Flying Start @ Cornwall College Enjoy Beach School Outings!

The children and staff at Flying Start @ Cornwall College have been really enjoying their weekly trips to the beach for beach school!

The children have been using their special binoculars to see what they can find on the beach, and looking up to the cliffs…

…exploring the rocks and caves…

And building towers of stones that they have found on the beach!

Looks like great outdoors fun!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Toddlers Do Leaf Paintings!

The toddlers at Flying Start @ Cornwall College have been reading this half term’s story which is ‘Anna Hibiscus Flower’, and some of the children noticed the different leaves and trees in the book…

So the staff developed on this, and took the children on a leaf hunt!

Then they did some leaf printing and painting themselves of the trees they had seen and the patterns they could notice on the leaves!

 

Great work, Cornwall College!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Cornwall College are really interested in caring for others, and decided that they wanted to be doctors for all of their baby dolls!

The role play area has now developed into a baby clinic!

The children have been writing patient details, dressing the babies and listening for a heart beat through their stethoscope.

The baby clinic also caters for meal times, washing, and nappies!! It’s a great service!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College held an amazing cake morning in aid of Macmillan!

The team would like to say a huge thank you to all of the parents and grandparents that came to the Macmillan cakemorning!

So many people baked amazing cakes and biscuits for the cake sale, and lots of money was raised for a very worthy cause!

They also welcomed several grandparents to the nursery to celebrate ‘National Grandparents Day’, which was lovely!

And lots of parents also came in to stay and play!

They all had a go at baking shortbreads, decorating them and even eating them at snack time!

 

Great fun had by all – and all for a good cause!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Explore Jungle Roleplay! 

Take a look at Flying Start @ Cornwall College’s amazing jungle role play area in their pre-school department  !

The preschool children have been learning about their theme ‘All Around The World’ all through the summer holidays… and their final part of the theme was to go to the jungle!

They have created their own hide, where the children lie on their tummies with their binoculars and watch carefully for animals going by and listen for jungle sounds (the CD really helps!).

The children also dress up as animals and re-enact this!

The children have also been learning about where fruit is grown and which countries it has come from… they even used some rainforest and jungle fruits for their focused drawing activities!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Visit Heartlands With Mr. Squirrel!

Flying Start @ Cornwall College Visit Heartlands With Mr. Squirrel!
The holiday club and oldest pre-school children went on a trip to Heartlands… and took Mr Squirrel with them, who was very hungry!
The children foraged for Mr Squirrel’s snacks, finding different natural objects they thought he might like to feast on… they looked for a well balanced diet of crunchy items, smooth items,
different colours, and even some sweeties (flower petals!)!!
When it started to rain, the children found a big tree to shelter under, and they all looked over the bridge into the water but decided not to try to catch a fish for Mr Squirrel!
Then they went to the café to make him comfy and let Mr Squirrel eat all of his plates of food, whilst the children and staff enjoyed a hot chocolate!
What a fun trip!
