Flying Start @ Camborne Toddlers Explore Feelings With Emotion Puppets!

The toddlers at Flying Start @ Camborne have been using their ’emotion puppets’ in circle time, to explore and play, and talk about their feelings.

  

The children played with the different puppets, and were able to say which each emotion was and then demonstrated it…

They talked about how the puppets are happy, sad, scared, amazed, and surprised.

Great work, Camborne toddlers!

Flying Start @ Camborne invited parents & carers to come into the nursery and join in with the fun, and they held their stay and play session in the garden – to share some of their forest school learning!

The pre schoolers did some planting, and then they measured themselves and their mummies and daddies.

Meanwhile, the toddlers did some forest school activities with their parents… they made journey bracelets and had lots of fun splashing in the puddles!

It was great fun for all, and a lovely opportunity for the parents to experience some of our outdoor learning! A huge thanks to all the parents who came along and we hope lots more families can join in at the next stay and play on the 23rd May at Flying Start @ Camborne!

The children at Flying Start @ Camborne have been out and about in the community a lot recently… the holiday club & the pre-schoolers went on a fun trip to Raze the Roof!

The children had lots of fun in the ball pit, going down the slides and doing lots of climbing!

Another exciting trip was when the whole nursery went up to Camborne Park to explore and play!

They had lots of fun on slides, swinging on the swings, climbing on the climbing frames, swinging on the monkey bars and spinning round on the roundabout!

   And finally, the Holiday Club went to the beach!
