Flying Start @ Helston have had a very special visit in nursery this week… it was Santa Claus!

The children were so excited to see Santa, and they each received a present from him!

The children all waited patiently to see him and were on their best behaviour!

They also had their Christmas dinner with all the trimmings… All the children came together in one room to enjoy the festive feast!

    

The children all had fun pulling the crackers and listening to the funny jokes.

What a lovely festive time of year at Flying Start @ Helston!

The children at Flying Start @ Helston have been dealing with some very important Christmas post…

They’ve been writing all their wishes down in letters to Santa, and then the children got their coats on and went on a walk to the Post Office to buy stamps, and post their letters to Santa in the North Pole!!

We hope the Royal Mail can make a special delivery to the North Pole…

   Look how happy and well behaved these children are Santa!

Flying Start @ Helston Go On An Autumn Nature Walk!

All the children at Flying Start @ Helston have been getting out on lovely autumn walks to the local park!

At the park, they’ve been busy collecting bits and pieces of the nature around them as part of their theme this term, which is Autumn!

The children looked at all the lovely colours of the leaves, and tried to pick up some of the fallen leaves of each colour, as well as some sticks!

  

The children also really enjoyed running through the huge leaf piles and the sound it made as it crunched under their feet!

The pre-schoolers at Flying Start @ Helston have been thinking and talking about how they look, and their facial features…

Using mirrors to look at themselves first, they painted pictures of their faces!

They chose paint colours for their hair, skin, and eyes, and created these self portraits!

They all had great fun and were very proud of their artwork too!

They sat on the big tractor, and looked at all the baby chicks, chickens, rabbits, goats and pigs!

They then went to the milk parlour and looked at the machines that help milk the cows…

And finished off their trip with a delicious ice-cream from the café!

    

What a great day out!

Flying Start Managers Go On Annual Away Day!

Flying Start Managers Go On Annual Away Day!

The Managers from all of our Flying Start Nurseries got together in Wadebridge for their annual Away Day!

This is a chance for all the managers to train together, enhance and improve areas of their professional practice, and get creative with trying a new skill or activity…

This year, they did a sculpting workshop with acclaimed local sculptor Richard Austin.

They all got stuck in and had a go at crafting these fantastic big clay heads!

Thank you to Richard for the expertise during the workshop, and well done to our managers for their amazing efforts. Thank you also to all our customers and families, for understanding the importance of our annual training day – so that our managers can inspire and lead!
