The children took part in a Forest School session today – they used the Halloween theme and read ‘Room on the Broom’. The children then collected special natural found objects to magic-up Witch Fern a new broom, which we found amongst the trees!
Nicole’s key group have been exploring pumpkins for their Fascination topic.
They have enjoyed a very large variety of Pumpkin themed activities including making Pumpkin play dough, painting pumpkins, testing their scissor skills by cutting out pumpkin shapes & making potions in pumpkins!
They have also tested their fine motor skills by placing pins into the pumpkins and attempting to stretch elastic bands from one pin to another!
They also enjoyed a pumpkin picking trip and were fascinated with the different sizes and shapes of the pumpkins!
They plan to do many more pumpkin-themed activities including bowling with pumpkins & also having a go at carving them.

On Tuesday some of our Worker Bees children went Pumpkin Picking! They had a lovely time and decided to pick six pumpkins, one for each child who attended the trip! They brought them back to nursery to use in various fun activities with their friends.
The children even had time to explore the outdoor play area too!
We recently had a ‘Wear it Pink’ day in the nursery in aid of breast cancer awareness.
Many of the children wore lovely pink outfits.
There were also some lovely ‘pink’ themed activities for the children to participate in including glueing & sticking, a pink sensory exploration tray & pink water play.
Thank you to everyone who donated for the cause.
Today, Busy Bees visited Croxteth Hall Farm. They saw a variety of different animals including pigs, horses, sheep, cows and even an owl, a peacock and some meercats. The children were very interested in the animals and enjoyed practicing the animal sounds they already knew and learning about some unfamiliar animals. There was time to have a play on the outdoor play area.
We have enjoyed celebrating International Chinese day today, Yesterday the pre-school children visited China Town and went the Chinese supermarket to pick up ingredients for our lunch and tea, today the children enjoyed eating delicious Chinese food. Bumble bees enjoyed painting some Chinese dragons, while Worker bees used chopsticks to copy Chinese letters.
Today Worker Bees have celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving with their Canadian teacher Sarah. They painted their hands and printed them on the paper to make turkeys. They enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner and apple pie pudding and spoke about things they are thankful for!
