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!

The children and staff at Flying Start @ Marjon have been taking part in gardening workshops, and getting their hands dirty!!

 

They’ve been laying out new soil, using their watering cans, and planting new seeds in their special gardening patches!

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

Flying Start @ Marjon Visit The Local Hospital!

Flying Start @ Marjon Visit The Local Hospital!
The toddler department at Flying Start @ Marjon have been reading a fantastic story called ‘Harry and His Bucketful of Dinosaurs’, which they’ve been really enjoying!
In the story, Harry’s Nan had a visit to the hospital… so the toddlers went on a walk around the local hospital, to link the story to real life!

The very friendly staff were delighted to see the children & say Hello!
