Flying Start @ Marjon Toddlers Go On A Bug Hunt!

Flying Start @ Marjon Toddlers Go On A Bug Hunt!

The toddler department at Flying Start @ Marjon have been out and about lots recently, enjoying forest school in the sunshine!

The toddlers had a brilliant time going on a bug hunt around the garden… finding lots of interesting bugs and worms to look at!

What brilliant exploring!

Then the children went inside to do some crafts using natural treasure they’d found, and even made some stick men!

  

What fantastic forest school learning, Marjon!

The babies at Flying Start @ Marjon have been getting creative & joining in with a big collage of an Easter egg!

Using lovely pastel colour tissue paper, the children really enjoyed scrunching it up and place it on with the glue… and they all joined in to make a big picture!

The babies were delighted with their creation – look how fab it looks!

   

Great work, Marjon!

Flying Start @ Marjon Toddlers Go On Their Own Bear Hunt!

Flying Start @ Marjon Toddlers Go On Their Own Bear Hunt!

The toddlers at Flying Start @ Marjon have been reading one of their favourite classic stories… ‘We’re going on a bear hunt!’ So the staff decided to create a bear hunt of their own for the children to go on!

The staff used a variety of resources to create a bear hunt within the toddler room including a swirling whirling snowstorm and thick oozy mud!

The toddlers had a great time on their bear hunt, and had brilliant reactions!

They really enjoyed exploring this activity and feeling all of the different textures and making all of the noises… great fun!

Well done Marjon!

The toddlers at Flying Start @ Marjon have been getting arty, and trying out lots of different fruit & vegetables for some paint stamping!

The staff cut up the fruit & vegetables so that the children can dip them in the paint to see what kind of prints they can make…

  

They made wonderful colourful prints with carrots, oranges, potatoes, and much more!

Flying Start @ Marjon Have A Visit From A Diver!

Flying Start @ Marjon Have A Visit From A Diver!

The pre-school department at Flying Start @ Marjon had a very special visit from one of the mummy’s, who does underwater diving!

She talked to the children all about what it is like to swim under water, and showed them all the equipment she wears and uses to keep safe under the water!

Then the children had an amazing time trying on the equipment and pretending to be a diver…

The children took it in turns to try on the flippers, the goggles, and even the oxygen tank backpack!

A huge thank you to this mummy for taking time out of her day to come and tell the children all about diving, which was so exciting!

Flying Start @ Marjon Pre-School Go On A Bug Hunt!

Flying Start @ Marjon Pre-School Go On A Bug Hunt!

The pre-school at Flying Start @ Marjon have been out and about exploring and learning at Forest school!

They went on a big bug hunt looking for creatures… They started off by looking at the different textures the bugs use for their houses and talked about the similarities and differences in their environments.

Then they got their equipment ready with their binoculars, their magnifying glasses, and their bug lists on clipboards! Then they went off into the forest to explore…

The children searched high and low…

And they found big, little, colourful, and dark coloured bugs! They were hiding away under rocks and logs, and the children were really careful when they found them, and put them back gently too. Then they ticked them off on their sheets!

  

They learned lots & found lots of bugs on their very successful bug hunt… well done Marjon pre-school!
