Flying Start @ Duchy Babies Do Welly-Boot Painting!

The babies at Flying Start @ Duchy have had great fun getting creative, wearing their welly boots!

With the help of the staff, the babies put their wellies on, and dipped them into paint!

 

Then they walked up and down the big sheet of paper and made colourful footprints!

Flying Start @ Duchy Get Messy With Large Scale Art!

The babies at Flying Start @ Duchy have enjoyed getting messy with some large scale art painting projects!

The babies sat on a huge sheet of paper, and lots of colourful paints, and drove their cars through the paint to make amazing tracks!

Some of the children also decided to walk across the paint, meaning they had paint on their feet and made their own feet prints – which looked brilliant too!

Great fun!

Flying Start @ Duchy Host Forest Stay & Play!

Flying Start @ Duchy Host Forest Stay & Play!

The toddlers and their parents had a great time in the Forest going on a Bear Hunt, inspired by their current theme!

The fun kicked off with reading the story at nursery with the children and their parents, and then they all headed off down to the forest with pictures in their hands that they had to look for!

The children looked high and low, in trees, in the leaves and behind logs and twigs to find their pictures… Once they had found their pictures they headed to the stream to splash and splosh just like in the story!

Then they went squelch, squelch in the mud where they had to be careful not to lose their wellies!

They ended the trip by walking through the forest looking for the bear in the cave! The children used their homemade binoculars and found the bear!

A big thank you to the toddler parents for joining in with the Stay & Play, and well done to the staff for putting on a great fun session!

The children and staff from Flying Start @ Duchy have been on a visit to Appleby Lodge Nursing Home.

The children sang to the residents, who joined in on the songs that they knew and then clapped to show their appreciation!

They also took some pictures with them to complete some colouring, which the children shared with the residents and coloured their pictures together.

The children really liked this visit and were very confident with the residents, and are looking forward to returning at Christmas to do a Carol Service!

A lovely trip for all, and a great way for the nursery to get out into the community!

So much fun!

Flying Start @ Duchy Celebrate Harvest Festival With Art!

The toddlers at Flying Start @ Duchy had great fun celebrating the Harvest Festival, getting creative and doing vegetable printing!

They carefully painted their vegetables with lovely bright paints, and talked all about the fruit and vegetable they were using, and also the different colours of these, and the paints!

Later, when they were dry, they all cut them out carefully and put them in a special harvest basket – that they have also made!
