting and how to help our plants grow. We planted some strawberries, sunflowers and beetroot. Once they were planted we gave them lots of water. We are going to look after them everyday and we are excited to see them grow! Thanks Sue and Mike, we can’t wait until next week!
