The children are really making the most of our fantastic outdoor space during the summer months! We have recently had a revamp of our garden and the children are loving it! They have a beach zone, a mini beast garden, a mud kitchen, a mini allotment, a shaded water area, a reading den, camping corner, a bike track and designated P.E zone where they can carry out a variety of activities such as football, basketball, tennis, parachute games and much more! There are so many opportunities outdoors for the children to enhance their learning and also to have lots of fun!!
Today to coincide with England Women’s first match in the EURO’s, all of the girls were invited to come to nursery in their football kit. At Honey Pot we feel it is very important to challenge Gender stereotypes and support the children in whatever they choose to do. The girls have had a fantastic day playing football, taking part in a penalty shoot out with the staff and designing their own football tops. We also let the children watch 10 minutes of a match played by the England Ladies Team. We are all very excited for tonight’s match. Come on ENGLAND!!!
A group of our Worker Bees visited Claremont Farm this week. They had a fantastic time picking a variety of Berries, including strawberries, Raspberries, Blackcurrants and Red Currants. They enjoyed exploring the fields and finding the berries on the bushes and shrubs. At the end of their trip they the Farmer weigh the berries and then brought them back to nursery. They were able to take some home to share with their families and with the rest they made some treats to share with their friends at nursery. They made Berry Ice Cubes, Berry Yoghurt Pops and Berry Semifreddo with the help of Mike our Food & Nutrition Manager. We cant wait for our next visit!
The children in our Worker Bee room have been discussing healthy eating and drinking. Our children took part in an activity, slicing lemons and limes and using them to infuse their daily drinking water. We also used the fruits to enhance our senses during a taste testing activity.
The children in our Busy Bee room enjoyed exploring their senses during a food activity. We talked about how to use utensils carefully when creating yummy watermelon lollypops. The children used cutters to create the lollypop and then with guidance placed stick in the bottom of their lolly.
Some of the pre-school children had lots of fun visiting Claremont Farm yesterday. They were able to pick some yummy strawberries and raspberries even had a sneaky taste on the way around. They were also lucky enough to spot some pigs and give them their dinner

We had a busy day involved in many activities relating to independence day. Lots of the children came to nursery dressed in the colours red, white & blue. There were American themed streamers created, some lovely firework pictures & painting & making our own flags. Some of Worker Bees children acted out a battle of independence & also made their very own declaration of independence!
