Flying Start @ Marjon Go On A Trip To Plymouth Hoe!
The pre-school department at Flying Start @ Marjon went out on an exciting trip to Plymouth Hoe!
On the hoe, they collected lots of lovely pebbles ready for their new shepherds hut…

The shepherds hut will be a new space in the nursery garden, for them to learn and explore in an outdoor-focused classroom!

Flying Start @ Marjon Have Great Fun At Their Summer Fair!

Flying Start @ Marjon Have Great Fun At Their Summer Fair! 
Flying Start @ Marjon held their amazing summer fair again at the Marjon nursery, after the great success it has been before!
It was packed with parents and children, who had no shortage of fun activities to do… with a bouncy castle, ponies on parade, glitter tattoos, flips flops, raffle and much
more!!
Look at all these amazing stalls…
They raised an amazing £260 for the mental health charities Mind and Invictus Trust, in acknowledgement of children’s mental health – thank you to everybody for your donations and for spending so generously!
Thank you to all that attended, and a huge thank you & well done to Marjon nursery staff Naomi and Hannah Gibson for organising the day!  Manager Vicky says she cannot
thank you these two individuals enough for their continued commitments and enthusiasm they show within Flying Start!

Flying Start @ Marjon Paint To Music!

Flying Start @ Marjon Continue Their Creative Streak…

Painting to music in the garden!

Embracing the weather the children listened to fast music and slow music to explore how their painting might change!

Listening to the rhythm and choosing their colours to reflect the feel of the music the children got messy and very creative!

What a lovely way to enjoy some time outside.

Flying Start @ Marjon’s Yoga Retreat…

Flying Start @ Marjon Are Calm and Collected Even In This Hot Weather!

The children have been practicing their calm and peaceful mindset, regardless of the hot weather in their yoga sessions.

They have thoroughly enjoyed Gemma from Jittabugs coming in to nursery to support this…

Expressing themselves through music, stretches and movement is supporting the drive of the nursery to provide more creative opportunities for the children.

Taking a deep breath and embracing how we feel helps the children to be more aware of who they are and learn how to express themselves!

Flying Start @ Marjon Problem Solve and Construct Outside!

Flying Start @ Marjon’s Preschool Children Create A Problem Solving Activity!

In the garden the children used the loose parts to create their own play…

Balancing and building together the children used the downhill slope of the garden to create their own tunnel.

They used pipes, tubes and wood to create a super long structure for their balls to roll down!

Great team work and thinking skills were evident throughout the activity! Well done pre-schoolers!

Flying Start @ Marjon Toddlers Have A Wedding!
The toddler department at Flying Start @ Marjon have been looking at ‘The Scarecrows Wedding’ storybook as their theme this term…
And this week they went to the local chapel, to have a go at acting out a wedding, like in the story!!
They had a brilliant time learning about this tradition, going through the routine, and understanding that only the bride and groom stand in front of the alter!

It is great to get outside not just for fresh air, but also to enjoy the calming activity of gardening, which the children love!
