Bugs, Giant Turnips And Magic Beans!

All our children have been busy in the  garden looking for bugs and creepy crawlies, planting potatoes, marigolds, sweet peas and much much more including magic beans!

This was extended to story time where they all enjoyed ‘Jack and the Beanstalk‘ and The Giant Turnip’. Later in the week our Pre-school and Toddlers had a lovely trip to Dobbies where they learned all about taking care of, growing and of course eating strawberries!

Easter was full of activities with all our children making easter bonnets and rabbit ears – lots of fun, feathers and glitter! Everyone loved making the finger and thumb print easter egg cards and we hope all the parents enjoyed receiving them.

The week was ended with a visit from the Easter Bunny himself.

All the children were very excited and loved dancing with him. The sun was out and rabbit ears and bonnets were paraded by all the children.

Meanwhile over in the science lab, lots of baking and cooking has been going on with such activities as making Easter Bunny Nests with shredded wheat and chocolate (yummy!).

The children also made their own tea, home-made pizza with lots of toppings to choose from. This week they even made their own soda bread! Pre-school made pudding for all the nursery – a lovely strawberry jelly for all and they have even made flapjacks!

So I think you can say it really has been a busy month for all of us, if you like the sound of how we teach and have fun with the children at our Southport day nursery and would like your child to experience the same, why not get in touch and arrange for us to show you and your child around Southport Monkey Puzzle, we are very proud of what we do!
