Flying Start @ Marjon Support England for the World Cup!

Flying Start @ Marjon Support England for the World Cup!
To join in with the World Cup, each of our nurseries have been given a country from the final 8 football teams in a Flying Start sweepstake, to explore and support in each nursery!
Flying Start @ Marjon had home luck in the World Cup sweepstake, and got England!
 
The children had great fun making England flags and signs, they all joined in and played football in the garden, and then danced around the nursery to ‘Three Lions’!
And some of the children even came into nursery in their football kit!
Check out their brilliant team photo!

Flying Start @ Marjon Pre-School Do Gardening Club!

The pre-schoolers at Flying Start @ Marjon have been putting their sunhats and sun cream on, and getting out in the lovely weather doing some gardening!

The pre-schoolers have all been working together to put soil in the tyres to make planters, and planting bulbs!

   And as you can see from the photos, the children got very stuck in and enjoyed their gardening!

And a great way to spend hours out in the lovely Marjon garden as well!

Flying Start @ Marjon Pre-School Do Sensory Walk!

Flying Start @ Marjon Do Pre-School Sensory Walk!

The pre-school department at Flying Start @ Marjon have been exploring sensory play with a fun game out in the garden…

With lots of trays of different substances and materials in them, set out in a line, the children went barefoot and walked through them!

They made lots of reactions to all the different sensations and textures, and had lots of chats about how it felt afterwards, and what they could see, feel and smell!

    

What a great sensory challenge!

Flying Start @ Marjon Have A Visit From Bee Keepers!

Flying Start @ Marjon Have A Visit From Bee Keepers!
A big thank you to the Mount Edgecumbe Cornish Bee Group who visited Flying Start @ Marjon to see the children!
The pre-school and toddler children were absolutely fascinated listening to the beekeeper and seeing the kit…
The beekeeper taught and showed the children (and the staff!) lots of interesting things about bees and how they help us in the environment, which is really important.
Then, the children even got to try on the full protective bee-keeper kit!
Thanks so much to the Mount Edgecumbe Cornish Bee Group for this brilliant visit to the nursery!

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!

Flying Start @ Marjon Babies Do Easter Art!

Flying Start @ Marjon Babies Do Easter Art!

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!
